Yummy!

I'm really only experienced in growing tomatoes...but from my understanding tomatoes grow just like weed. Remember, they really appreciate as much light as you can give them. DIRECT sunlight. They look like they are kinda stretchy and I'd hate to see you end up with popcorn bud on such nice plants.

They will be good for a week or two more in those pots...might want to get bigger ones. Are you giving them any fertilizers? Do you bring them inside at night (is that why they are already flowering in June?)

I highly recommend you experiment with topping and make a bushier/shorter plant. Like peace seeker said...you will be able to better utilize the surface area of your plants canopy receiving light from the flouros. If they were always outside in direct sunlight I wouldn't top them and just let them grow staight up in one main cola. But otherwise it might benefit to top/train them next time.

Looking really awesome Lady Olive!

My first good grow

Thanks LaughinFit,

I should have experimented with topping, and I wiil for sure my next grow.
They are indoor plants, But, I've been taking them out for sun the last few days jsut for some real sun.
I pushed flowering because of the space and lighting I have inside. I really don't want them much bigger. The place they are in outside is not completely safe. ( But, I'm working on that!) Yes, the one plant is really stretched, but I had to wait to see how many females I had and they all (8) shared a certain amount of light.
So they do have a little stretching. But the other 2 are pretty bushy. Leaves everywhere and tons..... of flowers going.
I take them out about 1pm and they go back in, in the early evening under the lights until the timer shuts off.
So they are doing really well in pots they are in, but I will re-pot if I have to.

This is my first real grow and I'm really experimenting..... but I never dreamed they would have turned out even this good.
So I will settle for what I get out of them and will do a lot better next time with all the expertise I've gotten on this forum!


Peace friends,
LadyOlive

Nice pics

If your gonna keep them ladies in flower mode I suggest using a bloom booster. Miricle grow makes a good one. You'll see your flowers get nice and juicy. If you want to see what topping does check out my grow log. Great job ladyolive.

A whole new grow area!

Hey All,

I have a whole new growing area now!
I went to Home Depot and bought some lumber and another 4ft shop light. The whole things stands 5ft tall and 3ft out from the wall.
I am using the flat white side of poster board and it works great. I didn't have the big pieces of wood to paint so I improvised.
Hubby came home from work pretty impressed. LOL

I know it doesn't look as professional as some of yours does, but it's mine and my plants are doing great! I also bought some bloom booster that Thisbuds4u told me about. (Thanks bud!)

Here are some pics of it.... It turned out awesome and it's bright as hell in there! Taking them outside was just too risky.

They aren't really getting any taller, just filling out and flowering nicely!
I should have a pretty decent harvest!

Peace friends,
LadyOlive

Cola's looking good!

Here's a pic of one of my girls's colas! I know it's not huge but it looks pretty good to me. I've cut the lights to 15/9. I'm pushing them.

They are about 5 weeks into flowering and around 4 1/2 ft tall.
My next grow I will be topping them for sure.

But the oddest thing is.... They don't really have much of a strong smell?
I mean they have a very light smell.

Does that mean anything? Good, bad, strength? Anybody know?

Nice!!!

Nice kola action there my friend. I won't worry about the smell. It may get stronger as time goes by. And it will definately get stronger after you dry and cure them. Keep up the good work. ..)

Re-potted today

Hey All,

Here's a pic of my girls. I repotted today into 5 Gal containers. And watered them really good, and used some bloom booster.

Had some advise from a few people on the board here and decided to take a chance and re-pot. They were getting rootbound, so I'm hoping they love me for it!

May the weed gods be with you

Looking good. Hope the shock isn't too much for them. I see your getting some nice kola action. How's the smell? I'm sure the girls will love you for their new home. Don't be surprised if they grow a little faster.

hey the grow looks really really nice.

not to burst your bubble as im sure you are probably aware from seeing them all the time, they are probably not gonna be very big in terms of mass of bud you harvest from them....flouro light is not really that great for flowering....the one thing ive learned over the years is unless you give them full fucking sun outside or just a load of hps or high intensity lighting then they just dont fill out very much.

that said, you still look like your doing great, and im sure you'll end up with a nice harvest for your first grow !
