  3. Yes! Remember, your plants are still going to double in size and sometimes triple in flower - you've still got to leave them in there another 9-10 weeks.

  4. You did not mention what type of lights. Regardless, you only have a certain height you must stay within to take full advantage of those lights. learn that "light sweet spot", and tie over plants to keep them in that spot. I hope this helps

  8. Yes. Go ahead and put up your strongest light. Hang it high enough at first so there is no chance of light burn because the hps burn hot, but the size and density of your buds is directly proportional to how much good strong lighting they get during flower. We doubled our lights from 2 1000 watt hps to 4 last year and our buds doubled or tripled in size and density. They're weeds. They're strong and yours are obviously healthy and beautiful. But I would tie back some of those tops/shoots just pulling them over to the side and down some. This will open up the center of the plant and allow the inner growth to get enough light to develop and come on out. It just increases the yield of the plant. Beautiful plant and you've done an excellent job with the plant. Toss it in there and let it go. Remember, as far as where the light hangs, if you get it down to close over your plant, you'll lose coverage of the area. So leave it high enough over your plant so it has good overall coverage by the light. This plant is going to still do some serious growing when you put it under the hps...they love that form of light. And if height restrictions are your problem, just use some string and duct tape to pull the taller shoots down some. Not sure what you're working with as far as a grow area. But you sure have a beautiful plant! Nice job!

  12. I went from CFL about 100 watts > 1000 HPS at about 22 inches from canopy almost one month ago. The growth was unbelievable! They are going to love that rig!

  15. You should defoliate the inside of the plants let them veg another week and than flip to flower so you can do a mini super crop.
