so i been researching for over a year. my brother and i wanna get growing. he is 6 years younger than me and a lot more impatient. anyways he did his first grow with 4 clones. he got some where around 10 grams i believe off his plants. they looked pretty bad at the end of his grow. this time i am trying. i have a large area to work with but money is tight. i have a cousin who grows outdoors every year. he gave me a bunch of seeds. i figured i would start with as many as i could, which meant all my grow cubes, 13. well now i am almost in week 3. 13 out of 13 grew from seed. i decided to go with a dwc set up using 2-30 gal totes and a 5 gal bucket for the 13th plant. i under estimated how fast things would go. i plant to move the plants to 5 gal for flowering but i thought i would know sex by then. my best plant is in the 5 gal with one cfl above it. i am using all cfls atm and have a 400w hps for flowering. i know i will definitely need more. this project is a little frustrating because i was sorta rushed into it but also was real excited getting into it. at this point i am just letting things go and see what happens. i have definitely 2 or 3 plants with someweird issues. like tips burnt and strange leaf growth also smaller then the good looking ones. i believe my air stones may not be sufficient enough. i have 2 bigger air pumps running 2-12 inch airstones in the 30 gal and a small air pump running a 3 inch diameter airstone in the 5 gal. like i said the 5 gal plant is doing amazing. it was the late bloomer too. now its out grown the rest. i am thinking of killing the plants with problems and transfering the remaining 6 to 9 into 5 gals. my brother wants to see what sex they are first. i am feeling a little over whelmed at this point and under funded, lol. i guess i am just asking what should i do from here, one monday i am doing my firsy water/nute/res change. from how the plant in the 5 gal is doing i think the others would do better in that. also i waited to long to transfer from grow cube to the dwc set up i think too. the late bloomer didnt have much roots popping out of cube and i think maybe thats why its doing better. the other had some up to 3 inches. anyways any input is appreciated. if i get on my comp i will post some pics to let you guys see my set up.
