Relying on the power of the sun, you won’t need to spend a ton of money on an outdoor grow. You’ll need some soil, fertilizer, seeds or clones, and maybe a small greenhouse to get them started. You won’t need to pay for electricity for lights, AC units, or dehumidifiers, and you can even collect rainwater.
How to set up your outdoor marijuana grow
In hot climates, sandy soil should be mulched to help with water retention and to keep roots from getting too hot.
Heavy clay soils drain slowly and don’t hold oxygen well, so they will need to be heavily amended. A few weeks before you plant, dig large holes where you’ll be placing your weed plants and mix in big amounts of compost, manure, worm castings, or other decomposed organic matter. This will provide aeration and drainage, as well as nutrients for the plants.
Me too. I’ve just been keeping mine inside. We’ve been between 103 – 107 virtually everyday. We hit 109 once. It doesn’t bother me at all I’m a native. But I didn’t want to take a chance with the girls. The one I wanted most to grow outside is a Mekong High which I’ve read can reach 15 feet + – but I’ve just decided to turn her this way and that. I’m fixing to have to start soon too because she’s growing inches a day now, leaving the other girls in the dust.
Thanks for updating – maybe we’ll get a bite from an experienced Texas grower if we put the thread at the top on occasion.
