Hate to tell you this but my honest opinion is that yours wont. They look too mature to swell at this point in my opinion. Most of the pistils are curled or brown already. Either that is a very light yield strain or something in the grow was out of whack slowing bud development. It is my opinion that with that plant, what you see is about what you'll get. Looks like there is a possibility there was too much nitrogen which can block out important nutrients needed for bud development. too much N in the flower stage will prevent your plants from forming buds properly, resulting in lower yields, less potency and possibly inferior buds.

looks to me that it's been starved of light
Well if 11 100watt cfl bulbs that are 2700k and 6500k each bulb is also 1600 lumens if thats not enough light in a 2x4x6ft isnt enough light sitting close as possible to plants that it can be without burning the. I dont no what is enough light

Don't know about cfl lights but your buds are lacking from something. If they revegged than you definitely stunted your growth. You won't have much of a harvest at this point. Enjoy what you get and chalk it up to learning.

So you come here asking for help on your very first grow, I repeat, your very first grow and you get news that you don't like because you're grow did not go as you thought it would and you want to tell me blah blah blah there's nothing wrong blah blah blah LOL. Those are not 100 watt CFLs for starters they are 100w equivalent which are actually 23 watt CFLs! And no,11 of those in a 2 by 4 tent is nowhere near enough. That is only 30 watts per square foot and CFL is weak to top it off. You need to double your amount of CFLs to be in the ballpark. The par that comes off of CFLs is very weak and will not penetrate anyting. If you're wanting to run 23 watt CFLs in a 2ft by 4ft tent you better have at least 20 of them and all within 2 to 3 in from the plant. And yes, those buds are fairly mature and the pistils are showing signs of age so you can" blah blah blah" all you would like but everything in my response was 100% correct. You will not get very far on this forum asking experienced Growers for help and then snapping when you don't like the response you get. It's your first grow and it can only get better from there. Too much nitrogen kills bud development, reveg kills bud development and 11 cfls in a 2x4 tent guarantee weak bud development end of story.

In a small tote you may.. may have been able to flower a very small plant with the cfl only reason saying is people use the led shop lights or similar too for vegging an clones but I dont think its be too significant for flowering an bro trust an believe at least 80% of people on here aren't gonna steer you wrong for the sake of cannabis best luck with your grow man dont give up first plants are never prize winning plants my first plant I grew at 15 was only a quarter wet so it's a learning process
