Day 34, the weight gain begins. Should look like photogenic colas in about a week.
Beautiful work man, I've been running 3x 2ft. 24w HO T5s for a good bit of my seedling/veg and then I added a VS300 which really seems to be doing well so I decided to buy another, it should be delivered today. I was thinking about a perpetual grow with perhaps the t5s for clones and both 300w in flowering w/ supplemental lighting (I have cool white A21's). I have 10 sexless plants but I should start flowering next week and ones that don't make it to flower will continue to trim/train, this is my first grow, I hope it turns out as well as yours.
Never thought I would hear somebody say that about my setup,6 months ago this all seemed way too complicated.
Good luck dude!
Lights out day 34 update
This thing is starting to stink, very much an earthy, spicy aroma to it.
I personally would strip of some of the fan leaves covering the lower half of the plant. Let some light get down there along with a nice steady breeze and they will thank you for it. Check my grow if you want to see if it's something that will help the yield and quality some more.
I did 2 defoliations in week 3 and the plant grew back all the fan leaves in 3 days. I'm going to wait until week 7 before I decide to do another one.
^^ I took off some of the larger fan leaves, I was reading about somebody having mould issues and it scared me into it.
End of week 5, lots of fattening this week but still have a long way to go, at least another 3 weeks.
White widow clone update, all 3 are nice and healthy a few days after defoliation and topping to keep as small as possible before going in the flowering tent for my next grow mid May
Learning more about manifolding, might give it a go
Day 36 - getting fatter all over the plant (but never fast enough ) and lightly touching the bud leaves and unbelievable sweet weed smell in response
A rare outing into natural light
Lights out day 36
Defoliated a little on top and removed some of the lower stuff, changed the res.
Be careful doing that.. I wouldn't expose them to to much direct sunlight for to long.. it may burn the hell out of it.
Never the less, your plant looks good.. nice job so far.
Don't worry, just my ceiling light (5w LED) while I cleaned my tent and changed the reservoir.
Still at least 3 weeks left but looking good so far.
I know the plant still has a few weeks to fatten up but a lot of those buds in the middle of the plant are pretty much made of air compared to the original 6 colas from the topping that are hard as rocks. Is it worth sacrificing some of the smaller ones to redirect energy to the big ones?
I think much earlier / end of veg could have been worth it.. at this point youre just risking to lower your potential yield by stressing the plant and removing some bud sites..
And just to show that there is definitely a way to go, good bud development but still needs to fatten significantly.
nice looking plant
looks well I'l be following for updates ✌
Clones are looking good, keeping them on the windowsill seems to be slowing them down. All 3 have been topped, might top again and do the mainline thing and end up with 18 tops across 3 plants in the tent and keep them super clean.
As soon as these girls are ready to go into the tent they will be transplanted to bigger pots and flipped. Very happy with how these look.
Scrog the next one so the tops finish flowering at about 12inches and your yield will increase a lot and give all the buds what they need even light.
