Growing cannabis outdoors in georgia

If you’re growing from seed, the first step in the life of your cannabis plant is germination. Once the seed has sprouted, it will immediately grow two little round leaves, called cotyledon leaves, that will be responsible for delivering energy to the seedling until it starts to grow the more familiar fan leaves we all know and love.

Use a grow journal. Tracking the details of your grow efforts, from germination to final cure, will help you become a better cannabis-plant parent. When it’s time for a new season, reviewing the successes and failures from the last crop will make your thumb greener — not to mention improve the quality and quantity of your final harvest. There are lots of ready-made cannabis grow journals out there, but really all you need is a pad of paper and an eye for detail.

Early spring: germination stage

For photoperiod plants, timing is everything. Photoperiod cannabis plants take their cue from Mother Nature (or more specifically the number of uninterrupted hours of darkness) to start flowering. As fall sets in and hours of darkness hit twelve per night, the plant will be triggered into its flowering stage.

Mid-to-late fall: harvest season

A photoperiod plant will continue to live its best vegetative life until the light-to-dark ratio starts to tip in favor of darkness. When photoperiod plants start getting 12 hours of darkness, they will move into their final phase — and perhaps the most exciting for growers — the flowering stage.

Most plants, including marijuana, don’t grow well without sunlight.

OP, keep in mind you have 4-6 weeks from spouts before the plants are sexually mature. That is when the length of night is important. You are cutting it a little close, but you should be alright. If they do early flower, it will be a chance for you to pick out your males.

What has worked for me in the past is to get my holes ready at least a month before putting plants in them. That gives everything a chance to root through them. If you have to plant outside, try to start you seeds in an aluminium tray or something like that. Give them a few days in the tray, then transplant into the holes. It’s worked for me.

Also. Make seeds. It’s easy.
