8 girls, just started budding in last week...can anyone comment as to the approx time it takes from initial bud to harvesting...I know the tric issue, but I'm just trying to get a feel for the actual time factor involved....from first planting seed to now would be 2 months...as a side issue, would love to hear from any other Gold Coast outdoor growers....trade ideas, experiences, etc

hello kerry

we are moving into spring summer

meaning days are getting longer

thats a great time for plants to vegetate and grow big

cannabis plants flower wen they recieve unbroken drarkness for 12 hours

i think your plants are gunna start to revege

its a long process and u wont see much activity

wat size are they?

howlong have they been out there?

are u maintaining a forced flowering photoperiod of 12/12?

best way to remember is fathers day to plant

mothers day to harvest,

Planted the seeds on First of August in a hot house, now planted out in the bush, none of them are more than 18 inches tall, but just recently started to bud.....are you saying they will stop budding yet continue to grow larger and stronger? Will the buds develop any further? should I just leave the buds as is? do I have to be concerned about insects or anything else that may infect the buds? last year they got infested with what appeared to be really tiny black ants.

Basically, you're saying plant in Sept and harvest in May...so in Qld, can you only get 1 grow per year? Currently, we're getting stacks of rain and sky is very overcast...is that why they've started to bud?

No the reason they started to bud is cause you planted them when the days were still short, so it vegged a little then started to bud,,

 

like bill said your plant will more than likley reveg meaning it will start to grow again As the days get longer.

 

You really need to plant when your days are rising above 12hrs and let them veg all through summer.

 

plant on fathers day harvest on mothers day...good general rule of thumb.

Hello Kerry, i've had hydro seeds go to bud and completely finish right next to some generation outdoor plants growing veg no buds, and this was in the summer months, i checked day length only a few weeks ago and it was still 12/12 so i held off planting till now, i live in brisbane and have put the seed down around xmas and if your a bit of a greenthumb you can get the plants plenty big enough for a may harvest, this is not the only season in south east qld, you can also winter crop (smaller plants) sprout seeds feb - harvest around june. hope this helps...

Thanks ayepeacee, I always thought we should be able to get two grows in a year....this rain we're currently having is shocking....haven't been out to see the girls for a few days...don't know what they're going to make of all of this moisture.... :scratchin:

grew from seed, and then planted out in pots in my own compost creation....and now planted in the bush, in predug holes again filled with my own compost. How can u tell when a plant ins't going to reveg? On the plants that budded, like yours, the buds are just getting bigger and denser....trying to decide when to cut off and dry....any ideas? the plants that haven't budded are now really growing massive and still not showing any sex....but I did have some obvious males a few weeks ago, which were ripped out. Is that typical of the veg stage? ie they grow massively but no hint of male or female? at least none I can see anyway.

please tell me a little about neuts, as have heard the term, but really don't know what that means....like I said, I'm just a beginner...
