SECURITY - Weed Growing Guide
Its interesting that pot plants really do blend in with other plants to the
point that they are unidentifiable by all but the most observant. I remember a
relative of the family on a visit to Texas showed me his corn in the garden and
I was standing 3feet away from several pot plants before I recognized them for
what they were.
Plants started outdoors late in the season never get very big and never
attract the least bit of attention when placed next to plants of similar or
taller stature. Even tall plants grown among several trees will be almost
invisible in their camouflage.
Outdoors the object is to control access to an area, and not to arouse
suspicion. Tuck them here and there, never in a recognizable pattern. Space them
out, and fit them in to the existing landscape such that they get full sun, but
they are hidden or blend in. Fence lines and groups of several together are
best. Try to find strains that seem to match the surrounding plants. Feed
nitrogen to your plants if they need to be greener to blend in. Some growers
even use plastic red flowers, pinned to a plant, disguising it as a flower bush.
Visit the plants at night on full moons, and if your visible to neighbors,
appear to be pruning a tree, mowing the lawn, or doing something in the yard
that makes you invisible.
Dig a hole and put a potted plant in it. The plants height will be reduced by
at least a foot.
Some growers top the plant when it is 12" high, and grow the 2 tops
horizontally along a trellis. The plant will never be over 3 feet tall, and
never arouses suspicion from neighbors. This type of plant can even be grown in
your yard in full view. Many stories abound of having the neighbors over for a
BBQ and nobody ever noticed the nice plants over by the fence...
