yeah mine are mostly in the 60's and low 70s and its
growing rather slow. perhaps slow as your plants.

isnt it a little too early for nutes? :weedpoke:

Yeah, it was a little early for them. And on top of that, I had already mixed in a bag of miracle grow when I transplanted them. I was worried about over feeding, but the leaves haven't shown signs of that. I gave them a little bit of different things to try to find the defeciency. I think they will be ok. My other problem is the large pots for such small plants. :weedpoke:

" I moved them to pots that are WAY too large for them, but I HATE repotting, so I just want to do it once."

That's your slow growth problem right there . I used to do the same thing , for the same reason . Sometimes it worked okay , but sometimes the growth would slow to a crawl or even stop completely .
Nowadays I go from clear dixie cups , to 1 gal. pots , to 5 gal. pots . I wait until several roots are up against the edge of the pot before re-potting to next size up . There's a logical reason for working your way up to the big pot......but I can't remember what it is ! :crazy1: The plants just seem to get so involved in root-making that everything else slows down or stops .

Yeah, I know what you're saying. But I feel they have grown pretty good in the last week since I repotted. The hardest part about working with an overzized pot is the watering. And the larger pots also keep them further from the light causing slower growth.

i think one of the reasons for smaller pots is overwatering, since the plant isnt using all the water very fast and a bigger pot holds more water. the other is (some will disagree) that being slightly root bound keeps the plants nodes closer together. a little stress is good for them?

Actually the nodes are pretty close together and the plants are only 2-4 inches tall. :D
I was considering single colas but now after looking at it, I'm ready to chop the top and grow out four branches. Since the plant is low growing, I'll try to spread them to an open center. They have a sunburn cause the light is too close. I don't want to turn the heater $$ so I keep the light close. That's why they are growing low, they don't need to stretch for light. The room is cold so I'm trying to keep the roots warm. I think that's why they had a slow start.

Thanks. :weedpoke:
Do both guys up north smoke or just you? :hookah:

This is the first time I'm trying Miracle Grow. I mixed in one bag with the soil I had from last grow. I bought two bags but figured it was overkill. I like that they are getting thick for their height. Because of the Miracle Grow, I may not feed them till flower.

i have always been scared of using potting mix thats already fortified but it works if you are carefull i guess. plus its to expensive for me really. the place where i get my soil didnt have much of anything so they ordered it for me. just picked it up, 40lbs of composted manure and 40lbs potting soil for like $6 someting. i love ACE. we both smoke. i would consider ourselves light smokers anymore compaired to how either of us used to do it. just a joint in the evening usually.:rasta:

Cool, I got the MG from Home Depot cause it was cheap. I didn't want to pay for the good stuff at the local Hydro store. :shy: It has been 1 month since they started popping from the soil.

This is what's left from my summer Widow. I waited way too long. There's no way I will be able to stretch this bud till harvest. Summer harvest lasted me over 5 months of daily puffin and lots of sharing. I figured the gap in between will make me appreciate what's coming that much more. Weekly pics in a few days!

Hey haze, for those of us that have probably tried White Widow but never knew it's real name, what's it taste like? Is it Piney, Skunky, Citrusy, Fruity, Musky, or Whatever?

it was a bit on the piney side, and lil musky. it smelled strong.
mandalas site says taste matters on what soil was used?
i used the same soil, and you probably have alot of nutes for a while.
have u considered lst?

Thanks Fahtster!
Pro, I can't describe the taste, but I agree with what Nzo said. After several months, it still stinks every time I open the lid. I can't tell the difference between deodorant and cologne, but I'll say it smells skunky. Nzo, Yes I've been bending them to allow the light to penetrate and encourage more branches. I split one open again. :eusa_wall

Thanks Mr.M! :D I'll get back to you on that.

I have the plants around the light so that new growth comes from the side instead of the top. This allows me to keep the light lower and closer to the plants. I removed a lot of large healthy leaves to allow more light to the interior of the plant. I bend the tops back when I visit them to limit their upward growth. I pinched off some of the lower shoots that were shaded and growing slower. I think I will give them another 3 weeks before I switch to 12 hour darkness. :weedpoke:
