Ask Ed: Grow Tip – Winter Window Crop!

Do you have a south-facing window that light streams through all winter long? Congratulations! You have a great spot to grow some nice little potted plants!

As long as your plants get 5-6 hours of sunlight a day, or a combination of sunlight and bright indoor light, good soil, plenty of water and nutrients, they will grow beautiful buds!

To keep the plants growing vegetatively a bit before you allow them to flower, make sure to interrupt the dark cycle by turning on a light.

Then, when they get to a foot tall or so, give them light only during the day. Keep them totally dark at night without interrupting the dark cycle.

To ensure uninterrupted darkness, you can move them into a closet at night. When the plants start flowering, you will have to sex them and remove the males. 6-8 weeks later you will have some nice buds.

Also, the holidays are right around the corner. Starter plants make great holiday gifts!!

    just get some chicken wire and bind them in a circle around your plants and that should about do it. Its worked thus far with my cats.

    I guess I kinda agree with gstlab3 on this one. Pretty basic stuff. On the flip side maybe someone is a first time grower or maybe someone didn’t know to put in south windows because the sun doesn’t set north and south…..just a point. Im new 2 this site and totally sick of the kid shit on the other sites.

    You guys are missing the picture Ed is giving totally usful information that should be valued not critized. Use this information at you own discretion, if you life right downtown and your south facing window points right out on mainstreet, maby you shouldnt grow wintry window plants, but there are plenty of people, like myself who live in the country and am now happily growning 5 window plants in my bedroom with a south facing window facing THE WOODS, now if i can just keep my cats away from them…. got n e tips Ed?

    Hey Ed,
    I’ve been reading your advice since you worked for a magazine who’s name we won’t mention. You have given some of the best trouble-shooting I’ve ever gotten. I know you’ll never give up on the good fight, thank you for that and all your hard work over the years. Over-Grow The Government!!

    Cute.

    And just pretend that the odor filling your home isn’t real and that the neighbors walking by won’t see right into your new greenhouse.

    I’m sick of all this stupid grow your own advice. People are going to be thrown in jail for taking it.

    Great work, Ed. Your readers aren’t likely to be as lucky as you were.

    OVERGROW ED!!!!

    not everyone knows this. If your so advanced, you should be on some private forums that hosted out of a cave, not the 2nd largest marijuana magazines website.
