Critical Purple Day 130

Hi guys I am raising this Critical purple and this one 130 days old. I see other owners have already chopping it off by day 120. So, i don’t know what’s wrong with her. But anyways the first picture shows y largest flower. Can anyone tell me how long i will have to wait so I am actually able to smoke it. In addition the flowers doesnt have much smell either.

  1. Critical Purple Auto- got it from grower choice seed
  2. Soil-> First it was mircale pro mixed with fertilizers. Then i put on outdoor land so it has a lot of natural soil. Then pick up a weeks ago from out door. Because snow is coming this week here in Canada.
  3. pot size 3 gallon first 40-50 days. Then out door regular land where it was growing fast and strong. Now Currently its on a 5 gallon pot (12.1 inch)
    4)6.5-7. I use miracle pro plant food. lowers my regular tap water ph of 8 to like 6.5 sometimes 5.5
    5)Current I light it on the day using my 30 W grow light. Before it was going on sun when was outdoor it mostly lived under sun.
  4. Inside my home I have central Ac system where the it is 74 Farenheit all around the house
  5. No idea about humidity but i have a fan then runs throw solar on the plant strong wind.
  6. current central ac so my house alwayls staying at 74F and i really havent check the humidity.
  7. no Co2

Do you have it on a 12/12 light cycle?

30w light will not perform well. Miracle grow nutes are not cannibis friendly.


It seems like something is stopping them from going into full flower. At this point they should be getting 12 hours of light and 12 hours of as dark as you can get it. Although miracle grow is not right for cannabis, it would not stop flowering. Hang in there…we are all learning.

:point_up_2: this is the culprit. 30 watts would get the plant through the seedling and some early veg but to flower any decent buds you’ll need to put her under a stronger light :love_you_gesture:


Any light recommendations that i should get?

I am not a light expert…but there are many on here. This is a thread that talks about inexpensive and effective lights. Good Luck!

What size space are you planning to light up ?
Growers can help with a quality light for the space you plan to use. :v:

Four GDPurp’s transplanted to 5 gl grow bags. I dont have a tent but two sides surrounded by a foil faced styrofoam sheet. Approximate size is 5 ft long by about 2 ft wide plants are only about 2 ft tall.
My question is can I just supplement the garage light with a red spectrum light when they begin to flower or do I need to purchase a grow light. I should add I’m retired so on a limited budget !
Any ideas or help is appreciated!!
TIA !!

For one plant you can get by with 100-150 watts of quality LED. The HLG Patriot 150 would probably do a great job. As things are right now your plant doesn’t have enough energy to complete it’s grow cycle. I suspected it was not getting enough light or had light schedule issues but a support ticket gives us all the info we need.

If you ever plan on getting a grow tent/room or growing more than one plant you may as well bite the bullet and get a bigger light. You need minimum of 30 watts per square foot of tent or grow area. You’ll do much better with 40 watts per square foot. Some people even use 50 or more watts per sq ft. I’m around 43 with an HLG 350R in a 2x4.


I’m with @Outlaw :point_up: for one plant the HLG 150 patriot would be a good choice . I like to allow a 2x2 space for each plant. If you continue to grow 5 plants at a time you will need to efficiently light a 4x4 space. Shooting from the hip without doing any price shopping about 600 to700 bucks on lights for a 4x4 space. Watch for end of the year sales. Hope that helps good luck. :v:

Thanks all who gave input !
I found a hydroponic store about 40 miles away I will check out next week
