Your plant looks healthy. I'm not an expert, but from my experience and what I've read, your plant seems pretty stretched. You should try to point your CFLs sideways because spiral CFLs give off most of their light from the sides. If you go to Home Depot, they have Y splitters for light bulbs. That will help angle the lights.

I personally would get rid of the heat lamp and add more CFLs. the collective heat from them all should be enough warmth for your plant. Walmart sells thermometers for like a $1

Hope this helps some.

Cheers! :smoke:

yea...

1. You need a 6500k temperature bulb (bright white) For Vegging.
2. Eliminate the heat.... unless its really cold where you are and you need it. mid 70's is optimal.
3. flip the light schedule to 12/12.
4. 1/2 strength if your using Miracle Burn...I mean Grow.
5. Best of luck and rule of thumb "LESS IS MORE" .... Dont over water and minimize the feeding to every other watering. Water, Dry, Dry, Feed, Dry, Dry, Water, Dry, Dry, Feed. Days separated by commas.
6. When you flip the light schedule to 12/12 you want to use the type of bulbs you have. 2700k-3500k in (kelvin = color temperature)

Get rid of the heat bulb asap and get rid of that tin foil, it creates hot spots and conducts any heat thats in the area. other than that i think u might eliminate 2 of those bulbs and add 2 6500k ones, both spectrums of light is better than 1 for flowering.

p.s. water whenever the soil feels dry. stick ur finger in it to test for moisture
