    Ok, I've been reveging my last harvest. I just took some clones so I decided to experiment with flowering the mamas outdoors during the dead of the So Cal winter. I had been bringing them in under a 315 during the nights and putting them out about 4am for the reveg. Last night I left these two ladies outside so they can bloom again. I've never done this before, but WTH. I just want to see how they'll do. Right now we have about 10 1/2 hours of sunlight. There won't be more than 12 hours of sunlight until the middle of March so I should have plenty of time to get this done. Right now temps are ranging from 68F to lows of 48F.

    Day 1 10.5 hours daylight

  2. Interesting experiment. You'll have to keep us all updated.

    OK 16 days after the Mother Nature Flip. I made a mistake on the daylight hours in the first post. It was actually 9 hours 56 min. Now the daylight is 10 hours 9 min and the temps have been between 81F and 48F. I took these pics before a watering so they're just a little droopy. They just gave me a little stretch so far and they're putting out some pistils. So far so good.

    I have a feeling these girls are gonna start gaining some weight soon. I may have to prop these girls up or they might start leaning

    We jacked up 2 clones last year... Put out early and they finished small and we still were getting snow

    That's cool. It's amazing how resilient this weed is. I thought the 35 degree swings in temp would be more detrimental than they appear to be.

    One real positive I've noticed is that there are virtually no pests that I've had to deal with.

    It'll be interesting to see what kind of weight I get. First go around I got about 2 zips dry on the Somango and 1.5 on the Blue Mystic

    Couldn't help myself. I dropped a Berry Bomb seed a few days ago. Here it is amongst some clones from my mother plants
