Boss’s Michigan Outdoor Grow 2019

Discussion in 'Outdoor Grow Journals' started by Boss35, Jun 3, 2019.

  1. Hey guys first post but longtime viewer. I just thought I’d share my outdoor grow this year for educational reasons as it seems there aren’t a ton of great ones out there. Certainly not going to be anything crazy, just a cheap, low maintenance, grow. Gonna get right to it. Growing in Southern Michigan wet land, my 2nd grow, old bagseeds I found from who knows where. Planted the seeds in solo cups with FFOF on April 16th and all 5 sprouted by the 18th. They were under a 240w LED light in my closet until it was warm enough to get outside. Transplanted to 10 gallon smart pots perminately on May 4th. May 16th 4 plants made the journey outside. Today is June 2nd so I will go back and update to this date. No nutrients or any additives yet, will be starting the FF trio in the near future.

Things are going well in the swamp, all 4 seem to be thriving despite 1 breaking over the other day (not bad for tornados on the ground), tied it back up and seems to be recovering nicely. I haven’t had much time to go out there and chop down the vegetation and properly set the fence up but is on the to do list. Will try my best to update every 3 or so days from here on out, enjoy! (Last 3 pics are duplicate sorry)

Had a chance to stop out today, all 4 seem to be doing great. No new deer damage or any of the sort and the broken one (pic 3) seems relatively unphased by the ordeal. These babies are starting to get big I’m super excited. Any feedback/opinions welcome!

Awesome news considering they were all bagseed. I wish I could of went bigger than the 10 gallon pots But funds were a little tight. How much bigger do you guys think these things will get? I was originally shooting for around 1lb dry weight if all goes well, think that’s pretty realistic between the 3? Any feedback appreciated.

  17. Hey man fellow Michigander here!! You need to top those plants bro. Your gonna have monsters. I am on schedule and mine aren’t half that size. Yours are lookin great just need to top them, bend them over (LST) and cover those pots with some vegetation or burlap. Keeps them cooler and hides them from the sky viewers.

  18. Nice to meet ya and thanks for the feedback. I tried Fimming them earlier on but did not cut low enough. I’ve thought about trying to top again but just kind of let them go for a while to see how’d they do and they did lol Think It would be ok to top these at this stage? They’re about 5’ tall. I’m not worried about height or any of that, I’m on well isolated private land. Any real yield increase from topping an outdoor plant? I’m Actually heading there today to get things set up properly and going to try to do some lst. Thanks for the input man I like the burlap idea.

Cut down and removed the male, rearranged plot for better light, got everything fenced in and got everything supported for now. They had some natural bending going on from the weather and I took advantage of tieing the bends. Guess you could call it a start to LST? Anyway all is well my now 3 plants are loving life.
