    I am using 1 400HPS. and T-5 flouros. I am using Fox farm Ocean Forest Soil, And Fox Farm Big Bloom, And Grow Big nutes. I recently stopped giving my plants any added nutes because they were burning and growing WAY TOO SLOW EVEN UNDER A 400w HPS, and also the temp was too high for my closet, and I dont have extra money for inline fan or anything, so I just bought Cool white and day light CFL's, Here are some pics of the plant growing up so far...


    Thanks for any views, and I will add more photos as they grow... PLZ joint:smoking: me.

  2. You should get some more 6500 for vegging, itll help them grow faster and there is more light it can use

  6. Looks like you've gotten some sort of deficiency goin on there....From what the guy at the grow shop said, a lack of nitrogen is a common problem during veg. Just my little bit of input, but anyhow, Good luck.
     
  7. Thanks thats good to know, I thought I was missing something, but everyone gets it i guess. I dont think ive seen more than 2-3 grow journals where NOTHING goes wrong, I was aware that my soil sucked, but they liked it in the bigginning, Just that theres like an anti root building supplement in the soil. SO... iuse fox farm now, And theyt absolutley love it. All my yellows are turning green, and my greens are turning greener, wiht purple viens, and stuff. Already have 7 finger leafes, and its just 6 " tall, The other is about 5, and just starring to root down. and let me say... CFL's WORK just as good if not better than than a 400w light for Veging. I cant use my 400w HPS because it keeps the closet 86-91F and thats not good for this strain. Its been grown outdoors all ive heard of. DANK!

  11. Today is a good day for weed growing! You may find your seedlings once droopy, have now created a life vibe in your grow room, Giving you a slight boner, and maybe some sweat, This is a good day. a good day.
    Anyway, I got some new stuff, from the Local growshop, and spent like $125 Bucks! DAM yo.:cool::cool::cool:

  12. Why do you all waste your time and money buying so many CFLs?

    I have a 100W mh and 150W hps security lights I bought from HomeDepot for $150/both. Provides full spectrum, keeps my closet right at about 80 F, dries out the soil so your roots don't rot. Give up CFL and move on to HID, you won't be disappointed!!
     
  13. You are losing more than half of your light hanging those CFL's vertically. Find some way, any way, to hang them horizontally and you will dramatically increase your efficiency and results.
     
  14. Ya I am going to build a Hood/reflector that will house 4 of the big 125w eco bulbs, or buy one. I apreciate the growth rate od CFL's, But the new SunBlazer t-5 tubes were only $27 each, So i took out all my CFL's than put in the 3 2000 Lumen tubes, And eventually added (4) 23w 6500K cfl'S, THEY PUT OUT 1600 LUMENS EACH, I did use a 400w HPS but it was too hot!!! Ive said it like 10 times!! lol, oh well, HOW DO I POST A VIDEO JOURNAL, OR a link to a youtube video of mine? that would be cool
     
  15. keep the cfl's but it wouldnt hurt to throw some hps in there also. i have 2 70w hps and 200+w in cfl's mostly 6500k but some 2700k also. HID with cfl's seem to be working very nice for me so far. gl

    oh yea i think i got my hps(70w) at lowes for like 45 bucks each
     

  16. Ha! Yes!! I grow with a 100w MH and a 150w HPS security lights I bought from homedepot. :hello:
     
  17. a i want to buuy a nice full wattage 125w Eco bulbs. there 6500K and put out like 10,000 lumens.
