So for some reason I though i read this now I cant remember is there any steps you need to take before you switch these lovely ladies in to flowering.(I.E. stop giving them grow nutes, or give them bloom nuts before or anything of that nature?) Any tips or things I need to know about switching from veg to bloom would really help. Thanks guy!!!:smoke::D

That might hasten bloom, but it might also stress your plants out.

You're looking at a 3 to 3 1/2 ft. tall plant at harvest time. As far as the water, you'll just have to feel that one out. Most plants need slightly less water and lower humidity during flowering. I don't use nutes anymore, so I can't offer you any advice there. Hope that helps.

I'm using bio-grow and bi-bloom and I think I'm suppose to give them bio-grow and bio-bloom while I'm blooming? But I don't know if I should just use the bio-bloom instead of a mixture the ingredients are the same but the bloom is just weaker than the grow solution some one mentioned that earlier in the thread. But I mean I just want to make sure I have enough room because it is really worrying me. I gave them bio-grow yesterday and I'm switching them into bloom today so just any tips that you guys use is what I was after with this post.

I switch nutrients the same time I switch lights. Works for me.

I keep the metal halide for first two weeks of flower cycle and switch to hps for rest and maybe mh for last week.Using mh the first 2 weeks reduces stretch. Also keep dark/lite temperature ratio within 10 degrees c.Hope this helps Shithead:wave:
