Are my girls in vege yet?

Hi fellow growers I need your help I have a white widow idle flour and a photo Granddaddy purple. They came up Sept. 15th. Not sure if veg started or when :thinking:. Here’s today’s pic:
White widow

Grand daddy purple

What I know: Spider farmer 2000 hanging 19" above plant on 18/6 cycle. Leaves don’t look curled or yellow; deep green (hope that good). LST not to successful, ties came off.

Long post sorry again. Thanks

@Adcrag plants looking good! Since they sprouted they are in the vegetative state. The Granddaddy will stay veg for as long as you keep them under 18/6 since it is a photoperiod. (So just change the cycle to 12/12 when you are ready to go into flower for the gdp, maybe after the autos finish?).

The white widow autoflower is still in veg as well at the moment, but will go into flower (budding) on it’s own staying under the 18/6 light cycle probably in a couple weeks. I started my GDPs and white widow autos on August 31st and the W.W. started going into flower last week. Hope this helps (and anybody correct me if I’m wrong), happy growing!

Generally speaking, plants leave the seedling stage and enter the vegetative phase when they develop four sets of true Leafs and the fifth appearing.
According to Ed Rosenthal’s excellent book

Yours definitely has more leaf sets!

@Adcrag Your plants are looking awesome. Your doing a great job! Trust me you will know if your plants are not in good shape. The white widow is a very easy going plant and not hard to please. And look forward to a nice harvest with her. The smoke from my white widow from Homegrown is just A-1. Keep up that great job your doing!

I can see you have the green wires on the sides of the pot. Are you doing TIE DOWN? Personally, I do not touch Auto’s unless it is right when they have their 2nd set of leaves. Fems - you are at a great point to split those colas. I use fim and snip to get 8 tips. I use tie down and keep the lower branches clean so all growth goes right to the tips. It is just a thought.
They look REALLY good, nice color, good spacing between nodes (means you got your lights just perfect).
What size pot/s are you using?
