Looks great. Great color .
Maybe a bit of stretch. How far away are your lights? What type of lights? What size pots? Those look a bit small to me. I use 5 or 7 gallon cloth pots for flower.

LED about 20inches from the top the plants right now. Yeah they started that reaching upwards sometime over night. Store I bought pots at said 5 gallon on them. May just be angel I took the pics.

Yes the picture angle threw me. 5 gal is just fine.
There are lights and then there are lights!! :slight_smile: LED are awesome, but weed needs a lot of light for tight buds. Are your lights grow lights or LED shop lights? I realize I’m answering a question you didn’t ask, but good lights are pricey but totally worth it. When I started out I had cheaper lights and within months ended up buying better more expensive Horticulture Lighting Group (HLG) lights. Great investment.
Happy growing!!! :grinning: :upside_down_face:

They’re grow lights. I am starting to wonder if I should get two more. I was told they may just not be strong enough. I have two in there now. They look like this. 71Hn8S+d6vL.AC_SX522

My HLG lights are variable from 100-320 watts per light. I use 2 to flower a 4x4 or 4x5.5 area. The advantage of this type of light is efficiency. More electricity ends up as light vs. heat. They last a long time also.
I started with smaller “Chinese” lights than yours and found they worked ok in a 2x4 but LEDS started to burn out.

My grow tent is 2x2x4. I am not sure if I need change lights or what.

Your two lights should be fine in that space. 3 plants in that space is pretty crowded. That size tent is best for a single plant really. It all depends on your needs/goals though. 2x2 per plant is optimal. I have done 3 plants in a 2x4 just fine, but it cuts air flow etc so you need to watch out for mildew etc.

I will be moving them into a larger area once it is ready. I had some give me this tent to get started.

They are very beautiful and healthy

Look good, as far as lights @dbrn32 can tell you if you need to supplement or replace your lights.
