First full watering to a hair of runoff, 5ml/gal calmag.
1 & 3 have nice fat leaves, 2 & 4 have a little thinner leaves, 5 is still the runt but maybe the 1g pot helped keep it lagging the others.
1 & 3 are ~ an inch shorter than 2 & 4 #2 is an inch above 4, not sure why that one wants to stretch more than the others.
I still think #5 is going outside but maybe #2 outside and keeping a short 1, 3, 5 and a medium 4 would end up a more even canopy… but maybe it’s too soon to tell and a crap shoot? I’ll give them more time and see how they go.
Topping in a few days.
Found a solution to the long HLG cables while still being able to only adjust 2 hangers instead of 4. Zip ties on each side of the carabineer. May put a bit of tape over them to make them more secure but they don’t move as is.
How large do you like your plants?
Based on that space, and rapid growth, I would flip them in about 2 more weeks.
I like to make sure the canopy is full, so I allow the mid canopy to grow together, then defoliate underneath to keep larf down.
Entirely up to you, and everyone has a different grow style. I like larger plants, with full canopy.
Getting a certain size allows for a little bit more maturity. Just my personal grow style. Anything step you take from here won’t be wrong, just different.
Thanx for the reply, to answer the 1st question… I don’t know lol. Haven’t ever tried to cram a tent full of plants.
Grew decades ago under HPS in a back yard shed with a partitioned off area and plenty of space. Last grow that you and the rest of the gang helped with was my 1st venture into a small grow space with 1 plant that left a lot of light hitting the ground in the corners.
I’ll give them a couple more weeks and check back in, thanx again!
So now I have a 2nd set of 2x6’s under the shorter plants and the taller ones canopy is still well above the shorties.
Shorties look like an indica strain, taller ones look like a sativa strain to me. This seems to be a little more than just phenotype thing. If they are sativa, I’ll have to ditch them because I dry in the tent and the sativa will be at least a week behind to harvest… and I’ll be running out of height for the tall ones soon
Do you think ILGM could have screwed up and mixed a couple sativa seeds in my OG mix pack?
More likely to be a different phenotype. It is still a hybrid, and could get shorter genetics.
My Fire OG is super stretchy in flower, marketing says it’s indica dominant, but when in flowering, genetics say otherwise.
