cute plant...doing good
Looking great! What's the sativa/indica ratio for that strain? I'm doing a similar scrog with a 90% sativa, and switched to 12/12 when it was about the same size as yours. It easily filled my screen. Right now i have about 300w of cfls, so we're doing very similar things, man.

nice man, your grow's looking sweet! it's a really dense and even canopy. how many days did you veg for? this strain is the opposite - 90% indica so I'm pretty keen to see the difference in growth hey. cheers ringsixty
I had fimmed it after the 3rd node, then taken the bottom 2 branches as clones, which is why it's so branchy-looking there.
Ourkansaw, I'm surprised at how much bigger yours got. Do you think that fimming it made a big difference?
The plant has stretched a little bit but not as much as I expected in the first week. Some new budsites have formed and are pushing up from below the canopy. Some of my leaves have started dying from the bottom up but I think that's normal. They're mostly useless anyway (not receiving any light) so I just chop them off and feed them to the guinea pig which seems to like them. It's drinking a lot of water so I've watered three times over the past 6 days.
Here's a couple photos over the past week or so...

I think the sativa / indica difference accounts for much of the differences in growth rate. Be careful with that watering, it'll grow faster if you let it get real thirsty between waterings. I water about once every 10 days right now, just a real heavy soaking when I do water.
I'll try watering it less and see how it goes, but the soil does seem to dry out down to about a whole middle finger length after about 4 days. The screen is starting to fill out a bit more, the camera from above doesn't even fit everything in anymore and some flowers are definitely starting to emerge. The leaves below are looking sicker and I'm not sure what's going on, probably some kind of nutrient deficiency but there's not much I can do because of the controlled slow release fertilizer in the soil. There are a couple of photos of two of the sickest leaves that I cut off. Other than that, the top looks great, really green and healthy looking.
