Bud size is affected by many factors like light intensity, strain, overall plant health and temperatures 🌵
It looks like your night temps possibly got quite low and they look like they've probably been slightly too wet 🌧
Another thing is that outdoors you really want early finishing outdoor specific strains so when they're in the early and middle of flowering they get good sun and by early-mid September they're done.
Looks like you'll get some nice flowers in a few weeks though 🔥🌻

When i first started super cropping i didn't think i was doing it right because they wouldn't just curl up towards the light they would almost stand back up straight but this time i made sure i bent them enough so just the tops would curl towards the light

The short answer to that is no. The long answer involves epigenetics.
I've taken clones from clones of a strain for several years in the past with no noticeable change 🌱
Here's a link to a relevant article on a different website that explains this quite well 🤓

I have 2 plants that are not growing they are still green but just not growing in height here is a pic
Let them get very dry between waterings. Get yourself a moisture probe, they last for years and cost about $10, by the time it breaks you won't need it anymore.


Also the compost you're using looks a bit coarse and twiggy we have similar soil in the shops here too, this type of compost doesn't work well, you want a fine compost with no bits of bark/twigs in. The problem is that it holds too much moisture so you're going to have to be very sparing with the waterings.
If you want them to start growing at a decent pace you're going to have to let them dry out for 14-21 days to allow the roots to breathe and grow.
Next time invest in a better base compost for your mix, this is one of the most important factors in your soil grow.

Hi Rubin,

I have a couple tips i have learned and used.

1. A regular heating pad on 1 or 2 below your seedlings will warm them and help them grow
2. Water your plant with whatever water you use, and then lift the pot, bag, etc. and remember how much is weighs approx.,
go in next day and lift the pot. Is it still the same weight? Do not water. Is it half the weight? Water tommorrow.

I have been using this watering method and i have not gone wrong yet.
