I have two feminized seeds I just got from Attitude (<-awesome! ). First is a Barney's Farm LSD and the other one came w/ it free (yeah, free), which is a Royal Queen Seeds ICE.
I'm stoked about my first grow, but I don't want to fuck it up right off the bat. I know how to germinate and sprout:
(at least I'm pretty sure:) shot glass distilled (or drinking) H20, wait for sinkage, after sinkage: wet paper towel trick till 5mm tail, bury about 5mm into soil, tail pointed down... (feel free to critique)
But my main concern is my lighting and set-up: I have a 20 watt CFL bulb that is apparently the cheapest I can use to grow according to local buddies. (my budget is pretty pathetic, hoping to change that in round 2)
It says its an energy saving bulb too, which is sick, and it puts out 1235 lumens, which I'm assuming is pretty good, and the light looks more blue-ish than yellow or red-ish (if that makes sense). Basically what I'm asking: Is this light going to be efficient enough to grow two plants side by side in a closet? I have a hanging pulley system (ghetto-rigged) that makes it so I can raise or lower the light to make sure its close enough to give the most light, but I can pull it away if the plant grows too close.
As far as the "grow-room," its in a closet in my house. Its not a rental, so I'm not worried about a landlord smelling them or anything like that, so I'm not concerned about ventilation... right?
If it looks like I have any big red flags that need addressing, please feel more than free to let me know. Reason I'm posting is to get help. Hell, its the reason I joined GC!
