Question from a fellow grower:
I’m hoping that you can help me out with an outdoor grow issue. I grow one plant each summer which provides me with enough for the year. Right now I’m racing with the end of our New York season. I’ll be pushing it to the end of October. We’ve had a tremendous amount of rain this year, and while this plant (Strawberry Banana) has shown no ill effects so far. My worry ironically is not the water. While the nine varieties of tomatoes all succumbed to wilt, rot, and mold the marijuana has seemingly not suffered. What does concern me is the cloud cover. Is my plant receiving enough sunlight? If not is bringing it into my garage, and putting it under a t5 fluorescent a viable option? That’s the only lamp I’ve got as I do start my veggies indoors. Right now I do believe that the plant will finish well outside, but before the problem arises I’d like to be prepared.
