    I am curing my first attempt. Mistakes at the beginning compounded into problems later. My seeds germinated over the course of two weeks which made them grow at uneven heights. When I got into the 12/12 hours cycle, they were too tall for my tent and the light was too close (despite putting them as high as I could considering the fans). This resulted in nutrient burn because they were drawing nutrients from the soil even when it was drying out. The result is some of my buds turned Hermie! I am inexperienced with indoor growing, but I learned how I should have used the tent and kept the plants low (LST of SCROG). Good luck.

    Yes the soil sucks.... it doesn't drain... I have never had water come out the bottom... they are in fabric pots.... I watered them every few days as it says.... I have better soil and bigger fabric pots coming

    Burner.
    Agree about stopping the miracle gro. Some people are allergic to pot grown in it. I am one.

    I water every 48 to 72 hours, as Hemp Goddess once said there is no set schedule for anything with these babies.
    You can bud at any time, I would give them a week or so to get used to their new soil.
    I'm having great success with 50/50 soil to coco fiber for soil, I'm using Fox Farms nutes and they work great.
    I have a strain called "Blue Ice" that looks a lot like the pictures you have, it's the biggest pain in the *** I have ever grown, it's out of my garden unless it's the best ever.
    Anyway, let those babies root a bit better, I would personally try to get a little more stretch from them first.
    Good luck !!!

    They don't seem to stretch at all.... they have stayed nice and tight.... I don't even have full lights on yet... I'm hoping once I turn them to flower they will stretch
