this was mine after 4 weeks of veg from seed and 4 weeks after flowering. I reduced from 4 plants to 3 after the first pic was taken. Its a 4 x 4 x 6.5 tent. *Note: The plants are sativa's (naturally tall, but LST'd) and they are in 5 gallon bubble buckets. I would expect soil plants to be about half the size Established trees and shrubs (which are at least two years old) only need to be watered once every two weeks during the growing season when rain is scarce. 7. DO use a wand to water container plants Week 2 after topping; Week 3 after topping; Again, be careful with the big, heavy plants, because there's a chance that the plant will split in half under its own weight. It's best to strengthen the plant with some tape, just under the topping, to prevent splitting. This is more of a concern for outdoor plants
Week 3: In just the space of a few weeks your plant will have increased in size by about a half but this will now begin to slow down. On the female plants where you noticed hairs last weeks, buds will start to form. We're now entering a pretty important stage and one where you need to be vigilant How to Harden Off Plants. Seedlings need to be gradually introduced to life outside in the garden beds. Ideally, this process takes one to two weeks, and it involves taking your plants outside for a few hours each day. Over time, you gradually lengthen the time that you leave them out First container (1-gallon) to second container (2-gallon): 4-8 weeks after seed germination. Second container (2-gallon) to third container (5-gallon): transplant 8-12 weeks later, or 2 weeks. 1. The Vegetative Stage of Your Cannabis Plant Week 1 - Week 4: Vegetative State . Depending on the genetics you're growing, there will be a growth period of around 4-5 weeks, during this time your cannabis plants will focus on developing green matter such as roots, branches, foliage, and establishing itself structure-wise prior to flowering.. All of these parts of a plant are essential to. . Bring 'Em Outside. After about a month, the seedlings will turn into small plants with a few sets of leaves. Transplant them again, this time into 5- or 10-gallon buckets. The more room the roots have to dig in, the larger the plants will be able to grow, so the bigger the buckets, the better
After a few days, transition to the flowering stage, and during the first couple of weeks, your plants should continue to grow. You mustn't prune more than 2-3 weeks into flowering. Otherwise, you could inadvertently trigger further vegetative growth, which will negatively impact your yield . After two weeks of flowering, the two female plants in this grow are looking great - lots of white pistils, and calyxes beginning to thicken at the bases. This is really a low-maintenance part of the grow. The light schedule is 12 on/12 off, and the plants are getting alternating waterings of plain water. 1. The Pre-Flowering Stage Week-by-Week. After your cannabis plant has received its first days of a 12/12 light cycle either indoor or outdoor, it will enter the pre-flowering stage. Have in mind automatic cannabis doesn't depend on a light cycle to start flowering and will flower in an 18/6 light cycle This is looking so damn tasty. I'm expecting to harvest about 1.5 to 2 ounces per plant, so this amounts to over a pound of marijuana from 9 plants with 1 x 600 watt HPS. It's not my all time best harvest, but I'm always satisfied with this amount
1st. Time hydroponics grow for me, 30+ years gorilla growing outside. OMG, what a difference between the 2 , I may never grow outdoors again , (lie: Can't hardly beat 15 ft. Plants with 2-2 1/2 ft vegetable can size colons) but still its like night & day , I started from clones I took from outside grow ,roots in aprox 10 days , put into veg During the transplants' last week indoors, withhold fertilizer and water less often to condition them to the harsher outdoor life. Harden-off plants. Any seedlings or start plants that are coming from the indoors to the outdoors must go through a gradual transition or they'll go through shock. Start by watering the plants thoroughly First of all, be sure you've given plants enough time to germinate. At sowing time, mark the pots with the type of plant, date of sowing, and days to germination (found on the seed packet). Some seeds take two weeks or more to sprout. Poor germination can be caused by overly wet or cold soil, which causes seeds to rot
