How are these buds looking for a cfl grow?

    In the fourth week of flowering, this strain normally finishes in 7-8 weeks.

    My first grow, are these really small buds? That's kind of my first impression but I've been on overly concerned grower to a T this entire process.

    Id say they plants are looking good! What lights are you using?

    What kind of CFL's are you using?

    Those plants look to be Sativa dominant is that correct? If so, it would be really hard to get a good harvest off of them using CFL's. For one, Sativas have less leaf matter and less chlorophyll than indicas so they absorb a lot LESS light and take MUCH longer to finish (surprised by the 7-8 week finishing time on this puppy). Also with Sativas, they don't produce higher quantities of buds, they produce higher quality buds.

    Peace,

    Just a standard hybrid. Maybe leaning a little closer to sativa but still totally doable in a closet grow. Hopefully lol

    Cool, but what lights are you using?

    3 42 watt 2700 lumen bulbs and one 13 watt bulb. They're all 2700K except for one of the 42 watts. So...a little short of 10,000 lumen for one plant in a 1x1 square foot area. I'm going to try to get more light for the next grow but for now I'll probably just finish it off as is.

    That sounds like a fairly good amount of lumen output for the size of your area. Also, based on the size of your area, your plant can't possible be that big. If your plant isn't that big, your roots probably aren't that massive either. Smaller roots = bigger buds. Thicker stalk = more nutrient uptake. Bigger Roots + Thicker Trunk + Bigger overall plant = Huge Buds. I'd say your buds are coming along very nicely for a small sativa dom. plant grown under roughly 10,000 lumens using CFL's.

    Cheers,
