outdoor bagseed grow

I have no idea what my PH is and have never checked it, i threw some lime in with all this dirt so hopefully that will keep it in check.

i moved them out into several different plots, around my site. Becuase my site is quite a hike/drive away i wasn’t able to look over all of them as closely as i had wanted. i had them all seperated into 8 smaller sites, this way if one site wasn’t good for whatever reason i would have 7 others to work with.

i have a horrible slugg problem that im constantly batteling but i feel like finally i have gotten the upper hand, i have been using organic pesticide (excpet for one time when i used Seven and burned my leaves pretty good in the beggining) its been organic ever since.

I am using fish fertilizer 5tbs per 2 gal. along with molasses (3tbs per 2 gal) every other feeding, along with a soluable nitrogen that i ad into the 2 gals. I get the water from my fishpond, and they seem to love the combination. i feel like i have been pumping them with nuets and they seem to love it, i had a mg def but quickly corrected it early in the grow.

So i have had a couple of small operations that have come out good.. my main problem has been the frost cutting my flowering periods short. but i decided what the hell, i started 120 bagseed..seeds. on the 28th of may, they where all under a 400wtt HPS for a week (24 hr light), untill they threw out there first set of real leaves. i have been feeding them nuets at full strenght this whole time, and never saw any signs of burn..

after some bug issues and rain issues i was left with 70 or so strong ladies (hopefully) that i transplanted into a larger site, and began to feed them again.

I dug down about 2 ft. all along this site, and took out all the dirt, then used 4 bags of petemoss, 3 bags of organic top soil, 3 bags of potting soil, and 5 bags of the MG mosture lock. put all this dirt into trenches, and then put the original dirt back over it, capping all the shit i brought in, i spent a couple hundred on dirt alone, and am glad i did as they seem to be doing good, already they are bigger than anything ive gotten before.

We also suggest protecting your seedlings at this point because the slightest stress to their little bodies could kill them. Pests, pets, or simple carelessness could easily harm your seedlings so, until they are strong enough to withstand a little stress, enclose them in a plastic dome until they are at least a few inches tall. You can purchase plastic domes from your local nursery or grow shop or simply make some by cutting the top off a few 2-liter bottles and setting it on top of your babies. This will also help insulate your seedlings to minimize drastic temperature fluctuations.

With a little effort, the seedling should soon push through the soil revealing its first set of “sucker leaves.” This is an exciting time as this is an indication of its impending growth; the sucker leaves are hungry for light and will absorb it readily to provide energy for future growth. Be sure your lighting is sufficient at this point as the bulk of your plants growth will depend on it.

How to Sprout Seeds from a Bag of Cannabis

Also important to note is the unpredictable viability of bag seeds. If the crop was harvested before the seeds were mature, for example, or if they became damaged during the curing or packaging process, they may not sprout at all. Though this may not be much of a loss for outdoor grows, considering the cost if setting up an indoor grow, it would be a shame if the seeds didn’t take hold. To increase the likelihood of your bag seeds sprouting, keep your eyes peeled for healthy seeds.

Once you’ve amended your soil and secured a grow location, it’s time to sprout some seeds! Though many prefer procuring seeds from a seed bank to increase the likelihood of viability, bag seeds are definitely worth a go, but may not be as fruitful as store-bought seeds. Nevertheless, if you have a few marijuana bag seeds lying around, you should definitely try to sprout them. Here’s how.

H ow cool is it that we can finally start growing our own weed legally (in many places, anyway)? Even better is the potential of growing weed at little to no cost – certainly much cheaper than your local dispensary. Granted, if you’re trying to grow indoors, you’ll need the proper equipment to supplement the outdoor environment, but if you’re planning on growing marijuana outdoors, all you need is healthy soil, a safe and secure grow spot, and of course, some cannabis seeds to get you started.

We certainly don’t want to discourage you from germinating bag seeds from your cannabis stash, but there are still some cautions you should account for. For example, even if you know the strain that the seed came from, you don’t know what caused the seed to be produced in the first place. If it was a male plant, it could pass on some of its traits resulting in an unknown phenotype. Whereas the bag it came from may have been an uplifting strain, its father could pass more lethargic traits to its offspring.

In that same vein, if a bag of cannabis contains seeds, it could be due to stress of the mother plant. When a female cannabis plant gets stressed, her natural response is to produce seeds as a means of evolutionary survival. However, hermaphroditic females (female plants that contain seeds) also tend to produce hermaphroditic offspring. In other words, growing from bag seed can sometimes result in seedy weed, even when given the best grow conditions possible.

Growing our own medicine is a freedom that only a few get to enjoy. If you’re one of the lucky ones to live in a state where cannabis cultivation is legal, exercise your freedom by growing marijuana in your own home! Though you can certainly purchase seeds from a seed bank to increase your chances of success, many bag seeds will grow just as well (and save you a lot of money in the long-run).
