Try to get soil that is pure dirt with perlite/vermiculite/peat. Add some blood meal and bone meal to that.

Start em off in cups under flourescents (240-400 watts is good, 3-5 4 ft. double bulb fixtures, of course depends on amount of plants, you want the lights as close to the plants as possible) or an MH light (150 watts). This is the vegetative stage.

Transplant them into bigger pots, you'll want about a gallon volume per foot of planned height. Flower (change the light cycle from 24 hrs a day to 12 on/12 off which induces budding) them when they're 1/3-1/2 the planned height (sativas will grow taller than indicas). For the flowering stage put them under an HPS light, again the wattage depends on number of plants. Make sure you have really good ventilation for the MH and HPS lights as they get quite hot.

Type of seeds depends on what you want, sativa strains give a real "heady" upper high and grow tall with lots of space betweern nodes, indica strains give a couchlock, bomber high and grow shorter and quicker with tighter nodes.

For seeds go to www.seedsdirect.to and for more info go to www.overgrow.com Their FAQ section is great to read, once you're good with those you should go to their forums to learn tons.

A great soilless mix is 2 parts peat moss, 1 part perlite, and 1 part vermiculite. Use fish emulsion for fertilizer, and don't cheap out, start with a HID light.

I'd put them outside.  It's spring time!  Take advantage.  Especially if you haven't grown before..you'd be surprized how fast they can grow to be taller than you.  If you wanted to boost chances for survival, you could start them indoors and move them.  Make sure they get lots of light.

Have fun :smile:

To simplify:  Find a spot with good rich fluffy soil which allows access for lots of direct sunlight.  Soak your seeds in a cup of distilled water overnight.  Plant them at chosen location the next day, about 1/2 inch underground.  Return periodically at 6-8 weeks to dispose of males.  Return again in late fall with garbage bags and hedge clippers :spliff:

Overgrow.com would probably be the best resource for this..check it out.

Edit: :lol: in that case..just plant 'em! I should have mentioned, be sure to spread them out a little so they dont crowd eachother later on in the season..and forget about weeding out the males..there won't be any.  Not much involved in growing outdoors, nature pretty much does all the work for ya :smile:

Sounds like one of those street myths, Give em 20-20-20 fert when there vegging and 15-30-15 fert for budding. And also look up information on supercroping, I hear its good, but I dont know from experience.

Bone meal, no phospherus= shitty stems.

Hey Bud,
goto www.overgrow.com, or www.cannibisculture.com.
Read up on everything, learn soil mixtures, you can get a grasp of the 15-20-15 and all the other ratios for mixture.

They have newb growing tutorials, everything you could imagine are in those 2 sites. Hope this helps a bit.

Peace all.

I hear that burlap bags are pretty good to plant in, since the roots can grow right through the bags and into the ground if you pic a good spot. Plus, you can move the bags around while the plants are still young.

no sugars, they draw pests! especially outdoors.
No sodas, or piss, or other stuff your friends cousin once told him.
Find a stealthy spot where the ground is moist and the soil looks good. you don't wanna have to lug 5 galons of water every day to your grow.
You cannot over water outdoors in good soil, unless you are growing in a swamp,
any Hydro nutes work well in soil as a boost, but good soil will provide all the plants need.
Make sure they get planty of sun.
If you want to stay Organic, I recommend budswell guano tea. Available online or at any hydro store.
and yes, hit Overgrow . com for some outdoor advice.
hope this helps,
Ninja
