    It varies a little by strain, but I'll say weeks 3 - 6 (12/12)

    they generally put on there most weight last few weeks of flowering 2-3 when you think there not growing. the truth is that the calyxes are swelling at this time, and from there its time to chop once they have swelled to they cant swell no more and the tricones are fully mature

    I'd say in the last 3 weeks. weeks 7 to 10 , 6 to 9, whatever depending on the strain

    sorry man but with that light all ur doing is burning the crap out of ur plants... its only 36 watts at max from the looks of it so not much lumens but it will burn ur plants at that close distance. at best u would just end up swelling up ur popcorn buds at bottom slightly fatter but no real improvement.

    idk man seems to be just fine. if i notice any burning ill take it out. as if now seems to be doing a nice job fattening the lower sites since the canopy of green blocks out the 400 watter
