My plants are 28 days old. When can I start leaving them out in the sun full time? Right now I leave them out in the sun for about 2-3 hours, then I close the blinds about half way.

ras, I'm in Kalifornia... really arid here in the summer.
When I germinate things late in the season, indoors, I put them outside during the day, soon as they sprout up and have real leaves. I put em so they get morning sun. Afternoon sun can get brutal, here!

Once transplanted into the ground, full sun is good for most strains, but they must have water every day, and sometimes the leaves will droop each day at hottest time.

Good luck
rc

Yeah, the afternoon sun can get brutal here too, thats why I was wondering if I should only keep them in the sun for half the day. I have noticed that they are growing faster with more sun though. I just dont want to burn them up.

Sounds like a plan. I should be able to start that process in another week or so. Right now, its just to cold.
