Mine were started mid/end of March, actually started most them inside as night time was just a little too cold for them so I thought. This was my first grow taken seriously, all prior grow were more of seed toss outside in the midwest US. This year when we voted legal pot in NV, I observed the law as stated and decided to set up a small greenhouse, whcih because of where I live outside Las Vegas I am a distance outside of the restrictions placed by the law on growing within dispensary locations. So I am allowed to grow 6 plants per adult in my household. but I was concerned as I did want any kids tempted etc… I decided inside a small greenhouse was best to keep things discreet and keep them away from my dogs etc…
What I have learned over the period of this grow, I can start them a little later, actually been starting my autos right in their bucket FFOF and they start out fine that way, so I cut out the transplant step…I knew the summer would be brutal on them, so 1/2 of my greenhouse panels are fabricated steel frame with screen to allow more airflow. My watering system is a simple one, drip feeders, actually more so flow now days rather than drip, with 2 two port timers. this way I can fully control times but more importantly, I run a lawn/garden sprinkler first to run out the hot water in the pipes, then feed my gals or mister. My misting is also very simple, a basic 18 in fan running low with a 4 port mister tie strapped to the front, however I run it at/below bucket line, so it cools the air and ground or bottom and not misting the leaves. That has knocked 10-20 degrees off when heat is extreme. However, as predicted with 2+ weeks outside temps running at 110-120f time to pull out my shade screen I guess.
I wish I had them outside fully like yours, but again do not want the attention, not so much by adults, but do not want a kid hassle. I have a block wall all around my property,so kids or adults alike would have to climb over. Then they will greeted by my dogs, and for their sake hope I don’t wake up.
