  1. Greetings,
    I am a first time grower with some budah cheese girls flowering.

    I switched to 12/12 on the 15th of April meaning my girls are in their 6th week of flower, I'm looking for advice because I have seen 6 week old plants that look almost ready for flush/harvest but mine still have tiny buds. I defoliated on the 4th of May but didn't think it would have this impact could it have been that? I am using jungle juice 3part micro grow and bloom they are taking the nuets well so I don't think it is anything to do with them, I also seen a thread that said day one of flower isn't day 1 of 12/12 but day 1 is the day you see the first lot of pistols.

    Forgive me for sounding like an absolute noob

    Any advice is welcome

    Thanks in advance

  2. Just to add I'm using a 300w led mixed spectrum
  3. You have small buds because you don't have enough light. That 300w led is probably only a 135w light - barely enough for one plant.
    Good luck and welcome to GC. :)

  4. Thanks for the responses, Would a 600w led be better? I was considering a hps but wanted to keep the energy costs as low as possible, I was also considering adding 4 cfls 2 either side would this be an alternative to buying a new light

    Thanks :)
  5. I’d look into quantum boards. They’re a white light LED that’s blowing HPS out of the water they’re all over this forum
