LA Diva Day 28: AK-47, OG#18, and Blue Cheese seedlings

So my La Diva is on day 28 now. It still hasn't shown any pistils to let me know that it's started to flower yet. I've had it under the 400w metal hylide 24 hours a day. I just switched the hours back to 20/4 starting tonight. I think it will be easier on my equipment and I juyst personally think a little darkness helps the plants. The La Diva is starting to grow like it's about to start flowering though if you know what I mean. The new growth just looks different to how it did in the past. I will probably switch to the HPS in a week or so I guess. I started 3 feminized seeds last week or so. I went with a Serious AK-47, Reserva Privada OG #18, and Barney's Blue Cheese. I went a head and transplanted the AK-47 and OG #18 into their final pots because they had stretched a little bit, and I wanted to bury the stem some so it wasn't so stretched out. In the process of transplanting I just about lost my AK-47 because the whole rootball didn't come out of the small pot that I started it in. It completely fell apart, but it looks like I didn't damage it and seems to be alright. Thank goodness because I was only able to get 1 single from Attitude because they are stingy with the single AK-47's for some reason. I was just happy that it germinated, but I haven't ever fucked up transplanting before. I handled it like a pro though. I left the Blue Cheese in the started pot for now, since it was 2 days later on popping out of the soil. Plus it isn't stretching like the AK-47 and OG #18 did. I normally don't transplant so soon, but like I said they had stretched a little to much for my liking. It looks like these 3 will have to mainly be vegged under a HPS. I don't know how much that will affect my plants in the end, but I have seen plenty of good results from growers who strictly use HPS throughout their whole grow. I have to say that I am highly anticipating trying out these strains. They seem to be some of the best strains out there from what I have heard, so I want to try them out for myself. I got the carbon filter/fan unit running now. I turned it on today, because this was the 1st day that I could smell anything that smelled like plants growing. I hope that this damn thing works. It seems to have some pretty good suction going on, so I am optimistic that it will serve its purpose. I will grow the 3 seedlings out until they are about 14-18 inches tall then I will flip to 12/12. I imagine that will take about 5 weeks to get them to that height. Hopefully by that time my La Diva will be completely finished and ready to harvest. That is the master plan anyway. So here are a few pics that I took today. Please feel free to comment. People rarely do though for some reason. Anyways please enjoy!
La Diva is up front and on day 28. The AK-47 is in the pot on the left, and the OG #18 is in the pot on the right. The Blue Cheese is in the small pot sitting on top of the pot with the OG #18 in it.
