Has anyone grown this outside? If so with what kind of success? I recently seen pics of it grown outdoors in Spain at 38 degrees N lat. They gave a mid to late Sept finishing date. This is awesome pot............. Id appreciate some responces aswell.Clown I want ,well am thinking about trying it at about 43 degrees N lat (mid west).PEACE!!!

It’s hard to say for sure. The local climate at 43ºN would still be greatly affected by the altitude and geography of the region – plains, coastal, etc..

Mr Nice is a fast-blooming variety, so even a short summer would provide enough sunlight to flower this strain. The real question is when Mr Nice would begin flowering.

Indoors, flowering is easy to initiate, as growers can give plants an exact 12hr photoperiod  whenever they wish.

Outdoors, the photoperiod declines slowly after the summer solstice. The length of the longest day in your area will give you an idea of how many minutes of daylight are lost each day as the year moves towards the autumnal equinox (when the day is as close to 12hours as it gets). In Holland, our longest day is 18 hours long, so we lose six hours of daylight in the three months between solstice and equinox.

Early strains which give consistently good results in northern Europe will begin flowering at a longer photoperiod. Most strains will begin flowering at a slightly longer p/period than 12 hours. Indoors, 12hrs is the standard time given for efficient power usage and a p/period that will cause every strain to flower.

Mr Nice is probably capable of starting to bloom in a 13hr or even 14hr p/period.

If you’re experimenting, it would be better to try clones outdoors than whole seed plants, as the margin for error is infinitely greater with clones (keeping the ‘master copy’ of each female seed-plant in the form of a mother allows you to replace them). Some could be put out early in the year as normal, to see when they are naturally inclined to flower, others could be manipulated – such as by covering them from the outdoor p/period after 12hrs each day; by starting them flowering in a controlled indoor p/period, then moving outside; by ‘nighting’ plants – giving them 72 hours of complete darkness, then setting them outside in the natural p/period. The latter two methods are not 100% effective, but they’ve been known to produce very good results.

At a guess, Mr Nice grown outdoors in your location, with no p/period manipulation would be finished by mid October.

I responded once but am not sure if it was sent if so please delete this one. To start thank you for your insight. At this time my plan of action would be this. Germ the 16 seeds, veg them for a month or so, # them, take cuttings root these numberd cuttings. Once rooted sex them, and identify the earliest female of the group. She would then be the mother plant for the crops. My question would be would all of her cuttings have her chronological age? So despite being a 1 month old clone they would actually be say her age then  there rooted age.????? Possibly a 5 month old etc etc. I say this because that would be a deffinate advantage, over a  freshly germed unsexed seedling. Wouldnt it? And also didnt it once say in a Sensi catalogue that clones flower one week faster than the mother or seedlings? It was something like that.  What do you think my fellow bud phiens????    Any one know about Mr. nices mould resistance?

Hello,

why so much effort, scrappy? I sucessfully grew Shiva Shanti on sea level at the 50th latitude in West Germany between solstice and beginning of November. Ocean and Gulf Stream heat a lot hence the length of the growing season should be the same as yours if you grow not too high in the mountains.

Although a plant from seed is usually sex-inhibited for a month or so while a cutting can flower right away, when you count the stress from root amputation and optional hormone treatment and everything else together there is not much of a difference.

To exaggerate a bit, mould attacts plants which were already sick in the first place. Stop to wonder for a moment what this strain is made of and for and you should be able to grow it. Hint: G13 is from Missisippi, Hash Plant from Afghanistan.

Uli

JFTR, G13 isn't from MIssissippi, that's just where it was being studied by the US govt.; it was liberated from the DEA(?) labs there.
 
G13 is a high-pedigree Afghani, as far as anyone can tell.
 
Clones are the same genetic age as the mother, but this doesn't really help them flower faster, except for the fact that seedlings can be inhibited from fklowering in the first weeks after germination, as Grasso mentions.

Ganja just so you know the truth the original G13 was liberated from the united states govts marijuana research compound in mississippi, the dea has no role in it. And it is a very powerful indica in its own right. peace!!!!!
