Hey everyone, new to Percy's, and new to growing. I would like to start by saying that this is my first grow and any input or information from more experienced growers is more then appreciated if you see something I'm doing wrong.

A little about my grow. 

I have a 3x3 tent in my basement 

600w budget led light (I can not dim the light, no dimmer switch or dial)

And my most recent purchase an AC Infinity T6 fan 

Growing in 5 gallon plastic buckets... I know that this is not the best option and I also realize now that having a white bucket is not idle for my roots... but all in the learning process. 

These plants were grown from seed. And since they're bag seeds I do not know the name or strain.

Welcome to Percy’s @beardedporkchop. Looks like your grow is going well. When are you planning to flip those to flower?

@beardedporkchop welcome to Percy’s mate , your grow is coming along a lot better than my first one did 👍and now you’ve found the best forum out there for home growers as well 😉 I kept some bag seed I found for years before I gave growing my own a go , might dig them out and pop them if they turn out like yours have lol 👍

@stootie I'm thinking of going with some fabric pots for my next grow, from what I hear from all the pros, air pruning is important

@gelert I've been saving (collecting) all the bag seeds I've come across for years all in the same container. I have absolutely no idea what I'm growing, or what will come next I want to try some good genetics on the next run.

@beardedporkchop Hey bud, welcome to the forum!  Plants are looking happy so far.   From the pictures they don't look to be that far into flower though.  It has been 3 weeks of 12 hours on 12 hours off on your lights?  If so you may have a light leak issue keeping them in veg state. Take a pic along the stem where the branches meet for us, that will be where first signs of pistols or sacs will be. 😀

being my first grow I don't know if I have male or female plants.

When you flip it over to 12/12 to initiate flowering it will become obvious. Hope it’s a girl.

@shonuff it's actually been 2 and half weeks since I flipped to flower, also my Temps are around 70 degrees, I noticed during the entire grow I had low Temps (possibly because im growing in my basement) when i decided to flip to flower i gave the plants a bit longer night cycle in order to flip my light schedule to be on during the night time, is it possible my entire grow has been slower because of my lower Temps. And I will definitely post up more pictures so we can try to see if I have males or females

@beardedporkchop, yeah if you could get something a bit clearer. It's hard to tell, it looks like there might be a pistil but can't tell for sure. Since your this far into flower that's not to good. To me the longer they take to show the more chances that it will do something stupid. I just had a big one that went two weeks into flower with no show and then she finally popped, Both. Male and female. She was 44" in dia. From Seedsman, freebie. oh well. 

But one thing I can see is that there are huge Spikes, at the node intersections and that's what mine just had. I don't know if this is a trait of the male plant or if it just strain or what, But I noticed it on mine and now I see it on yours and your also late. You could cut the light by 1/2hr or more and see if that helps, but if it doesn't happen soon, idk. Good luck man, hope this helps.
