Ya you def left em in veg a bit too long for that box lol. My cfls are on a timer, same timer I had the led on, just kinda took that out to put in the cfls, still kinda nervous I might bleach the buds cuz the colas are starting to get fat n tall. Luckily only a couple more weeks till I can start cutting some of the buds n letting them dry. With this box I basically calculated you gotta do the flip when they're 12 inches tall... Which kinda sucks cuz they won't grow to there full potential, but harvests will be quicker. I have 2 gold leafs in an extra res in a homemade veg spot that I might only be able to put in the box for a couple weeks before I have to flip, they're already probably 5-6 inches tall. Might top em just to slow the growth to give these bag seeds an extra week or two to finish lol. N hermies are made when the plant is stressed a bunch, so really it doesn't matter if it's a fem, auto or bag seed really, you stress em to much they might flip on you. But honestly for your first grow if you can just get some bud out of it I'd call it a win. You learned a bunch n you will get a lil bud to sample.
