I’ve always grown my stuff outside.
But this year I’ve been hit hard by bud rot and mould.
The shortfall in cured bud might mean another dry and smokeless Spring.
I don’t buy or sell so there’s limited income to spare to try and make up the shortfall.
My outdoor grow plan for 2019 includes a provision for early seed propagation using a fairly lightweight LED grow light.
My indoor grow plan is to not wait until February 19 to buy it. but buy it now and grow 1 heavy yielding auto over the preceding months.
The thinking is to take advantage of the auto’s flowing cycle by building a south facing open to sunlight grow tent.
These things I can do (Sapper and engineer) and I’m fully aware of the requirements.
By using the auto’s lack of 12/12 total darkness to flower. I can (by a timer) ensure the plant get the maximum of the Sun’s natural radiation and boost it by my low powered LED.
The Training Plan
I plan to wait until the fourth node and top back to the third. Hopefully within the auto four-week veg stage.
Then, I would pin (using inline training) each stage of the grow to within the light area maximum effectiveness and then let them go vertical.

In this way, I would hope to limit the footprint of the tent and improve yield.
I’ve mapped out many grow plans, but this one has an outside chance of succeeding.
I would like to invite feedback on the general proposal bearing in mind my circumstances.
