sorry for not getting back @Sl1....it was my birthday and the family kept me busy...
(<-- a year older)
If I had grown outside, I'd have used my green house like @Countryboyjvd1971's ...the poly top hides what is inside from prying eyes, the soil would have been store bought in cloth pots though I do have garden space with bales of peat moss, years of compost, nutrients added regularly...and I did grow mmj in that garden.
My garden space is next to the house, gets morning sun at 10AM, the tent gets placed in the yard for 7-7:30 sun. My garden in the ground is partially under an oak tree and was unusable last year, we had a plague of caterpillars and that tree was ground zero...the tent gets placed so it isn't under a tree.
I love growing mmj...but I don't like problems...temps too high, too low, bugs, mold, fungus...outdoor growing gives me harder problems to resolve, at least presently...growing indoors has been my solution.
I am thinking of a two bucket DWC grow next...
Thanks @maximusindica ...the lights are...a 600 watt HID with a mars hydro 300 added...I had put the LED in to supplement a dying MH bulb and left the mars hydro after switching to hps.
The plants are in FFOF soil, got GH 3part with Mammoth P and cal mag as needed...the stalks are rigid, very thick and woody...all I added were fans.
