some are slower than others, you will really notice a huge difference at the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th week.........

Also, check what differences you and your bud are using to grow.

Examples:
loving care as opposed to a perfunctory visit every three or four days.
Cfl vs HID
nutes
soil
Etc.
Etc.

Hey himan, if you and your friend are growing the same strain...and his are busting out well ahead of your own...the difference is the overall environment in which the two gorws are occuring.

The only way two people growing the same strain are going to get day to day exactly the same amount of growth is to have thier grow space be carbon capoies of one another.

Same light, same distance from the lights...same temps...same grow medium and containers, same nutes, same feeding schedule and amounts fed.

Otherwise, no two different environments are going to net the same day to day results.

Are they in 'total' darkness during lights off?..a light leak can delay flowering, as can an over abundance of nitrogen.

the same strain eh? hhhmmmmm and what kinda seed? could be a unstable strain and he got 1 pheno and you got another. this can be seen even in clones. the bc GODBUD is famous fer it. you could have the sativa side and sometimes 3 weeks is nothing. as long as ya got 12/12, dont worry.

lol the funny thing is that they are his clones lol(just brought up differently different soil and nutes), he took the clones from the same mother and gave me 1 of each strain haha, i guess i shouldnt worry too much they starting to show some progress now ill post pics up soon and you guys can tell me how they doin for 3 weeks into flowering, cheers guys your help so far has been most appreciated, just one question though do larger plants take longer to flower then smaller ones because the smaller ones get more light throughout the entire plant, the larger plant has bigger leaves and covers more of the plant itself and get less light penetrating through the canopy

No, flowering time will not be affected by plant size.

very, very nice. top notch, 5+ weeks to go. that black DOM is tasty

tall and short plants of the same strain will flower in the same time frame. but a sativa will take longer then an indica.
