Whoo! I'm one-third of the way done with my first grow and things are looking good! I've got two plants approaching flowering, one trained by LST'ing at the fifth node and FIM'ing the lower growth stems around the 3rd week of veg. The other received the same thing but in reverse order(FIM'd at 5th node, LST'd 3rd week veg). So far, I'm convinced that FIM'ing/Topping/cutting any part of the main growth stem is a big no-no. With all that said, I have a few more questions for you guys: 1) Is okay to LST(very loosely) until the plant goes through its initial growth spurt? I'll stop LST'ing altogether eventually, but I can't afford for stems to get taller than 7". 2) Asked this in another topic, but it won't hurt for someone to answer it twice. Is there still a risk of mold if you spray with homemade/Guru's insectide which contains anti-bacterial soap during flowering? 3) Should I buy Schultz Bloom Plus fert or stick with the All-Purpose Plus(10-15-10)? DierWolf said to combine the two, but I just wanted some second opinions. Anyone? 4) Would it be okay to leave one or two Cool White CFLs in during flowering for a dual spectrum effect, or would purely Warm White and Daylight(only two for lower lighting) CFLs work better? 5) Oh, and is Superthrive worth the $10? >_> Thanks in advance. I'll probably post some blurry pics on day 1 of 12/12.
