  1. This grow is about a month old. I have one CFL currently, and about to invest some more if its a female! ;)

    is it too early to tell still..?

  2. Invest in more CFL's atleast a 100 Actual Watts per plant. Make sure its not 100 watt equivalent but Actual.

    Its too early to tell thats just new growth and stipules, which occur on every plant.
     
  3. Yes. You can't tell until she shows signs of flowering.
     
  4. change the lighting over to 12/12 for at least a week and see if you see white hairs start to pop out.. as soon as you see white hairs switch it to 24/0 for another week to make sure it doesnt continue to flower, and either keep it at 24/0 or go back to 18/6 by adding a few hrs of dark each couple days.

    Whats the best way to control the lighting times on a tight budget?
     
  6. Buy a timer -- you can find one for $10.
     
  7. timers are very cheap until you need one to control very high wattage lights.

    if you are super cheap you could just plug it in and unplug it every 12 hrs..lol if you mess it up it could stress it out and have a higher chance of being male or hermie though
     
  8. Right now im unable to keep it on 24/0 will that stress it out? its on a 16/8 time pattern right now
     
  9. Invest in a $3 timer from Walmart and set it to 18/6 for veg. Even a high wattage timer is dirt cheap. Keep in mind switching in and out of flower can stress a plant.