If you must pump them with so much light at least go with 20 / 4 instead. It will promote better root growth. Thats probably the biggest reason why your two week plants are the size of my less then 1 weekers on an average grow. Anyways over all good job! Keep up the good work Jul 5, 2009. #4. it all depends on the soil and lighting conditions. Many soils can stunt plant growth, you want a light, airy soil that retains alot of moisture. if those plants in your first post are 1 week from sprouting soil, they look a little stunted. They also look a little stretched from not enough light Young starter plants can be put directly in the ground. All three options will often yield a great result. When to actually start or plant an herb greatly depends on zone and the type of herb you want to grow. Some herbs like chives can be started indoors 8 - 10 weeks, or outside 3 - 4 weeks, before the last frost. When to plant fruits Likes Received: 162. #4 DaGanjaMonster, Sep 6, 2008. It could be a lack of light and light intensity since the outdoor growing season is well past in the Nothern Hemisphere. I am more of an indoor guy and mine are usually around 12 after a month. I only grow indicas; I imagine Sativas would be taller than that First leaves - day 12. After about two to three weeks of growth, your cannabis plant should have experienced about 5 or 6 different rounds of growth. You should be producing a regular and steady amount of leaves with every new series. You'll also notice that the branches are beginning to develop and expand outward
With a short strain you should wait until the plant is taller before the switch (3/4 the final desired height), to ensure the plant is tall enough after it's done stretching. In the picture below, the grower could probably have switched to 12/12 earlier without hurting yields because the buds at the bottom are not adding much weight Dec 20, 2015. #1. heres pictures of my plants at 2 weeks do they look healthy? to small ? also i know how i water them half a cup of water twice a week each can someone please tell me how much terra vega i should be putting in each half cup? by ml though as i have a 5ml syrenge sorry for spelling i have really bad dyslexia! hope everyones well

Next, simply flood the soil with as much water as it can hold and wait for it to empty. Repeat this process several times over the next two weeks Plants will vary in size and appearance depending on a variety of factors: Genetics, soil, lighting, nutrients, temperature, handling, and the elusive green thumb factor. As you can imagine, a plant growing outdoors under full sun in June (northern hemisphere) will be a lot bigger at 2 weeks old than a plant growing in a converted. When to plant outdoors: 1 week after last frost Harvesting characteristics: Zucchini, yellow and other elongate types when 5 to 8 inches long and skin is tender, skin must be very tender on patty pan and round types and be 2 to 4 inches in diameter Soil growers should flush the longest, at 1-2 weeks. Coco coir growers should flush for a shorter time, around one week or less (watch to make sure your plant doesn't turn too yellow too fast, because coco does not hold on to as much extra nutrients). Deep water culture (DWC) and other hydroponics growers should flush the shortest time.
Larger plants and warmer environments tend to use more water than smaller plants and cooler weather. The amount of water will change throughout a plant's cycle. During the vegetative stage, your plants should be watered thoroughly, while waiting to water again until the top 1 inch, or 2.54 centimeters, of soil has dried out Best Containers to Use for Potted Plants. Outdoor containers, in general, should be at least 12 inches wide and 10 inches deep. The bigger the pot, the more room there is for roots and the better your plants will perform. Large potted plants need larger containers, and small ones should go into smaller containers Flowering time is around 9 to 11 weeks and it has extremely big, thick buds and large yields. Experienced growers say that this plant should be kept at around 25-30℃ and that it can handle high humidity and rain without a problem, so a greenhouse is not necessary for this strain. Indoor vs outdoor weed growing: Essential difference
Post-Harvest Re-Vegging. Probably the easiest method, this will allow you to harvest a plant for buds and then re-veg it for a second growing season. When harvesting, leave a few healthy flowers and branches in tact at the base of the plant. Readjust the plant's photoperiod back to a 18/6 cycle (hours of light/hours of dark) from the 12/12. Portland could set a record for September rainfall this month, leaving many of the area's cannabis and hemp cultivators scrambling to save their crops this harvest season.. The city had received 3.12 inches of rain this month as of Sept. 19, according to a Willamette Week report, leaving the area 2.5 inches shy of breaking its September record, which was recorded in 2013 Plants that bloom on previous season's wood such as ornamental fruit trees, rhododendrons and lilacs should be pruned immediately after blooming to maximize the next year's flowering. The chart below provides a basic time frame of when you should prune. For additional information, please speak with one of our sales associates After the freeze, you should be patient. Do not go straight for the pruners and cut everything back. It takes several days or weeks for plants to show us just how damaged they are. If plants are mushy and slimy, remove this material to prevent fungal infection or disease in the days to come. You may cut out the dead material to clean things up Depending on the plant and its water needs, you may want to use two per plant. Invest in a slow drip system. If you have lots of outdoor containers, you may want to consider a drip watering system.
