I'm considering making the small fan up by the lights an intake so the air would go:
thus cooling the lights, but the lone bulb doesn't produce enough heat to warrant the laborious rewiring :b
Now I just anxiously await popping from the soil, and then cross my fingers for ladies

I'm a noob but you need more than one 23 watt bulb. At least 4 of those bulbs.
It will have 2 23w. I feel like that is sufficient for one plant. I also will transplant into a better container and get better soil. This is just my first foray into growing so I can learn a few things.

1. Ideally you want to have 100 watts going for one plant. If you have anyway possible of fitting 4 23w bulbs in there do it.
2. Stack your planter on books, DVD's ect.. to get it around 3 inches from the light. You'll want to remove books as it grows and always try to keep the top of the plant within a few inches of the bulb. With CFL's you don't have to worry about them burning because the bulb doesn't get too hot, only the base of the bulb.
3. Are you using nutrients? If yes start your feeding schedule 2 weeks after it sprouts. If no, seriously think about getting some.
Also, if you have any questions throughout this board is a great resource for you. I may not have the answer to all of your questions but rest assured somebody here does. Happy growing.

In the past I have used TechnaFlora Recipe for Success line. I liked them well enough but I'm moving towards organic growing.
For my current run I'm using the Earth Juice Lineup. You can find more info on them here. FERTILIZERS, Liquid

I will try to order some of those after I move on Sunday. So far my swollen beans haven't popped through the soil, but they've only been there a day and a half i shpose.
thanks for the advice. I'm also in the pursuit of a new light system

A total of 100w is perfect for a PC box. I usually go with 4 26w bulbs.

Question, how many lights do you have on that little baby? You don't want to go full throttle with the light until right around the first real set of leaves pop out your frying those cotyledons. Also cover the top of the cup with a plastic baggie or plastic wrap of some sorts until you see the serrated leaves pop out.

How the fuck do you pronounce cotyledon? Is it like coh-till-eedin? or coh-till-uh-don?
