1st Grow; looking for input

  1. Ok so this is my 2nd plant; its just bad seed. Ive been seeing what I can do and am using just CFLs to keep the budget very low and just to start out. The first plant I finally decided today to pull it because its been almost a month and its still really small and wasnt doing too well. This plant I planted about 2 weeks ago I think.
    I think I might be over watering it but want to know what you guys think. I give it a little bit of water from my faucet almost every day to keep the soil moist (been too lazy to go buy the strips or digital tester, and my pH soil meter doesnt seem to be working; probably because I put it in water). I havent started using nutrients on it yet but probably will be very soon; again Ive been too lazy to go to the store to buy them. Im a little worried that it isnt as big as it should be by now but remain optimistic because it looks healthy, and looks like its getting ready to branch out.


    Its currently under a sink under a 23W daylight CFL, but will be moving eventually into a computer case or cabinet Ill find on craigslist.

  2. it dont look too bad, but maybe just a tad small. you definitely need to add more light, its stretching like gumby. and you have to let your tap water sit for atleast 24hours so the chlorine can evaporate out of it, and sometimes tap water has a high ph, i know mine is like 7.8 so i just use distilled.
