Welcome to my great experiment! I’ve been hemming & hawing over starting a clandestine outdoor grow, while working out in the bush. It’s taken me several months to decide to go for it, so I am.
I am starting about 2 weeks later than I had hoped, which could be a problem if the weather turns before September. Otherwise, as long as my bosses don’t catch wind of what I’m doing, all should be fine.
I’m doing this on a shoestring budget; I am using only items I already have on hand, plus a bag of soil. I plan on growing 2 Diesel Autos & 1 Auto Kush plants (all freebie seeds), using 3-5 gallon smart pots. The location is nice & sunny, yet sheltered from too much wind. I’ll feed with my leftover AN line, if/when needed.
There is a great chance that this experiment will fail, b/c of weather or my not being able to care for the plants as regularly as I would like. I’m ok with the odds, though. Gotta play to win, right?
I won’t be able to start the grow until Wednesday 6/27. I’ll start them using a heated & covered germination station, rapid rooters, and a 300w led light. After they get going, I’ll start the hardening off process. I’m hoping to have them in their wild home by mid-July. Where I work is off grid: we run on generators & solar panels, so things aren’t going to be perfect.
Everything but the soil is in this magical mystery box!
