Summer 2017 Start of Grow June 1

Recommended Posts

20 days before the official start of Summer.

 

Bought some clones yesterday and transplanted them into 1 gal pots.

 

Had to bring them inside though, looked too cold on their first day.

 

It was 59 last night. Going to leave them out tomorrow I think, didn't want to shock them with a transplant and a cold night on their first day.

 

Many people started in April around here but many people have a lot of problems too.

 

First year I'm growing in the right time, we'll see how it goes.

I've got a few of those clones left, it got really hot and half way fried them.

 

I don't know what I was thinking putting them right out into the sun. I forget things sometimes when I'm bhanging.

 

 

Have a new batch going now. I gave them a week or so in the shade before putting them in the hut.

 

It was 110 in there today but I have an extra shade cloth and a fan on them mid day.

 

Supposed to get hot later this week.

 

They look like they're handling it ok.

 

This is the latest I've ever started but this is a Summer grow.

 

Might be a late harvest but you can grow year round here if you do it right.

Looking at your pics thought you were in Arizona or something, hot dry looking there :) Nice, gonna follow along, never did an outdoor grow. You all are lucky you can get more then one harvest in a year.

I feel very fortunate to live where I do.

 

Most of my family is from Texas and Oklahoma.

 

I live on one hill and my cousin lives on a different hill.

 

I yell at him across the holler.

 

My wife and I have 6 dogs.

 

We may be hillbillies.

Current pics of grow on 7-8-17.

 

Lost a good plant today, squirrels knocked it off the table and broke it then it was baked.

 

It was 116 yesterday, maybe a degree less today, tomorrow is supposed to be 10 degrees cooler.

 

Plants seem to be holding up well in the heat. Seems like they need more sun, they're under plastic and 22% shade cloth.

 

Kind of going slow, they've all been transplanted into straight Ocean Forest (with a little added perlite).

 

I had tried to mix my own dirt with a nursery mix I bought locally, looks good but doesn't work like OF.

 

Coming along...

Awesome Tacman,

I wish I had the space to do something like that.

Your plants are looking extremely healthy although they aren't all that big.

I am very interested in your grow.

What is your humidity like in your greenhouse?

I have a lot of open screen so my humidity is whatever is going on at the time.

 

Like this week we have some moisture coming up from the south so it's hot and muggy, kind of high humidity for us.

 

But usually we measure humidity in the single digits.

 

 

Just found 2 plants going into flower about a week ago, put lights coming on for a half hour at night to try and keep the rest in veg.

 

If those are all autoflower or something then I could have a small harvest this year.

Well last night was the first night without light coming on, that and I fed them flower nutes.

 

 

I usually start too early so this year I thought I would start too late.

 

The plants are not that big, I've been holding off flower with light coming on for 15min, off for 15min and back on for another 15min. every night.

 

It's kept them pretty veg but they're really wanting to flower.

 

 

Some of the setback is them being really young when the days were really hot.

 

Then I was trying to learn to mix my own dirt. Been trying a lot of different things.

 

So this will be a small harvest but it should be of good quality.

 

I'll get some pics soon.

 

Everything is in it's final pots except for 4 plants in 5 gal pots that I will transplant today.

 

We still have lots of sun and I'm going to do a Winter grow this year, at least I plan to.
