Buds Buddy, thanks for the insight, I have noticed the waxy dark green and clawed leaves have gone away, as you said, after a few more good soakings. I know I am going to be full to the brim and penetrating light may become an issue, I'll just have to address it as I go, part of the learning curve. I have a 600 W HPS and ton of CFL's stored away I can use if needed down the road. Maybe next time I will get smaller pots to limit the growth and cut back on the numbers too. Once I establish a perpetual grow cycle with a veg tent too, I won't need so many either. I have been thinking of dropping a net in, but figured I am just going to let them go and use some LST where needed.
Thanks for your input, I appreciate all the help I cn get.

Before the stretch began




Thanks to the Moderator that cleaned up the messy post, here are the pictures of the set up and the three strains, just before I went to flower. They have now been receiving 12-12 for 5 days and I will get some updated pics this week-end.

My experience is you want the roots to fill the pot they are growing in before you flip. They will be sensitive to overwatering because of this. Plants trying to expand there root system and flower at the same time just never seem to take off for me. So I don't think you are going to have a problem with those but we will see hahaha. Nice clean setup. Do you have any experience with those strains ? Jack and super lemon haze might be big stretchers ? Do you know who the seedbank is on the green crack ?

Hi Cabtharekllus,
I learned it would have been better to not go straight to the final pot size after the fact, newbie mistake. I haven't grown soil in decades and last few times did hydro, I am just going to power on and hope for the best. I acquired all three from "The Strainbank",(https://www.strainbank.org/) a collective here in California as rooted clones. I veged them for 2 weeks, I wanted to go 2 more but if these go 10 weeks which is possible that will be mid December and I will be going out of town so hoping not to go too long. It is interesting, jack took off right away, the SLH was clawing and not growing the first week, but has since picked it up, it looks like it will be stretchy, I am going to have to LST those 2. And the green crack was a low bush, really branchy but is now stretching quite a bit, they looked the best from the get go, even though the JH grew well, it had waxy leaves, like it was mag def, but that has cleared up. Someone mentioned on another thread about plants showing what looked like mag def under LED's? Interesting, but all the girls are looking better than a week ago in all regards.

Wow quite a selection of strains they have there. You are lucky in that you do not have to search you know what you are getting. Do you get to burn one before you select lol ?

LOL, no I did that myself, with my Hot soil, but after a few flushing's, it got better.
By moving around our country over the years, I have learned to appreciate all California offers, my other hobby is salt water aquariums, specifically reef aquariums, corals, anyway you can get so much here in Cali, other states must rely on mail order, same for clones, in that California has many suppliers to choose from, and that is nice.

After looking everywhere I found your grow!

The plants are looking good in my opinion.

Not sure if the pots *have* to be that big though.
If I read correctly, you acquired clones.
Then vegged for a week or two ?
Three gallons would be perfect IMO.

I've been getting my advice from a grower on IG.
https://www.instagram.com/closed_loopman88/

He works for a recreational licensed grow op.
They're growing monsters in 3 gallon pots and killing it.
His pics were amazing.

If you're worried about the soil...
You can always check the run off.
Use RO water with PH 5.9 and water the plants.
Grab the water from the bottom that goes through.
This should tell you 75% of any potential issues.

That's what he recommended for me.

He seems very knowledgable and I sent him a gift card (through email) for his time.

I don't think you will have any major issues then run.

Looking forward to seeing you crush this grow.

Sending good vibes your way...

IOdineAlf - Thanks for searching me out and the link, very much appreciated. You are right on all counts, clones, vegging time and cloth pots. I’ll definitely use smaller ones next time and also graduate up in size and let them fill smaller pots before transplanting into larger ones. I have been wondering about checking run off, I’ll do that, I already PH my RO water, I noticed the water machines at grocery stores really vary, plus my area has notoriously hard water.
Again thanks for finding my thread and all the good info.have a good weekend

Thanks for the welcome

Agent Pothead - Thanks for all the tips, I am getting your messages, but as suspected, I am locked out till I hit 50 post, shouldn't be too longer, only 16 more to go.
