She has started to flower this last weekend. I've made it to this stage with no issues. Its exciting time for a first time grower. But I'm not kidding myself I have long way to go and anything could happen. I'm adding a exhale 365 this week to improve CO2 in the tent. Hope next few weeks go like the rest I've completed.

Grow Questions
Weddingday420 week 5 started grow question 7 months ago
So is it better to water at start of light time or right before dark time during flower stage? When should I water during flower stage is my question. Was wonder if water right before dark time it might give her a boost for better growth?
Thank you in advance for any help.

It doesn't matter if it's day or night when your watering the root zone. But only water when it's really needed. Since you have excellent access to your pot you shouldn't have any issues getting leaves wet with nutrient rich water and the light causing any type of burn spots on the leaves. Afghan Kush is a mildew resistant land race strain. Humidity will fluctuate between waterings. Your at a point in your grow where the plant is stretching which is normal it will allow plenty of light/air circulation around your buds. As far as inter node spacing genetics, excess nitrogen,low intensity lights, day/night temperature difference of more than 10 degrees all influence this aspect. You can start to remove fan leaves from the lower 1/3 of your plant and remove tiny bud sites also which will never get enough light to produce much. This will re- direct energy to the upper buds. Good luck your going to have some nice smelly,sticky Afghani nuggets when your done.

@Mrs_Larimar, Ya it's nice step up. She wouldn't be lonely if she wasn't in flower stage. I have a Shiva clone someone gave me waiting in the wing in my original setup plus I have 4 seeds germinating 2 BlueBerry, 1 Critical Purple Kush, 1 OG Kush. As soon as I harvest her they are going in the tent. It's going to be fun on next grow.
