  1. I have a small 2x2 grow tent and just ordered the viparspectra p1000, I had such a large selection to choose from and some with and without dimmers. Did I order a good light or should I cancel the order. My setup

  2. yea its ok. I checked yur vid, and you are starting in too large a pot and it will slow growth.

  3. Look at the Koscheal on Amazon. I use 2 of them. They give me about the same results as I used to get from a 400w has. They have both veg and bloom switches. Lots cheaper too!

  4. careful using the mulch, it can be a hard material to work with for a new indoor grower.

    @trojangrower - how does a big pot make a plant grow slower?

  5. I had no idea, so I should use a small pot. Wish I knew before transplanting.

  6. Thanks for the info, I'm on a budget having to buy everything but next month will buy better soil.

  7. Due to slower root ball development. It will be ok, but ime it takes longer to grow. Also, the wet/dry cycle takes longer, but using less water works. If the grower just waters the entire container until its saturated, then there could be problems.
     
  8. I poke my finger into the soil to check the dryness and water when needed.

  9. OK, that sounds more like my mulch comment then? Using it requires more experience vs an actual detriment. Whereas in the case of using a smaller pot, there's a limiting factor because root growth is impacted negatively due to smaller pot size.

  10. i've never used mulch on cannabis. I'm actually about to go get a yard of mulch and add it around the trees outside over some biological barrier; figured its the only thing to slow those root shoots.
    just don't overwater those bigger pots... at least you won't have to transplant later on :)
    hey that's what she said :D
     
  11. I'm only guessing as every site I click on has a different answer, At the time I put about 3 oz in and it's about every other day when the soil feels dry.
     
  12. This podcast with professor of Washington Univ. talks about mulch - I'd recommend listening and thought she was a great educator in this presentation - There's even a section where she talks about a website where homeowners can get free mulch ;)

  13. That info is in accurate .
     
  14. What info is in accurate ?.
     
  15. Planting a seed into a large container will grow slower. That info is false .
     
  16. I used the wet paper towel process, 3 days later the seed had a root and I put them in a jiffy peat pot. Once they had two leaves I transferred to the 3 gallon bucket. However I appreciate your input, best way to learn
