New to Forum, Not New to Growing

I learned a lot in a small amount of time. Now that I have a clearer understanding of how things work, what better way to learn more than to dive into discussions. You’re right, still learning every day. I hope to never stop.

Cali Dream is about 36 inches tall at the tallest point. So far she has been a perfect grow. Had a slight issue with dampening off at the very beginning but haven’t had any issues with her since. I love this plant.

The Critical Mass AF has been pretty effortless too. I think she’s at 31 or 32 inches. Not overly crazy about AFs, but it’s not bad. I think it’s going to be packed with buds, so I’m ok with that. I just don’t like genetic modified plants in general. Call it a hold over from when I was a farm boy.

Just flipped? How long you run total prior to flipping. Just curious

That was about week 6 I think. I don’t really have a set time for when I flip. I was waiting until they were half the size I wanted them, but this one I did a little earlier. I’ve had trouble with them stretching past my light in the past so I wanted to do it before it was half. I think I waited until it was like 16 inches or 18 inches instead of 24. My total grow area is 48 inches from top of the grow site to the bottom of the light. I gave it a little more time to make sure the dampening off stopped.

This is the feeding chart from GH that I follow as a guide.

Everything I have read really just goes off how tall it is. At least for indoor grows where you can control the light cycle. I have extended the veg phase in the past longer than the chart recommends because it wasn’t quite tall enough.

Are you planning on topping it? If so, you will probably be ok. I left my Blue Dream go for about 3 months and it was a little long, but it didn’t cause that much of an issue. I just had to tie the main cola to the side so it wasn’t getting burnt by my light.

I would definitely not let it get bigger than half the total size.
