GB Outdoor Flo Grow

At the beginning of May, I gave a few cuts to a friend of mine - the purple and green Flos I have (Dutch Passion line), and a G13. Yesterday I went up to see how he was getting on. And I was astonished. We have experienced a so-called 'heatwave' recently (yeah right), but it's been damn sunny, all the same. He has all the plants in pots, and they're in full sun from 10am to 6pm. Given the 'delicate but elegant' nature of the purple Flo (grown from seed at least), I was amazed to see a 5-foot monster rolled out. As was the green version. And the G13. And two Jamaicans he's growing also

He's flowering them early, and so has been covering them every night for the last week by placing them into a blacked-out shed to give them 12/12. He will do this until Sept 21st, and then leave them to finish off, frost permitting (should be OK - not sure about the Jamaicans though!)

Assuming there are no problems, I will definitely be there on harvest day with a camera. And a rather large baggie for my share, methinks...

So here we go - purple first, then the green, then one of them all together in a family shot...

And both together (purple on left) with the G13 in the back centre:

Only problem is it's not my grow - it's a friend's.
However, I will definitely get a smoke or two, given the size they could end up, and the fact that without my cuts he'd be smoking dried Jamaican shade leaves...

Just a quick update to this thread, with a few pics of my single outdoor Flo - the purple pheno. This was put out in early June, and has been severely pinched out since then to keep the height down, for security reasons. It's now about 24" tall, although would be around 36" at least had I not pinched it out so much. It's settled now, and I won't be pinching it again - I anticipate flowering to begin in the next week or so.
The growing tips are a beautiful magenta color, and the stems are just the most gorgeous inky purple - with the blue-green leaves, it's actually quite a stealth plant (so far!), as it's looks so exotic - I'm hoping by the time it's in full flower (and fully purple), it will be almost unrecognisable to prying eyes.

Well, the nights are drawing in here now, and my outdoor purple Flo is starting to bud up nicely. No real purpling of the leaves yet, but the calyxes are slowly turning, and some trichomes appearing. After observing my friend's version, who force-flowered his on 1st August, the purple should start in the next week or two. His is a week from harvest, and the whole plant is now the colour of a ripe aubergine...

Here's a few pics from yesterday - the leaves are finally starting to turn purple...

Orange

I'm an even happier grower now, as I just chopped my indoor plant down an hour ago! To avoid endlessly copying the pics around, here's the link:

As you can see, it looks nothing like the outdoor one - but these are both cuts from the same mother plant, taken from the same branch, no less...a great example of how different environments can affect this chameleon-like plant...

Sorry for the excessive photos of this plant, but I haven't grown one outdoors for years. And in my own garden, never, so I'm anxious to preserve every moment - you never know. Also, I have to give this great camera back to my friend tomorrow...

Anyway, the shade leaves are purpling properly now, as are most of the top-facing calyxes. There's some nice trichome formation occurring, especially under the buds where there's some protection from the rain - which has been intense the last couple of days. I'm aiming for an end of October harvest on this one, based on what it looks like now - gorgeous...

Elevator Man, great how the Flo changes colour. You are sure going to have some nice dank fruit. I sure like Flo and have started a second small indoor cabinet grow after some difficulties finding the optimum cloning conditions.

I would like to try some Flo next year in a greenhouse. I think she would do well (at least I could grow taller and get a better yield).

Peace
