This ladies are 5 months old and they started flowering. I don’t see how to increase growth at this point. Any suggestions?

Thank youWelcome to FC @HyperB
The soil mix you are using is your main problem and this grow will unfortunately amount to a very small harvest if you continue with this soil.
To get good results bin your soil and start again/repot the plants with a new more suitable soil mix, there are plenty of soil recipes in the grow faq but any good quality potting compost with 25% perlite and 15% vermiculite will work.
Once repotted revert to veg lighting for a few weeks until vigorous growth is observed then switch to flower (12/12).
It's worth reading about super soils as these are the easiest and most fool proof path to high quality flowers.
If you'd like any further info or have any questions just shout
Thank youI feel part of the problem could be 2 areas lighting and what you are feeding them I use a 1500 led to 3000 led and I have a new crop about every 3 months if you check out my forum grow you might get an idea of my grows, but I am with mbnmv that's a crazy long time
It's not ideal, you really want to use a fine potting compost as your base preferably organic and add perlite and vermiculite to that to improve structure and the other amendments @CrimemasterGoGo mentioned above to make a good soil mix.
I myself use miracle grow super soil from wall mart I have reused it 5 times now and still get a fairly good harvest I think it doesn't seem to wear out but I do add a bit of new every time, I also put pebbles on top to keep flying pests out also it keeps the top from packing down or getting crusty I believe it lets the air penetrate the surface (my belief) better.
don't rely on indoors and no bugs mine have always been grown indoors and I have gotten bugs 2 separate times as a matter of fact if I think of it this week I will take a picture of my bug strips I very seldom see these little buggers flying around but they are their. I believe they come in with our fruit and veggies from the store I also put a couple of daddy long leg spiders in my tents they web in the corners an catch quite a few nats their self another DM (dumb experiment} I do that also every time I am digging in the yard I find a few night crawlers and I put them in my tubs let nature help.All mines enclosed,no bugs, indoors, somehow got nightcrawlers,in some,free nutrients
