Hey ! @Sunshine. The plan is to flower them outside in the sun. Next couple months are gonna have ideal temps for weed growth here so just makes more sense to make the most of it. I'm currently using 2 halogen bulbs 100 watt each. I

Is this the right time to transplant the big one ? Was waiting for it to get a bit bushy before I transplant it and switch to flower.

I'm currently giving the plants 20 hours of light, will it switch to flowering if I put it outside in the sun ? ( Currently getting 12+ hrs of light here everyday ).
Crime Have you ever checked out Wish .com they have a lot of lights some are free just pay shipping the only problem is it takes about 1 month a bit slow in shipping to receive product I myself pay through PAYPAL their is no worry they are honest I have been doing business with them for over 3 years and have had no problems wife buys a lot of shoes from them (just like a woman)⛸

@Sunshine need some help. I think I have a bug infestation. What should I do ? Also, do you think the plant has started flowering ? I don't see any white hairs or sacs near the stipules.

I've removed the bugs from the plant and killed them. Checked all leaves both above and below and removed any signs of eggs. Sprayed the plant with diluted soap water. Will get some neem oil tomorrow and spray the plant with it.
Will that be enough to eradicate the infestation ?

Eeewwwww! Mean looking bugs eh. If you just noticed them you should be ok, no damage...good spot!
Hard to say what they are though, almost scale-looking, but not it. May I suggest going easy with any insecticides on such a young plant, could burn her. I would give her another soapy clean in another 3 days just to wash off any missed eggs that may have hatched into a new cycle & residual neem. Good luck!

before they start flowering you need to mix up your neem oil and soap and really drench them under and on top of leaves also make sure you soak top of ground I did this two days in a row and never saw any more bugs it works. really soak them down. they will come out of it perky and fresh I use the Verdana cold-pressed neem oil purchased from Amazon. follow mixing instructions.

Getting thicker and bigger everyday ! Found some ladybugs on the plant today. And a handful of those brown bugs. Removed the brown bugs and sprayed some diluted soap water on the leaves.

@Sunshine I want to flip her to flowering now, how do I do that ? She's been out for a couple weeks now and I don't see any signs of flowering.

What is the day length (light hours) at the moment? and are the days getting shorter or longer where you are?
To trigger flowering she is going to need 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness at the same time everyday which might mean bringing her inside or building a frame with a cover to limit day length/light hours :)

Currently the day length is 12:30 hours and the days are getting longer by the day. Is there any other workaround to moving her everyday ?

With photo plants you're going to have to limit the day length and force darkness somehow. She will start to flower under 12-14 hours of light but as the day length increases beyond that she will start to revert to veg.
You could leave her outside for a month or so until the day length hits 14 hours then institute 12/12.
A frame with some light proof sheeting could be constructed but it may just be easier to bring her inside for the dark phase? Next time consider autos which might be a better fit for you.

@Sunshine it's a lady. She's going into flowering. 74717472

The problem is there are still some bugs on the plant, I removed 10-12 of those brown bugs again. Is it safe to use neem oil on her ? Today I also saw some ants roaming around near the top canopy.

I removed a lot of infected leaves from the plant. Can I take any clones from her now ? Or is it too late ?

@Sunshine I Supercropped her today to even the canopy 20190404_145523.jpg
After supercropping

I pulled both the branches down at the same time and this happened. Should I tie her up with something or let her heal on her own ?

One of the branches I topped have three flower sites growing. Should I let them grow or will it be too tight for three colas ?
