hardening off plants?

  1. well i've got some plants that are about 18 inchs tall
    very nice very bushy and lots of TLC put into them

    i stuck some in my outdoor green house for acouple days then was alittle worried about the temperature so i stuck a thermometer beside one and it was reading 100 some degrees so i guess there wasn't enough air circulation to keep the temperature down

    so 2-3 days later there was a freak snow storm and all the plants outside got frost bite while in the green house
    so i moved them all inside and everything that had been frost bitten has falling off or died green and crumbled
    it's been about 2 weeks and all plants have made a full recovery so now i'm ready to stick all the plants outside because we are back to the point where it's to hot inside to keep them and just right outside

    so i was told that plants grown under artifical light need to be hardened off to grow outdoors stick them in shade areas high humidity bring them in at night to help them transition

    how critical is this process cause some days after work i just want to go to bed i don't want to carry a bunch of plants inside for the night and out for the morning
  2. Weed is called weed for a reason. It's one of the hardiest plants in the world.

    That being said, there are a few things you could do to make the transition easier. Put a fan blowing on your plant and that'll thicken the stem the same way lifting weights makes us stronger.

    Don't put them in shade ever. They want direct sunlight. If the temps are going to be below 50ish, I would bring them inside. Otherwise, let them do their thing.
