Hello golden girl and :welcome: to 420.
Great going. :cheer:
Seeing how that light puts off little heat you can lower it...Say foot away from your Plants.
Try and raise the little ones, By putting something under them to get all the plants a the same height for better and even light distribution.
We are very happy you are here sharing your grow with 420. :bravo:
Please any questions...Post them... Someone is always here. ;)
Happy Growin' golden girl.
:goodluck:
 
Re: gilden girl fist time growing and need help plz

I think if you are planning on growing everything in those pictures you should get a 600 watt or 1000 of you have the extra cash. I still kick myself for buying a 400 when I looked at the price difference for a 1000. Was like a $70-80 difference.

Re: gilden girl fist time growing and need help plz

I've got a 6oo watt hps bulb just need to get a reflector and ballast but my friend said the tent gets to hot and the way i have lay the tent down the light will be too close to the plants I am making a room size 4ft Length 6ft height with white black plastic and that 6oo hps so I intend on using the hps for my flower room and i want to keep the tent for veging so maybe i need to add another cfl light or some fluorescent tube

Re: gilden girl fist time growing and need help plz

Hi guys as i said in my last post we moved the tent and stood it vertically after some advice from a friend I think the light needs to be lowered a bit and the clones put on something bigger to get them closer to the light


this ones looking great




unfortunately this one was exposed to a fan heater it is starting to pick back up




I am a little concerned about this one does not too healthy




Jim bean clones looking good not too sure about the bubble gum and cheese cuttings

Don't worry they will be fine! The side branches will grow up to become tops more cola's, it will grow out more then before like a bush, but it will still get height and grow up. :peace2:

The CFL are a cheap way to go until you find a cheap MH or HPS. Here is a really good post on CFL bulbs!

420 Magazine ®

Here is a pic of a 400 watt CFL fixture I made it is dam bright...

It now has a vent in the top, Good luck!
 
Re: golden girls first time growing and need help plz

Lower that light!! Pound those babies with that light! I read something from someone about getting a MH bulb... Waste of money in my opinion, you will see very little difference; if any, using a MH bulb over a HPS. CFLs and florescents are probably the cheapest way to veg and they can get the job done very well. Just make sure you get some CFL bulbs in the correct spectrum. The 2700k ones are more for flowering since they are more in the red/orange spectrum. Get some 5600k or 6000k bulbs since they are more in the blue spectrum which is good for vegging.

Mule posted a great link about CFL bulbs!! And also Mule very sexy CFL fixture haha i love it.

If you are planning on buying a 600w HPS you will need a air-cooled reflector and an inline fan so you can put the lamp as close to your plants as possible. I use a 600w HPS for flowering and some 2700k CFL bulbs for side lighting. I bought a thermometer that has a wired sensor so I wire it directly to where the tops of my plants are so I know how hot they are feeling and also lets me know how low I can put my light.
