  1. i have a 3 day old clone that was takin off a mature female indica plant how big should I let it get before planting outside? I have a very good spot to put it where it will get direct sun from 7am till 9pm.... how much of the ground should I dig up and replace with fresh soil???
  2. Once at 8-10" it'd probably be ok, so long as it got sufficient water. Not sure what your natural soil is like so couldn't tell you on that.
  3. well I've never grown outdoors, and It's gonna be planted next to a pond that runs off the river.. hopefully it will get water from that if not I can water it.. but would it be enough to dig out like 4 feet deep and 4 feet wide and re-fill it with good soil? I don't know how big the root system is gonna get outdoors so I just wanna give it more than what it's gonna need to be sure it is in good soil cause the soil down there is basically hard mud.
  4. I'd be skeptical of planting too close to a pond. Sure, you'll get easy access to water, but if you were to get a heavy-enough rain your roots could be underwater for days, choking them of sufficient oxygen. I would think your best bet is to seek out the highest ground you can get w/ good light and cover that's still in close proximity to your pond. Then as you need to water, just go scoop outta the pond. I wouldn't worry about feeding it until fall either, pond water is usually ripe with nitrogen.

    As for hole size, a 2'x2'x2' is plenty big for a single plant.
