You've got to take those puppies in every day man. 60 is pushing it.

Are you just about to harvest them?

Well, they need 10 hours of sunlight a day. Time it for the warmest time of the day for you. The rest of the day, they need to be inside, warm, and totally dark.

How long have they been flowering?

while i can't answer about their survival in the cold, i suggest you put them in the garage for the first few time when you bring them in at night - do this for a week then the following week put them in the house. it's so much shock to a plant to have a drastic change of temp that way. my experience comes from having done this to other plants.

..mj can "survive" a few light frosts(30-32F)...but stop growing/functioning at about 60F, as stoney said.

Hey MP family, this thread is on the track of something I would like to know so I revived it!

Besides unforseen circumstances, in colder climates there are three reasons to harvest:

1. The trichromes are colored to your liking.
2. A hard freeze.
3. If the expected high temperatures will not reach 60 degs f. for the rest of the season.

Is this a good summary? Should I consider other variables?

I am concerned that Daphne, my large Sativa, will leave me with skimpy buds because most of the time the temps here are below 60. The highs are only about 70 usually, if that.

Any help will be appreciated!

Build a mini green house and they should be fine for now. That is what I do as the temperatures get low and it starts to rain and drizzle. The plastic will keep your temps higher and protect the plants from freeze damage. I just build a little frame out of what ever lumber I have handy and staple on some plastic. If you leave some areas where you can open up the sides of the plants when it is hot they will grow nicely. I hope this helps, it works for me.

Close..gad'
"ALL" growth, photosythesis, metabolism, doesn't cease at 60 degrees. It only slows considerably. Nutrient uptake is inhibited, but doesn't stop entirely..IMHO.
Different strains "seem" to have different limitations.
"IF" it's feasable, a mini greenhouse, like kasgrow suggested should get you at least a couple of weeks further into the season to finish. It is surprising the difference a thin piece of plastic makes at frost time..

So if the plant gets hit with a freeze, does that ruin the bud or just stop the growth? In other words is it mandatory to harvest prior to a freeze?
