Another update with some notes for future reference, and a map because I'm a stoner lol. Day 13 of budding
The blue islands are consistently dry every 3 days now and take about 4L each.
2 - a beast, grows very vigorously. Smaller middle growth filled in very well and all those tiny branches got thick fast with big, lush fan leaves. Definitely #1 in growth and shape. Is actually sagging a bit from being dry at the start of third day after watering. THIRSTY
3 - was my favorite in veg, but now the smallest. Still growing very well, but middle growth didn't fill in as much and its more spindly and sparse than the other 2. The four long main colas are really nice and look like they will fill in well
4 - middle of the road. middle growth filled in better than 3, is more tall and thicker. main colas aren't as big as 2,3
BG? - much shorter than the BIs, is on a 1" lift and still quite a bit shorter. Very bushy, needs to be thinned out regularly for air flow. Nugs are already stacking like crazy I think it will be stout and thick. Strong smell, but kinda 'grassy'.
GB? - this stretched more than 2x in the first 2 weeks....was only ~ 1 month old from seed when put into bud. Healthy, vigorous plant with no complaints. Stretchy, long internodal spacing
