Buds are big but any one got any tips on how to keep these gorgeous plants in great condition in shit weather conditions (besides using lights, mrs wont allow it). Any feeds. Anything??? PLEASE.

Got the same problem here, I've got 8 auto's all budding at the moment and we've had almost constant rain for the last 9 days.
You could put a sheet of perspex over the plants to stop them getting too wet. That way you can control the feeding better. I can't even feed mine because they're already drenched...

At least the ones I planted in some fields near by won't need watering!

Best of luck

mine are actually in my conservatory so u have a bigger problem than me. I feel for you bruv, i really do. I also have just 1 in a near by field thats doing ok (just an easy sativa) but i have 2 autos, a "widow-ryder" and a lowryder/easyryder. My chronic haze is fuckin amazing, huge chrystal covered buds, I have an ice by female thats ok, buds a bit small on her though. Good luck bro. Tom

Lookin at the forcast, its probably gonna get worse before it gets better. Could really do with more sun time. These temps are terrible. I have a clear plastic cover over mine. Theyre doing surprisingly well considering the brutal conditions.

Howdy, i got 16 lush looking semi mature plants on the go, and quite alot of seedlings that have basically just started gonna see what happens. (This is my first outdoor)
I wouldn't go dissing the weather just yet :smoke: mine haven't even shown sex yet but they're looking almost perfect..
I'm sure they don't even mind the rain or the low temps aslong as you can harness in as much as the sun as you can, mine are getting it pretty much all day...its wayyyyyyyyyy more powerful than you think you know, just 1 hour of direct sunlight with no clouds can work wonders I'm tellin' ya no matter what country your in.
I started them inside my conservatory then moved them outside. biggest ones probably only 50cm high max

Main concern for me is the risk of mold... if the rain gets right in the buds when they're flowering I've really no experience to tell what will happen, I might just stick some waterproof plastic/greenhouse material over them for when the time comes...

A pretty intelligent plant know-it-all at the Local head shop said plants have designed themselves over the years to cope with mold and that its usually down to the soil though...dunno whether to take the risk or not...:confused:

I've had some bad experience indoors with mold, but outdoors is much more ventilated..I sprayed my plants all over to foliar feed with little ventilation and kept doing it after thinking the moisture had dried ...
After about 2 weeks the mold had really set in and took over...had to pull em pretty premature...Really don't want that happening folks

although if it does happen, I heard soma from soma seeds talking about this 'silver' stuff i cant remember its exact name, the videos on youtube. It's all natural and you just put it on the mold and it fully gets rid:smoke:

Other than flowering though i really dont think the plants mind too much rain

Nothing like a bit of UK outdoor

Peace :D

mine are doing fine outside man pretty much perfect

haven't even given them their first feeding yet

you grow them with a bulb to start or on your window ledge?

If they're up on there feet they should be fine to put em outside just really do try and get as much sunlight coverage to em as you can for as much as the day as possible.

The more sunlight the less harsh those cold nights

try and protect from wind if thats an issue aswell

wont start flowering till late July - August if its not an autoflowering strain

I started mine in my conservatory so they were used to the sun.

No experience growing with a bulb to start then putting them outside so they may need a little extra time to adapt to the change in light...

I started 8 outside back in late april at the start just to see what happened and one of those is my biggest :smoke:

They can hack it man they just need that sun

peace
