    It looks healthy to me. It could be a little darker green. Do you have an area in your house that gets particularly hot at a certain time of day each day? If so, put the plant there and then remove it back to it usual place when the room starts to cool off.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. A room that gets to much sun and therefore over heats?

    You should do what you think is best, coubob. I really am no expert at this. I grew a few plants. I didn't do anything special to them. At least I don't remember doing anything special to them. That's the extent of my experience. It seems to me that you got past the most delicate stage and that it should be smooth sailing from here on. I just left them alone. Not because that was my intention but I would forget about them. lol Same with my veggie garden. I still yielded a bountiful crop.

    This...^

    Especially when growing something new for the first time I don't do anything special or overly micro-managing to my garden plants, for instance this past season was the first time I grew broccoli...So I let the 4 broccoli plants I started from seed grow through their full cycles, I didn't harvest anything but nurtured the plants and took care of them like I do for the rest of the garden...I wanted to see the full cycle of these broccoli and observe them so next season whwn I grow them again I'll have a better idea of what to expect and when to harvest the crop...This may take more time than reading up about them and following written instruction but I learn more about the plants and have better first hand experience taking care of them next season...

    I have not did that much to them since i put it in a 8 gallon pot, the potting soil i had left over when i put a crape myrtle in the front yard is what i used to get the thing started than i had use dirt from the back yard,from a spot i used for my composting. I put up some aluminum foil just now and noticed i had another sprouting come up that was from the lemon larrys, i didnt think they were coming up so i dumped there dirt in the 8 gal. Only one out of 4 come up and it died.

    P.S. The foil will most likely darken up the leaves too. :D

    I've encountered a number of panicky people who want grow lights, etc because they think they're going to be farmers all of a sudden because the world is coming to an end.

    You're the only one I've seen growing anything so far that actually makes sense :)

    :wacko2:Think i have the auto flowering type of (Wedding Cake), now i have to change things up, so i`m switching my light to 12/12 instead of 18/6. and lowering the temp. Apparently I`m already in week 1 of flowering. those white hairs i seen at week 3 was tri combs. if it dont work out i`ll go back to 18/6 light

    What happens if it flowers? Same thing as when it goes to seed?

    How Can You Identify Female Autoflowers? | Autoflowering Cannabis Blog
    After the first preflowers appear you can just sit back and let the plant grow. These green balls with two white hairs will start to appear in larger and larger quantities every day.

    These calyxes will be the most abundant at the top of the cannabis plant. And they will start to form the basis of what will be the flower of this female plant or as we also call it – the BUD.

    [​IMG]

    Each of these calyxes is a “seedbed” and potentially each of these tulip-shaped green balls can grow a seed if they get pollinated by male plant pollen.

    Basically, if a pollen grain gets on that white hair then it slides in the calyx and the plant starts forming seed so if there is no pollen that could create seeds that female will create more and more calyxes to “capture” some pollen grains.

    When there is no male plant around these female plants doesn’t get pollinated and will be a seed-less plant that is the real reason why growers grow only females. When the female plant grows and matures there will be more and more calyxes appearing everywhere and also the resin glands will start to appear more and more.

    Autoflowering plants produce resin glands to avoid their seeds to be eaten by animals and to protect them from solar ultraviolet radiation so that they can survive the winter and grow again in the spring but the plant doesn’t know that there are no seeds in the bud and will produce the calyxes and glandular trichomes until they get harvested.

    When the end of the autoflower female life cycle gets closer the plants start to really swell up those calyxes and the bud will get more and more resin glands and will look frosty and white. This process happens because the plant knows it will soon die and starts to protect the seeds inside the bud but we exploit this response to get those frosty buds that we love!

    Hermaphrodite plant with both male and female
    I only have one plant. so no pollination
