marijuana and frost

I live in the midwest and I have 4 plants going outdoors in 6 gallon pots. The biggest is nearing 4 feet tall now. According to the farmers almanac my area gets its first frost in early september. The plant will not even be flowering for a month before this happens. The plants are in the woods where I wont be able to tend to them on a daily basis so im wondering CAN large healthy marijuana plants handle light frost if its brought on gradually as part of their enviroment? Is it worth it to risk it, well theres no other choice i cant put a 6 foot plant in my house :/

Opinions please thanks

almost every strain in existence is a hybrid. true land race plants are impossible to find unless you’re in the know.

indica dominants do much better with acclimation to cold temperatures, and some are very cold hard and frost resistant. acclimation is the key, and on nights where it may drop into the 20’s, bring the plant/s inside if you can. simple frost bite will only effect some fan leaves, and will leave bud leaves and flowers to mature. a full freeze through will kill the plant, but not a snap frost.

Its my understanding when it gets cold it makes the plant throw out res like nuts. I would guess anything below 45 degrees would be very cold for a plant of tropical origin. I doubt anyone will be able to give a textbook answer to that. I’d imagine temps not quite freezing such as mid 30s would cause some intense budding! I can’t wait till it happens. I’m going to make a thread all about it in here when it comes september because I think it would be a good little study showing pics of the plant and daily/nightly temps and effects of frost and whatnot

Sorry long as paragraph I just smoked a joint im in the zone

resin is genetic, and the result of your ability to provide proper conditions. correctly grown happy pot plants will produce the most copious amounts of resin. cold will have no effect on the chemicals within the trichomes. cold temps slow production a bit. ideal temperatures are 75-85 for flower.

your hydro nutes should work fine for soil. i don’t use fox farm, it’s more formulated for tomatoes, imo. i like gh and an (or any comparable three part formula) plus cal/mag and a flower booster.

Hey thanks for that answer about the hydro nutes for soil I had the same question

But also I’m disappointed that the cold won’t spur resin production

Resin quality and profile is genetic.. but the amount of resin produced is no where near genetic.. the resin is a protecting/defense device.. there is a purpose.. not just to get you high man.

and why do you think there’s studies on UVB lights really bringing out the resin on a plant.. because it’s protecting it..

In canada. I was told by an older buddy of mine that showed me the ropes.. he grew outdoor for 15+ years.. and he said if you can leave it for the first frost.. do it.. it will put on some weight for you..
