Wedding Cake First Grow

I planted some wedding cake seeds about 2 weeks ago, everything is going well with them. Decent growth. I keep my ph between 6.2 and 6.8, generally rotate high to low between waterings. I am using parfactworks 2-1000 watt fixtures, both are actually really good, I am actually surprised. Anyways, I'll try to post a pic of where I am at, and the earlier photos I have. Started this a little late. I am using technaflora recipe for success, along with silicac acid. Let me know what you think, again, first grow. Oh, I pinched the top to bush out the plant, I'd like to try out s.o.g or something

Looking good so far! How much space do you have to work with?
As of right now I'm only using a makeshift tent, but I technically have my entire basement, but I have them in a roughly 3x6x8 setup, running both lights about 40 inches high from the top of canopy. They definitely stayed shorter than I would have liked, I think I pinched too early.

So I guess for anyone peeking through here, how long does it take on average from personal experience, for your plants to get about a foot tall? I know I pinched mine, but it has been short since it popped open, and I'm having a hard time trying to get them to stretch out. I guess I forgot to mention that the seeds I planted were actually out of a bag of wedding cake I received, so they are not feminized. Hopefully it ends up female.

Something is going right I think,seems to be steady daily growth as there should be. Still same pattern as the beginning of the journal. I've never wrote one before, so idk how informative it is..

Foliar fed last night. The only reason I'm not sharing much about the other plants is I was not ready when I put them in the dirt, I had some cheap stuff, once I planted them I ran up and picked up a bag of great lakes water only soil by the Detroit nutrient company, it is local, a few hours away anyways. But they were all planted the same time, the others took of rather slow and stunted, so they are just there to see what happens, no crop expected from them. The soil makes a world of difference when it's designed specifically for growing mj. I didn't think it would so much.

I looked back on my calendar, I was wrong about the 2 weeks, they are 3 weeks today, they shot up as a seedling, and I pinched them at the 4th node I believe

Did some clipping on some lowers, others are coming along okay too. The one bucket I planted a seed in, it didn't come up after a week, so I threw another in, the second one came up, then the first popped up a fer days later

Planning on transplanting to 7 gallon pots, what's everyone's thoughts on bucket size to plant size ratio? Just wondering how long I can keep em in the 10 inch 2.5 gallon pots before I have any issues
