Hello Everyone. I've been growing for the first time and just lurking the forums for tips. My grow started March 20th. I germinated about 20 seeds that were collected from bags(I know not the smartest idea, but you'll quickly discover my grow to be as white trash as they come.) The seeds were collected from bags of OG Kush, Sweet Dreams and Triple X. Of the 20 seeds, 17 of them were successful germinated. I bought a seed starter for tomatoes from Wal-mart to get them started without much watering and a single 75 watt fluorescent long bulb. (The grow medium at this time was the soil pellets from in the seed starter kit.) Grow started in my closet in a 4x4 Seedling started with 16 germinated seeds planted.

Then before I could realize, they started stretching, fast. I added 3 more 75 watt bulbs and tied together with a shoe-string to solve the issue, but they kept stretching. I realized shortly after that I was not putting the light close enough for fear of burning, but these lights could not burn anything regardless. My seedlings already needed crutches made from pens and bread ties. (Like I said earlier, white trash grow.) At this time I have weeded down to 13 plants which is good because I can legally grow 12. I chose the one that wasn't do as good and killed it.
