Yo Ganja! What's the difference between their "Health State"? To me they both look healthy, they juicy green with even no yellowish leaf at the lower part of the plant!!!
My last grow in 2007 was very difficult, couldn't manage to bring them through the veggie phase without yellowing at least a couple of the lower leafs. I used Advanced Hydroponics as nutes, plus ph control, maybe the nutes were too complex to use for me!?! Now I'm kinda trying going back to basics. I am using Canna Ferts A&B on Coco-Fluff, no ph control because I remember a grow back in 1997 that went very, very well with that....The current Strain is called Sensi Skunk!!!
My Seedlings are about 3-4 weeks old 12 cm in height, overall they're good looking but I'm afraid sometimes that I don't get them through veggie properly, I want them to be as dark green as possible, cause they gonna get yellowish leafs at the end of the flowi anyway. They showing some signs of nute deficiency at the time though, one middle finger at the tip shows downcurling attitude, its just a couple of mm, looks like a slight phosphorus def to me. Another one shows some decent orange yellowish spots at the first pair of leafs, maybe potassium def. Overall the green of the leafs looks quite too bright to me. I don't want it to be sick weed in the end. What shall I do?%3c3ctar
P.S: I'm using a Electrox Greenline Energy Saving Bulb, 125Watt, 6500 K.

1. If flowering plants are not fed, they won't produce anything worth smoking and will probably die before harvest time.

2. If the flowering stage is extended, buds will often become more relaxing and 'stoney'. Overall potency is usually reduced. Some plants may out out 'bananas' (partial male flowers) in an attempt to self-pollinate.

What would be the minimum amount of time in extending flowering to get the relaxed stoney high and not lose to much potency?

Thanks Ganja

This is the chief problem with growing outdoors in the UK I guess - now that budding is underway there's no power left in the sun and the rains are coming.

Given that I cant control the weather if you have any other tips as to how to boost bud growth during this time I'd be keen to hear them

Yeh im having the same issue being in the UK myself. My plants are flowering and doing there thing, im feeding them and picking off all the dead leafs to avoid any kinda mold on my buds and to just simply make plant happy, But yeh getting colder, less power in sun, Im lucky in a sense as my plants are in pots so ive started to bring them in when its been raining too much or too cold, making sure they are in absolute pitch blackness etc.

mine in pots too cavedog but the marvellous spring we had means they're way too big to move. On the bright side buds are coming along apace - in the last week they've got sticky and lovely! had some windfall and OMG it's good to be able to smoke some homegrown!! Just wondering now how long to leave the other's for - i'm hoping to get another week or two growth out of them before harvest. Good luck with your crop man!

Emm, can to much wind from fan slow growth of the plants? Dumb question but came into my mind as my babies are growing really slow.

I mean does a lot of shaking slow growth down? .. In vege..

Not usually. If anything, a constant gentle breeze should strengthen stems.

Seedlings shouldn't be blown over or waving violently back and forth, of cours,e but a constant gentle motion is good for them.

Seedlings often seem to be growing with glacial slowness in the early weeks. Don't worry too much about this. Make sure conditions - especially lights, air movement and watering  - are at the correct levels, and veg growth should accelerate rapidly as seedlings grow more, larger leaves.

One caveat - in warmer rooms and at lower humidity, fans on higher settings can cause 'wind burn', specially if the are not set to oscillate. If certain leaves are constantly in the path of the breeze, it can strip the water from their surface, and they can become frazzled, dessicated or acquire a burned look.

Well, i'm having really slow growth of some other reason then. The growth has been going a bunch.. Else plants are fine so thats why I asked- the thing is pretty weird..

I think it coud be beacuse the roots wont get enough oxygen.. who knows.. But i'm to sketchy/ careful not to water in 2 days.. I think i'll give it a try..

Thanks for comment! New information, never heard of such as wind burn..
