    anyone prefer to use autos outdoors to avoid the short growing seasons? or just let it go the longer route and run the risk of early season front and last season wet season?

    Can autos be planted out a bit earlier due to their background genetics? I'm at about the 45th, 46th parallel and I'm about to pop a few gorilla grow plants.

    Never had a problem with it. Any males or hermies get the chop as soon as they can be sexed. Hermies are a rarity.

    I have a frost warning for tonight. I probably wont sleep.. Plants were about 8" tall when i set them out about 2 weeks ago. I cant visit them until another week or 2 if its absolutely necessary. But if the frost tlputs a hurtin on them theres nothing i can do anyways correct? Should i be concerened? Ive never had frost this late. Weather is fd up lately..

    The ones i can cover i will. Most i cant,, oh well thats the nature if the beast i guess. Im germinating a bunch more seeds just in case to cover the losses.. Id rather have to many than not enough , but to many creates its own problem since i dont have the heart to just kill what is not needed..

    My plants have been out since May 1st I had them in a green house for a week they grew amazing I trans planted them and they started getting there asses kicked by the cold. They kept growing very slowly but now it's June they grew up from 6 inches to 2 feet in the cold weather And I got mostly sativa pure sativa at that so I'm not concerned about cold weather people worry to much in my opion cause my
    Plants took. Like 4 frost and still are growing and only are growing even stronger and stink like a fucking skunk. I smell them from. 100 feet away and they are mid veg

    I developed a technique similar to those used in orchards with my guerilla grows that allowed me to grow in harsher climates for longer flowering breeds. That misted the plants but it is not for the novice as mold can quickly become an issue. If you are guerilla or outdoor growing and want to grow a longer strain I have several techniques that I can share and am developing a website that aims to describe these techniques along with others. Remember if planting a long flowering strand that cold air sinks so do not plant in low areas and if you have them potted put them up 5+ feet from the ground if possible when cold conditions are expected.

    Is it possible to reach your grow easily? For early planting a tarp can be cut into a mini portable "greenhouse" for each plant. It will not impact growth due as photosynthesis occurs during the day so as long as you remove it during the day you will be fine. The slow growth is usually due to overall cold conditions but the use of a clear tarp can be used to create a pseudo daytime greenhouse although CO2 can become an issue if not done correctly
