Plant of the Month: April 2014
Official Rooster Intro
A very BIG welcome all 'ers to my First Winter Grow, I am just off my First Outdoor Grow and the Journal as well as the grow was a Wopping success with my MONSTER winning PoTM April 2014 and a dried and Cured weight of 1.76 KG, I am hoping all of the Green Karma and EPIC growers that helped with my first grow will follow me to this Journal!!
Please feel free to go check Out my First Journal as well as Outdoor grow ever HERE
Ok so this Journal was mostly inspired my a fellow member Relaxed Lester, He had a Winter journal that IMHO was a HUGE success so i want to take his original ideas and improve as well as adjust on of my South African Climate. My grow will consist of two stages, The Veg will happen Indoor in my Grow House then when they are ready will be moved to my green house like set-up outside for the flower stage, this way i get to utilize the winter sun for the flower stage thus cutting back on cost BIG TIME.
Well here is the setup i will be using for the winter as well as the whole grow spec... Please come back and look at this info as i will adjust it as i add more plants or change something to the grow.
