    looking good man, more light would be optimal.

    try to keep the root mass breathing for the most healthy growth. puncture small holes in the side of the bucket, keep good circulation, etc.

    wind stimulation also helps build strong stem and root structure, which slows growth at first, but is good in the long run

    keep researching! youre off to a good start!




    since legal punishment is so severe, getting optimal yield out of a couple plants per person is the ground work for ending prohibition and NORMLizing it:smoke:

    EDIT: try to keep temps a hair lower and be very very light on the nutes until later in growth IF needed
     
  3. More light honestly at this point? I think maybe in a month some more light, but right now would be a waste.
     
  4. sorry for typing in all caps. and i haveextreme wind stimulation, with one tower fan and one personal 10" fan
     
  5. Did u got all ur shit from walmart?? lol
     
  6. Got the same pots!!!!

  7. Lol walmart, lowes, and homedepot is a goldmine for growers. But my boy had the pots from previous grows, what else beats free supplies to grow with. Im an outside grower, but sinced i moved from calit to a non medical state, outside growing, and growing is illegal as fuck. So this is my first cfl attempt
     
  8. Is she stretching? What kind of strain u using, and what kind of lights u got

     
  9. it's on of my first clones it's call amnesia it's about 2 weeks old.
     
  10. ic then not looking bad at allo. sprry i thought it was a deformed stretched seedling
     
  11. have the same pots in blue, and more lights for vegging wouldnt be a waste at all, it would help em veg out quicker into bigger plants faster. they look good tho so enjoy
     
  12. How the setup is, more lights just wont fit yet, and the pots are perfet size for closet grows i think
     
  13. Everyone loves an update, so here it is. its been a month today, and i believe i have one female that i can see in the white bucket, the others are still not identified. I plan on starting to flower in a week or two. ill keep em vegging a little longer, they are looking healthy.

  14. Not really .
    Plants under stronger light than yours at day 17th can be 3-4 times bigger... Less light=smaller plant=less weed at the end....:wave:
     
  15. Cool, I'll sub. Make sure you look into the cloning section of these forums so you can skip the early stages by quite a bit next time :D.

    What kind of soil are you using?
     
  16. so this plant blew the f**K up. so i decided to put all the light attention on it. the two others like the light they are under and are seeming to do better, which is weird but owell. The one pplant is pushing 185 - 190 actual watts on it. i hope to see growth soon. I do have a fourth plant, i topped it but it is gunna be a topped and scrog'd surprise for later.

  17. Light is not measured in watts nor are the 'watts' all going (pushing) on your plant. Most of the photons are missing entirely which is why you think you need more. You need to build or buy some better reflectors to trap the lost light.


    Here is a healthy plant under a single 5 watt LED with 90% of the light hitting the leaves.

    I could grow a forest under 180 watts.
     
  18. This plant was grown under a single 23w CFL:

    If I were smarter I could get a lesser result with 8 times the wattage.
