Default afghan haze, mazar i sharif and bodhi sativa

germinated and put under shop lights (160 watts i think) and then so far 3 weeks of veg under a 400 w mh with added red spectrum. some were topped and fimmed when the 5th node appeared (to control height and give a semi even canopy). Left the bottom branches only on the bodhi since it is so vigorous the bottom branches have almost reached the top of the plant. ran into a calcium defiency with the afghan haze but i seem to nipped that in the bud. Now i am seeing holes in some of the top fan leaves, happens every single grow during veg then i spray with neem and it usaully subsides in flower any suggestions on what kind of bugs are doing this? (My camera doesnt do close ups well) Going to put them in flower soon, seems like i have
2+ phenos. One more haze pheno without a thick canopy where all branches get light and a more dense thicker canopy with no light going to the bottom. some of the afghan hazes are skunky and smelling up the grow room already.
First pic all afghan haze, second the more haze pheno, third the mazar i sharif and last but not least the bodhi sativa (one of my favorite strains i took it 14.5 weeks last time).

the mazar is from the boo, it kinda looks similar to the more indica phenos of the afghan haze.

put them into flower, now we just wait to see how many females i got. They are all in one gallon containers...how late into flower can i retransplant if i have more space then expected? (higher male to female ratio, i have got a place for any males i come across now)

i wouldn't wait any longer than 14days max...i've read in many grow books that one should transplant before flowering but if necessary most books i have say after two weeks you will really slow down the plant a bit...instead of putting energy into bud growth, resin production, etc. the plant focuses energy on rooting which costs in yield and will make flowering times a bit longer...also transplanting some "sensitive plants" during flowering can cause hermies so you just got to be tender and delicate with transplanting...i had clones on my last run and transplanted half two weeks into flower and the yield suffered and also the transplanted clones took a week to 10days longer to finish...in the end u break even on time so it really depends on the space you have and the number of plants you wanna run...i personally focus on 9females at a time maximum and transplant and allow a good 10-14days veg before flower as it really boosts yield and gives plants thicker stems and allow larger buds that don't require as much support for weight,etc.

EDIT: Heard some good reports on the free Mazar from the boo...supposely brought from Mazar I Sharif to europe through a british soldier who collected the seed while serving over-seas and then supplied them as a gift to gypsy...seems like a plant that could have potential for breeding as its supposively a true IBL from Mazar grown by the natives, smoke reports range from the occasional keeper to plants that are very landrace looking (lacking taste as it has not been refined by a breeder)

how long does it usually take the afghan haze to show sex after switching to flower? The mazar i shariff showed balls pretty quick but he rest are still unknown.

it can take a lil while with haze hybrids if they are not vegged until preflowers show and then switched to 12/12...for example if you veg the plant 6-8wks you'll see preflowers and can flip and find em rather fast...if you don't veg hazes long (which is why most run cuttings of a selected mother-the age of the plant with hazes really impacts the flowering period from my experience) it can take a lil while, anywhere from 10-21days of 12/12 would be my guess with your 3 week veg depending on the haze dominance in the particular pheno...best of luck and keep it green
