First Indoor grow - A few Questions

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by -SweetLou-, Aug 22, 2008.

  1. This is my first indoor grow. I've grown a few other times outdoors and helped with an indoor set up before. I just have a few concerns as to the color and condition of my plant.


    Notice the stem has a section that is red. I don't know why this is happening. Also.. the very frist set of leaves on the bottom have yellow spots and feel very dry.


    Again.. notice the stem has a red section.. wtf?
    Otherwise does it look healthy to anyone?


    Here's a pic of the top. It's been growing very slowly. I have it under 6
    GE Soft White Spiral 42W Bulbs each put out about 2700 lumens and if you aren't familiar with these bulbs they have a 150W equivalent.
    Basically I'm wondering if my plant looks alright or if there are any changes I need to make. I'm using promix soil and it says it feeds up to 9 months so I wasn't planning on feeding it. I water it every 2-3 days and mist it daily. Also does anyone know when I should start pruning? I want this to be a shorter plant since I'm growing in a closet

    ANy help would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. it very well could be the slow release ferts in the soil that are burning your leaves. as for the stem, no clue, but try posting in sick plants and problems forums, im sure some of the experts can help ya.
  3. I read that day light bulbs are better for veg, and soft white is better for flowering. I'm not sure how true that is but thats my 2 cents, if its even worth that much :p
  4. I've heard that as well. Thanks for the info. The ones I have on them now are the daylight bulbs. Once she hits flowering I'm going to switch to white.
  5. I know It says in the original post it's the soft white.. I'm not sure what it's called but It's the more yellow of the two. the warmer colored light that I have on them.
  6. It's actually a really big help to use something with a daylight spectrum, either CFL's or MH bulbs, to veg. Your plants stay shorter and bushier, which means more buds/ft of growth. Can't argue with that!
