thanks, Colonel. I potted them in a mix of Miracle Grow (organic and moisture retention) I didn't know what to buy so I grabbed a couple that sounded ok. The plants are looking good, just can't sex them yet. I topped three of them on Monday. We'll see how it goes. I think Wednesday is the end of the fourth week from seed. Not sure when I should switch to flowering.
Thanks for checking it out.
Ah that makes sense. MG is pretty hot for younger plants and seedlings. That curl is pretty standard until plants get to be a little older and can handle the food, or they strip enough out of the soil to balance things. Looks like you've hit that point.
Your topping looks good. They have some very nice strong looking stems. Did you take any clones?
How much room do you have to work with? What are your overall room dimensions? Your plants will stretch a bit during flowering, so if you have height restrictions, that is something to keep in mind.
You could probably let them bush out for a couple more weeks before flipping them. That will help your yield tremendously.
CFL's also don't have the best penetrating power, but your topping should help with that a lot. A little training to get a nice, flat and even canopy would be ideal to maximize yield with that 250.
Don't be afraid to bend, tie, and clip to get them into the size and shape you want. They're resilient plants and can put up with the stress if they're healthy.
Looking forward to your next update.
