    Day 44
    They look a little droopy because they are thirsty so ive gave them more water i dont like watering late in the day, i prefer early morning but they needed it so i gave it to them. I put about 20-25% strenght nutrients.

    Also.. i loved my osciliating but it died.. lol it was no high end anyway it was a bit hot so maybe something burned inside ill look into it see if I can fix it but I also bought 3x 6inch clip fan + put back the other 10inch fan i had.. thats plenty already with the intake and exhaust fan lol.. everything is running 24/7.. so here is the picture after setting up the new fans

    I wouldn’t worry about filling space, you’re going to want a bigger tent after week 2 of the stretch bongsmilie

    My widow has gone from 3" to 10" since the flip

    Day 48 yesterday I didnt get time to cut the two last girls so I did it tonight (the 2 in back left and middle). The 4 I had done are already picking up very well. Very good green color so everything seems to be running well.. will leave few days to the 2 i just cut to recover

    Oh well.. sounds like my brain just started working on day 49 of my grow :clap: lol.. i will explain..

    I was looking to switch to 12-12 and was trying to pick the best time in the day for my schedule. They were currently lights on from 7am to 11pm.. when I switch to 12-12 I Think Ill do 7pm to 7am.. or maybe 8pm-8am.. anyway all that to say I just realized I was running on a 16-8 schedule and not 18/6.. thats really my bad as I didnt count the hours correctly initially.. forced to say it doesnt seem like it impacted my plant much but thought id share this finding almost 50 days in my grow. Girls still managed to get plenty of lights as im using my light at full power but close to 36inch from canopy. Picture will follow later today

    Looks very good. I am liking those samsung boards!

    16-8 will hurt nothing. I had some vegging at 18-6 and changed it to 12 12 but it was really 14 10 because i didnt have my glasses on. Wow did they get big. They vegged even longer than expected. :D

    The hours you run it really depend on where you live. Where i live it is best to time it for offpeak time for hydro costs. BUT I do like to pop in and check in the morning and who wants to get up at 6 am to do that. So I go 9 to 9 so i have some time either side to admire them and breath co2 everywhere (the co2 was a joke).

    Exactly me cost for hydro is good 0.09$/kw so im not worried about that so its less than 1$/day in electricity with my current 520w set up.. and I wake up just before 7 for work so I have time to take a shower amd look/water them before I leave.. but im out of the house for about 11h which is why im thinking of switching to night time for the 12/12.. anyway whatever fits best my schedule.. happy I didnt screw it up with the hours tho lol maybe at 18/6 I would have gotten a bit more faster growth who knows.. next time I will do 18/6 lol thanks for stopping by. For a first grow its looking good and hope it will show when comes harvest.. time will tell. Cant wait to smoke my own.. will for sure taste better just because the time I spent growing these lol next grow I will add a second 4x4 tent (maybe 5x5) and will try to add a clone/veg room so that will allow me to save from buying seeds and lower the whole process by a few weeks..
