Week 4! 3/9

Update:

Training-
LST is in full effect. I have gradually been tightening the twine a little each day and now the plant has grown into its final position. The stem is strong and well shaped and the leaves are lovely as ever.

Watering-
I have reduced its water and feed intake by 50%. Have seen substantial improvement in color.

Update 3/12

The romulan is at about 85% health as some of its lower leaves were too dark and some of its higher leaves were hungry but not thirsty. So for the romulan, I increased its food per water dosage slightly and am almost completely confident that’ll fix the few yellow leaves. As for the lower leaves I defoliated the 2 lowest branches as they were almost dead anyway and were probably draining the plants nutrients to try and repair/keep them alive. By this time tomorrow I will know what will have worked and adjust accordingly.

Grow Questions
YoungSmoke week 2 started grow question 2 years ago
what company should I order seeds from and what strain would you recommend?
:wave: Hi friends!
I originally wanted to start with multiple clones but ended up only being able to get a single clone last minute. Now I have A LOT of unused space.
What seeds/company would you recommend buying? I’m looking for quick/large yields, indica dom, and wallet friendly

Seedsman.com is your best bet. They carry strains from many breeders, as well as their own strains. They have great customer service, stealth shipping if necessary, and speedy shipping . If you are in the US, they have a new distribution center and they ship from the UK to their distro center and then ship to you directly. Reduces the shipment problems and after 4 orders from them, I am more than pleased. They also include freebies with every order. In addition, their site layout and strain information is actually better than some of the breeder pages. The product info and reviews are very helpful. Now to answer about specific breeders...if you want big fat juicy buds, look no further than Barney's Farm. Everything I have grown from them has been a huge producer. Other breeders have some great strains, but you can see in my diaries that BF strains outshine the rest in my experience. Good luck!

Hey, buddy. Don't worry, the young leaves are lighter in colour than the fully formed leaves.
Your plant looks very healthy to me.

Hi @YoungSmoke normally the femenized plants start to flower in 6-9 weeks depending on the growth of each one. your plant needs to stretch a little bit better, the light goes up more and it will stretch more in search of the light, I would wait 2 to 3 weeks to put it in bloom. 10 days before you start flowering, start giving flowering feeds in a dose slightly below the minimum indicated and gradually increasing the feeds. good luck in flowering mate :four_leaf_clover::pray::+1:
