1. Your plants will flower whenever the daylength is reduced to the point that the plant senses its season is ending and it needs to reproduce. For most indica containing plants, thats around 14.5 hours. The strain you choose will be important. If you choose something like "early girl" then it will finish late sept. If you choose a late flowering plant, you could have problems.

2. After theyve fully flowered and the buds are hard. They can dry in a few days to a week or more. Depends on temps

3. In ground is usuallly better even if you replace the soil. The soil temp of a pot can mimic air temps and can require much more watering. After months of watering, soil in outdoor containers can be leached of nutes.

good luck

Bro im also from north west indiana about an hour from chicago, I buy everything from the hydro shop in new buffalo, has everything you need.

I would buy ff happy frog, some wormcastings, and some perlite and prep your holes with it at least 2 weeks before you transplant. I used earth juice grow, bloom, catalyst, and maxicrop soluable seaweed in my past outdoor grows. I had great results using this last year and its organic.

I dont put them outdoors until early to mid may, before that its too cold but I think were getting an early spring this year. They will start budding late july early august depending on strain. Use neem oil as an insecticide, trust me on this here bugs are bad and they eat.
