    What the coldest temperature an outdoor plant can be exposed to and still thrive? The reason i'm asking is because in a week i'm starting plants indoors and i can only keep them in there for about month before i know they'll get too big.

    Also depends on the strain. If they are sativa dominent they will require slightly higher temps to do well, while indica/afghani can cope with lower temps. :thumbsup:

    Your pretty much safe as long as the roots dont freeze so know your breed...
    I had plants outdoors till it snowed on them..

    Dont Worry

    I have some little gals going right now, they are around the 2000ft elevation mark and at night it gets down to like 40 degrees at the lowest. I went and checked on them the other day and they are thriving to say the least. As long as the roots arent freezing you are all good. Put some leaves and mulch over as insulation. Keep us posted

    hey im dealing with the same temps just at a lower altitude....like 300ft. but iv had the plants inside under HPS and in COCO. Situation got kinda screwed up so im forced to throw em to the sun. we are having almost exactly 12/12 naturally...freak winter. do ya think i might have a problem due to the transfer

    Well obviously you want to try and keep a temperature of between 70 and 75f and the closer to it the better but as long as you never go below 55f I think your plants could still thrive.
