    I always keep the same light cycle and the plan is to put 1 plant into flower every 2 weeks so that I never have more than 6 in flower. My veg is 24 hour lights to keep them short and bushy. I have Skywalker just about done, girl scout and blue widow are 4 weeks into flower, lemon skunk is 3 weeks in. Rest are in veg. I also have a few clones of each

    Try to do a few plants at a time. To me it's not worth growing just one.

    So you go about 650 Watts runnin to them? Right now I got about 22,000+ lumens with all my lights and about... 250-350 Watts of CFLs and a full spectrum led. I want a bigger light just don’t know how much it will effect yield from what I got

    I also have 4 cfl's for side lighting on the smaller plants. Higher lumen cfl are for veg, lower lumens for flower. My cfl's give off a redish light. A little over 700 watts total. I only use 2 45 watt full spectrum led for veg

    So if I upgrade from cfl to like. 350 watt led and take some cfls down would I pull the same yeild or get a little more you think? I’m just not a fan of led, And I just feel like the cfl works for me... or maybe just lucky. C382C527-0034-46C8-B9CA-75C38D676CA1.jpeg I just replanted her yesterday to a 4 gal. She lovin it m. Today day 25 in veg.

    Most led lights give 2 feet of light where cfl's have to be almost right on the plant. I have plants 25 days in veg much bigger than that I can say. Cfl's will never get to the middle of that Bush.

    Actually......hes not neccessarily wrong when he says not nearly done....the most swelling and development will happen in weeks 6-12 depending on genetics. Week 6 is generally when swelling begins. Give or take 3 to 4 weeks to allow them to fully swell. B
    once it does start swelling. The buds will double, triple, sometimes quadruple there size from the time they start swelling to when there finished. Also CFL's GENERALLY take longer to flower with . I say generally because its not always the case

    C0D07916-D28B-491C-A1EF-D5E28F151395.jpeg The finished produced was not bad for me, I feel as though I harvest maybe a couple days early other then that, great smoke great high flavors on point. Wasn’t sayin he was wrong was just pointing out that there are strains and genetics that finish in 45-55 days and others take 90 all about the gens and lights. And for the cfls... havent had a problem with them. I can see how something with more power would be better but for what I’m workin with can’t complain..

    The strain I grow calls for as early as 45 days but the plants I grow usually go about 55 days flower

    I have had pistils the whole life of this plant, I assume because it was a reveged. they came in really heavy after the light switch however.
