12/12 from seed. It is day 3 and the growth is slow so far. Stretched alot at first, but i think it is fine now.

Growth was really good today. Only problem is the pot was off center from the lights, so it stretched sideways. I repositioned it, but the lights are off. Must be the upgrade of lights. Might try adding another 3 tomorrow.

Oh, and the temps were around 80F with the 69w's, but before with the 14 it was light 72. So, i am going to have to get a fan.

Fan is good to have for circulation and to help cool but you shouldn't worry too too much about 80 degrees. 75-85 is fine with proper ventilation and circulation.

The first picture is the clone i got rid of a few days ago. The cloning was going well. I kept it alive for 3-4 untill i decided to pull it. My camera wouldn't focus, but you can see all the balls. Today is the start of Day 4 for the seedling. The growth isn't quite what i want, but it seems like it is starting to move. I moved the lights over to get a clearer picture, I re-adjusted them and hopefully it will stretch straight throughout the day. Any chance i could try to flower it in that little pot?

I was reading your journal last night going through most of the pages.
Do you know the PH of your water? Have you considered getting rid of the Miracle Gro soil?
You barely have any healthy growth at all, by this time you should have a tree!

I don't have a pH tester but i don't think it is the problem. The outdoor plants are getting mostly rainwater except when i feed with nutrients. The growth on the outdoors isn't that bad, but yes, they should be atleast 3 feet. They are all about 12-18" now. I'm hoping that by mid August they get to around 3'. I'm aiming for 2oz per plant which should be easy.

Checked up on my ladies outside. The one i topped now has 4 bud sites. It seems that it never returned to veg, and that the pistils are getting bigger. Is it possible it will continue to flower outdoors? It's not extremely sunny here and we get around 14/10. Can a plant flower in 14/10

Hey man, been lurking your grow long enough I prolly should have some input. Especially cause it was your grow that motivated me to start growing(my plants are 2 1/2 weeks behind yours). So is your 14/10 14hrs direct sunlight? Cause I know my veggies in DWC outside do better with about 10-12 hours full sun as opposed to 18 (summer here), with direct sun all day they got pretty mashed up. So if your worried about photo period then find a spot outside that only gets sun for 12 hours ie put it on the east side of a structure if your sun rises west and west if east,just figure out how high your structure needs to be to cut 2 hours of sun. problem solved. Also I think you were to far into flowering to go back. The plant has already changed its chemistry to gear towards budding.
