Hey GC! Well, I decided to start my first grow. So, here is where I am at so far: I am using a BS from some decent mids. This is just a practice grow to give it a shot. I went out bought a clay pot, a CFL which gives off 2700 Lumens, and a real ghetto set up. I'm not looking for the best quality or quantity. I just wanna see if I like the process =) Anyway, it looks like the seed may be ready in about another hour or two. Here are a couple questions that I have: Once I plant the seed, is it safe to just leave the CFL on for 24 hours so the sprout doesnt stretch? Also, how long should I keep the 24/7 lighting going? And when do I switch to a lighting schedule (I still need to purchase a timer), what is the best hours to use for vegging, and the best for flowering? I will be updating this post a lot =) so any help is appreciated! UPDATES: 9/16 - Planted one germinated seed at 10am.
