About time to let the girls out


Almost time , I’m thinking about putting the tallest one out in a 15 gallon grow bag today . We should be past any frost danger. They are Afghani photos btw. I figure start with one and maybe do the other two in a week or so.

What’s your day time temps and what’s your plan for hardening them?

15 gal bag can be a bugger to move sometimes.

The temps are 60-70s depending on cloud cover , nights are in the 50s. It’s only about 2-3 weeks earlier than I normally would put them out. That’s why I thought about starting with one and seeing how goes. I use tomato cages for support and plan to cover them in clear plastic if needed.

Where I’m at I have to be very care to introduce mine to real sun slowly. I start with 20 minutes or so twice a day and move up in 20 minutes increments until I have out there for several hours. Before I leave them in full sun all day.

I took some out for a 1 hour hardening and receive a package, forgot about them in the sun… screwed up the whole grow.

Even at 70f the first introduction to sun can be brutal on them.

Ok, wasn’t sure what you meant by hardening them. I was just going to put on my best Chopper Reid Aussie accent and tell them “ Harden the f##k up!” Lol

LOL… dude I think I could actually hear that. :joy: :rofl: :joy: :rofl:

@DankyMcSkunkbud his skits are funny,had a couple friends from Oz show me them.

You plan to put them into a 15 gal bag you better have a way to wheel it around cause I use 30 and 10 gal bags and even when on the drier side the 10 gal is heavy. Good luck

I actually filled one with soil from my compost bin and carried it across the lawn and up onto my back deck, so I could transplant it. They are a bit on the heavy side.
