Early start outdoor grow?


#1

Well howdy yall. This what was my first grow. Next year I’d like to make some changes instead of using straight City water, I will use 3 55 gallon barrels actually in rotation dechlorinated and nuted and all that stuff. This grow I didn’t use any pesticides I found caterpillars and couple spiders but I didn’t know what was going on until it’s a little too late I still got some good bud off of it and right now I’m drying and curing. Next year I’ll be using some BTK or neem oil or something organic probably actually use Fox Farms soil instead of the Lowe’s brand Organics. So thank you all for your help also in determining the colors and in deficiencies and such Forum really great

What I wanted to ask was starting early earlier in the year to get a larger vegetative growth. I know they have the light cycle in February or March isn’t as great as it obviously is in May but if I have a light on for 24 hours or at least during the dark hours would that be het thw job done? From a small cfl up to a small led grow light idc… in in socal so its not THAT cold, but i could always keep them a bit warmer. I dont want them to start inside for from Jan/feb till May, i want to use the sun’s energy siring that time. Is this feasible?

I start mine in february indoor, they go out in May…
I got greenhouse, the lights in it are just to keep them from premature flowering…
Just a couple T5 and a few cfl bulbs…
Happy growing :wink::wink::wink:
