Week went well and plants look ok. The first couple of weeks I am always nervous. Have a bit of leaf curl, probably due to not ph'ng the water. Had this before and went away by it self, so I am hoping for the best.

Started to add a low dose of nutrients and the plans are liking them. I think the whole nutrient thing is a bit of mad science, this will take awhile to figure out and look forward to learning it.

I will pot up in another week to 3 gln containers and keep them in those hopefully untill planting outdoors.

Really impressed and appreciative from all the help and advice I have received from other growers.

Thanks for looking,

Cheers

Grow Questions
BarrieGrower week 15 started grow question 3 years ago
The question is do I defoliate the outdoor plants?

I figure outdoor should be the same as indoor and it should work. I also know the sun is extremely hot and maybe keeping the fan leaves is better. I have a plant starting budding and wonder if I should

Any help is appreciated

I can speak from living in Ontario and some defoliation is usually necessary to avoid powdery mildew. It is really warm and humid here and things like PM and Bud Rot are a real thing for everyone growing in Ontario. I've been growing outdoor for a few years now and good air circulation is the best tool in avoiding this.

BarrieGrower week 2

Planning my outdoor grow, have my location picked. Given life and responsibly's sometimes get in the way, watering is a big concern.

Has anyone used water crystals to suplement frequent watering?

If you could let me know how it worked for you that would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

@BarrieGrower, nice dude and lookn good. IMHO - anything you can do in the way of additional watering and nutes when it comes to outdoor, in ground is just a bonus. If u can’t due to time or travel however, they should be just fine when left alone to Mother Nature - that’s what she always intended anyway:wink::+1::sunglasses:

And a helpful tip for ya - starting indoors is great where we’re at because you want the girls strong before they go in the ground in late May (eliminates frost concerns for those freak temp. Swings). Only thing to be mindful of when starting indoors is the light cycle - right now we’re getting like 14 hours of sunlight in Ontario so your grow light timer should try to mimick that as best as possible. Otherwise, it is possible that the girls start flowering prematurely after you move em outside.:+1: not a major issue but if you want to grow some monster trees with extra veg. Time then this is a definite concern. I take my outdoors through the whole season and still really haven’t had an issue with the early/mid fall come the last potential harvest time before the snow flies. These already have a great start dude, very nice:+1::ok_hand:

@TheBudWhisperer, that's what I did. I started my seed indoors in March and topped them before putting them out in May. :)
