Default My first grow

Hello everyone. I am in the middle pf my first grow and am excited to see what i get from my harvest. Let me catch you guys up.
I started my garden of 5 initial plants. They were under 5 100 watt equivelant cfls for the first 4-6 weeks of life. They are being grown in a closet for the time being untill i can get a tent for them to be in instead.
I Currently have a 400 watt hid setup with mh and hps bulbs. I only got 3 females out of the five so i dont think thats too bad. They got flipped one week ago. They are starting to show bid formation already too. Here are some pictures.

Ya i cant wait till the harvest. Would it be too late to put them in a screen to fan them out a little. Kinda like a scrog?

Hi robby That is a great first grow, you will have to feed it right in flowering, what is the fertiliser that you are using? NPK and brand? how much are you feeding? a scrog is a good option you have to do that soon since they are now stretching

I am feeding now about every 3 days. Just took these pics earlier. Nice little buds there. Almost been 3 weeks since i flipped. I believe they are done stretching. I had to tie them down. I only have about 5 foot of clearance and they were getting too tall.

looking good robby---i like your idea of tie downs instead of the 2" screen---plants will too---3 females from 5 sprouts is good---they look like an indica dominant strain---what are they

not necessarily "better" in general---but---in this here and now application of a screen with an already flowering canopy will not only cut the light to the lowers that are already forming but would require lots of pruning of those lowers and too much stress this late in the game---in turn---short changing his harvest---lst is great but timing is everything---imo he missed the window to screen and tie down would be the most effective way to get the most of this harvest while still reaping the benefits of lst---the ideal time for Training is passed---time for Low Stress tie downs to put some weight on those flowers

For all those experienced more with this then i am. For being 3 weeks the switch to 12-12 how do my girls look size wise. I see alot of people who have 5-8 week flowering.plants and theors have a whole lot.more mass than.mine. i understand thay a few weeks can make a.big difference but at the rate mine are going im.unsure if they will have some decent colas on them

Youre going to have some nice chunks at 5 weeks. At 8 weeks you will need support because your buds will be so heavy........if you do your part.
