    Should I enclose outdoor plants now the weather is rainy and frost is possible?

    Fortunately I'm harvested and curing already. Got lucky with an early finish this season. How far are you from ready to chop? How many plants? The popup tent might do the trick 1) if the plants aren't too tall to fit under it and 2) you have some 12" stakes to anchor the tent. Otherwise, as...

    Should I enclose outdoor plants now the weather is rainy and frost is possible?

    Welcome. I grow in pots outdoors in central Virginia with big humidity and usually a rainy season going into harvest time. I keep a regular old household fan blowing on my plants 24/7. I've been known to drag them up under a 10 x 10 popup tent ahead of a deluge.

    SubGirl’s Garden

    Subgirl - I was clobbered by WPM last year. I tried everything. I finally got it under control with Potassium Bicarb, and I put a cheap oscillating fan from Lowes on the plants 24/7 for most of August through harvest in October. It seemed to keep the WPM at bay. When the September rains came, I...

    Harvest Time (part ii)?

    I did a couple of autos this year...white widow. Pretty much planning to do autos only next year. Nice to have everything buttoned up by the end of July. Like you I don't need much yield to be high and generous all year round. Pound-yielding photos are cool, but the hassle factor is very high in...

    Harvest Time (part ii)?

    I'm up in central Virginia. Just saw your thread and was wondering how it worked out. I managed to make it to early September but bud rot was running rampant around here so I put the old chainsaw on her. Little to no amber, but like you I was afraid to try to go the distance. How'd yours work out?

    Smach's 2022 Virginia outdoor grow

    After removing the fat colas, I left the remainders for another 8 days. They actually filled in nicely, developed some amber trichs, and I chopped them yesterday. 275 grams wet. I'm hoping it'll give me an A/B test to compare these more developed buds with what I cut early.

    Smach's 2022 Virginia outdoor grow

    After lopping off the bigger terminal colas yesterday, here's what's left. Lots of lower branches, sort of foxtailey. I don't really mind that, but trimming gets tiresome. Tons of larfy popcorn. I'd say I lost maybe 15% to bud rot. And of course the next 10 days are beautiful growing days. No...

    Probably not essential, but I do it to 1) check humidity in the bag and 2) to check for off smells. Once in Grove bags no need to open (there's a clear window so I can see the hygrometer without opening the bags).

    Three times this season I've spotted a leaf or two with PM. Sprayed with Agrowlyte and not a trace of PM subsequently.

    Smach's 2022 Virginia outdoor grow

    The colas are pretty dense, which I imagine is a major contributor to humidity-related problems. Hard for them to dry out once they get rained on or even just with the dew from overnight. They're pretty to look at but maybe impractical in this environment. The dominant smell at this point I...

    septoria / Defguard / bigsur51?

    Big- A buddy of mine has been hit hard with septoria. I saw a thread where you recommended Defguard. Do you know if that product can be used in flower? Thanks- Smach

    GSC's still looking pretty good overall, but with that apparent heat stress. Good sized plant with good sized colas forming. I think it's further along than last year's grow was at this point. Minimal pests, no white powdery mildew at all. I'm spraying bT and pyganic weekly just because. It's an...
