Hey Ya'll,

I'm a South African who recently bought planted some Bagseeds of Cali Orange Bud.

Got my girls on a 12/12 cycle for now, 3wks old and flurishing beautifully! Luckily, the South African climate is perfect for potent growing (Indoor & Outdoor) even in winter (like now).

It is really easy to grow our Southern strains such as Durban Poison & Swazi as they don't need too much nute attention and thrive even in harsh conditions.

I need some advice from my Northern brothers & sisters on how best to care for my ladies as this is my first grow and thus far, they all show promise. I used sterilized plastic jars to sprout my seedlings without any specific soil mix. Normal (fertile) soil with egg shells and wood shavings to protect the base and preserve the soil. Each morning, I have the girls set up on the roof and bring them indoors at night.

Will my Cali Orange girls be okay like this or am I doing something wrong?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Namaste.

Thank you bro, been trying to upload pics and for some reason the file extention refuses to load. I'll keep working on it..

I look forward to getting all sorts of tips.. I chose the Cali Orange bud to grow because of the similarity in Cali & South African climate. I'm also playing around with a few Purple Haze seeds but intend on setting up a proper grow room for this at a later stage.

Thanks again

Rudeboy, set your grow room up before you plant anything. If your plants are 3 weeks old they need to be under 24 hours of light. When they are mature, then you flip to 12/12.

I don't understand.. if your growing indoors what your climate has to do with anything?

Hi Rosebud,

That's a nickname I call my daughter BTW.. I call her my Rosebud because her Vernac name means Flower:)

I am not growing the Cali Orange indoors though.. I simply move them indoors in the evenings as it's the heart of winter here in South Africa. When I selected the various bagseeds, they were of the Cali Orange & Purple Haze variety. I'm growing the Orange outdoors & want to grow everything else indoors.

Thanks for the tip though.. Truly appreciated

Welcome to MP. We don't usually encourage people to bring their outdoor plants in as it can also bring in pets. Just a heads up.

As for uploading pics. What type of file extension are you using? This forum accepts many of the more popular ones. It might be that your pics are too large. 1200x1200 is as large as you can post. Most cell phones even take pics bigger than that now a days. You will need to resize them. I use this>>>>http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/?part=dl-IrfanView&subj=dl&tag=button It's free and easy to use.
