 it is finaly time to start business of my own,
im sick of getting ripped of by some trippy dealers that sell me crap
and would rather mug and kill me instead of just getting payed.

i live in southern germany and the weather (even though its april) is just great !
i picked a great spot for my seedlings to grow into some quality herb
and im probably going to get started on the weekend ! im ordering the
"sensi seeds outdoormix " and  hoping for the best !

i would highly appreciate if some one would give me a walkthrough
 or just any help at all?


im sending in some pics of my "spot" soon so you can tell me what still needs to be done and what doesnt !
if my location is good or if it isnt !
pls standby and w8 for them!!!

       peace dready

Welcome Phil. Your best bet is to buy a book about outdoor growing if you want to grow the best plants possible.
 
Basically, you want to prepare the ground with good quality soil, make sure the plants get as much sunlight as possible and make sure they are in complete natural darkness during the night-time - no interference from street lamps or house lights.

1. Up to two metres or more if they have the room.
 
2. A "grow fertiliser" - high in nitrogen - up until start of August or so. A "bloom" fertiliser - high in phosphorus and potassim - from then on.
 
3. Cannabis can survive a few frosts with minimal damage, but it will not survive persistently low temperatures. It will not grow so well if the temps are below 10-15 Celsius. Ideally, you want 20-30 degrees during the day, maybe 15-20 at night.

1. Yes, you should do this. If you mix up a really good quality organic soil, you might not even have to fertilise the plant during its life. However, even in top-quality soil, I'd still be inclined to add a mild dose of nutrients with the feed water once every 10 days or so during the flowering period.
 
2. This will work fine as well, make sure you plant them outside when the weather is good. They will need a while to get used to the new environment, then they should continue growing as normal.

Hello,

you should dig a shoulder-deep hole only in case that you are one of those terrorists who want to pollute our ground water. (In former times it had to be the jews, the red-haired and the sorcerers, now it is the terrorists.) If all you want to do is grow some annual plants then have a look at the farmers sitting on their iron horses dragging some of several tools over the acre! Just like man can live in different environments, ranging from the arctics to the tropics, so can CANNABIS live on different kinds of soils or even without any but hydroponically.

Uli

1. 15 hours of daylight is fine.
 
2. Most plants will give indications of their sex after 5-6 weeks, but it will be August before they really start to grow flowers and it becomes obvious.

1. The growing cycle ends in the autumn, usually between late September and early November, depending on the strain. Some tropical strains will flower for longer and are not really suitable for growing outside the tropics, because the winter will kill them before they are ready for harvest. You can start growing plants anytime between April (if the weather is warm enough) and July.

2. You can store seeds for several years in a cool, dark, dry place. After five years or so, the germination rate will probably start to decline. They will last longer in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them, but this can be risky if there's any moisture left in the seeds.

1. how far apart can you plant the seeds?

2.fully grown: how much water do they take ?

3. how many hours of sunlight do they need ?

1. At least one metre.
 
2. A lot . . . but the roots will spread out to find water in the deep soil, so be careful not to overwater just because the top later of soil is dry.
 
3. Try to plant them in direct sunlight, no shade.

    although I am new to sensi gardening I have grown many many plants from differant groups and I think the basics relate just fine to cannabis
For starters, digging the ground to a depth of 1.5m for annuals really is overkill.
if you needed to remove that much soil to get decent growing conditions I think I'd try somewhere else!
as for watering, just dont let the soil get waterlogged or bone dry. somewhere in the middle(damp) will be fine.
and if I'm reading your questions right , don't worry about how much sunlight they get, just let them have all there is and they will grow quite happily
