:yesnod:

Had to ask...Those strains take a little longer to flower, but not real sure as to why it has taken this long...It's getting there.

7.1.09 7 weeks since germination
The SSH has decided to stretch some more despite 3 and a half weeks of 12/12 light regime and if she won't get her shit together the shit will hit the fan soon. Literally.

Is there anything I can do to get her to stretch less and start flowering faster? I'd hate to have to cut her highest branches now.
And the other plant:

And the other plant:






dont cut, bend! 

You can train your plant.... take some speaker wire, or threading / yarn & slowly bend the plant down, a little more every other day.  I have one of mine bent over, it eventually bends back up but I have room for it to grow again now and more light is hitting the middle of the plant where there are more bud spots :smile:
i love how the plant @ beginning of flowering when the top begins the massive white pistils; it realld does look like a flower!

13.01.09
Thanks for your advice t0ad! I didn't have to bend a lot to keep the plant to an acceptable height. Sorry to hear about the trouble you have been having with your grow.
Here are some pics of the bend:

And here's the status on the buds on the SSH:

Looks like they have a long way to go to me. I'm starting to think the waiting is the hardest part about growing your first plants.
Big Bang:
I don't know what to say. The buds are getting bigger but slowly. This strain seems to be able to take any kind of mistake a newb can throw at it. I'm wondering if it's normal for the bid leafs to be so much darker than the rest of the plant?

This damage you see in the last picture is because there's not enough room for all the leaves and some are bent up against the walls.

I'm moving out of my house in to an apartment, and I've been trying to figure out if continuing my grow in an apartment is possible.

Very nice, I am going to be starting a closet grow soon, it will be my first real attempt at growing, what kind of water regime are you using on your plants?

I grow with soil...Hydroponics is too tedius for my school/work schedule I don't have the time to monitor very closely...Close enough though for what I do.

I don't water on a schedule like you would in hydro I water on an as needed basis. According to the moistness of the soil...It's the best way to keep from over watering/burning them with nutes n what have you.

So... how big of a no-no is it to harvest one of the smaller branches right now (~4 weeks left)?

Eh, its not a good idea but you can if you must. At 4 weeks until harvest you won't get very high though. As your plant gets older it will get more potent and gain in bulk. So its really up to you, a little bit of weak weed now or more great weed in a month.

Let them trichs start to turn =D

Yea I definitely wouldn't do it. It's a waste of your time. You spent all of this effort in some great looking plants to ruin it...Wait 4 weeks man I promise it's worth it.

20.01.09 5 and a half weeks in to flowering
First off, the Big Bang is starting to smell funny:

I'm giving her fertilizers with every other watering. Does she look healthy to you? There are some dead spots on some of the leaves but I blame it on small space.
The SSH:

The buds are getting more visible, and there are a lot of them! Wouldn't you expect them to be bigger after 5 and a half week of flowering? I know sativas take longer to flower and all, but is this normal?

Two shady plants, one small and fat, the other tall and thin.

Those plants look good I'm not sure what the spots are but as long is its a contained incident I wouldn't worry a bout it too much...Keep an eye on it obviously.

And yes those plants look like they should...They are really showing their dominance as far as indica or sativa...I like the big bang I may end up trying it in the coming months.

I don't know if you know much about topping plants...Etc...But once you get this grow behind you look in to that for sativa plants. It will force them outwards instead of up so much since you have limited height...Only problem is the limited width as well, but you can always cut them back if need be. I would try to find strains that are short and stocky like the big bang for that area...Just my opinion.
