    I just got a few clones from a dispensary and of course they were indoor grown. I am going to grow them outdoors.

    Does anyone know if there are techniques to putting them outdoors?? I dont want to get them sunburnt. Maybe they can go out directly in the sun but I dont know if that is good for them or not.

    If anyone has suggestions I would like to hear them all, thanks

    Jorge cervantes covers that in his ultimate grow dvd,(which kicks ass!) He says to take them outside for a couple hours the first day, then bring them back in. keep doing this and everyday, leaving them outside an hour or two more each day, until the leaves toughen up, (around 5 days)

    Cool, thanks everyone I just put them in a spot where they got minimal time in direct sunlight and then shade for the rest of the day. Did that for about 4 or 5 days, now they can withstand direct sun for many hours.

    I did notice though when they are in the sun too long they will turn away from the sun and kinda slump over. I just put them in the shade but still outside and they stood straight back up within minutes.

    That's 1 method, but the thing about this stuff is that there isn't only 1 way there are hundreds if not thousands, the best method I recommend is one that works 4 you. Taking it out everyday while its young to catch sun is good and by the 3rd week it should be capable of taking on the outdoor all together, you can also mature the plant indoor 1gal,2gal,3gal, then take it outdoor when its about 1' or so. Just make sure the season is correct and wont make you plant flower early. PEACE

    PS. I bet you already solved your prob and your plant must be huge by now since you 1st posted in APRIL:Rasta:

    I would not 'bring them in & out' as 'Jorge' suggests (that guy has screws loose, anyway :D) ... that only raises the probability of bringing insects into your indoor grow area ... instead, place your potted plants in a shady spot for a couple days, then 'gradually' introduce them to direct sunlight ... this should sufficiently 'harden' them off ... good growing :smokin:
