Hi all,heres a pic of my outdoor attempt for 2010,and so far its much better than my 2009 attempt!The plant is a clone from a grow i did earlier in the year and this time i put it in the ground instead of a pot,i also topped and pruned it a lot to keep it "low n wide".I havnt feed it yet but i did mix in some multi purpose compost with the soil when i planted it out in may.Im delighed with progress so far,i just hope the weather stays good enough to get a harvest.

Hi BG the strain is pakistan valley from world of seeds,100% indica i think.This is a clone from a seed plant i grew earlier in the year.
Indoors, if i growing a few plants of the same strain i usually top one of them just to see wot happens.Its never had a bad effect on the plant.I usually do it while the plant is still in veg.

I think this plant is flowering now,or at least starting to flower,there are no buds but it looks different!Ill post another pic soon.

Fantastic, healthy-looking plant Alecky. I'll be very interested to see how it flowers in the Irish climate.

What size/how old was the plant when you moved it outdoors in May?

Hi farmermick thanks for dropping in and thanks for that closet grow space thread,it was a constant source for info when i started out,would have been lost without it!

When the clone rooted i potted it up and stuck it outside straight away at about 10cm then when it outgrew the pot i planted it directly in the ground at about 25-30cm.That was around 3rd week in may,its now about 1m tall and 1m wide.
Im intrested to see how it fares off too,i had one outside last year but brought it in too flower under lights.

I havnt looked very hard,but i cant find any pics or blogs on the forums of a grow thats been flowered outdoors in ireland.

No obvious buds on these plants, but I love this video. It might be a hemp field, but hemp plants are usually grown much closer together.

Bud-rot is the biggest potential problem in Ireland. The humidity levels really start to climb during September/October, especially as the nights start to get colder...

Nice vid farmermick.I wouldnt mind a field of cannabis!

This plant could have been harvested at 45days when i grew its mother indoors although, i left it for 55,so im hoping it will be quick to finish outdoors too and hopefully avoid the bud-rot.
Does quick finisher indoors transfer to quick finisher outdoors?

To be honest, I have no idea what the answer to that question is. My gut instinct tells me that the gradual decline in photoperiod may lead to a more gradual onset of flowering compared to the overnight switch from 18/6 to 12/12 in an indoor grow. But this is just speculation.

Cold temperatures (and any other kind of stress) can definitely slow down flowering.

As I said, I'll be very interested to see how that lady copes with the less-than-ideal Irish climate.
