    I meant to say my friend had great plants, and really good smoke!

    Bought a couple things from the store today. Tape measure, ruler, and some of those bendy little arts and crafts thingies so I can start some lst. Measured whole bathroom and it's approximately (rounded up) 11x6x9. Fan I ordered was 6 in inline with 440 cfm. I'm thinking I could exchange that for a 4 in with a little lower cfm. The 6 in was only like $10 more and I'm a more is always better type of person plus I knew I would be getting a controller so I didn't think this was a problem as I could adjust my fan. But if getting a 4in will work more efficiently and be more savings wise as far as light bill I will reconsider. Other than that I don't mind keeping the 6 in and just adjusting properly

    Tied them down using just common sense I was trying to expose as much inner growth to light as possible. I only did 2 out of the 3

    Making it look easy, Sir. I enjoy pinching/crushing the main stem below the top two nodes after I train them over like such. it causes the little growth from below to blow up, while slowing the top. lets everything play catch up rather than having to chop the top off entirely

    2 days since they were topped. Same day I topped them I started to notice what I guess is "tacoing" of the leaves. They were still green but looked a bit dryer to me than usual as well. Moved my light up and pointed the small stand fan directly at it. This seemed to be the problem as things are looking better now. The air from the fan blows on my plants WONDERFULLY and cool the hell out of the heat from the light. 2 birds with one stone! Taped some panda film around some cardboard to enclose the plants more and get the most reflection and light containment from my light. Already see how it boosts growth! Still haven't rigged up my inline fan yet because I'm nowhere near flowering (stench) and as I'm able to have the door open to replenish CO2 and my central ac and fan help with temperature control

    I like the changes you've made, your plants look healthy and happy. Remind me of the strain, please.

    4 days after being topped. Plants are exploding with growth. Think I HAVE to do some lst to get some light to more of the plants insides. Plan on switching to flower when they are 3 ft tall so final height will be around 6ft so from the looks of it I'm going to be vegging for atleast another month. I not only want them tall but bush as HELL as well . They are only about a month old from seed and I already notice odor. Carbon filter install in another week or so. I know the phresh filters are highly recommended but I was thinking of buying an empty filter for $20-30 and just filling it with my own activated carbon like they sell by the pet aisle in Wally World

    30 days from seed. 8 days since being topped. Have been "trying" to lst lol to try and get more light into the plants' "guts". When the branches get long enough to "shade out" the lower ones I tie it down

    Did you top every branch? I'm just wondering, I've got one four weeks old n I did. I'm curious to see how many bud's I can get.
    Thanks for Roll it up n cab growers, I recycled an old entertainment center and now I've got a three light rotation, according to the grow boss, I can get bud once a month. It won't be a lot, but I'm just trying to grow my own any way.

    No I only topped my main stem so far. But I plan on doing more topping as the plant grows and bushes out some more. And a lot of lst.

    They are really bushing out. It's amazing watching lst work it's magic day by day. Plan on letting them veg another week or two at the rate they're going. My goal is atleast 4 o's a plant lol. Haven't given any nutes yet. They look good so far from the ffof. But will be looking to add some soon

    A little over a month into veg and sadly I think I have my first problem :(. The leaves towards the bottom and some mid way are yellow/green and yellowing more. Any suggestions? Soil is ffof. And they have NOT been giving ANY nutes yet. I think it's a lack of nitrogen. Any temporary nutes I can buy from lowes, Home Depot, wallyworld, TODAY etc until I order some good nutrients
