If you have a short grow season then you can transplant sexed [indoor] clones outdoors just after the frost has gone. Fluorescent lights can give you an early start to the season.


How short is the grow season for you? You might NEED a particular strain if its less than 6 months.

That's a damn short season. Less than 6 months. Go for short flowering strains, indica dom, and yeah, get as much seedling growth done under lights indoors before the frosts finish in your area.


Yeah, this is an aussie forum, so we're unlikely to know much about the growing in your area, we're a completely different climate to you. Do you by any chance know your USDA temp zone? like zone 1234567891011 or 12? Most of oz is zone 9, with minimum temps just under 0. But a substantial proportion on the US is below zone 8, which means the temps regularly drop below -7 in winters, perhaps even lower.


MJ needs a good amount of sunlight and warmth to grow, it is completely frost intolerant. Not hardy at all at low temps, so you'll want to grow the seedlings as far ahead as possible before the growing season outdoors.


That said, you may just be far better off growing indoors full stop. No frosts indoors. :D


Hope that helps mate.
