First Indoor Grow. Plz Help.

  1. Hey all,
    I tried searching everything but I couldn't come up with much casue I was overwhelmed with information. I am doing an indoor closet grow and the plants look good but it seems they are stunted in growth compared to everyone elses plants at the same age. They are approx. 3 weeks old and still look like seedlings to me. I am running a soil grow with 1/3 vermic, peat moss and perlite. They are in 1 gallon pots after transplanting and I have been watering them every other day with a 1/2 diluted solution of 24-8-16. I am also running a 400W 5000K spiral cfl at 18/6 on a timer. Should I stop the nutes, water less, bring the light closer, ect..? I have posted some pics so tell me what you think would be best to maximize production? Thank you.

  2. High there, is that your 400w light in the picture?
  3. I'm a beginner myself so, I can't really give MUCH information but, I would consider moving the light in closer. I have one plant that was in the same situation as yours are. I thought maybe I "shocked" her when I transplanted her but, I moved my light source closer to her after about 3 weeks and she took off. It's worth a try, and isn't going to hurt the plants unless they get too hot!
    As far as nutes and water go, MOST of the info on here says watering once or twice a week is sufficient and nutes aren't needed for the first two weeks usually. They look HEALTHY, just small so, I personally wouldn't be TOO concerned about that but I WOULD get the light in closer to them.
    Good Luck! :smoke:
  4. Yeah, that is the 400W CFL. Full spectrum 5000K. I was thinking about running 2 of them but that light is pretty damn bright.
  5. Hmm, it don't look like a 400w CFL. I have 2x 125w CFL's and they are huge, so I think your girls need more light but I could be wrong and they might have changed the design but I doubt it.

    Good luck
  6. The light is huge. Its about a foot long and 4" in diameter.
