Basic Outdoor Grow Information

Security

In order to grow in an outside plot, it is crucial to have a secure area in a forest or woods, which will allow for substantial sunlight. Getting a minimum of 2-4 hours of sunlight will create more buds.  In terms of security, it doesn’t have to be overly extreme, as the plants tend to blend in with others, however keep in mind the possibility of children finding it by mistake if it is too close to a trail.

Avoid breaking surrounding vegetation as it may allow pathways for animals to reach the crops. If there is an issue, you may consider installing cameras to know exactly what you are trying to deter.

If cameras are an option for you, consider using one with a rewind delay to avoid those in the area to hear it. Fundamentally you should position them at the entrances of the plot, and locate the flash in a different area to avoid it being traced to the camera. Placing it high up in a tree is suggested.

Watering

Avoid using large gallon buckets for pots, as it requires you to water the plants every week. This will destroy the no- path threading. It would be more beneficial to get large containers which have a grip and you are still able to transport when full of water. If it is difficult, mounting them on a wooden pole to carry it more weightlessly. In order to add to the security, paint the containers in camouflage to avoid other spotting it. In addition hide the water containers near the water source for efficiency of transport.

There is another way to water your plants without transporting containers. By purchasing ½ inch spools of tube and drip lines you can link it to a water source. In addition you will need a 6 v water pump and some rechargeable batteries. In order to stop blockages, add a weight to hold the pipe under the water.  It is important to avoid under watering your plants especially if its due to avoiding another water run.  The more vermiculite that is added, requires more water per gallon, about 3-3.5 gallons is ideal.

In ground or pots:

An important consideration to make is whether you will plant into the ground directly, or into pots.

The disadvantage of using pots is the limitation of root space. This may limit how much the plants will grow in the confined space. On the other hand, it may stimulate growth as the pots dry out faster and more oxygen will reach the roots.

It would be a good idea to start off by growing the plants in a pot, and to then transfer these into the ground after a few weeks. Planting them in the ground will lengthen the time between watering. If the area is too dry, and you are unable to move plots, use Rubbermaid’s above your soil. Take the Rubbermaid’s and submerge them in good soil and mix in them. Add about 2 inches of mulch to hold the moisture on the top later of the soil. Cover that with other leaves and moss to make the area blend in with the rest.

Applying this setup will provide you with more control of the plant and especially the conditions of the roots. Specifically allows the roots to be grown in super soil. Worse comes to worse you can always transport the plants by digging them up despite how big they may be. If this is done correctly then the plants may only need to be tended to once a month.

Composting outdoors:

Try building outdoor compost for plots, and cover them with the vegetation and moss.  This will provide some rich soil during fall/ spring.  When it comes to composing, you should have about 50/50 when it comes to mixes of different plants, to balance nutrients.  Diameters 3x3x3 is suggested as it will speed up the process by keeping up the heat.  In order to regulate the ratio’s you should alternate the green and brown layers. To maintain these, turn the pile as often as possible, and keep it moist through watering it monthly.  You will be able to sift the material using 2×6 nailed in a  ½ inch spacing steel screen, which is fastened to the bottom.

Grow methods

Growing outdoors will increase yields. If you even out the growth across the plant this will even out the light distribution. Having mid sized plants instead of one main or smaller lowers, this will decrease mold growth on the plants. An important consideration is the level of growth hormone, specifically auxin. By making the auxins higher in the plant, it will grow more rapidly.

Side-way growth:

When the plant grows to about 4 inches, transplanting it north at a 45-degree angle will decrease the risk of breaking the stem. Tie half a dozen of the largest branches to grow out and fill in the sides.

SOG:

Place your indicia plants about 3-4 feet apart and grow your bud. You may either use it to do a short veg to increase safety. You have the choice to only grow 3 inch plants about 2 feet apart or grow 6 inch plants. The same can be applied with sativa strains but visually it will differ.

Training:

It is possible to train your plants when they reach about 3 inches. you can step it down to a 90* angle then tie each branch to grow outwards to avoid over crowding all upwards.

ScrOG:

ScrOG is equally as intense as indoor growth, but it has advantages in yield/ area.  Use large screens 4X6 inches with thick wires, versus the chicken wire, which has small holes. This is because you have easier access to train the plant.  In addition when it gets taller, it is harder to get back under the screen and there is always the risk of snapping the shoot. Rubbermaid’s would help as you can make a modular setup and allow for a 90-degree angle and allowing more effective use of sun.  You will benefit if you use the screen up at an angle, as the buds will be longer. This is an easy method to train your plants, as you don’t play with individual strings.
