  1. I just moved into a new apartment and i have a little patio, only thing is its behind another building so it dosent get alot of sun. It proally gets about a good 3-4 hours of decent sun a day. Is this enough to grow a plant, keep in mind its summertime so this is gonna be 80-100 degree california sunshine. Lemme know if this is enough sunshine to even bother trying to grow with. thanks

  4. 5-6 direct, and indirect the rest of the day and not in deep dark shadows.
     
  5. 6 hours in summer is considered direct full sun.
     
  6. Normally, vegetative growth needs above 12-13 hrs sunlight per day. Flowering will start when the sun has backed off to about 12 hrs per day. In the UK (whereIam) I will start the grow about now - I'll get the plants out about 1 June (veg growth June July August - flowering mid-Aug Sept - harvest early to mid Oct).

    4 -5 hours of natural light is very poor, I'm afraid. Any plant grown in that environment will be very thin, sparse.

  7. I disagree....for the vegetative stage my plant got around 4 hours of light...strong stem and very healthy...flowering stage it only got 2-3 hours of morning sunlight and is budding at the expected rate...harvest is in 1 week and it looks fine to me
     
  8. But then again, that could just be this strain. But of course, the more light the better but the plant I have has done considerably well. Also, I made a mistake on the previous post. DUring its vegetative stage it got around 6 hours of light which is plenty. But during the flowering stage it has only gotten 3 hours of direct sunlight which is not a lot at all but it is budding at the expected rate.
