2 x 4 x 8 grow tent sitting on 1" Styrofoam, ventilated
LED grow light, supposed to be equal to 400 hps. currently just using "growth" switch. 24" above plants
Will be going into 5gal fabric pots
Popular nutrient rich soil (will be adding perlite)
Seed - Feminized Cali OG Kush (1) and Green crack (1) I also tried 2 seeds of Durban poison and couldn't get them going, so just running with the 2 plants. I'll have to make big ones.
Three weeks since they popped out of the soil.
Temp 17/lights off, 22 light/on (18/6 cycle)
Humidity low
watering every 3 days.

How long till transplant?

Thanx

Oh and turn both switches on, veg and bloom. It’s best to turn both on to give plants a broader spectrum and they have been tests done showing that they grow a lot better with both switches. It’s alright to just use veg switch when their seedlings but after they get 15-20 days old full power all the way lol.✌

I’m gonna sub up and follow along if you don’t mind. Plants looks pretty good, I would go ahead and transplant them and they should take off.✌
Thanx, They were very ready for transplant, the roots were wrapped around a lot. I'm sure they'll enjoy their new home. both lights now on, still at 24"

The girls have now been transplanted for a week. It's been 28 days since they broke ground. Light is about 22 inches above the plants. The one on the left has mutant type lower leaves, and stock is very red since it broke ground...doesn't show in the pics really, but really shows under the light. That one is Cali OG.

Hi Guys, The girls are about 5 1/2 weeks old now. I think I need some help. The CaliOG girl on the left, has always been a little different. The branches are so small and very covered by shade leaves they don't even look right, frail probably sun starved leaves. The green crack has slight issues at tips of some leaves, maybe nutrient burn?? I have not yet added anything but water, soil is supposed to be rich though. Any thoughts?

I normally start adding nutrients to my soil when my girls start showing deficiencies. An average rule of thumb for soil is after 30days from sprouting. You could start now if you want just remember to start low and slowly work your way up. I start at 1/4 of the recommended dose on the bottle, and slowly work my way up to 1/2-3/4 strength max. Your ladies are looking great btw....keep it up!!

Looking amazing bro, you can switch to flower when ever you want to now. Just remember your plants will atleast double their current size in flower. The higher your light the more they will stretch up to reach it.

Hi Everyone, Should I do some trimming of the big leaves? I'm at day 21 of 12/12. Had hoped to get more height out of these, but they do fill the tent to the extent of my light, scary cause I plan on 3 next time but will have to add light. There are a lot of bud sights covered by the thick foliage and wonder if I should trim to get them more light.

Week 6. wasn't happy with the coverage my light was providing, limited spread (and it's only 2 plant) so I added a COB, this seems to penetrate deeper. Plants fill the tent fairly well, wish they would have got taller. Extreme dense bush, think I'll do ok. plants are supposed to be 10 week flower time. thoughts, suggestions?
Thanx

They look good. It's not recommended to defol during flower. Typically you do that a week before before flip, which lets them recover a bit before going into flower.
For now just tuck the leaves that are blocking any bud sites.
