So, I completed my 1st indoor grow using CFLs, 14 of them to be exact. I had planted bag seed from really good weed(I was shocked to find 3 seeds). I planted all 3 in Miracle Grow(I know, I know!) and they turned out to be all females and harvested just fine. I got 3 zippers, 1 each plant. While I was doing this grow, I learned a lot here and from other places so that brings me to this grow.
I am using a 70/30 Coco/Perlite mixture with dolomite lime in air pots. The tent for vegging is 36x20x64. Light is 600w Quantum digital ballast with dimming and Hydrofarm Daystar AC sealed reflector. MH conversion for veg and HPS for flower.
I followed Ed's coco guide to get started including the shot glass method for germination which was a first for me. It worked great. I planted the seeds in the common plastic red cups and within days I had roots coming out the bottom of some. In the following days I had a little trouble with growth but have since corrected it by PHing all distilled water to 5.8 and adding a little Cal Mag Plus. I didn't think it was that critical early on but they sure liked it. Bringing you up to the present I added some CNS17 Grow on day 17 and MH are at 75%.
