    Any upstate New Yorkers getting their seeds started for their outdoor grows? I'm usually an indoor guy myself but this year I am unable to produce any indoor yield for reasons beyond my control. So I've decided to try my hand at some outdoor grows. Anybody up for having a friendly competition to see who can yield the biggest and best outdoor plants in NY? Let's show everybody what this state can produce!

    The general rule of thumb around these parts is, if you start seeds while you're thinkin of your loved ones on Feb 14, then you will have time to sex your plants before putting them outdoors so that you will have 100 percent females to harvest. I've had my seeds started for about 1.5 weeks. Any other New Yorkers going to join me?

    Upstate NY is a great place for outdoor. You should get clones if you can due to the 100% female. If not Start them from seed now and veg. them for a while. The longer the better. You can never put them out too big, especially in upstate NY due to the crazy amount of woods. Put them after what you think is the last frost. They will live even if they are small as long as the frosts are over.

    Ekoostik are you from ny? That's pretty early to put your plants out where I am. Usually the chance of frost can happen right up to the end of april. We usually don't dare put anything out before May 1st. Guess it's just a personal preference. I decided that the plants I was going to use for my outdoor this year will be a quick 12/12 indoor grow and I won't start the seeds I'm putting outside until after I get back from florida.

    Sweetnug, upstate NY is great for growing. I seem to know a ton more outdoor growers in the area than indoor. I plan to start seeds in early- to mid-march and veg them until the end of april when I will sex them so that only females will be taken out on May 1st, when I will plant them.

    Wow there are more people from upstate ny than I thought! Where's everybody from? Western, central, southeastern, northern? No need for exact locations just looking to see the demographics.

    Thanks for the frost dates Hick. I was pretty sure there was still a chance of frost up to may.

    Can't wait to get back from Florida in a couple weeks to get those plants started so they can be sexed before they head out to the great outdoors.

    I am finishing up in a month but I will be starting seeds around the end of march and putting them out the first or second week of June. I can't believe how many people are from Upstate.
