    So tomorrow will officially be the second whole week that everything has sexed.. Im excited to for the next couple of weeks. the girls are looking great and budding nice. ill update some more pics soon, although im not sure if anyone even reads this or not? lol .. Anyways 2 days ago i bought two extra lights to hang from the sides of the table so that the bottoms of the plants are getting light as well.. the new lights i bought were from walmart.. there 3000 on the kelvin meter. i kno you need 2700 for flowering so mines pretty close.. the lumans are 3400 on the two new ones i bought. This puts the grand total at 5 lights.. 3 on top and 2 on the sides.. The other 3 that i already had are all also 40 watts, there 4100 on kelvin meter and 3200 lumans.. ill get another pic soon of my operation.. Is it ok if i mix the lights like that?

    Also when i turn the lights on at 12 pm, i wait 6 hrs and then rotate all the plants 180 degrees. this way it makes sure at least all spots are gettin 6 hrs of light since i have lights hanging from the side, is this method ok?this is my first grow op so i might need some help guys lol.. Another question i have is, on the lights i bought it says 40 watts, but its two lights. so does that really mean i have 80 watts from each light then since it has two bulbs in the holder or does it mean 20 watts in each bolb? it has my confused. i have 5 lights total , but 10 bolbs, so im thinkin im puttin out 400 watts total , or is it really 200? this question has me stressin some help guys?? thankss...Has anyone ever smoked big bang?? was it good?
     
  3. Those plants look nice. I didn't think that shop lights like that could work so well.
     

  4. Thanks dude! and thanks for commenting.. i was wonderin if anyone thought they might be ok.. ill get some more pics up, there budding better now.. keep toking man !
     
  5. the end of saturday marked 2 weeks of flowering for my girls and makes them a total of 10 weeks old .. I watered them today and used bone mill product on them. a few days ago i added a couple more lights as you can see in the photos.. they seem to be flowering nice but idk cuz i dont have any other experience to compare it to, im also thinking of adding a couple more lights.. Right now i have 3 on the top and two on the sides.

  6. saturday made 6 whole weeks of flowering.. i would get some more pics up but doesnt look like anyone pays attention to my grow lol .. would it be ok if i put a 400 watt hps light on my plants for there final 3 weeks of flowering? i would have sooner but i didnt have the money untill now
     
  7. So i cut my 6 girls down today, it gave them 8 weeks of flowering, they coulda went longer but to be honest im out of weed so you kno how that goes lol.. I have them hanging in my closet right now... ill get some pics and the final weight up, looks like maybe a quarter pound all together, i used cfls for the entire grow .. btw should i pick off all the leaves while the plant is hanging or leave them on? thanks guys
     
  8. Soo the final dry weight of the 6 fem big bang is a quarter pound.. two of my plants each gave me an oz the other 4 all gave around a half oz.. I have pics of the the plants hanging and some of the biggest buds but my pics are to large and wont seem to load.. any ideas how i can get them on here?
     
  9. heya, first off respect for a nice grow... pity so few watched it, maybe more pix woulda helped ;)
    to get your files to a smaller size you could photoshop 'em into a smaller resolution, and always make sure to save them as .jpg's since these have an integrated compression making the files pretty small...
    damn i wish i had anything to hang in my dry-closet but i'm at least 2months from that... sigh...
    just keep on growin, you seem to be doin' just fine:D


    peace

    :wave:

  10. hey nice grow man. Quick 3 questions.

    Where did you get your lighting? (light bulbs fixture)
    how did they cost?
    How did it effect you light bill?
     
  11. Thanks man, I got the lights and fixtures all from walmart. they didnt cost much. like ten bucks a piece, fixture and bolbs came together. there just cheap cfl lights. They didnt seem to effect my electic bill at all.
     

  12. thanks dude! last season i just grew outside, but im gettin a 600watt hps system with my income tax. so my next indoor grow should be much better. what strand do you think i should grow? i want the strongest i can get.
