    if you're 3x days into veg and wondering...
    prolly - unless your room is ENORMOUS and you have a LOT of lights

    Yep, Those lower shoots don't produce much. You are much better off without the suckers.

    Something is wrong if you are 5 weeks into flowering and they still look like that.

    okay... - i see that you're elite and all...

    i agree - they are BEAUTIFUL plants...

    those are NOT flowering... not 1 week, let alone nearly 5...

    those may well be 5 weeks of veg after transplant, but those are not flowering plants

    beautiful and healthy, yes - flowering, no

    you need to give those plants 12 hours of TOTAL DARKNESS per day from now until the end of time

    you'll know they're getting ready to actually push flowers when the pistils(little white hairs) start pushing out all over the place
    your plant will begin making these skinny little leaves right on top of each other
    you'll have an EXPLOSIVE burst of stem and leaf growth as your plant makes a final push toward a high place to make its last stand

    those plants aren't flowering
    they are very pretty though and 18 of those under a single light?... you're gonna wanna do a little more severe training, though it can absolutely be done

    They definitely look like they are flowering somewhat. There are little bunches of pistils at the nodes just not many.

    And yes a light leak could very well be your problem. When the plants are in the dark period it should be completely dark. Go inside your flowering room with the lights off and see if there is light coming through somewhere.

    i moved my 8in inline fan on top so now there is no more light leak do u think this light leak is going to make alonger flowering time

    Yeah i would probably only count it to be in week one of flower from now. I don't know the flowering period on the strain but if it is a 8 week flower strain, you have another 7 weeks to go.. On a good note they look very healthy and at least we found the problem. Soon you should see some nice buddage :)
