Cartman started grow question 3 years ago
My plants seems to grow healthy bit I have the feeling that they are way too small at the end of week 4. I am not sure what could be wrong. Maybe the lamp is hanging too low or I give too less water (500ml e2d). What do you guys think?

Hey there so i think your plants are looking healthy, that's the most important thing. You've also just entered into flowering so they will probably do some explosive growth here over the next week or so. Give it some nice strong potassium and phosphorus and boost up your light if need be and I'm sure they'll turn out great. With the watering, i noticed with my plants in fabric pots, the more established the plant was and the further towards flowering the more water they wanted. So like at least 1 gallon for my 3 gal pots each day roughly, or 1.75 gallon every 2 days.:v:

Looks good to me. Nice thick stem and plenty branches. Waiting for the stretch now and loads of flowers :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Hi mate, it seems to me like overwatering, i think you need to water more but less frequently and your plants will start to look happy.

Hi you can see taht you have the right distance to the lamp if you look at the nodes. between the nodes you should have space around 2 cm... if you have under 1 cm or less your lamp is to low. You topped and LST your Girls. thats what slows them down. But for me they are looking right in size( counting the toping) I wont do more at the moment with the plants, and just let them grow for a week and then look how they do, not all strains like topping.... cheers and have fun. 500 ml is a rich amount, but looks right if i look at the temperature. Apropos, watch the temps, at the moment its great, but try to keep them under 28 degree

Hi there Cartman, the growth rate of a plant depends on its metabolism and the metabolism of a plant is regulated by the Vapor Pressure Deficit which is basically the relationship between the temperature and the humidity. At this stage in it's life, you should have the temperature a bit lower like 25°C and the humidity a touch higher around 65%. So the lamp and the water are not the reasons but actually the environmental conditions are. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
