    I got my plants last week, put them outdoors the day after I got them, and my dog promptly dug one up, it may pull through, but it's looking grim, the other two just got put into 5 gal buckets of some fairly peaty soil this morning, so far no sign of shock, I plan to give them a week to get used to the soil before I start feeding them. I only have 3 plants right now, it's what I could afford, the strain is Green Crack, right now they are about a foot to a foot and a half tall, I'll post pics tomorrow.

    I can't find an option to edit posts, but here's a bad pic I took with my cameraphone the night before they went outside,

    If you are in the Northern Hemisphere with plants this small, it's too late to attempt an outdoor project to full maturation. Marijuana first grows plant mass, and then flowers/buds in response to the shortening amount of sunlight(as is occurring in the northern US currently).

    I would use the the 5 gallon buckets to grow them outdoors, then you'll need an indoor UV source to finish them off.

    I have a 1000w HPS, it's just too hot to use it right now, I've successfully gotten a good harvest starting this late, not a lot of buds, but still good.

    Have you grown the green crack before? I was growing mango in the past, and did some research on the net and found out that mango/greencrack were allegedly the same thing. I absoulutely loved it, I'm sure you will too.

    Try using one of those plants indoors anyways. Trick the plant into thinking it's actually Spring by gradually increasing UV exposure. It's worth a shot rather than getting one late bud.

    Here's some pics I took today, I think I should give up on the one the dog dug up, but the delivery service brought me a shiny new clone today that will go outside in the morning, I told him about my dog problem, and he brought me the clone free of charge, much love to Organic Roots.
