I have gotten a ton of info here and had a number of my questions answered - Growth has been incredible, inside a small lightbox using FoxFarm's full nut treatment.

I supposedly bought GG which had a ton of bagseed. BUT it was an incredible smoke regardless, so I figured, if grown well, imagine what it could be... So, I tried my hand.

I am 7.5 weeks from germination and 1.5 week into 12/12. Just starting with some baby bud!

Sorry for color of most pics, it's under a light

Thanks Bman - The biggest issue I am going to have is the size of the tent - It's only 4' tall and they are going to get close to the roof, I have already moved the light as high as it can go and they are trained down using SOG but geting strong/robust enough to push the netting. Ah well... Live and learn on these things I guess, but it's been fun so far.

For anyone reading this, the biggest challenge I have is that I am colorblind, that makes pH balancing the water tough as well as watching leaf color... Interesting challenge but comes up a lot in this

Congrats so far, looking good! I was skeptical at first seeing multiple plants in the containers, but you are making it work! One suggestion though on the pH... a digital meter that you can easily see?

You know, sometimes the simplest Solutions are the quickest overlooked. I bought a digital meter for the soil, but I didn't even think about getting one for the water. LOL. I think I'm picking one up today. As far as the multiple plants per pot I read a ton of different articles about competition for resources Etc. I will tell you, if I had to do it again, I don't think I would do multiple plants per pot, but not because of the reasons everybody says. As long as I'm giving them nutrition they seem to do great , the biggest issue I see is too dense of foliage in too small of a space at the canopy, if I had a larger grow box or a grow room, I think multiple plants in a 5-gallon container would be no problem at all

I think it’s looks really good regardless of the height, I had a similar issue this

A bit tall but still looking awesome!! I think I’m gonna have the same issue if mine keep growing cause my tent is only small too and I didn’t use netting or anything
Did you take off all the excess leaves??
How do you find humidity ?

I did lollipop the bottom of them and took of any offshoot that had poor looking growth that definitely wasn't going to flower. My humidity at the top of the tent is always around 40% and temp is always around 78
