    Yes I will top them.. I should have done it already but they didnt seem very high yet so I decided to let them grow a bit.. i also seen some of them looking droopy so didnt want to put more stress on them knowing i was transplanting them.. i will wait 2-3 days see if they are catching up and should then top them..

    Here is a picture after the transplant : IMG_3532.JPG
    Overall it went good i had a little issue with the baby twin in the middle but I think she will be fine..

    Following with this.. i started adding nutrient with the water yesterday new growth seems to be doing fine.. ill keep an eye and maybe up the nutrient if I see the plant can take it. They were a bit overwatered because I watered them at transplant (no nutrient) but still wanted to get them girl some nutrients. I also cutted those smaller yellow/brownish leaves.. end up with a bit smaller plant but looking better see the before/after

    So here is my update for today.. i topped / fim or tried to my plants today.. I also cut some of the yellow leaves. I realize there was branching and lots of leaves under the big leaves so I think maybe I had too much light.. so I moved my light higher. Temps and humidity is under control. ill feed them tomorrow morning and hopefully they start shooting in all direction. Because of all the lower branches in 2-3-4 days ill try bend the stem a bit so they can get lights too. The stem is getting big so I need to do it before they wont allow me anymore. I just want to make sure they recover well from topping.

    I added many shots of most if not all of the plant. Some shots from too some from the side and some from the topping/fiming and the last one which is the girls at the end. IMG_3544.JPG IMG_3546.JPG IMG_3548.JPG IMG_3551.JPG IMG_3559.JPG IMG_3560.JPG IMG_3561.JPG IMG_3562.JPG IMG_3563.JPG

    The update for today. After yesterday topping session and feeding this morning GH flora series ( about 1/2 recommended dose) they seem to be very good today compared to yesterday. You can compare last picture from yesterday and today and they are much better (see below).. so hopefully everything keeps going well.. my temps are at 22celcius (72F) at night/lights off and 78-82 during day/lights on. Humidity is between 60-72.. i may lower it a bit so it range more like 55-65.. over 70 seems a bit high but happens mainly at night when lights go off and temp drop.. i didnt notice any water on the wall or anything but id still rather be safer.. I dont seems to have any problem! All in all feeling pretty good about my girls

    -i reposted the picture from yesterday it will be easier to compare if in the same post ;)

    I kept removing some of the big leaves.. leave some more light to the other branches.. i was off today so I fed the girls and I did some LST to them. I bend the main stem on all of them except baby twin.. baby twin is just too small in height.. but has the nicest biggest leaves. I have no more issue all plants are green seems to respond very well to the nute.. next one will be only water and then maybe up the nute a bit as the plant are taking it well.

    Here is a look after the lst session. I used garden wire flexible but resistant.. IMG_3566.JPG

    We are about 30 days from seeds. Im thinking another 30 days of veg. Im in no rush and will only flower once I feel its time for it.

    Everything is still going well ive lowered my lights a little and see how the plant react to it.. LST did help get those lower branches up high.. I already see some good bud site on many of them.. i will probably top them again around wednesday and install a net next weekend. It will just make it easier to train them. Very happy so far

    Here is a shot from today i watered them this morning they needed it and responded well with good growth.

    Here is how it looks like. Please note that I rotate them daily in the same patern all the time but you may not be able to compare directly if you put previous pictures side to side

    And here a more lateral view on some of them

    Day 36
    I fed them close to 100% this morning they are darker green now not much other sign of nutrient burn but still.. (doesnt show much on the picture) so next time ill put ph water only and resume feeding at 75% dose after seems to be my sweet spot for now. I didnt top them again yet but will be done in the next 2 days.

    Day 37

    IMG_3584.JPG

    As mentionned I gave them little water this morning just to reduce the strenght of the nutrients i gave yesterday morning a bit. But they are looking good and healthy

    But now I have couple questions.. lol my goal was to have 4 plants.. but I ended up with 7.. the way they look right now.. should I leave them in those 2 gallons pot and start flower in 2 weeks or should I transplant next weekend into 5 gallons and give them another 2-3 weeks before switching to flower? At 4 plants the transplant was a good idea but with 7 I think if I wait 3 weeks i may have way too much plant (i could be wrong too which is why im asking for advice)

    On a side note I should be topping my plants tonight for the second time (about 10 days from first topping) I will repost once done.. otherwise will be tomorrow morning

    Day 39 adapted my set up a bit

    I added my scrog net its adjustable in height 6 inch square

    I also made a cage for my tent with pipes so the sides dont come too much inside due to negative pressure its working perfectly!

    Nice, and the pipe thickness takes up the tent slack too.

    Only thing i can recommend is to look into getting one or two...even three of those clip on mini fans. Im the cheapest guy here and its even a good investment for me. Lol. I used to have a larger fan on a box like you have, a clip on fan will save you a ton of headaches in the future for dirt cheap. Other than that, great setup u have going on.

    You have no idea it looks so much better! I should have done that a while ago.. it could just be messing with my head but I think light reflection is much better too.. used to be almost yellowish looks much more the real white color.. for what its worth I may be too high haha:eyesmoke:

    Thanks for the feedback! i have 2 clip fan, the osciliating fan and another fan a bit bigger than a clip fan.. ive put the clip fan on my lights heatsink for now.. once I transplant into their 5 gallon smart pot i think ill leave the oscialiting fan under the net/under the canopy and put some clip fan for the top i just feel the clip fan dont push so much air but it may just be the cheap I bought.. maybe 4 of those would work.. i have a good exhaust fan already so air movement is not much of a concern but more cant go wrong really.. air in my tent is sucked out twice every minute..
