Since my first post i have setup a new lighting system Here are some photos of it. The light is about 1 inch away from the plants and it is a 18w energy saver it is normal white and is a equivalent to a 120w light. I put my hand right where the plants are and my hand did not feel any heat at all from the light at 1 inch so i guess that will be fine. My question is will my plants be ok under this light until i can pick up a growlux tube? I am planning to use a growlux tube for the veg state and then the normal tube for flowering. I leave this light on for 18 hours a day then give it 6 hours of darkness On the seed packed it says that my top 44 takes 7 weeks to grow and the lowryder takes 6 weeks. Will they take longer on my 120w light. The temperature in the room is always kept at 70F but some times it drops down to 65F I have a large fan i put in which i turn on once a day to let fresh air in too the room. For Co2 i give them carbonated spring water. nutrients are already in the soil and there is enough to last the plant 6 weeks. It said on the soil that its safe to grow herbs in so i figured it safe to grow my MJ herb in lol. My other question is how much water should i be giving them? and ow often do you water?. Last question. Will my plants have a very good crop growing under my current light system?. Its cheap and cheerful but once the growlux is on there i think it might be ok.
