I posted somewhere before and got the response that in all likelihood the SUPER SILVER HAZE I was growing on my 2nd attempt at growing, became rootbound in the 3 gallon pot, causing it to flower very early.
This was one of 3 of the Platinum mixpack I germinated on 8-23. about 3 or so weeks ago the plant began to flower but it remained in the 18-6 light tent with its mates. about a week ago I took it out and found a temporary fix of an oversized box lined with foil now with a simple 100 watt CFL softlight on a 12-12 light cycle.
The buds seem fairly dense, especially the main cola, the hairs look pretty brown throughout, perhaps its gone a little too long? I had a bit of an accident with too much flowering fertilizer, burning some leaves, I plucked the bad ones and the plant has recovered a fair amount. it doesn’t have a very heavy smell at all.
This Thursday will mark 8 weeks from germination, its original growmates are due to have their light changed to begin flowering and here is this SSH looking like its ready to be harvested. Since I am such a newbie, I just had to ask… should I continue with the 12-12 cycle longer and let the buds develop or has the plant just run its course and I should harvest sooner rather than later?
Overall, I am learning quite a bit, had a bum T5 light delivered so its on return but I am upgrading to the 4 lamp version. I have started some hydro grow as well as my existing soil grow (Grow 2.0) and damn, that hydro stuff takes off once it takes hold. I am really enjoying the growing, its my new hobby and I find myself spending quite a bit of time either tending it or thinking how I can improve the overall room/grow. Thanks for a lot of the help and good advice I have read in these forums. Its time for me to get active and learn from you masters.
