    In my experience, light will be your greatest factor. Try not to skimp on lights, you'll save in the long run.

    push the light as close as you can without hurting the plants. Get a thermo and make sure it stays below 80 at the tops of the plants and be prepared to move them up as they grow. Move them down as slowly as an inch a day to reduce stress

    Light my friend, lots of it. Genetics also plays a part as some are more dense than others. But yeah, good intense light and errrything else combined.

    Yup, thats plenty of light for 4 plants. What size sun hut do you have?

    Cha Ching is used during the last weeks of flowering to make your buds all nice and sticky :hump: I haven't used it but have researched the product. I use something called Gravity from Humboldt - Hott Stuff :fire:
