Going strong in the heat
Just wanted to give update on my 9th outdoor grow in MA.
--9 feminized seeds (2 skunk XL, XT haze, white widow, cheese, cheese bomb, bruce bannerXghost train, northern lights, aloha limone) planted in fox farm happy frog soil under T5 lights on March 23...all popped March 27-29.
--planted in ground in fox farm ocean forest soil April 26 after a couple weeks of outdoor day trips. Holes about 10 gal but should have been 20+
--secure surroundings with fence to keep out deer and people and make MA legal
--nutes have been a duo of things I used in past individually but wanted to combine to get full spectrum of nutes over the year
(Fox Farm Grow Big, Neptune's Harvest) will transition to flowering nutes over next couple weeks. I also add 1 tbsp/gal unsulphured molasses to boost soil microbes during plain water between feedings
--plants supported with stakes and string and one trellised
--plants watered almost daily during latest heat
--plants range in height from ~4.5 ft to ~7 ft
FYI for all new growers, you will get better with each year you grow. Learning from the experts and amateurs on forums like this have made me a better grower.
