Pictures when I get back from work tonight.
Potted them all up last night and ran out of time. Watering much less has definitely caused more dense rooting, didn't think they were rootbound until I pulled them out of the pots.

Only been lightly watering and hadn't fed at all until middle of last week, when I noticed they were looking a little unhappy.
Should have taken pics of the roots for you all but I used a larger pot last time I did pot up and the plants are a little bug and unwieldy for that but the roots looked good. pH has been good from runoff and soil tests.

Pics tonight, might actually have been getting rootbound. Just didn't look big enough to so, but watering less often has had the desired result, apparently.

I'm starting to think it's the mold and mildew in the apt. Not to mention the temps. The heating in my apt is thru the ceiling for some dumb reason and there hasn't been anyone living downstairs for the last year or so and the floor stays cooler tho it is carpeted.

It just dawned on me as I have a back closet that I tried to use and nothing ever did well back there. I thought it was because I had too much going on and wasn't taking as good of care of them. And it wasn't insulated as well as the closet in the middle of the apt. that stays warmer.

May go back to just having the one room. Slows things down but better to wait an extra month if the results are better.

5 plants total, pics taken from a couple angles.
Will take better, individual shots later tonight. Just trying to juggle work, holidays (and I don't even have much going on! ) and my garden . They got a little root bound fast but I expect they'll perk up.

Well, my ladies really must have been root bound.
And I always think they are too small to flower until I go 12/12 and they take off.
They are on their way and looking good, spending a lot of time bending stems to keep them from getting too big on me (as usual :-) )
Will continue to post pics as things progress, about a week and half in and the Phantom Cookies and Chernobyl look like they will make beautiful flowers.
:-)

Shadow, this thread helped me. I know the problem of them getting so big you have to tie over the tops to keep them out of the light.
I had to do the same thing to just before putting into flower .

The only positive thing about that was the upper side branches really took of and hopefully will increase the yield. They often get so heavy with bud that I have to use bamboo stakes to hold them up till harvest.

Nice plants hope you get a great harvest.

I've gotten some spectacular results breaking the tops over at a right angle Heirloom.

Things are looking good and clones are rooting, just waiting on the phantom cookies to take and they'll all be done.
Will post new pics this weekend. Really looking forward to seeing how the P. C. and Chernobyl flower out.

Plants are looking nice, they're good and healthy.
I think we have it figured out. All clones except for the Phantom Cookies have taken root and I took a few lower pieces and have them in the rooter in case the previous never do root.

Here's some better pics.
Here's a couple shots of the Shishkaberrry on the left and Phantom cookies on the right.
Putting them in the tub as I prep for people in the apt for the 6th time in as many months. Am getting good at knocking down the room, hiding my babies and putting it all back up.

I have had to hide them before. One day we won't have to until then.

Sad thing is that it is a legal state but WA doesn't want folks to be able to supply themselves and want you to buy from their overpriced stores.
So the struggle continues.
There is a push to allow 6 mature plants but it is more the new apartment management that I have to avoid. The owner knows we are medical and allows me to grow but he is old and hired a company to manage and their leases are full of stuff you can't do, so I just continue to do it all the same way as I did when it was all illegal.

I wish you well. I understand management can interfere. I hope you guys can grow even only six.

Like you we all won't let the Law stop us from growing.

Our movement is slowing growing.

 a good year to you

Will post up some new photos soon.
All is looking good, buds are getting nice and frosty and the next round is all looking good. Even my last ditch cuts of Phantom Cookies look like they are finally pushing roots, which is awesome as I can't get any more cuts of her.
Having figured out what was causing such poor grows the last year and a half, I can look forward to refining my schedule and hopefully get back to sticky harvests.

Thanks for following along everyone , will post current pics and the finished product in a month tops.

I hope all goes well Shadow for you and the rest of us . Good to here you got clones.

I have  gone through good grows and troubled grows. This thread helped me . I have been thinking that not talking to others has caused me to slip in some way , forgetting things that then result in a problem.

I used to have no problems.

I feel my current grow has greatly improved from watching others grows and interacting  through posting. This has helped me to remember or re learn .

I can't thank you and Hashman ( others un named ) enough for helping me to save a special plant, that cost so much to get I could never get again.

 peace

When I have a problem up top that I can't figure out I check out what's going on down below. Have you looked at the roots yet?

Always good to see you Diver :-)

Not only did I get to figure out what has been causing me so much grief, I've hit upon other areas that need a tad more care and attention. Looking forward to tasting when the time comes but excited for the next round as these little ladies haven't had all the problems this round has had.
Much healthier, busier ladies to start off with.
Will take some pics tonight since I have plant chores to do.