2. Go longer in between watering. 3. Stop watering so often (this is usually the cause ). 4. Place a towel or newspapers or flyers under the pots drain holes to soak up excess water after all the runoff finishes. 5. May need to drill extra drainage holes in pots with soil if not getting proper runoff. 6 Plant: From first week to mid-June for pinched mums. If Pinching -First pinch: Approximately two weeks after planting (roots must be at bottom and sides of pots, and 1.5 to 2.0 inches of new growth must occur). Second pinch: When breaks following first pinch are 2.5 to 3.0 inches long. Flower: September 10 to October 10, depending on cultivar If you prune cannabis plant after it has started flowering, you will end up cutting off parts of the plant where buds will grow, and that is a big waste. You need to prune your weed plant, by as much as 30% to 50% before you start the flowering stage Some quick-maturing crops, like lettuce, can continue to be planted every few weeks in succession for an extended harvest. And many cold-tolerant crops can be planted from mid-summer through early fall, depending on the crop and your climate, for a fall harvest. Step 4: Figure out Outdoor Direct Seeding Dates Plants been flowering for 6 weeks , give em nothing but rain water, doing great , lots of buds, topped it early so it wouldn't grow to large , space an issue, there's about 16 branches with nice size cola's how long should I flower for, I'm thinking 8-9 weeks, just bag seeds, had two females, and cut down the boys, do I need to flush.
Harden the seedlings off outdoors, and plant them outside when they're hardy! I like to take a week to harden my seedlings to the outdoor conditions by following this simple schedule: On Day 1: Keep your seedlings outdoors for an hour and bring them back in. On Day 2: Keep your seedlings outdoors for two hours and bring them back in Plant them indoors 10 to 12 weeks before the last frost. When the plants are two inches tall, transplant them to individual peat pots or to another, deeper, flat with new potting soil. If you use flats, put the plants at least two inches apart
Great info! I have two quick questions. I started my seedlings in a 50 and 70 cell tray, so the modules aren't very big. My tomatoes have only been growing for 3 weeks now, is that too early to pot up? They're only about 2 inches tall but all look healthy so far. My other question is regarding the richer soil There are two ways to approach growing this large brassica in a pot. You can either plant one per 12-inch by 12-inch pot, giving the leaves and heads the recommended space - about a foot or more between plants in an outdoor garden 12. Fertilize only if you prefer to do so. I choose to apply 2 feedings of 1 level teaspoon of 15-30-15 to a gallon of water and using that gallon on about 150 plants. 13. Transplant outdoors when the seedlings are about 8 to 10 inches tall. 14. Check on the plants often in the first 2 weeks after transplanting About 2 ½ weeks before the last frost, begin putting your broccoli seedlings outdoors during the day and bringing them in at night. This is called hardening off. In this way they will get accustomed to being outdoors without the shock being put in the ground immediately. Homemade broccoli starts should be hardened off for at least 4 days About ten days to two weeks after this first transplant, When you have big plants, Drying takes from ten days to two weeks, depending on the outside humidity and temperature. Inside the drying room the ideal is 60º Fahrenheit and 60% humidity, with good airflow
Then, when ultimately I plant outside, which may be several weeks later, again, how deep should I plant? Wilfred Knight on Monday 21 July 2014 I find that having the onions planted one-half inch deep, so that the base of the white shank is covered with soil, helps the plants stay upright better than shallow planting After about 2 weeks, it looked as though the top might not make it; some of the lower leaves turned brown but I didn't dare pull it out of the pot. I waited another couple weeks and to my dismay, my new pupply knocked over the plant. I didn't notice any new roots, but the top area where new leaves grow out of was still green and appeared vital ANSWER: Green beans, and other types of beans are not frost-hardy. They should be planted about 2 weeks after the last expected frost date. They also don't grow much until the soil temperature has warmed to about 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit, so there is no point in planting them too early I have my plant in a big pot also, so I got a cardboard box 16'x16″ square and about 24″ deep and turned it upside down as a dome over the plant. Ask at your grocery store, the box is what they pack cartons of eggs in. Perfect size to go over the plant! The cardboard breathes, and the plant wont overheat Temperature: 55-80 F (13-27 C) Watering: Water thoroughly and allow the excess water to drain, then allow soil to dry out before watering again. Growing Aloe Vera Plants Inside Vs. Outside. Another major factor in the growth rate of Aloe Vera is whether the plant is indoors or outdoors
