Hi, I'm new here and wanted to share my experience of growing outdoor in Canada... I grew some bag seeds last summer with tomato fertilizers and not much knowledge/care just for fun, but this season it's gonna be different ! I yielded around 5-6 oz from 3 different unknown strains and some was pretty good ! SEEDS: I ordered them from the Attidude shop and it cost me around 75$ for 12 female seeds. I bought them with my brother-in-law who lives right next door and we're each gonna grow 3 plants. In Canada, more than 3 plants will get you in trouble, under that, if you're unlucky enough to get busted, you can only get a ticket... So why so much seeds ? We wanted to grow 3 different strains to have diversity and for fun, and to be sure we would have at least 6 seeds germinating. If more, easy to find takers or good gift to friends. Here is what we ordered: -3 Northern Lights Special (KC Brains) -4 Purple Power (Female seeds) We got 5 ! -2 Easy Sativa (Female seeds) Freebies: -1 Critical (Dinafem) -1 White Widow We chose these strains because they're supposed to be quick, good for outdoors, low odor, high yield, etc... I received the seeds very fast, about a week, well packaged and you could never guess it was seeds ! GROWING SOIL: I started the seeds in Jiffy pellets for germination and it worked great! after, I'll transfer them in 5" pots with clear domes (greenhouse) I found at the dollar store... These are fantastic for the first weeks ! For soil, I made my own: -50% good soil from Wal-Mart -30% Worm castings (Best Natural compost!) -10% Peat Moss (good humidity retainer) -10% Perlite (aeration) -FRIT or Trace elements (great all minerals bonus) I already bought this for my Bonsais (eBay: Bonsai Mark) I'll be adding shrimp compost later on when transfering to bigger pots ! FERTILIZERS: My goal in growing my own plants is to know that it's good organic weed ! So I was pretty careful on that. I ordered them from eBay for around 110$ and they are all Advanced Nutrients products: -1L Iguana Juice Grow -1L Iguana Juice Bloom -1L Big Bud + Freebies: -50g Big Bud powder -50g Carbo Load powder -50g Bud Blood powder STARTING INDOOR: here we have a very short summer usually, but this year it's gonna be great ! We are at the end of march and there's no more snow already !!! It is sad because it's not normal at all, but my plants will surely benefit from that! They were started around mid-march by the west window but I already had a 48" basic garage/shop Fluorescent and bought 2 tubes (1 daylight / 1 plant and aquarium) for about 10$ at Canadian Tire. This is only going to serve until it is warm enough outside but like I mentionned earlier, we had almost 30 C last week near Montreal and it is the end of march !!! That's it for my basic starting setup !!! PICS to come !
