Also I have this one plant that I started from seed. I have grown it
under fluorescents and it is 6 feet
tall. I cut it down a little
so it will fit in my
closet...but it keeps growing like crazy...I want it
to flower it has the characteristics of a female even
though it is tall. I
think that maybe it is getting a
little too much light from the bedroom light so I have
been putting it in the bathroom at night and closing
the door. Is this bad?.
I heard that when you move
the plants you are stressing them.
This thing doesn't
even really fit under the light any more.
I need to
whack off at least 6-8 inches for it to fit.
that hurt it too?. This plant is beautiful and it
branched into three when it was young, if it is indeed
a female I think it will be a great yield.
another one it flowered right away and is doing
awesome but I guess they are all different.
can tell the sex of a plant by looking at where the branches come
out of the main stalks and if there are calixes with a split hair
poking out of them then you have a female plant. Marijuana plants
are pretty hardy plants but moving them around does stress them
especially when they are in the flowering stage. The stalk gets more
brittle and the weight of the buds bouncing around will break the
stalk. Plants do allot better if they aren't disturbed.
While I got you one the line one more question...I am
doing this all with fluorescents...All the plants have
grown at least 5 feet. One
turned out to be male the
other female, and is budding really nicely but
slowly, the THC is practically dripping off this one.
But for flowering should I maybe bite the bullet and
invest in HID. Or can
you successfully keep cropping
out with fluorescents. It
seems to be working I am
just in an apartment. But
I want to do this right.
You can crop with just fluorescents but you
will only achieve a low level of THC compared to the results from a
400-1000w HID. The more lumens of light there is the better the
plant will produce and the higher the THC content.
