Stealth in the South- US

10 posts in this topic

Well this is my first official outdoor grow and I must say, so far so good! I also must warn you that I have not been keeping a very accurate log but I took lots of pictures and will continue to take more till the harvest!

All of my plants are random seeds I have collected from quality bud, not A++ but at least B+ or greater. I soaked the seeds in water and waited for them to crack before planting them in cups of soil. For the first few weeks of each plant they were taken outside almost every day to get the sunlight they crave, weather permitting.

This led to a very uneven lighting schedule and slow growth but it ended up working well for me so hey hey window plants transfer to the outdoors nicely! All the following photos are of my plants this summer the biggest one is at least 10 weeks old. I have 4 total growing outside this season all at different stages; I am testing for what size is the best for transplant from indoor to outdoor.

Also, if anyone has experience growing larger outdoor plants, could you tell me how much it smells when flowering , like is there a smell radius around the plant or if the wind is in the right direction can you smell it from a far distance?

hi man thank for sharig your grow with us :) I can see some pitures i don't know if you solved your problem or if you still can't load them ?

Anyway good luck with your outdoor season, i will come from time to time and check on your ladies and see if they become monsters ;)

For the smell the very few times where i've done outdoor if the temps were really hot that's where you would smell the more with wind and sun, otherwise it was pretty more a radius around the plant, but perhaps mmy strains weren't the stinkiest one ^^

Have a good grow!

I don't think that was a fungus, it looked more like chlorophyll getting sunlight and turning green but its to late now those roots are now buried and are the biggest plant you see in the pics

Smell is mostly a problem on warm humid mornings when the wind comes up. Rippers here drive slowly on backroads on August and September mornings sniffing for the skunky cat-piss smell that says "Weed!". Then they park and follow their noses.

SOP here is a minimum of a 1/4 mile from any kind of road or atv trail. As my Grandpa used to say about hunting, "Walk 20 minutes off the road and you'll have the woods to yourself." Most people are too lazy to walk much longer than that in the woods. Especially where I live,the terrain is rough in the valleys and near vertical in the hills.

I'd worry more about that white canvas you've got around the bottom of the wire cage. It stands out like a sore thumb against that red clay and the surrounding vegetation. A country boy is going to spot that from a hundred yards away. Seeing that's what most rural deputies are............ well you get my drift.

The LEO in my part of the South has been using hidden game cams at wide spots on country roads in known growing areas,where growers are likely to park,and at trailheads on public lands,the sneaky bassards. Vary the way you go into your patch, and watch it for awhile from a safe distance before approaching.

Good luck.

My are is a clearing in the woods far away from public roads, im just worried about a neighbor smelling it! Your grandfather was definitely right though, no one wants to walk 20 minutes into the woods hahaha

They'll probably think it's a dead skunk or a fox marking it's territory. I wouldn't worry until the plants get tall enough to see by someone whose walking nearby who might start looking for the source of the smell.

Grandpa and his brothers used to produce something back in the woods that you could smell for hundreds of yards around when it was working. The ol' man knew how to avoid the law and nosy neighbors when making his corn based concoctions.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
