    quick question for socal outdoor

    hey everyone had a plant started from seed unknown genetics and all that,but came from some good smoke,i started it outdoors about 3 weeks ago i bought a cheap wal-mart clamp light and 100 equivalant watt cfl and set it up in my outside storage closet,put it in there at about 10am this mourning,i need it to veg a tad bit faster its only 4 inches tall..

    since i did this and will leave it to veg on 24/0 with the cfl light and put it back outside close to the end of august or sooner will if be able to flower fully here in socal..

    i know it can take certain amount of time im just wondering about the weather

    If your in Southern California put that thing outside. You have nature on your side down there.
    Whoever created this universe left marijuana as a gift to the earth, im just being grateful.

    it looks good so far are you giving it any veg nutes that would help speed the growth up a bit i would think just dont over do it and burn it to death with them

    Looks good man, but like stick said id giver er ferts to help ya with growth. As soon as ya put her outside she will start to bud, coming off 24/0 light cycle. And you will get more then an 1/8, id say at least a half

    No, it usually doesnt get bitter cold in socal in OCtober....maybe by middle or end of Nov in some years. I planted mine late and had them in part shade until the end of July, then I put them in full sun and the seeded plants liked that but not the recent clones I purchased. After they stressed a bit they seem to be fine but not showing the beginnings of flowers like the plants from seeds. These have turned out to be almost all female and are way bigger than the clones.

    The only nutrient I gave during veg every other watering was organic Alaska Fish Emulsion in well water...they luv that! I plan on now giving the plants starting to flower a water soluble nute with the middle number being the highest.... like 15-30-15. Does everybody hate Miracle Grow bloom booster or is that considered non-organic?

    still no idea as to what it is....have no flowering nutes to give it just going all natural with the mg organic potting soil....its going on its 4th or 5th node,i pulled it down and anchored it to the side of the pot with a twist tie so the branches grow a bit,there only like a half inch long...well i will update when i find out what it is...the seed came from some danky dank so should be a lady or hermie i will keep even if hermi cause i need some dam smoke....

    also i popped some auto flowering seeds from my last winter auto grow....

    the first ones i grew out wer all male. 20 seeds i gave to my uncle wer all male..

    i put out 6 all together in a 3 gallon pot hopefully i get one lady...

    i have another 50 something seeds left..

    yes i crossed a male auto with a fem auto....to get seeds

    That's wild that you would get almost all male seeds...is that because you crossed a male with a hermie? I f I were you I think I would spring for some decent seeds next try even tho they cost a bit $$, it will be worth it.

    A friend of mine sent me some seeds just from her own past grows and all ten of them turned out to be female...guess I just got lucky. My plants from seeds are way happier and bigger than the clones.
