Blue Cheese 100 Gallon Organic Outdoor Grow

This is my first attempt to grow a large outdoor marijuana tree. I needed a cold and mold resistant strain that would tolerate cool rainy weather here in the tacoma, washington area.

I got lucky and found one Blue Cheese seed in a $20 eighth from a nearby rec shop called Green Collar Club. Super lucky find, bred for cool and wet UK climates.

I germinated the seed on march, 22, 2017.


A few days later i planted it into a small plastic pot about the size of a solo cup. Filled with kellog's patio plus organic soil, perlite, a pinch of dr. Earth all purpose 5-5-5 fertilizer and a pinch of dolomite lime powder. It was then placed under a 1000w hps a good distance away. It stayed in that pot for about 2 weeks and then went into a 2 gallon pot.

May, 5th, 2017
Bought soil, perlite, and nutrients from home depot.
6 bags 1.5 cu ft kellog's patio plus organic soil
2 bags 2 cu ft vigoro perlite
1 bag 6.75lbs espoma organic dolomite lime
2 bags 8lbs jobe's organic heirloom tomato 2-5-3

So far the plant has been growing naturally and i have not started any pruning fearful i would stunt its vigorous pace of growth. Now that its began growing sideways more than vertical i figured its a good time to start. Someone with experience pruning large outdoor trees care do advise?

I'd have a backup plant or two, just in case you end up with a male. You have all your eggs in one basket so to speak, anything go horribly wrong and its season over. You don't want to go all season outdoor and not have anything to show for it. Make good use of the sun and all those nice products you bought. Its best to have multiple plants for such contingencies. That's just my 2 cents..

Right now I got 34 bagseed babies going outdoors that I just popped about a week ago and I just threw 12 more beans in water to germ yesterday. That'll bring my numbers up to 46 if they all pop. After killing males, I expect to have about 38-40 ladies left. I usually end up with a higher ratio of women than males. Even with all that thought ahead, I could still end up with less than 25-30 plants. Anything can happen between now and harvest time.

@ManyManySpliffs
I hear ya on the backup plants, i usually have mothers and clones going indoors as well. Had to take an unexpected hiatus about 6 months ago and lost my mother plants and equipment.

I assumed the seed was from a hermie, and its showing pistils now so bullet dodged there lol. Honestly i must be really lucky, all like 30 of the bagseeds ive popped over the years have all been female...

This grow is meant to be sort of a test on everything ive learned about organic and outdoor growing, having only done indoor grows with chemical nutes the last ~6.5 years.
I tryed to do this grow as cheap as possible too, in total i spent about $180 and no power bill . My soil and nutrients were off the shelf from home depot which is also a first for me.

@NorCalGrowin
Ive been scared to try outdoor where i live because of the rainy weather...UNTIL NOW!
The main reason i put a plant outside this year is because of its advertised mold resistance.

Still though Ive been thinking about building a cover for it during flower to stay on the safe side. Id like to wait till after the stretch to see how tall it gets.
