2 gods gift clones

  1. So yesterday I picked up what i thought were two young clones from a local grower in town. They are 2 gods gift and he had them growing in a 100% coco red solo cup. They were super healthy when i picked them up but a little droopy after a few hours under my lights they perked up pretty quickly

    They are now in 3 gallon ocean forest soil and they took to the soil perfectly with no visible signs of soil shock.

    I have them under 2 cfls (1 at 300 watts and the other at 150w) and a 50w led. When I picked up these guys i was under the impression they were young teens and a bit away from flowering so i figured for now this lighting would be plenty.

    After a more thorough inspection i found out both of these bad boys are shooting pistils. My plan was to keep them under a 24 hour cycle for a week or so then move to a 16/8 till they were ready for the full 12/12 flip but I think what I am going to do is keep them under the 24 cycle till im completely ready for all the duties of flowering (proper lighting, sealed off room and a decent carbon filter to clean the smell).

    Any suggestion are REALLY appreciated, I have only grown once and i had to kill the plant before it began to flower.
  2. the first few pics are right after i picked them up and you can tell they are a little droopy

    if someone could confirm those are pistils that would help i'm only using the knowledge i have received from reading these forums so please critic.

  4. So I built a grow tent today because these plants are ready to do into flower and I don't want to risk the smell also it helped arrange and organize my grow

    Also I've been talking to some local growers and the led thing is a new area of lighting so I'm supplementing the CFLs with the 2 of the "Miracle LED" 50 watt bulbs but the lighting is kind of scarce so I may throw in a few 150 watt CFLs to add some power for the flowering.

    Also how often should I be watering them I've watered them a lot recently because they had very minor problems with the move and building the tent took them off the lights for about an hour

  6. you should be watering every morning/beginning of light cycle/"their" morning. water them until it starts to drain. IMO a three gallon container needs about 3/4 gallon water every morning. don't forget to remove excess moisture immediately or asap to avoid mold (I personally use a small shop vac to get it all up quickly).

    what's the total wattage of your setup right now?

    looks like pistils to me in that one picture!
  7. Sub'd

    I water every 2 days at lights on. But with everyone its different, really depends on conditions i guess.What are your temps/humidity like?
  8. I will post some more pictures when the lights are on but for now the total wattage is 750. My humidity was a problem but I threw in an inline fan and a mini dehumidifier so it been between 40-55 and the temp doesn't get above 80 or below 60.
  9. So just an update I threw in another cfl this time only 150 watts keeping the room at 750 watts. I included a picture of the leaves because I think they are different strains.

  10. So just an update I added some new lights. I did some research and found out I was not using the correct spectrum so I added 2 more 160w 6400k instead of the 2700k I have move 6500k CFLs which will replace the remaining veg CFLs.

  11. Plants look amazing bro!
  12. so this 320w of clfs need no ballast? Someone told me they don't need them recently, but i didn't believe it. it's true?
  13. Ya CFLs are self contained ballasts
  14. that's crazy. I'm totally getting some.
  15. I love them they are super cheap and plants love them!
  16. they look awsome man subd

    I know I just updated but I found some early bud formations covering my plants

  18. Ok so this morning my girlfriend forgot and turned the closet light on so I had to turn them on about an hour early.

    Yesterday I did some trimming on the lower branches and the growth was noticeable overnight one of the leaves was literally touching a CFL so they are growing pretty quick now. I also changed my bulbs out I but in 4 200w 6500k and 1 160w 6500k so I should be pushing close to 1k wattage

  19. Also if you notice in some of the pictures I have branches that are red. I've read a few different things that claim it's a sign of purple or red hues if I can keep the room cool
