    I like sizing up multiple times during veg.
    250ml, 700ml, 2000ml, 3 gallon.
    I let the plants roots fill the pot but not root bound, then I always transplant on there dry cycle so the roots don’t have to hold as much weight .
    Went u transplant, fill the new pot with medium and a pot of the same size as the transplant at the desired depth, then removed, now there’s a perfect hole ready , less stress.

    I’m very big on target practice
    From March - August I shoot at lease 50 rounds a month out of my rig. Countless rim fires .
    Blow that shit up . But clean up after yourself, nothing worse then going into the bush n seeing garbage all shot up, gives hunters a bad name.

    12 hours later and the plants look OK. going to keep an eye on them and give them 2 weeks to recover before I top them. Thinking about maybe pulling the light up a little and let them stretch just a little so I can try to clone the tops.

    1. I run LED, made the mistake of not doing proper research and also found myself stuck with a cheap light box that only put 95w out when it was rated at 300w. I would definitely hold onto it though, you may need supplemental lighting eventually or if a bulb takes a dump you can throw it back in temporarily.
    After researching, I now have a Quantum Board LED (QB120-4K) and it has impressed the fuck out of me and so far I’m getting great results and looking to buy another (3k)

    2. It’s totally fine to break up the root ball a bit when transplanting, you don’t want to destroy it but “loosening” the ball is good to get the roots unbound (if they are) and give them breathing room to stretch out. I wouldn’t stress about root damage if the root ball still stayed together for the most part

    I think one of my plants is getting sick or it might be due to the root ball damage. one plant is turning yellow with spots on the leaves.

    I feed them at half strength yesterday using floranova nutrients. The 2 lower leaves continue to get worse but the rest of the plant looks good. Should I just pluck them off and be done with it?
    How soon will the sex show?
    I took the eaves off and decided to look at the leaf under a magnifier I noticed a few black spots and thought right away spider mites! Right away I went and brought some Garden safe Fungicide3 spray and a hot shot no past strip. Sprayed the plants under and over then hung the NPS. I might of over reacted because I keep checking the leaf and nothing is moving it might just be dirt lol. Better be safe than sorry right?

    Day 14 everything looks okay I have hung 2 hotshot NPS's and turned off ventalation for the past 2 night during the 4 hours of darkness hopefully if I did have spider mites this will have taken care of it. I'll keep then in there for a while just as a precautionary measure.
    I think my ladies are slow growers might be due to the temp I keep the room 75deg or might just be the genetics. In a week I plan to top the girls using the FIM technique. Could someone tell me if my marked picture is the correct place to make the cut? Also what do you think about the rate of growth.
