and im starting this thread early to see what people think.
i plan to grow a very small fem plant from an autoflower strain called "russian rocket fuel "
i ordered the seeds a little while back and ive been planning this for a few weeks now.
i have just moved to melbourne.
living with my sister and one other and she has told me NO PLANTS!
well i have scoped a spot but there are problems..
heat. the plant will be growing on a tin roof through the hottest part of melbourne summer.
-there will be wind, which normally would bot be an issue. but this time because of the need for stealth this plant must be grown in a wooden box and be made to look like just some wood scraps.
now this is very different from my last grow. the total yield if im successful will only be around 1oz.
the last grow was also one plant, but its total yield was over 34oz.
the plant will definitely be female and will stay very short.
the roof has a 50 cm brick facade that will completely hide the box! without this i could not attempt this grow
cons: heat and because of the need for some kind of box - wind.
now if the wind blows the box right off the roof it will be game over. so my idea is to simply throw around 6-8 bricks into the box with the plant. also the facade of bricks will shelter the box from any northern winds. but not from east or west.
so i have till around xmas to come up with my box design that could make or break my attempt. because the strain is an autoflower it has a limited lifespan and wont take longer than 10 weeks from seed.
if anyone has any worthwhile advice, as i have never attempted this kind of grow before, please do not hesitate.
note i will upload pictures of the facade and the immediate vacinity asap(in the morning)

and cannabis is the fastest growing, best performing plant on earth. im not really much of a smoker, and over the last 4 years i
have been recovering from an illness, and unable to grow anything.
now i have my independence back and i'm going to put the effort in just for 1 oz. the fun for me is in the growing.
if heat or wind or something else ruins my attempt, im not about to go out and slit my wrists. but yes i will go to some lengths to
produce some quality weed.

conditions when it is around 3 weeks old. so this means it will ready ready to harvest in about 10 weeks from seed. great for
guerilla style grows.and really the only option that i have.

Not going to work imo. You will cook the roots for sure.
