Alright so i took some bag seeds from some decent mids I got and I through them in a pot after germinating them in a washrag and they sprouted. I bought some gardening soil and a 150 watt flouro that i got over them 24/0. this is the first day they have sprouted, and there are 4 total. I was just going to grow these under the 150 watt flouro untill time for flowering, but I dont know when I can flower them. From what Ive gathered its after sexing them, but ive heard about forcing a plant to flower, and I was wondering if I could force these to flower after 2 weeks. I dont want to grow a magnificent plant this first time, cuz I was kinda just messin around and then they grew, i really didnt intend to care for these plants. however, i want this to be my practice run and then but some white widow seeds. Some questions, can I have these plants under the 150 w flouro for two weeks to a month and then force the flowering by switching from a 24/0 (or should I have it on a 18/6 during veg?) to 12/12? And when I flower the plants, can I get another 150 w flouro and grow a good yeilding and potent plant? More importantly, running only one 150w during veg for white widow, and 300 w total for flowering, I know its not the best, but I just want a good stone for personal use. at first anyway any help would be really appreciated. oh, and ive been searching around and cant really get a good answer on this. What type of soil should I be using, like exactly, cuz I dont really get it and ive been trying to. and what type of fertalizers should i be giving the plants. i know about the ph level, but I dont know how to control it. Basically, im trying to grow the best buds i can without spending to much money. like, a total investment of 75 bucks to start and then upgrading to hps bulbs and the sog method for a whole room. again, i just want to get the growing process down before i go and attempt the sog method in january when i move to cali.
