    Hi,

    I am growing some Lemon Skunk clones and have about 4 weeks veg time on these.

    I have been vegging under a single 600w MH but will be flowering under 2 600w HPS bulbs in my 4'x8'x6.5' tent.

    Anyway, my main concern is whether I have waited too long or could wait another week or so as I (like most people here I imagine) would like to max out my space to justify using 1200w of light.

    I read somewhere that an average indica strain could potentially triple in height from the end of veg to the end of flower.

    Anyway, thanks for taking a look and please feel free to comment. :smoke:

  2. I would flip now because they could take your cab over.... and by the time you harvest you will be able to see how they flower and if they triple in size. Just my. 02¢ I would also cut clones to be sure I have more to flower when these are done.
     
  3. I also think you could city your light down to 600 Watts in that area. U will be using more energy than u need with all 1200.
     
  4. I would lollipop that big one
     
  5. It doesnt matter when you flip them. I've vegged for over two months before. It's all about how much space do you have to work with.

    Indica's are usually smaller than sativa, so at least you got that one working for you. people always say "double to triple in height" ... in my experience, its basically just double.

    If you want to maximize your space, I'de let em go another week

    Yeah but keep in mind that the pic is only showing a 4x4 area of my 4x8 (or half the square footage). With that being said do you think it's still possible to get adequate light coverage with a single 600?

    I'm not sure what you mean by lollipop lol.

    (edit: sorry I YouTube'd it and yeah I think you're right. As a new grower my main focus over the last month has been keeping it all alive hehe.)
     
  8. yea i would just take those few bottom ones off because when it doubles in size the bottom branches wont get light and you'll get tiny buds on them...you could use them for clones if you want to or just chuck em

    Ok
    Nevermind.
     
  10. I would pinch the tops an let them go a few more weeks. You will get more top colas an that is where a majority of your weigh is.
