    hey guys
    this is my first fully out door grow, ie not in a glass house,
    i planted 10 plants of 5 different strains,
    the plants where about 6weeks old before i planted them outside,
    i found a great spot for them,
    they get full sun most of the day and they seem to just love it!
    there growing at a very fast rate,
    im feeding them bio bizz organic nutes.
    this is going to be my first organic grow too!
    i have to water them about twice a week,
    the strains i have out there are,
    kc 36
    nirvana, bubblishious
    nirvana, ak-48
    " " big bud
    " " big bud x northenlights,

    these strains have a short flowering time of about 8-10weeks
    which i will need as the weather gets bad in around oct.
    here is a few shots of them

    the first 2 pics are of there first week outside,
    the next 3 are of them in the last week or so,
    and in the rest you can see the damage done by green fly and other bugs, it looks like they blew holes in my leaves with a shotgun! dam!

    Hello Swift :)

    I get the same damage sometimes with insects, not a great deal you can do about it growing outside.

    How old are they now?

    I think your 2nd picture is great, it looks like you have planted them in the side of a hill :p

    :peace:

    hey hippy,
    yea i have learned to except there will be some damage from pests when growing outside, but if left unchecked thry would munch there way through the lot!
    there about 9weeks old now,
    there all fems, as i sexed some cuttings from them before i put them outside,
    yea there on the side of a river bank and there is a 12foot drop off the side!but the plants are well away from the edge,
    it was compleatly over grown with brambles,
    but its nice and clear now and the soil is quite good with great drainage,
    i planted them in 4gal growbags and slached the bottoms of the bags as i planted them so the roots can grow into the soil if they want!
    im hoping the untoped plants get over 6 foot anyway, maybe higher!
    just hope they finish before the bad weather starts!

    hey guys

    thanks uk girl,
    yea they are looking quite well despite the bug attacks!

    hey 4utosmoke
    thanks for poping in and checking out my grow,
    and thanks for the mojo man!

    whats up ham-man,
    yea somtimes i wonder myself!
    it helps not working full time i guess!
    thanks man i saw the pics of your out door baggies,
    i hope the remaining two work out for you man,

    whats up benney
    thanks for dropping in man,
    i hope mine turn out as well as yours are turning out man!
    just have to keep fighting off the dam bugs!

    so there comming on well,
    just like i said i have to battle the dam bugs,
    the kc 36's i have out there are the most resistant by far, most of them have no damage at all, while the ak 48 is a magnet for them,
    the kc 36's are also the quickest growers with the bubblish in second,
    the bubblishious grow very bushy nice side growth,
    while the kc likes to grow tall and like a christmas tree,
    im going to top all but 1 and see how high it gets out there!
    its going to be intresting to see,
    ill be going out soon to inspect and manybe water them so ill take some new pics soon.

    Hi There!

    If I may offer a suggestion...


    I use 4 cloves of garlic slice them real thin put it in a small pot of water (enough for a spray bottle) boil it good, put it in the spray bottle and spray top and bottom of leaves 1x per week, and I never have any problem with bugs!!! The harvested weed does not taste like garlic either!! I swear by it!!!!:D
