Any upstate New Yorkers getting their seeds started for their outdoor grows? I'm usually an indoor guy myself but this year I am unable to produce any indoor yield for reasons beyond my control. So I've decided to try my hand at some outdoor grows. Anybody up for having a friendly competition to see who can yield the biggest and best outdoor plants in NY? Let's show everybody what this state can produce!

The general rule of thumb around these parts is, if you start seeds while you're thinkin of your loved ones on Feb 14, then you will have time to sex your plants before putting them outdoors so that you will have 100 percent females to harvest. I've had my seeds started for about 1.5 weeks. Any other New Yorkers going to join me?

Upstate NY is a great place for outdoor. You should get clones if you can due to the 100% female. If not Start them from seed now and veg. them for a while. The longer the better. You can never put them out too big, especially in upstate NY due to the crazy amount of woods. Put them after what you think is the last frost. They will live even if they are small as long as the frosts are over.

So you're planning to put seeds directly in the ground then? Good luck to ya man and keep us posted once you get those seeds out there!

Ekoostik are you from ny? That's pretty early to put your plants out where I am. Usually the chance of frost can happen right up to the end of april. We usually don't dare put anything out before May 1st. Guess it's just a personal preference. I decided that the plants I was going to use for my outdoor this year will be a quick 12/12 indoor grow and I won't start the seeds I'm putting outside until after I get back from florida.

Sweetnug, upstate NY is great for growing. I seem to know a ton more outdoor growers in the area than indoor. I plan to start seeds in early- to mid-march and veg them until the end of april when I will sex them so that only females will be taken out on May 1st, when I will plant them.

Wow there are more people from upstate ny than I thought! Where's everybody from? Western, central, southeastern, northern? No need for exact locations just looking to see the demographics.

Thanks for the frost dates Hick. I was pretty sure there was still a chance of frost up to may.

Can't wait to get back from Florida in a couple weeks to get those plants started so they can be sexed before they head out to the great outdoors.

HEY!! Wow I'm from upstate NY and I'm having my usual outdoor crop starting with all clones. I dont like keeping them indoor veging for too long because sometimes when you put them outside they tend to go into flower for a while and then revert back to veg. I dunno it's weird but I had it happen to me a few times. But I'll def be on this thread!!!

C'bob.. once your cuts have established roots, try cutting the light hours back to 16/8 for a month or so, prior to putting them OD.
Most everyone roots unde 24/0. Putting them out under a shortened light period, tends to promote early flowering. 16/8 will help..'harden' them off, to a dark period, and will help deter spring flowering.
Clones or plants reared under 24/0, "I" like to put out, the last week of May/1st of June. That allows only 3 weeks before summer solstice, then light hours naturally begin decreasing. Allowing them to flower right on through, without trying to rveg.. ;)

Absolutely.. just watch them for wilting. If they begin to look sickly, get them out of the direct sunshine. They won't be accustomed to the intensity for awhile.

Does the same thing apply for starting by seed inside before putting them out? 16/8 instead of 18/6?

It's springtime! All the flower beds have started popping up little green shoots, the snow is finally gone ... and I got my seeds started :D. Watched the weather tonight and either we're either hitting a mini-heat wave, or winter is finally done! I can't wait to get some plants and seeds into the ground. Tons of woods and brushlines around here so I'm planning on putting out 10-15 plants and 50-100 seeds. Can't wait to see all the greenery that gets planted out there!

You may be alright, but if you can bring them inside easily and have the room, I would. 18/6 is fine and like Hick wrote in a thread, by the 2nd week in June the hours of light outside are above the 14 hours which will prevent them from trying to flower early and then veg later.
