Couple of beginner questions
Still on my first outdoor grow and deciding if and when to move from balcony to guerilla grow. I believe I am currently at the end of week 7 after planting from seed (Auto Feminized Early Skunk)... I have a few more beginner questions I hope someone can help with 🙂
1) The plant is now about 50cm and has what I think are 5 nodes where two branches come out either side of the main stem. As you go up from the soil the stems at each node alternate between East-West and North-South. Once you get past the 5th node it seems the plant is forming a top? How can I tell if the plant has already reached its maximum height? I was assuming this plant would grow to 2m but if it can stay around 50cm then maybe I can keep it on the balcony... Maybe the fact that I kept the plant in a 17cm wide (13cm deep) pot has restricted the maximum height?
2) It seems the plant is starting to show buds at the top (if it is the top) and at the 4 node points below it. Should I now keep an eye on these trichomes I am reading about? or am I still too early? After how many more weeks do you think the plant would be ready for harvest? My daytime working desk is next to my balcony and I occassionally get that familiar aroma wafting past the window :-).... is there anything I can do to help cover that? I've tried to put my normal kitchen herbs around the plant (basil, thyme, sage, rosemary) so they might provide a little cover but not sure they can fight the little lady in that department...

Hows it going mate.
If flowers are starting to form, it wont get much bigger, you may be able to keep it on the balcony. But the smell is hard to cover, you're already doing the right thing by using other plants to cover the smell. But our doors there isn't much you can do about it
Some strains grow crazy tall, some dont, the small pot will definelty make a difference to the height too. Lets see a pic?
Here you go...
how big is your pot ? you did any training ?
she is cute
@rng - Thanks, my first grow 🙂
The pot is 17cm wide and 13cm deep so it is pretty small... which has worked well for me as I have been growing in stealth mode outdoors... I would be perfectly happy if she stayed at this height 🙂
The yield on a plant that size won’t be gigantic but you can get a harvest. I run plants in a coffee mug for fun and it yields .25 to 1.0 ounces. Temple Grower runs mini plants in .6 liter pots to fill in empty spaces and routinely pulls about half an ounce off them or more.
