100 Watt CFL Grow / Update#4: What Should My Marijuana Plants Look Like After 3 Weeks?
Today I would like to give you a before/after view of the 100Watt CFL grow cabinet. It’s useful to have a watermark with which to compare your grow progress.
Be sure to check out our Ebook here on itunes if you need help with all the details for starting your home marijuana grow (lighting, enclosures, choosing seeds, soil, watering and fertilizing schedules, transplanting, trimming/topping, and much much more). Now, on to the entertainment –

And this is how the plants look today, after 3 weeks of vegetative growth:
Notice the very Indica-dominant plant in the back right corner. That is one of our Afghan Kush x Double Gum crossbred plants (the other AK x DG is on the back left). I sincerely hope that plant turns out to be a female! Here ‘she’ was a week ago:
All the plants have taken on a deeper, darker green hue – a good sign of healthy roots and a strong plant overall. I must say, the plants are all flourishing under the CFL lighting. For you budget home growers out there, take this as encouragement – pay attention to the details of your grow, prepare well, and you can look forward to a great harvest on a shoestring budget.
In one week, we’ll switch to 2700K lighting and a 12/12 schedule to “let the plants know” that autumn is approaching and it’s time to flower. We’ll have some immature buds for you to peek at by the end of next month, and I’ll keep you posted each week.
