It's so really weird... Like it's gone straight into flower

It looks like the roots didn't like the manhandling too much when you separated them. That's my guess.

Damn weird looking seedlings those I agree. Maybe they're siamese and can't live without each other 😆

Potted #3.1 & #3.2. They're getting there, despite the trauma. Hopefully the saying, "what don't kill, only strengthens", applies.

The other 5 are going strong, although I think I underestimate the LED's, and got some leaf burn.

No nutrients yet, just some natural compost in the mix, so can't be that.

Yea man... For seedlings, you could keep those lights around 2-3 feet or around 100cm... Lower them from there if there is stretch.. Bring them closer once you start your feeding schedule.

Diary Update, week 4

Just got back after weekend, plants are thriving and light burn much less noticeable. Still no nutrients, the compost in my medium is sufficient until they are in final pots.

Thanks guys, although I think this growth is down to genetics, which are obviously superb. They do look more like indica leaves, but @Totemic said the sativa dominance will show. 

Some better pics

@Dank they're on 20/4.

Transplanted most of them into Autopot XL's (25L). Also install home made air dispenser. I pump air directly into the root zone during flowering.

Very nice roots on that plantjie, pumping air into the rootzone is genius, the plants must really love it! 

You are putting ideas in my head here @stretchy !! I have a old aquarium air pump lying around, quite a ol heavy duty one :-flyinghiused more for AACT, but it has more than one outlet, so could run 1 pot and 1 AACT bucket.

Thanks for those extra bits of info, very nice growing sir! :-bow

Diary Update, week 5

5 of the plants have been re-potted into their final homes. Gave them first nutrient watering, at about 0.9 EC. I use Green House Powder Feeding (Long Flowering). Turned up the MH lights to 600w.

20190624_184639.thumb.jpg.aaa434fac1595a4ad14ccebf2f4eebef.jpg

The twins are going to be re-potted later this week. They're trying out the newly re-commissioned veg / mom tent.

It might be just the time you take your photos, but the way your plants look like balls with your leaves pointing down... 

Do they perk up when it's lights on time?

Hey @CreX, I think because last night I'd just got back from weekend and they needed watering. They looking better already. Also there's virtually no stretch, they're very compact. I make my night from midnight to 4am.

They are looking really good man! Big fat and healthy! I'd like to see another Pic 😁

Plants are doing well. I'll (hopefully) start topping later this week.

They have also been connected to air pump, into root zone. @CreX Not sure how effective this is, but as up till now I've been watering using auto-pot's bottom feeding system, and worry about them drowning. I haven't yet decided if i'm going that way for this grow, as if they fault, they flood, everywhere... So it's more a case of, if you've got it, use it. I may run a test separate to the competition to see if it works.

Pictures of the plants:

Some Info about my setup:

Location; Smallish room in an outbuilding.

2x tents; Main Flower Tent is 150/150/200, mounted about 1m high, on a raised platform, on castor wheels. Veg/Mom tent is 120/70/165, mounted on a home made grow box that needs some work. Also on castors, because it's a small room... (I call it Flower tent, but it's currently doing veg duty).

Lights; Main Tent; 2x 600w HID (currently MH) in cooltubes & 2x Nova LED S8 360w; Veg Tent; a 400w MH & homemade x10 T8's, but using LED tubes.

20190623_215807.jpg.0781595796233b0929dbfc54f9401c77.jpg

Ventilation; 2 x 6" inline silent-series fans expelling air from the tents, out the room, an a 6" fan blowing into main tent. I really do need aircon for summer, as the heat kills everything. Either that or grow outside with heat resistant strains.

Not sure what my humidity is, as my meter needs replacing.Luckily, where I am, this time of year is really dry, so shouldn't be a problem.

EC at 1.4. Not sure what PH as that meter also needs replacing, but powder feeding is supposed to be PH tolerant, or so they claim.

That's all...

Diary Update, week 6

Moved all the Chocolope into the veg tent as I'm switching my flower tent  to 12/12. Means less light, but need to start next flower cycle. 

20190701_173534.thumb.jpg.43b4c6d8530673194731c5780b5f2b8e.jpg

Topped the bigger 3, and I'm thinking #2 is going to be my competitor, assuming it's fem. Not only is it biggest, it's also got the tri-branching thing going. Means more heads = more deliciousness.

The twins are looking good, especially compared to photos from beginning of June. Amazing plant...

Close-up of #2 top nodes. I'd always thought you couldn't tell sex before flowering, and mainly grow feminized. If anyone can tell me different, I'd love to hear...
