  1. I just wanted to know how long you guys veg for and how tall you have your plants before flowering

    How much do they grow during flowering stage

    5-6 weeks ideally, but in that time my plants would probably be at least twice that size...

    Must grow in soil
     
  4. Nothing wrong with soil.
    But yes if everything were going right they’d be bigger at 6 weeks. I flipped at 6 weeks this time. In soil.
    Could just be genetics but I’d say something slightly off.

    They do not look unhealthy
    Are you letting dry good ?
    And what are feeds ?and waters schedule?

  5. I am feeding like every 2 days when top soil is dry and following the feed schedule from the supplier could I be underfeeding or over feeding what you guys think

  6. Plants look healthy. Don’t look to be deprived on nutes. Make sure they dry most the way down before watering though. I find they grow better closer to dry than wet. How far are your lights? And what lights you running?

    IMO if that's the tent you're flowering in I'd flip soon. They'll fill it out fast

  10. Just an update my plants are on day 4 since I switched them to veg and they are stretching and are looking even bigger

    Do I count the start of the flowering stage when first signs of buds show

    Watch the one on the front right..Looks to be Sativa! If so, she will really stretch..sometimes 3x or more..
    I would begin LST (at least) NOW..Also learn about super cropping..that will be of help evening out the canopy and keeping them a little shorter. NICE job BTW.

  15. I did 60 days without any support and what an awful choice that has been. So far I have about 80 individual strings holding as many colas up as I can. Not only did I allow them to get to tall I also have about twice as many branches, at least, than I should.

    Next time I'm doing 30 days. Since you chop the bottom off all that extra time is just wasted indoors. I think.

    Would it be worth investing in a Scrog net to help support them
     
  18. Impossible to install net with the space given.
     
  19. I do 30 days. My clones are bigger than the parents in 30 days. From seed I like 6 weeks Like you said all the lowers have no way of getting real light so during the 30 days I tie around and expose everything to light.

  20. I veg for about 2 months n top them twice. The first is to strictly top them the second month is for the clones. Clone once a month ( as long as you have the room) you'll get weed once a month
