hey guys, i am forced to wait to do my next indoor grow, and would like to get some meds going outside. I ordered some seeds a while back and got a free critical+automatic with the batch, and decided to give it a go outside. My main concern is the hours of daylight. Currently in my area we are receiving about 13-ish hours of light per day, and will climax to only about 14.75 in a couple months. I have seen alot of info about light cycles for indoor autos, but cannot find any info on growing these strains outdoors successfully, so again i turn to you all here at MP.
just to help you get a feel for what im working with... i will be growing in a 3 gallon grow bag which will be filled with a 75-25 coco-perlite mix and i will be feeding general hydroponics flora series nutrients(i could also use some advice on feeding the outdoor auto) i look forward to your information! thanks in advance

i know the more light the better =p im just wondering if it will be successful if i do them outdoors only receiving 13 hours a day. and the temps right now are 70's 80's during the day and 50's-60's at night, had a few nights in the 40's not long ago

Go for it. It was free. Don't make the mistake of starting her in a cup. Plant her straight away in that 3 gallon grow bag and put her in direct sunlight for the full 13+ hrs. She needs all the breaks she can get. I don't grow in coco. I usually feed lightly with FN Grow at two and three weeks and then FN Bloom till the last two weeks. I assume this is a single Fem seed? She should show sex around week three.

thanks for the encouragement =] i plan to do just that, which is plant her directly in the bag, i checked on the seed last night and it has cracked and is strating to put out a little root, so i need to get on the ball. i have to go scout my location today, got the bag filled and ready for her though. and yes it is a single fem seed.

okay so im back now. I went to the store bought a pickaxe (brought my bag and seedling with me in my pocket =]) went to the area, decided on a location that would get decent sunlight, but was next to other 2ft tall weeds (for blending in) and went away at a 30 minute pick axing riot. my back is sore as ****, and i cut my hands up a bit digging out the rock, but i got the back burried, and blended it with rocks/leaves and put the seed about 1/16 of an inch or more below the coco and patted it slightly. the coco is presoaked in a water with bout 1 1/2 drop of superthrive to give the seedling a bit of water for its first couple days, and i will check on it daily/bi daily and update you all on progress.

my next venture is to put up a few deer deterents around to keep them from munching it, im hoping the dogs chained up within 10 yards of the plant will help to persuade them to back the **** off =]
