I have been reading here and there that it is recommended to not have full day exposure to the sun in an outdoor grow, but rather to have morning light to evaporate any moisture up until mid day where shade is preferred. Is this the consensus?
I have been placing my pots where I can get full sun from 9am to about 6:30. I have also been dealing with issues from the start and believe that the plants are somewhat stunted for their age (just over 7 weeks). There are several reasons why that may have happened, and, of course, I might just be overthinking it.
But if not, one factor could be that im overdoing it with exposure to full sun. I am in PNW and we are having an unusually hot couple/few weeks that started right around the time i transplanted to 5gal pots.
here are some shots of them at 7 weeks. ive included two shots of some leaf weirdness and damage - i have another thread about that when it started. I have been slowly addressing what I believe to be a pH issue, but I am wondering if there is some light damage. not all plants are affected. some worse than others. and one lil runty. and even a few starting to show some preflowers. (nevermind the hitchhiker in that photo - hes gone now )
