125w cfl (veg spectrum, not full spectrum) (1/6 x 1.4ft screen, ~2.5 sq ft)
Started this organic soil scrog a long time ago. using seperate pure blend organic ferts for veg and bloom.
1 white widow up front, 1 blueberry in back.
Vegged until screen was about full.
in 5th week of flowering now
you can see in pic that light is almost directly over buds. temp @70 all day.
cut off many fan leaves that were blocking light 3 weeks ago.
about 40 bud sites now, all even canopy.
buds look stunted (no growth in 2 weeks)
buds look small. i can't imagine them yeilding anything at this point.
maybe they are experiencing root bound?
or did removing fan leaves stunt growth?
perhaps the light is not powerful enough?
was thinking about putting 250w hps over them and in new soil pots and letting them burst with size. (250w because next time will go bigger even if this is overkill for only 2 plants) but is there a limited "flowering time" that we will run up against? how long to keep flowering?
don't want to buy a new light set up just yet unless it will pay off.
what to do?
