I have ten White Widow and five OG Kush seeds that I got from Robert. I’d like to give them the opportunity to get as large as possible (duh).
I’m lucky to live in Colorado, except for the short season: At my elevation, there are about 120 days between frosts. The last one can be as late as June 1, so that’s my transplant date; the spring equinox is March 17 at this latitude (40th parallel). I don’t have a greenhouse, and very limited space indoors (the bottom 4’ of a 3’x4’ rectangular closet). I plan on using el-cheapo 4’ fluorescent bulbs in it.
I see the limitations as the closet floor dimensions (12 sq. ft.), the ceiling height of my starter space (4’) and the amount of time before the plants become root-bound in the chosen pots. So, count backwards from either a 3.5’ maximum plant height or a near-root-bound-condition on June 1-- whichever will occur first. The latter should depend mostly on the size of the pot, I guess.
My questions: 1) What size pots should I start the seeds in (I’d rather only transplant them once), and 2) when should I start them-- so they’ll be as large as possible on June 1?
Apologies. I know this sounds like the old math-class story problem…
