i am a first time grower and my plant has been growing for a bout 2 and a half months now. she is about 4 feet tall from the dirt to the top. on the bottom the leaves are really small then they start getting bigger. i have taken off 3 sets because they were turning brown. i meen the lowest 3 sets. now the first leaves start at about 18 inches from the bottom. i look at other ppls plants and they are all so bushy and have huge leaves at the bottom. i have on flouro and sum other grow light that is like a bulb i think. it is a yellow type of light. i have them both very close but try to get the whole plant. i am pretty sure it is a female because it has the two little pistil things. i think that i might have transplanited it a little late because when it had more root space the leaves did get bigger. basically i jus wanted to know y my plant isnt as bushy as others. also i would like to know when i should start giving it a 12\12 cycle and start producing those big beautiful buds.
