Ok, so I've been saving my bagseed from the last year of smoking now, I have about two hundred or so . . . Anyways, so I've had two very unsuccessful grows in the past and have generally just bought schwagg to mids and saved the seeds for a grow that will hopefully yield me enough bud to last me three months or so (that's a big hope, but meh). Anyways, I plan on growing four plants under a 400 watt hps light in my closet, which I still need to figure out how to mod for ventilation. I plan on using yeast and sugar in water for co2 production since I don't have enough room for a co2 tank and generally don't want to go through the setup trouble since I won't be growing after this anytime soon unfortunately. This is my only chance to grow for the next two years, so I'm hoping I can pull it off. I want to start off my seeds under two 60 watt compact fluorescent floodlights and five 30 watt compact curly fluorescents but I don't know how long I can keep them under them before I will need the more powerful 400 watt. Due to energy conservation concerns, I want to keep them under the fluoros until flower, but am unsure if the plant will survive under them long enough under those conditions. I'd even prefer to flower under them due to energy constraints, but my desire for a higher and better yield has recently convinced me to flower under my 400 watt. How long can I keep them under the fluoros before it would become detrimental to the plants' health or yield? I know enough about LST and FIMing to maximize yield (but we'll see, maybe not), but I want to keep time to a minimum while still yielding about a half oz. to oz. per plant. How long would it take me to get such a yield? I have a time constraint of 3 to 4 months before conditions would prevent me from continuing, but under that time would be preferable as I would still need quite a bit of time for harvesting, manicuring, drying, and curing (six weeks I believe is the recommended drying and curing time). Let me know, plz. Thanks in advance, growers.
