    Wow - they look very lush! how long can you keep growing them under that light? The roots must be popping through the bottom of those little containers.

    The roots have worked down into the reservoir below. In fact, at a bout 10 weeks I will have to clean them out of the pump!

    Talking hi

    that looks like a verry good and healthy plant and hairy too-even start the bloom......
    good indoor growing !!!!!!!! in my opinion-you should have put the lights higher and give more growing time with more light time and more N-fertelizer , so the plant will grow higher!!
    this is mine outdoors-same age-not as beutiful-but flowring and fruiting all over 3-4 feet high:
