First Grow Please Critique

those small ones should have 16 hours light daily and the ones with buds already shouldnt have more than 12 hours light. You need to move the small ones and keep them on a separate schedule

It doesn't really work the way you are thinking. As long as you can control the temps and supply the food needed to grow, the more light the better. But you are upping the plants metabolic rate with more light....you need to support it with food/water/temps/rh/co2. As long as you do that, it's hard to have too much light. I've done 4500 in a 5x10 w/co2.

So it's not a question of "too much light." It's a question of striking the right balance. The balance of what your setup will support for optimal quality and yield. And the first thing I thought when I saw your pics was that you need more light. I would do at least 400 veg and 600 for flower in a 4x4.

See how small your plants are? You've gone through all this effort and time, to yield very little. You will see once it's dried and cured. If you had more light, you would yield substantially more. One plant would out yield 4 of what you have there. But too much light and not enough cooling = heat problems. Too much light but not enough nutes will cook your plants. Too much nutes but not enough light will burn the plants. It's all about the balance. Right now, you are way to lean on light.

It looks great for your first time. If your worst mistake was not having enough wattage, that's an easy fix.
Thank hou

Yes 70w hps from home depot
hey, look at "1,000 bulbs.com" great bulbs - they have 500 watt CFL bulbs that are sefl-balast, for veg and flower are about $50.00 (+/-) a 100, watter ( equal to 500 watt MH/hps)) would really improve your results if used for veg or flower. Your 'area' looks great and thanks for sharing !!!!!

Yeah I’d push some clean water for about a week and you should see clear changes once she starts eating the stored nutes.

I personally do a full flush first in my soil hit it with a good molasses watering then run 2 weeks clean water.
But I think a lot of people don’t do full flush for some reason.
I wait til I notice the swell stop then start watching trichs.

Thank you for the advice!! Is it possible to put a plant back into veg After harvest?

Yes it sure is
In that situation you need to approach harvest slightly different. You want big buds mainly but don’t want to chop the plant up too much at once. Main cola gonna cripple em for a little bit. Little stuff don’t worry about cutting off leave it on n pluck it off in veg later. You want to keep your good leaves. And you don’t want to completely starve the plant as you’re not throwing it away. Still drop nutes to about none. Only feed if plant tells you too. Once your done harvesting put 24 hr light on. It’ll take about a month to reveg sometimes. I found my clones revegged quicker than big plants did though.

Oh and keep in mind not hanging whole plant adjustments need to be made to drying area. Cause it will dry faster which is no good.
