After some conversation with the roommate, i decided to keep one of the Bubbas as a mother (#1). This will be the beginning of a perpetual, medicinal grow, and I might go back to the ebb & flow next time coming. The Platinum gets too out of control (saw this in the last grow), and wouldn't be practical (for space reasons) in the ebb & flow. Gonna LST some of these tomorrow. Possible scrog later?

The LED run really cool, no heat issues at all. Yeah, I've used the LED and the HPS simultaneously, they work great together. I'll probably use them both this time around :D didnt even think of that until you brought it up lol

....too high

Introducing flower tonight, pics up tomorrow. Stick around, due to financial issues I have to switch from the organics to using Dutch master gold line in flowering (got the nutes for free) , hopefully the plants don't shock. Any advice?

I've grown Bubba Kush. The leaves are twisting because the optimal growing conditions cause accelerated growth. The seedlings are HAPPY. This is something you'll sometimes see in the first few leaf sets of broad-leafed indica plants. It's not a problem at all, they'll outgrow it as the later leaves get somewhat longer and narrower, though they will still be dark green and indica shaped.

It does look cluttered and dark in the pics but that's not the case. The room is lit up and clean. Just bad photo taking I guess.
