I looked at our extended forecast today and everything looked right to begin outdoors. No big rains or temps below 40f.
This summer I’m growing 2 new to me strains. LSD (from ILGM) and Zkittlez. Hopefully they do well against WPM and Bud rot in the fall. Fingers crossed.
I grow outdoors in 30 gallon fabric containers. They’re raised off the deck with 32” cut sections of pvc pipe. The deck is 30’+ off the ground. Away from prying eyes.
That’s a teeeeeeny 3 gal pot sitting in front.
It takes a lot of soil to fill those pots. 6 bags of 1.5 cf Fox farms ocean forest. I haven’t added anything to the soil, it’s just as it comes.
To the left is the LSD , and to the right is the Zkittlez They’re both about a month old.
I like to pour the soil in about 1/2 way full, then place a container of the same size I have the plants in, then pour more soil in while loosely compacting it around. Then I pull out the empty container, add mykos, and drop the new plants in the hole I made.
Before adding the mykos I wet the soil in the hole.
I liberally pour mykos in the bottom and sides of the hole. I also mist the roots of the plant after pulling it from the plastic pot, and then pour mykos directly on the roots before dropping it in the hole. Sorry no pic of that, I’d need 3 hands.
Transplant complete. Girls are in their final homes.
I do use tomato cages for the first month or so. It gets pretty windy up there, and the cages help them keep from bending too much.
Also joining them for the next 6-8 weeks is a Strawberry Cheesecake auto.
Thanks for watching. It’ll be October before I know it.
