Damn It's Bright Out Here!

I have been growing indoors for a minute now and so far have been able to keep the misses and I and the immediate family supplied with smoke.

I live in an only partially enlightened state with legal medical that is still being litigated in the courts. There is no legal home growing of any kind. So I have been keeping it discreet indoors, even though FL is a wonderful outdoor climate for our favorite ladies.

My downfall is that I hate killing clones. I find myself once again with two lovely ladies, a Liberty Haze and a Hawaiian Snow that I have no room for. So...time to move outdoors.

I'm embarking on this grow on my own property and am trying to be as discreet as possible. Even though FL enforcement efforts are nowhere near what they use to be (helicopters etc) I don't see any point in pushing my luck. Accordingly I have planted against the backdrop of a wild tree line that affords some cover.

Nothing fancy. Dug a couple of holes, dumped a 2 CF bag of Miracle Grow Potting Soil and some additional perlite in each hole and threw some landscape cloth on top. I know, I know...I'm going to hell for the Miracle Grow so don't even start...

These ladies have been on an 18/6 light schedule so I guess I'm going to rig up some supplemental lighting for a couple hours a night to keep them in veg. I'm at 30N and have only about 13.5 hours daylight at present. Going to try and avoid the whole flower/revert/flower cycle.

So here I go. First time for everything. Weekly updates unless I screw up sooner.

Peace,
starke

I'm lucky and live in the middle of three acres in a very rural area. I don't think rippers will be an issue.

Dire straits, brothers in arms:

Now the sun's gone to hell
And
The moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We are fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

This cut I keep is kind of that way. A little slower growing too compared to most of my sativa doms. I have a Skywalker Kush I have not run in a while for that reason. Great smoke but a real challenge to get any yield from. Like trying to train a sweet potato vine.

Weekly Update

Today marks two weeks since these two ladies were rudely yanked from their Hempy cups and transplanted into the cruel, hard outside world.

They have spent most of that time trying to acclimate from hydro to Miracle Gro. Not an easy task but they are making progress.

I rigged up a couple of 25W LED bulbs on a timer to kick on for a couple of hours in the middle of the night. So far this is keeping them from wanting to flower.

Next update in a week...or maybe two.

Peace,
starke
