First Time Grow! (2nd Entry)

So its been about a month since my last journal update, a lot has happened since. These pictures give the basic breakdown of the different stages the plants have gone through, as well of my grow methods.
7.) 5 weeks since start! 2 Clones from each large plant (6 total). Clones have been in small aeroponics system for ~4 days And no new root formation yet... Considering moving them to a new "humidity" dome system on a separate 24 hour light cycle.
8.) Inside specs of the New Home Made aeroponics system I converted to. Two 250 gallon per hour pumps connected to an 8 nozzle spray unit. One air pump connected to two AirStones - constantly oxygenating the nutrient rich water. Perfect medicinal marijuana habitat!
9.) 1 month & 12 days since start. Biggest plant is 34" (what the hell), the other two big plants are nearly 30" themselves. Aeroponics FTW!! Waiting for the clones to show us the plant sex... so that the male plants can be thrown out
10.) 1 month & 12 days Since start. About 8-10 days into cloning. Decided to try a different cloning approach, two fluorescent lights in a humidity dome on a heat mat for root stimulation.
I ended up taking them out because of slow growth.
11.) ~1month 21 days since the start. Cloning for about 2 weeks.. This little guy didn't make it it. Damage caused by bad nutrient balance, in proper PH level, and temperature fluctuations.
(2nd picture) Root formation (close up)! It's hard to find a good picture of the root formation of a clone, this should fix that
12.) 1month 28days since start. We finally decided to just move the big plants straight into the flowering room, since the clones weren't doing well. 1 week in flowering room (12 / 12 hour light cycle). Two of these plants are literally 46 INCHES tall.. What the HELL
*Watching close for any male plants so that they can be removed from the room before they have a chance to pollinate the others.
13.) I'm pretty sure the first one is a male (no hairs). The second one is most likely a female (two small hairs emerging).
