    Vegging for 8 weeks.... help?

    I believe I been in vegging state for about 7-8 weeks now. I had to transfer the plant into a larger 1 gallon with miracle grow soil (moisture control) and I think it stunted growth for a week, its growing more now.

    But my question is, my plant is a little over a half a foot long, and i been vegging for almost 8 weeks now, No flowers or balls popped up yet, Should I go 12/12 now? Even though my plant is still so short?

    Plant is Bubba kush, I read they are short and bushy with small yields, but 8 weeks? not even a foot long?

    It is getting a little bushy now though. Any advice on what to do?

    Those look more like 100w equivalent CFL's, or 23w actual I'm guessing? If that's the case, then slow growth is perfectly normal. You won't get much bud with that setup...

    Looks a little over-watered and possibly has a Nitrogen deficiency. But I also think that your soil is too heavy and is holding the water in it too well, which might cause the leaves to look light green (or is that just the pics?). For cannabis you want light and airy soil, so adding 25-30% perlite is recommended plus proper drainage.

    Even in soil you need to check your ph, 6.3-6.8 is the range.

    MG soil has nutes for about 3-4 weeks after each transplant depending on how much light you are giving them. Some strains are also heavier feeders than others.

    How often are you watering?

    Sorry for the late repsonse, Yes major changes are happening,

    1. Added more cfl lights, 100 watt equiv 5000k spec. total 4 to try to speed up growth, at this point (over 2 months) it's only about a foot long. Cuz i only been using 2 cfl's until today.

    So i may just try to get some clones out of it, or Go 12/12 tonight using bubbler system. I already bought the foxfarm nutes. I only got Tiger bloom and Big bloom though because i'm thinking flower time. Although I now wish I got the Grow big one too because I'm reconsidering flowering it and just keeping it in veg to get it bigger and cloning it. What do you think?


    2. my plant seems to be dying and not growing... I am setting up a bubbler system (tote) and about to transplant to attempt to save my baby using foxfarm nutes. Will load some pictures within the hour.

    By dying, I mean leaves turning Yellow , even on the top leaves some are turning yellow on the tips. And it does not seem as healthy due to the leaves being smaller and thinner than before.

    Yea, I just tried again with no luck. Will come back from time to time to see if its fixed.

    I just last night transplanted my plant from MG soil, to bubble bucket DIY with foxfarm nutes. I wonder how long it will take for my plant to get out of shock? Considering it survives? /bites nails
