Another week has elapsed and both these girls are just over 6 weeks old now. From the advice of TaNG I received last week I gave each girl a small helping of vegetative nutrient again and saw them both restore a darker green colour by the next day.
The ruler in my photos is 30cm, and Bubblegum is around 40 cm while Northern Express is sitting closer to 33. Both are trained for an even canopy and I think that Bubblegum would be around 60cm if she wasn't tied down.
Northern Express' buds are developing fast, and over the last week I have seen her trichromes developing noticeably. Hopefully there is still some size to come on her buds! Quality over quantity though, i'll be happy with whatever I get, and she's smelling lovely, a sweet, piney scent.
The Bubblegum supposedly takes a few weeks more than the N.E to finish and as such her buds have yet to start swelling up. I do notice some hints of trichromes starting to appear, and judging by the size of her developing bud sites, she has a bit more in store for me than her counterpart.
Today I also bought a new grow tent which i've just finished setting up and transferring everything in to. A bit more room and the plants seem happier already! Pics to come next week.
Happy growing everyone!
