    I have changed some lights around and made things a little more effecient. Also switched a few bulbs to 2700K spectrum for the duration. Tall plant is around 18in, i took most of the big fans off today to let light in. Hoping to know sex any day now.

    Everything is lookin good nat!:good job:

    Have you started thinking about topping or training? Or maybe doing a SCROG? Once they are in full flower its gonna be kinda hard to control vertical growth. Have you ordered you 150w system yet?

    They usually take about a 7-10 days of forced flowering to show sex depending on maturity, so it should really be any day now. I always pay attention to the internode length, usually females pretty much stay tight and compact and males usually grow taller and skinnier, but that also depends on the light, and how close they are to the light,

    What kind of nutrients did you get? Have you feed them yet?

    Ill be watching..... :popcorn-2:

    Thanks ShoTyme. I'm trying to wait until i determine sex before i do anything as far as training or topping. If i get both females im going to top the tall one, the short one should make the stretch untouched. Speaking of which, structurally the tall one would be male and shorty female is my guess and like you said, any day now i will know.

    If i get just 1 female i will tie some branches down and let her spread out.

    Prob keeping the lights how they are for this run to learn what im doing. Been watching a thread with LED's and am still debating which way i will go. I like the UFO's with the ring attachment. When i get to forking over some cash for a light upgrade i might just go with the LED. For my cab it will be good.

    My lights are within inches, and sometimes they grow onto the fluoro tubes with no leaf burning. I raise the cfl's every morning at lights on to the best height.

    Ive feed them one time about a week ago at the start of 12/12 with a 8-8-8 NPK fert. They didn't respond either way, good or bad, to it. Just kept growing, lol.

    That's what's up.

    I really don't really know about the LED lights but I have seen good photos and videos that had real nice lookin buds!

    If you haven't seen any bad results with your nutes, good. Feed every other watering and slowly increase the amounts.

    Two girls from two plants ? SWEET ! I got lucky, me thinks. Girls have been fed with Bloom Booster/Superthrive/rain water solution and basking in the sun for a few hours this morning. Two'ish weeks since the 12/12

    Everything seems to be going smooth. Been feeding with rainwater and Super Bloom. One is over 3ft now.

    Girls are doing good so far i think. Budding up now, holding their green color. Having to water the one in the smaller pot every day or two. Prob rootbound at this point but will finish it out.

    Added another 65watter, i love these things. :growin:

    The ladies are still doing ok i think. Budding up nicely. One of the girls is yellowing out a little but i am not too worried. Still feeding with rainwater and Super Bloom.

    Here is the big girl. She is going 1 more week with the cab all to herself.


    And here is the smalller girl all chopped up !!


    I am very pleased with my harvest from the first plant, and the smoke looks pretty good imo. Got it drying now, hope to smoke some of it next weekend while i chop her sister up.

    I'm happy considering what i put into this... easily less then 100bux.

    Forgive me for not reading the whole thread. I just skimmed, mostly looking at pictures. Did you really finish these with nothing but flos? If so that's a very impressive haul that looks like top quality buds. Even if you got the 150W HPS you mentioned it's an excellent result. Your first grow? Really?!? :thumbs-up: :bong-2: I look forward to seeing round 2.

    One suggestion (while the other one is still alive!): as hard as it is be very patient. Maybe that last picture is deceiving, but I see no orange/red hairs. You may have been able to let it go longer for more yield. Keep that in mind the next time you pull out the shears. :) If I'm wrong about what I see, then carry on. :smoke2:
