    How hot is too hot???

    My plants are having a hard time right now. During the day they look like have spent some time in the oven!!!
    But at the same time, next morning they look perfectly healthy
    Is these ok, or it will delay flowering, or something like that???
    Thanks you all

    Just make sure the soil doesn't get bone dry.

    Don't over water. Moist soil is better than saturated. Let it dry out in between watering, but not bone dry. Take a tooth pick to the soil..

    you need a bigger pot for those big plants. bigger pot will help cut down the everyday watering.

    Holy shit that's a lot of (potential) pot for such a little pot
    - I really don't like to refer to it as pot, but I couldn't resist

    Yeah... the roots are probably so dense in that thing you could keep dumping water in there 24/7 and it would keep chuggin

    I wear a size 13 shoe... I would NOT be too comfortable spending much time in a ladies 6.... Nahh mean? Shit looks nice otherwise

    Your plants should be fine. I've grown outdoors for several years here outside of Houston; and this year we've been over 95` since June. No problems. You don't mention if you have plates under your pots, if not, I recommend at least the plastic ones to help retain moisture. You can also use a fine mulch covering the soil. I just use the shredded paper from my shredder. One other point I might mention, is the direct sunlight they're getting; you only need 5 to 6 hours of direct sun light. You might experiment with this.

    As for interrupting flowering? I seriously doubt it, just follow your watering/feeding regimen, and nature should take care of the rest. My plants have just started flowering, and should finish early Oct.

    I manage to have two outdoor harvests a year however, because of the milder winters here in Houston. I have rooted clones by the first of Feb, and if the temps are to cold, I'll keep them under lights 20/4. Weather permitting, I'll take them outside for natural light <and electric bill savings>, and take them into the grow shed to finish the 20 hour light cycle each evening. By the middle of march, they're ready for full-time natural outside growth. The short springtime photo period throws them into flowering, with plenty of time to finish. Also, around the 1st of April, I'm starting my summer plants that finish in Oct.
    If I can figure it out, I'll post some of this springs photos...

    Hi, I grow in a hot dry area without much problems. It typically gets into the triple digits during our summers. As long as the plants are around two feel tall they can handle it seedlings not so much. I keep mjy girls in a greenhouse and because the GH retains moisture I only need to water them every other day but the two males I am keeping out in the open need daily watering. You can put a layer of perlite over your soil to help keep things cooler. Are you growing where you took the pictures? If so those cinderblocks/bricks do retain a lot of heat. They do look good.

    i agree your plants look great! tho like the guy said above the plants are kinda big for such small pots. You may want to repot them (before they start to flower) or just keep up the heavy twice a day schedual. i grow in pots too, and the temp today is over 105. I painted some of the pots white to keep the roots from getting to hot in the sun, but otherwise the heat dosent seem to bother them, but if they dry out...they wilt like crazy. I do get some shade tho on the garden bout 5pm or so. You have some real beauties there!
    Good Growin'!

    The Answer...

    is in you my friend

    If you are flowering completely outdoors, it depends on your local photoperiod. Unless you are growing an auto-flowering strain.
    If you are flowering in and outdoors for some reason... it's probably due to insufficient dark periods, causing re-veg (or just continued veg).
    I'm not real clear on your photos , but they look like pre-flowers... which won't increase in mass until the 12/12 photoperiod.

    But ehh... I'm

    Not really Keeko!

    For my needs, it suits me well! Its a way ive found to control the size of my girls, cause i cant afford to have bigger plants.
    The first outdoor girl i harvested, weigh in almost 1/4 pound of ready to consume buds!!! These only gilr will pay my trip to Europe these Xmas
    Ive attached some pics from the harvest.
    Anyway, since i still have a month until i put some more plants outside, i guess i will give the present girls that time to reveal their real intentions. Or face the consequences
    Catch you guys later!!!

    Sizing...

    I think the general rule of is 1 gallon per foot of desired finishing height.

    Obviously with training or pruning, where the "height" does not really reflect on the size/density of the root production... larger pots are needed for shorter plants. Does that makes sense? It's been a long day

    Hey Keeko!!!

    The pics you asked! Got a new camera now
    My babes are looking fine now that the extreme heat is gone, but i will follow your advise and repot it.
    Is it less hard on my girl if i transplant her just before entering the dark cycle or it doesnt matter???
    Seeya!!!

    they do look a lot better now. Nice and healthy growth.
    it doesnt matter if your replant during the light or dark...i always go for the light though, so i can see better.
    if you do repot be careful not to agitate the roots too much as this is an important time in your plants life.

    Just repotted my girl.

    And also sprayed her with a pyrethrum solution, cause the mites are back again
    Lets wait and see if the bigger pot will really make the diference.
    Thanks anyway Keeko

    Besides the girl with the mites, these other one started showing these white marks lately!
    Any ideas of what kind of bugs could be doing these to her???
    Its easier to know what you are looking for
    Take it easy!!!
