Welcome to GN @jrmnallen24 … Your in great hands here… What distance are you at now?.. I’ve always learned an optimal distance is between 12-18 inches sometimes I’ll raise and lower light accordingly… Your plant looks really healthy but tall I think she may be stretching for light too much… Hope this helped

Thanks very much I’m currently at 20 inches I will lower my lights I’m a beginner I really appreciate the advice I use general hydroponics nutrient mixture with a lighting schedule 12/12 I’m completely green when it comes to growing cannabis but highly eager and passionate about growing love it!! I don’t know the strains but I’ve been taught how to spot Male and female seeds with the right nutrients and lighting schedule does the yield time vary for different strains?

12/12 schedule is way to early for your plants my friend… 18/6 at least for veg cycle looks like your still in seedling except a few … Let us know what equipment you have like @preybird1

See if you can get some bigger pots. Your going to need them fast. They like bigger pots once there like 7-12" also. And the less transplanting the better. If your not sure if there male or female use 1 gallon fabric pots. Amazon is your friend
