Outdoor to Indoor

Has anyone ever started a plant outdoor. Got it to the size you wanted and then put it in an indoor setting to flower? I’m thinking of doing this to free up room in my outdoor area.

    • Yes, however it usually goes the other way but sometimes you don't have a choice. I personally have tried starting them inside then putting them outside which you have to harden the plant first basically no direct sun at first then introduce the sun so it doesn't shock the plant.

       

      When you are going from outside to inside you don't have to worry so much about the light and usually done because winter hits sooner than expected, the main concern at that point is bugs last thing you want is to bring in a pest thats hard to get ride of and then you have to clean the hell out of everything. hope your transfer goes smooth.

      • Good answer by Hulk. Spray the plant off with water real good, that will help not bringing in critters.(if it ain't flowering) Just take all the preclusions you can think of.

        • I put mine in the shower and it didnt slow them down one bit. I think they used the soap and shampoo to freshen up for a breeding frenzy 

          To me bringing plants from outside to inside is like driving with the oil light on and hoping the problem is with the light not the oil

          • That is probably the best way to infest your indoor grow area with bugs, especially mites there is.  The plants I brought inside from outside were in flower but I was afraid the cold would ruin them, I did a major defol on them and put them in a shower for a few hours before I put them in my grow room. It took 2 years and a couple of gallons of Mighty from NPK ($$$) to get rid of them, its the only thing that actually kills the mites and the larva other than some other predatory mites I read about. Forget about Diatomaceous Earth, it may be a great preventative measure but once they are on the plant it doesn't do shit. 4500 lady bugs didnt do anything but over eat, nap and die. Neem Oil wont kill the larva and you dont want to consume neem oil, Mighty is safe for humans to consume, it didnt hurt me or the wife but knowing there are dead mite carcasses in your smoke, butter and oils kind of sucks. I still wake up screaming in the middle of the night and then spend the next 2 days in a closet staring at a light bulb. 

            So my vote is dont do it.

            I have another couple of plants growing outside this year and I know they will not mature before the first frost so I am planning on putting a cheap green house around them this year, plus I will spray them down with Mighty a few times before flower.

            Since them I have read that plants with a high brix level wont be bothered by bugs, I guess they are off the bugs radar, no matter I still wont bring them into my grow area or drying area.

            Now if you will excuse me I need to go sit in a closet, drink and twitch.
