    Ok so after smoking Afghan kush Ryder for the last 6 months I'm going back to my old favourite. Female seeds Cinderella 99.
    As s change of pace I'm ditching the 250 hps and will be vegging with a 150 watt of cool white CFL bulb then putting in a 300 watt flowering CFL bulb in the reflector ,but hanging the 150 vertically as side lighting. I have a good feeling about this.

    What makes this a sympathy grow? Well unfortunately the single seed I purchased has sprouted as a bit of a mutant, maybe even a runt though to early to say. ...I was thinking about tossing it and sprouting the paradise seeds original White widow ibl instead.. but something is telling me to stick with this..it may end up insane.. and Cindy has never let me down..so let's see what happens.

    The first few leaves have grown all funky..but leaf set 3 looks like there is hints of it growing out of it

    Day 14 . far from being a runt. Extremely vigorous. I'm going to transplant later and switch to 12/12

    Change of plan. When transplanting the bottom.quarter of the soil stuck and the plant was ripped away from its bottom root mass. Not good. So I've decided to veg for another two weeks.
    Few hours after she had perked up again so I also topped her aswell.

    Looks like your instinct was right both in growing the "runt" out and putting it under a cool 150w CFL. I'm loving the structure of that C99, I've grown the original from Bros Grimm back in the day and more recently the PeakseedsBC version, and neither one is as stocky and branchy as yours, those traits are very desirable and they may translate to denser flowering structure. If I were you I'd be ready with a suitable male for a pollen chuck.

    I bet if you put it back under the HPS it would really take off. I got a whole cabinet of some really weird looking testers right now. Just cause they ugly doesn't mean they cant grow great smoke!

    I am considering flowering with HP's actually. I don't really have the money to buy the 300 watt cfl I wanted.

    This 150 watt cool white CFL really kills it for vegging though

    Day 20..

    damn yea that is not bad for day 20, although its super short and squat. just the way she grows.

    I doubt you will regret flowering under the HPS.

    C99 starts off short and indica in veg then explodes into thin leaf stretchy sativa in flower..wait and see the next update :)

    Quick update. Put her under the hps 2 days ago and initiated flowering... Also got a fan for air circulation . She seemed a bit stressed by the new hotter windier conditions and I lost a leaf to wind burn or heat I'm not sure.but she seems to have adjusted now.

    To this

    It's incredible how c99 transforms from indica to sativa traits. Even the smells change. Up until a few days ago the stems had the very typical lemony dank smell you get with a lot of indicas... amazingly today the stems have taken on a sweet bubblegum smell. Which I have had before on my c99 plants and the smoke of these phenos has always been really strong.

    Also as expected, and one of the reasons I grow this. There is no odour coming from this bush at all. None, zero. 100% stealth

    Good point. This is also one of the reasons I like C99, it's a stealthy plant.

    Day 10 flower. The stretch is real. She's also drinking like a fish. Introduced her to 1/3rd bloom food today.

    That's classic C99, indica-looking in the beginning, sativa stretch once induced. Looks like a good pheno though, hoping for thick flower clusters. Good job

    She really is a lovely plant. Drinking half a gallon a day now. Gave her some mollasses with this watering.

    Day 14 flower, no preflowers yet. Stretching 2 inches per day.
    Gave her a bit of a trim today, took off the lowest branches that wouldn't be very productive.
