alright so I just wanted to show everyone my soil grow that i've got going on, and I was hoping to get some opinions. This plant was started in a small red plastic 'solo' cup, then transferred into a 3 gallon bucket after a month. I used miracle-gro potting soil mixed with a little bit of perlite. I started this plant on oct. 15th, 2009 on full spectrum fluorescents, but moved it to a 400w HPS later. I named it gloria, hoping it would be a female. This is what it looked like 3 weeks into growth. now, when it first sprouted my girlfriend was supposed to be watching it, and watering it but she forgot.. what else is new. so for the first week or so it had no water, but it was on a 18/6 hr light schedule. this is how it looked a month and a half into growth, still under the fluorescent. still on a 18/6 hr schedule. two weeks later it looked like this, starting to get nice and full. This is when I switched it to the 12 on 12 off schedule... but still under the fluorescent. (didn't have cash for the HPS yet ) two weeks after that and its really starting to look like a cannabis plant! now this is when I got my 400w HPS. it really makes a difference, i can see major growth daily now.. and now, this is what it looks like today... a few days into HPS flowering. funny thing is, this is just a seed I grabbed out of a regular bag... not even decent buds. I'm lucky it turned out to be a female.. I'll be even luckier come harvest time. I'd love to hear comments!
