-if I get any terms wrong, I'm sorry, I'm still trying to gain as much knowledge as possible and I'm guessing I probably have a few things wrong-
This is just a learning thing for me. I'm not getting my hopes up for any bud at all, though getting some would be nice. I'm actually trying to keep this as low key as possible, more like just a regular old potted plant that someone could have in their room. I plan on doing a little LST to keep it shorter and I'm probably going to have to keep it trimmed short, bonsai like -I've read there are ways to do this, not exact like bonsai, but with the idea of a small plant. So tips on that will be helpful too-
I think you should get what I'm going for.
Here's what I have going on right now. Today was a very special day for me, I noticed my first sprout popping it's little leafs out of the soil! Yeaaah! But now I'm not quiet sure what to do with lighting. So maybe some of you can help me out.
Thanks to the wonderful guides stickied here, I got started just fine. I have my growing smoke planted in a 7-8" pot, with about a 6" diameter. I made sure that the soil was kept moist and I haven't really worried about the lighting yet. I'm growing in my room (no grow box/closet, just the plant on a table right beside a southern facing window in michigan) and the only other light source in my room is a 26w CFL about maybe 8-9' away from my baby.
*Now with a desk lamp set 10" above with a 26w CFL in it, just not turned on*
I guess you could call this just a hobby grow?
Today it sprouted, and I think I should probably get some more light for it, but because this isn't a plant I'm growing to just to smoke, but more to learn, which means I don't want it big really at all, there isn't many guides out there for me.
So, if I should add more light, to make sure it can be healthy, I think I could probably add one more CFL to my setup.
-Should I use a 26w or a 13w.
-When should I set it up? Now, or wait a little longer -how long?-
-When I do set it up, what lighting schedule should I use? 24/0? 18/6? A different one?
Yeah, that's it I think for now.
