    If you feel they are not ready, then they aren't, you're the farmer. 3-4 oz per plant is my goal too, haven't reached it yet, but journey is fun for sure!

    You should plan for a 2.5x grow for flower if you haven't grown that strain multiple times. Some strains go for 3.5x.

    It's gonna be a tight fit in there if you want theses plants pulling some serious weight. Not the end of the world. But I'd give them a couple more weeks myself if it were me. Spend the time mainlining and training those girls for a little bit of control

    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

    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

    It looks that way. Time to start a veg feeding regiment

    Just a dash of N deficiency. Totally normal, up pot her into a larger pot with fresh soil, or start a liquid feeding regiment like Rollin it up too was suggesting.

    Looking great otherwise!

    Just a dash?!?!?! Well that's good to hear I guess. I'm over here about to have a heart attack... Got some Alaska fish emulsion 5-1-1. Added 2 tsp to a gal of water. Was pissed off because I had already watered them for the day before I mixed the nutes... gave about 1/3 of the nute water to each plant.

    Ahaha, yeah...as a new grower, you are gonna get that feeling a lot.

    But it will fade over time as you start to recognize problems you have squashed in the past, and eventually it will just become second nature to fix things right as they arise and nip them in the bud. (Pun intended)

    Glad I only have to use the Alaska fish once until my fox farm trio nutes arrive. The shit STINKS lmao. NOBODY warned me lol. Smell aside it looks like the little dose I gave them is doing "something"

    About a week since my last pic update. The yellowing and falling off of the leaves seems to have slowed down/stopped/or kept to the bottom of the plants. Got nutes in. And also ph up and down and ph chemical tester. My ph was a little off. It was sitting around 7-7.1. Now I down it to about 6-6.5 after nutes are mixed in. Gave them about a dose and a half of that over the last two waterings. Was thinking of giving plain water next watering in order to avoid nute burn but they seem to be flourishing and taking them well. Gonna wait about another week week and a half before I hit the switch. I want more of that robust inner growth to explode. And all it seems to need at this point is a little time. Hell at the rate that it's going it might just be a couple friggin days lol.

    Been a week since last upload. They are about 7 weeks from seed now. Still some slight yellowing towards the bottoms of my plants. It's not as aggressive as it was about a week ago. Other than that they seem to be ok. They are growing vigorously since starting the nutes. PLENTY of bud sites. O yea 2 of them are already showing pistols. I know that since they are fem seeds it doesn't matter but it was good seeing it as a first timer so I know what to look for in the future. Thinking of hitting the switch in a few days. My lazy butt has yet to hook up my fan and filter and ducting lol for odor Control. They already have a WONDERFUL 'planty' smell to them can't wait to TASTE them and have had it for a while now. It's mild and only really noticeable when you open the door

    It's been a while riu. I have been extremely busy and got sick a few weeks ago but I'm still at it. Girls are 6 weeks into flowering. Buds look good and smell AMAZING. Like a new cotton candy flavor. Can't wait to taste them!!! Quick updates. Ordered a 6 in phresh filter to go along with my 6 in fan and let me tell you that thing is AMAZING lol. No smell whatsoever outside of the room. A "small" hint of it by the door but nothing alarming. Around 3 weeks ago I was sick a few days and was inconsistent with my upkeep of my garden. They went without water and food for about 2-3 days and when I got better and looked at them they were all laying over. Yellow and brown leaves everywhere. 1/3-2/3 of the bottom was wilting away. I started tying them up and resumed proper watering and feeding. My feeding schedule is feed, skip a day, water, skip a day, feed, etc etc. Yellowing and browning continued. Mostly at the bottom but also on the tops. Buds still look to be forming well imo but I'm wondering if it could have been better. After some "late" reading I decided to check my runoff ph and it was @ 5.8. So I'm assuming the problem has been nute lockout (no potassium). Did a "mini" flush (3x water than normal) with regular water that I ph'ed to 7. Brought ph up to 6. I was watering with water with a ph of 6.5-6.6. Now I water with water with a ph of 7.5 and it is slowing bringing the ph up. Will be getting a loupe in the next few days to look at the trichs. I think I vegged them for too long lol as they are about 5-5 1/2 feet tall
