    Posted: 17 May 2012 at 15:17
Hi guys,

I was doing some work in my greenhouse today and decided to take a couple of pics of my vegetating ladies and post here.

These ladies are about 3 months old from seed. (Well, two are 3 months and two are 2 and a half.) Two of them are White Widows and two are White ICEs, all from White Label.

The medium is a soilless mix of my own design. The nutrient solutions are also from my own recipes; and mind you, their feed is by no means maxed out (I think they can handle at least 30% stronger feed.)  I'm keeping them in 11L pots and I think they must be pretty much pot bound by now. I have a feeling if I let these grow as vigorously as they seem to be able to, they will outgrow everything else I have in there. So for now I'm keeping them in chains %3c3coving%3c20it

Any comment or advice is greatly appreciated :)

@munzy: Thanks man coming from you it's a great compliment %3chumbs%20Up

@Melvan: Thanks, I would've loved to flip 'em right now before they get even bigger but I don't have the equipment to darken the greenhouse and also it would require daily maintenance and I might not be able to pull it off. So I guess I will let nature take its course.

Sorry, I forgot you were in a greenhouse. Have you rooted any cuts off those yet? Look like both have a real nice structure, might want to take steps to keep them.

Yes they do have nice structure, and all four of them.

I haven't taken any cuttings yet but I will definitely take a few from the lower branches this weekend or the next; to use in my next indoor grow.

I delayed cloning to get larger and stronger cuttings, and considering I have at least another 6-7 weeks of veg to look forward to, I reckon the plants will have ample time to bounce back. Any thoughts on that?

The WWs seem to be from the same pheno but the ICEs are probably from different phenos.

One of the ICEs is particularly nutrient hungry; I feed and feed and still those tips turn yellow %3c3cig%3c20smile I am interested to see how she performs with heavy feed under my 1000w

thanks for the input munzy,

Well I was kind of hoping to feast my eyes on one giant top cola; but now I think I do need some form of height control. The way these are growing; the extra 1m vertical space I now have left might very well prove insufficient.

I thought of topping them but I was afraid it might be too late and they won't have enough time to recover. Do you think they will recover in time?

Hello Organic i hope you are well.Very nice looking big plants.
I have a couple of white label super skunk mothers that i have been trying to keep under control and have now topped both twice and after about a week you would hardly notice apart from all the new growth sites.
I think you are going to need to do something as i think they will rapidly gobble up the metre of room you have left but like Munzy said i would take off quite a lot because its not worth taking a little.

Good luck with what ever you do and have a good evening.
Live and let live

I'd take top cuts too. The greener, fleshier the cut the better and faster they'll root. The more stick like the stem the harder it is for them to root. I would have taken cuts of these girls weeks ago.

Gosh, if you take those tops and root 'em you'll have pretty good sized plants almost right away. You could go ahead and let them run throughout the season just like these, add some nice extra weight to your harvest.

Lovely plants, wish i had a greenhouse! Dont be afraid to give them a good hair cut, i wouldn't take more than aprox 30% at any given time, like munzy says id take around a foot from the top and 6inch from nearly all the other grow tips, you will have nice round bushes come flowering time. Thats assuming your in the northern hemisphere and your plants are deffo in veg! Good luck with the rest of the season!

Thanks everyone for all the compliments and all the great input. %3c3chumbs%3c20Up

I guess my babies just got a pruning added to their schedule. I will definitely try to root the tops, it would be such a waste to throw them away.

I am in the northern hemisphere; and while my plants are full of preflowers and clearly mature, they don't look like they're flowering ahead of time.

So here's my plan: I prune and clone them this weekend; and next week I will re-pot them into 20L pots and let them explode. Any comments?
