    Have the fan, for the time being,flowing just over the top of the plants so that the plants catch just a breeze but the bulk of the airflow goes over the top giving an air cushion between them & the light

    Wow these really took me by surprise today! Sprayed the domes this morning, come 2pm the biggest leaves are bent halfway against the domes and another node has grown. These seem to have got their game together! Happy days.

    Moved fan up although it's way too big, will look at a couple of clip on fans I think.

    Soil is dry like sand down to my second nuckle and pots feel light so I think it's watering time. I did (wrongly or not) fully water them until drain off 1 week ago, been spraying the surface round the dome until you said to stop M_C so waiting for the benefit of your knowledge my good man. Cheers

    How much water did you use & how much came back out the bottom? You probably didn't measure the run off though

    Whilst the clip on fans are OK, their life expectancy is short... so don't spend a lot on them!

    Happy days indeed, they seem quite happy

    I need to write things down, because now I'm expected to remember stuff!

    I think it was about 1/2 litre each and you are quite right I didn't measure it... a bit not loads - is that specific enough? lmao

    Cheers for the tip on fans. Maybe look at hanging the fan upside down somehow.

    Things are more to make sure that you get enough run of rather than not enough I'm not really fussed as long as you get, at the minimum, 10%. Whilst not so important at the moment, it will be important later on... so get into the habit from the start

    Run off flushes old nutes from the soil & refreshes things These little things are what changes an average grow into a good grow

    Excellent thanks for the great tip. Slow water, minimum 10% runoff and a cuppa in between I read in one of your past mentorings

    Plants both watered, about 1/2 litre each with over 10% run off. Pots nice and heavy now.

    The First Lady broke through 14 days ago and the second 12 days, here are some lights off pics. First one still very runtish looking and second one still not a picture of perfection but they both seem to be growing.

    The first one looks a little hot (excess nitrogen) but let's not overly worry about it as she looks like she's settling in (the new growth looks fine), 2nd one doesn't look so bad

    As they're photo periods, things are fine as there's plenty of time before flowering for them to sort themselves out - If they were autos I'd be giving them more attention

    So, all in all, we're fine mate

    Memory flooding back! Lol These plants are doing very similar things to last week when I watered them, day after plant 1 upturned some of its leaves and they burned. Both seemed reluctant to grow for a couple of days then shot up. Is the nitrogen toxicity causing the second plants' leaves to claw? These seem dry towards the ends of the leaves but not upturned and burned like the first.

    Yeah, a sure sign of too much nitrogen is when the leaves start to claw. This can often happen with seedlings as they settle into their soil, as long as it's nothing major then it's often easier just to let the plants ride it out than take preventative measures as when the plants grow they are able to deal with larger amounts of nitrogen.

    Growing well and adjusting to the soil by the look of it. No sign of any roots at the bottom of the pots as yet.

    I'm happy to go in whatever direction you want with this grow as long as they are finished before Christmas.

    Flowering is supposed to be 7/8 weeks and there's 14 weeks until xmas so in my simple mind I'm quite relaxed, maybe going away at xmas so could do with them being chopped by then.

    See, that's what happens when I have 6am starts... numbers get all muddled LOL

    We should have enough time to get a topping in & still cruise it

    We'll hang off the topping for another few days, wait for the next node... and then repot afterwards

    Watered today 1/2 l each with at least 10% run off. Plants are starting to get thirstier as this is six days now since last water. Plant 2's leaves were drooping and the pot was light, finger test dry. Also another thing I noticed which I've not read anywhere is if you gently squeeze the pots you can hear how dry the soil is, almost sounds crispy.

    Nah, don't squeeze the pots, just pick them up, you'll soon learn to tell if they are light & need water
