equatorial marijuana cultivation
    #1211062 - 01/12/03 04:29 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I'm coming off my first attempt at cultivating in an equatorial area. My results weren't very good. The seeds were some decent Cambodian. Planted in March, the plants grew like wildfire, but didn't start budding until mid October.
As it turns out they never made decent buds - it almost looked like they wanted to go back into vegetative mode. Waited on them until Dec 20 or so (the shortest day of the year), then pulled the leafy bastards up.

Is this what I can expect growing outdoors down here near the equator given the nearly equal duration of light/dark? Any ideas how to make 'em bud better?

There are roughly nine galaxies for every person alive on the planet today. Each of these galaxies has a billion suns, give or take the odd hundred million

Sounds like the seeds werent so good.Try another sort
like indicas if there still leggy then its something to do with there being not much dif between summer and winter day light hours.

Good luck :smile: next time

My first were some morrocan seeds that grew leggy and sucked bud wise but on trying out indicas and skunk (indica sativa crosses) i had much better results :smile:

Well, marijuana grows best in a cooler climate, although this cambodian strain seems interesting...What you should do next time, is plant at usual time of year, just use a heat shade... Or plant in a shadier area, there won't be ANY lack of light, the sun gives off more lumens than any plant could entirly use up. So, plant in shady areas, and to induce budding early, just throw something over them to cut out the light around late august, should be finnished by mid october cause sativas finish late (I'm assuming CAMBODIAN is sativa)....
IMO Anyways...
I'm PMing you about seeds... :grin:

if your plants won't bud good due to light then put a tarp up to the west of them (or the east i guess) and take away some day light when it's budding time. Sorry if this is an impossibility due to the legal status of marijuana in your country and the whole not wanting to get busted and all.
