An opportunity in the great outdoors

Many self-sufficient growers prefer to grow their stash of recreational or medical pot indoors.  It allows a controlled environment, a wide choice of varieties and a reasonably predictable way of producing your pot but an increasing number of indoor growers are finding that growing a few outdoor plants can be just as much fun. With the right planning it can be a great way to get a top quality autumn harvest but for those that have never grown outdoors before there are a few things to consider.

Flowering – The cycle of life

Hopefully by now you are looking at your chosen strains and they are big and healthy and well on their way to filling up most of your available grow-room floor space by utilizing all the lights you have. You should have also done your lower branch pruning about a week before now so your plants have had time to recover and are bursting with energy from the top growth (I bet you are dreaming of the glistening trichomes you will be looking at in the future).
