    A mirror fell on one of mah babies yesterday ( a result of me trying to put some reflection in the GB ) And about a week ago one of the lights fell on the other one... Luckly not burning it at all ( this ones fine now )

    Oh shit forgot to say what kind of plants these are. So I have 3 bag seed sprouts and 2x 3 week old " UK cheese " Ive herd good things about this strain.

    MORE PICS

    1st pic Grow set up.

    2nd pic plant 1 current. about 3 weeks

    3rd pic plant 2 ^^ ^^ ^^ ^^ ^^ ^^

    I dont have a good camera, so I used to bottle to give people an idea of how big they are, that is a 2 liter bottle.
    If I had to estimate though, I would say about a foot tall, maybe a foot and 1/2, but thats just my estimate

    One plant is looking a little weird because the mirror fell on it, I think she'll be fine.
    But I think I am ready to start flowing them. Input anyone?

    I see some white hairs, on plant 1

    Didnt check plant 2 yet.

    And if/when i do end up flowering them, i would just take out the sprouts and put them up some where. So I would have a total of.. 184w on two plants. Does this sounds resonable? And I applyed my nutes almost right after i got it like 5 days ago


    Stop bye some time check it out and add your :twocents: Thanks guys/girls will be posting up dates and replying to you guys damn near daily

    You will want to keep these short and bush in order to maximize light. Consider LST or tying them down. Check out this link for a tutorial. I'm not a CFL person so I can't give you accurate advice but if I had to say something, I'm thinking you want more light. Check out the El-Cheapo Guide to Lighting sticky in the indoor lighting forum.

    Yes. time to switch to 12/12 flower. You can expect those plants to at least double in size and perhaps triple depending on the strain. Good luck!

    Yeah size of the plants will be a problem.

    I think i might try LST.

    But should i LST then flower? or LST then wait x amount of time then flower?

    I believe it is covered in the tutorial. From what I recall, You want to do most of your training during veg but can continue into the first few weeks of flower. It will add a bit of time to length of grow.
