    For those of you who are wondering when the correct time to put clones outside to veg naturally, I had success putting them outside on the 13th of June. Zero growth issues. No pre-flower nonsense. I was able to get 25days of pure veg growth out of my indicas before the plants structure started to change. I was taking pics on a daily basis to compare. On July 5th, everything started to change. Literally overnight. I still have two sativa's that are in veg. They started with 24/0. Then 18/6 for a full month, then tapered down to 16/8. When transplanted outdoors on the 2nd of June, I used a cheap 15watt bulb to artifically stretch day to 15hours and 30min so that the plant wouldn't go into some form of shock going from 16/8 to natural 14hrs and 50min of daylight (that includes civil daylight, which also read on the luxmeter). I didn't want to transition straight to having one full less hour gap of light. Then on the 7th I took a half hour away from timer. Then on 13th I let them go naturally. Success. Was afraid that these would snap into flower right away.

  2. I'm in Baja California right below the border. So if it worked for me on the 13th it should literally work for everyone above my latitude

  4. Did you hand tie your trellising?
     
  5. Obviously strain dependent. The ogs
    Negative. I weaved the pvc piping thru it. Did the longer sides first. Then weaved the shorter tubes.
     
  6. You can buy that trellising like that? IS it string, or plastic? I used some of that plastic last season and my dog got it wrapped around her neck.
     
  7. I put mine out the weekend before mother's day. With supplemental lighting to keep them from flowering early so almost 90 days in veg.

    About an hour ago. Raised bed size 36x36x12. A little under 5 feet tall and about 5 feet wide. Flower is just starting. Probably stretch for another 2 weeks.

  12. Looking good! I like the soaker hose idea. I don't have that option as I have to tote the water up to my grow by truck and then pump it out. So I pre mix the nutes, and drive a 275 gal tote about 1000' up our hill to my grow. It a bit of an inconvenience.

  13. The soaker hose works pretty good. Cheapo from the 99 cent store. They aren't perfect by any stretch of the imagination. They leave a few dry areas in my boxes. So I've still got to hand water a couple times a week.

  14. Yeah I can relate. I like the saving money part of it! I am watering every other day with this triple digit heat wave we've been having. It is supposed to start cooling down today. Bottom trimming today and watering with a compost tea tomorrow. 2 more weeks to transition.

    Happy Harvesting!
     
  15. Have you been getting hit hard by grasshoppers this year? They have been stupid thick this year. I've planted a pineapple sage a bit away from my cannabis. It seems to have lured the little bastards away from the med crop.
     
  16. It's nylon string. I bought it locally. It was 60x10 for 150 pesos. Around 12 bucks US. It can hold 30kilos of pressure

  18. They aren't as bad as they were last season. Very title crop damage.Although this year I weed wacked heavily before planting and then I followed up with my spray rig and sprayed Sevin around the perimeter. They have been around but I have also been using AZAMAX. I will start spraying BT very soon for caterpillars. Up here in the foothills pests are hard to manage if one isn't on top of it!

  20. I've been pretty lucky so far. I used to have a ton of grasshoppers but so far in the past 3-4 months, I've only seen one and I was lucky to be outside when it landed on my plant. Grabbed the bastard and kill it. It was huge. Pretty sure it would have messed stuff up
