guys, i'm getting kind of nervous about how big these plants may get if I veg any longer. they're only about 6-6 1/2" tall but they're really lush and compact. They're both females and I have to decide wether I am going to start flowering this saturday or wait for 2 more weeks because I will be gone on holiday. So vote now:

start flowering 5/28/11
start flowering 6/11/11

I have room for them to get up to 3' tall each, what should I do?

Congratz on the girlz.

I vote for 6/11/11.

As i think 6 1/2" and 4weeks old from seed is to small and young to start flowering. Better to give two more weeks of veg and maybe get some tall plants. It all depends on how quick they grow and how much they stretch in flower. But I think they're to small to start flowering now.

You can always train them - or maybe even top them (don't know how cm responds to topping, but if u research and ask around i'm sure you'll find out).

Give 'em an extra couple of weeks veg - should increase your yield even if u have to prune of some bottom growth and do some bondage on them.

thanks guys!

i think i'm going to start flowering after one more week maybe, idk, i will be having someone take care of my plants while i'm gone and i'll ask them to update me with pics.

i think it'd be good to flower when they're both about 10" tall what you think? Also, how do you guys feel about the pics above of the slight curling? Something I should worry about or will it go away as the root systems develop more?

Hi Nice!

I still give you between 80 and 90% chance of success. It looking good!
for the curling leafs I suspect your humidity level is too high!

Have fun!

thanks again guys! they're about 2' away from the light and i put my hand above them and it's actually really cool, but the humidity would make sense! I will definitely pull the pan of water i have in there out and put a small bowl of water to evaporate instead. they didn't start doing that until i put it in there, now that I think about it!

i just had a really high humidity level till now because i wanted to make sure my plants turned female cause i've read that a low humidity level and high temp create males or hermies!

I'll check it out! THANKS AGAIN!

I wouldn't worry about the leaf curl unless it gets worse - they don't look stressed at all. I think the curl is prolly result of having your fan blowing straight at the plant and not oscilliating.

High humidity in early veg is very good, the plants love it - as long as you have good air exchange and circulation you should be golden.

Just wanted to post a link: Moisture stress thread by cantankerous old man. An absolute classic by the legendary Uncle Ben.

hey bud.

-did u say that they are both girls? i woulda thought it b too early to tell... are the preflowers developed yet? you gotta know so u can plan and allocate resources accordingly..

-oops, today is 5-28.. so too late to vote.. my opinion is strongly on the side of veggin 'em bigger ...

-can't remember if you already stated the available space.. so 3 feet vertical growth and like what, 1m X 1m?

cheers. .. .

tee hee!! and behind door no.2 we have LSD!! venture forth! oh, and watch yourself behind doors 6 and 8, not sayin there's anything 'up' with them, but with great power comes great responsibility.. and running into too many doors lead to posts that confuse the one reading it before it has ever been posted.. i should know as i'm plenty confused at the the stroke of these keys. .. .. .. .. .. .. ........
