Picture of plants as of today 04/16/2020
Any feed back is welcomed. I would also like to know how soon should I start pruning and "how do I prune if at all.
At this point should I be doing anything else to my plants or sit back for awhile. Also I have my lights on 24/7 should i cut back on lights. Haven’t seen anything real clear on that at this stage of growth?
Lights at 18/6 now would be good. Maybe FIM/top them soon.
Good to see you start journal. Set to watch. I didn’t see a strain listed or if they’re autos or photo period. Personally I like to let my girls get a little more size before I do any pruning, trimming or training. You just have to decide what type of training you want to do, if any at all. Like @Member420 pointed out you can set lights at 18/6 and be fine.
I hate see people want to chop their small plant, let it grow some.
They are White Widow Fem. Thank you. @Bulldognuts need all the help I can get.
Thank you that is what I have them set at now @Member420 very helpful information thank you.
I know it’s hard when they’re little, I just burned my seedling trying to get it to hurry-up. I don’t really prune mine other than to FIM it till 1-2 week or flower
Sorry what does FIM/top mean?
Nube Question after you cut the buds for drying, what do you do with the rest of the plant. Can it continue to grow and create more buds?
No it’s trash… technically you can & leave a couple buds in it but then you gutta reveg it and it’s better to start over… Fim is topping it sloppy basically… LoL
You see your 2000 w lights are 400 actual watts… keep.bith them switches on too
Topping will stunt it FIMing wont
Starting to see signs of discoloration of some of the leaves. What do you think.
With it being on the tips, I’d say you are getting a little bit of nute burn. I don’t believe it will be a problem unless it starts spreading. Gotta remember being in MG soil everytime you water it can blast your plants with time released nutrients.
Here are the most recent pictures of my plants.
PH is 6.7 Temp. 75. I started watering them from the bottom and giving them 24/7 lights hoping that will allow it to digest the nutrients better. So far it appears to be working on the bottom 2. The top plant witch is the largest of the three appears to be leveling out some, the new growth is coming in greener than it was. My question is, should I be doing anything else? Or should I stop what I am doing?
