    No experience with that strain but it would be cool if you had foil on the walls instead of on the floor

    Fast buds are a wicked breeder! Havent grown out the mexican airlines but have grown crystal meth and rhino ryder and both were fantastic so this shouldnt let you down.
    Could probably remove those cfls and drop that t5 real low bro. Introduce the cfls later but mount from the sides as all your cfls are currently doing is blocking the light from the t5s

    How's this look bubblenut? Got the CFL's unplugged now but that's how it's gonna look when it's time to bring em back. Dropped the t5 down to about 5" away from the plant.

    Looking much better bruh! Better lumen distribution. Grab a cheap lux meter so you can play around with light positioning and see what works best for your grow space.

    Thanks for the help lights look a lot better now. Got a few more pics and I got some GH rapid start root enhancer and a sample bottle of GH floralicious plus gonna try out next water. It's lookin like its wilting in a couple spots near the middle of the leaves. Not sure if my ph tester works too good it's onea them 3 in 1 light/ph/moist but it says the ph is around 8. image.jpeg image.jpeg

    Too early wait for 3 nodes,you need to control the stretching.

    I second this. Your stem is still developing and you have nothing to train anyway...

    You want to start lst when you have 3 or 4 nodes all with branch development from main stem. Is potentially a killer to plant at this stage

    Right on glad I didn't go ahead and do it. The plants lookin kinda shitty man I watered it on Friday. I looked through the pictures of plant problems and what to do but I'm a rookie so it didn't mean much to me. I got a 5 gal dirt pot and the flora series pack was gonna transfer tmrw before water. Any help is appreciated.

    Do transplant and then water in. Allow to dry fully between waterings by checking drain holes. If the soil is dry when you stick your finger in the hole its time to water. Every 3-5 days you will find. To much moisture will stunt/kill an auto!

    Do I need to stab a hole in the bottom of the dirt pot? Some water came out the bottom after I watered it but I put a gallon into it and expected a little more to come out. image.jpeg

    Hope that's not tinfoil in last pic on sides or over top. Worst reflector creates hot spots on plants. Does not absorb heat well. Flat white walls are best to keep as is.
