Is there anything I could have done different up to now to make the plants better?

The plants looking great, the only thing i see that might have been cool is using bigger pots, 5 gallon, 7 gallon. I personally think that plants given bigger containers can thrive and become bigger plants. Whether this is true to all strains or all varieties (auto/photo) i do not know. I wanna do a side by side of same strain same conditions different pot size and find out. :blush::v:

Just because you asked for. Its always something you can do better, in evry grow. Thats the nice thing. my kollegues mentioned a few things and i add one thing. Think about your watering habits. Your plants look alwaysa bit droopy. I would tak the pot lifting mehthod. After traspnating them into final pot. weigh the pot and feel how heavy he is. then water your plant. Then wait until the weigh is the same before you water again

Hey there @Hoodie31. Absolutely there was a few things you could have done, but the biggest thing is training. Try to hold your plants down with ties so the she stays even across the top. This allows light to hit it all evenly and it grows much more even. This gives you a better average bud size! You will notice a MASSIVE increase in growth throughout the entire grow if you LST (low stress train) the plant this way. Check out the SCROG method if you want help. :sunglasses:

More training, so to get a more even canopy. TOPing and some LST (or SCROG) will make wonders yield wise. Before adding PK, wait at least 2 weeks so the stretch is out of the way. Careful with over watering, 1 gallon of water a day? for 3 gallon pots? Way too much.

Hey @hoodie31 , killer lights, killer set up, i'm guessing they have crazy penetration if you're keeping them that far away... i do see some stretching but bigger plant means more space for bigger bud right? You can always do something better though right? The most difficult thing to do, is to get VPD just right to maximise growth. This will help also in flower. If you're not looking at VPD, maybe it could help you tune in even more. What regulates the plants metabolism and how fast it grows is called the vapour pressure defict or VPD for short. This article presents the concept in detail : https://www.autoflower.net/forums/threads/vpd-vapor-pressure-deficit-explained.64510/ this one has the charts you need to see where you stand.... if you tune in VDP, your plant is growing at optimal rates, and that means a better final product. hope this helps ! :rocket:
