I've had a bagseed plant on 12/12 for just under 3 weeks now in my flowering cupboard. This will be the first time I've successfully flowered and harvested a plant
My one concern is that the flowers are growing very slowly (based on photos I've seen of '3 week flowers'). There are several nodes with a decent number of white hairs growing from them and the ones at the very top are almost starting to look bushy. The only problem is that they are nowhere near forming the large, messy tangle of white hairs I've seen in photos of other plants.
Two things which could be stunting the growth:
1. I didn't anticipate how much height the plant would gain when I put it into my flowering cupboard and as a result I had to very
gently tie it down (since the cupboard has more horizontal space than vertical.)
2. On two or three occasions I've come home to find that the plant had gotten loose of the ties, popped up, and hit the lights. Since I'm using a huge bank of CFLs rather than one HPS (to avoid overheating the cupboard), damage was minimal with no bud sites touching the lights and only the tips of a few large fan leaves damaged (the worst of which I pruned to avoid infections or whatever).
Should I be worried about this slow growth? Or do you think it's just a trait of this particular phenotype?
I've included a photo of the plant's larger clusters of white hairs so you can make a judgement on how big/small they are (since I don't have much to compare with other than photos on the internet)
