Quick update, got almost everything to builb my grow room now, i decided to change the light and go for a better reflector hood, ive also decided to experiment with a dual spectrum HID bulb, the ballast is compatible with MH and HPS also so if growth slows i will change it.

Update on the big bud seeds just put it in some medium just some fertilizer from a local store gonna try keep this one organic, tape root is getting bigger still now still no leaves :(
