Bueatiful place it is @mountainman1 wouod pose some challenges growing? Do you do most indoor? I am outdoor up here.

Mostly outdoors up here although I have set up a 4ft 4 bulb t5ho fitting in the garage for autos and veg growth . I have to say i have had the best finish to a season weather wise than i can remember. Usually this time of year we have temps falling rapidly and heavy frosts.

Weather up here has been pretty good and is cooling off now.

@Mudcrab01 are you doing an outdoors winter crop ? Ive got a few on the go , but moving very slow , as the temps drop, had one plant last winter that did nothing , but when summer hit , it exploded, 1.3 pounds dry, also kept a couple of the plants from summer after a big cut back , so hoping they kick back to veg , the few buds i left on one of the plants has gone so purple

@Coltfire have a grow now in my Greenhouse and flipped to 12/12 yesterday. They are going ok but I am using supplimental lighting.

The temp variation up North here in dry season is quite large even with day temps fluctuating between 23–30c at the moment. Wow you plants, they did explode to provide you that amount. Great picture by the way.

@Mudcrab01 , i have the few i cut back and a couple of clones,on the go atm but they are just starting to flip back to veg, and with the cooler weather ,it takes forever to see anything growing,but as they say if uts not up top its under ground, ive been thinking mayb i should invest in a tent and lights,just for winter , the on lo y thi g that stops me is the cost of electricity, for others not here in Australia , we have ghe most expensive electricity in the world. Yet we ship out so much.

@Coltfire I use the Viparspectra PAR 450’s for supplimental lighting they have been quite cost effective. Use them as Insaid to extend the veg times with the shorter days we have. Also run them on the rainy cloudy days and they have gone ok for the plants when used like that.

450 vipar is the bomb. Got one in my fridge grow. Fits and works perfect in there. My plan is to grow out my strawb kush seedling until its time to plant outdoors. Then when its natures time to take over I’ll plant her outside where last years monster strawb kush was with the theory that if I got nearly a pound from her starting from a seed and planting late then surely if I’m planting an established rooted girl and she takes well, I should knock last years out of the park. I won’t be gailing or wash tubbing this year so I’m hoping this experiment works. View ‘starting late, outdoor south Australia’ to see last Summers effort :wink:

Hey @Powaforce in the North East of Australia here. I used the 450’s for supplimental light in an outdoor greenhouse this grow. I have however have been thinking of using it on a more basis during a grow since they are there and set up. Tag me in your grow for some reason I can’t locate it??
