Ok so, about 6months ago my friend got his med card and bought a clone (bought the clone around march) well they went to home depot and got some 3 dollar, what looks to be filler dirt or that top dirt crap that holds in moisture. Well when I first found out he had it, he had it on a 12/12 cycle. I guess there are people who run 12/12 from seed, but anyhow, when I found out I told him it either needs to be on a 24/0 cycle (mainly from seedling to veg growth) or an 18/6 cycle (from veg to flowering), then the 12/12 was for flowering.

A while later I actually saw the plant and light he was using, and told him that the light he was using just wasn't going to cut it. I told him he needed to go buy a 400W MH light for veg, and a 400W HPS light for flowering. Well about 2 months ago he came to me and told me his situation and about how he can't have the plant anymore cause of his GF's parents. So he brought it up to me (didn't tell me he was bringing it). When I got it, the poor plant was half dead. So I put it under a 95W spot light (mainly because I can't afford any good lights right now). Anyway since I got it, the plant has done a lot better, I replanted it in some fox farms soil. It has some leave droop but I think that is from over watering. I did water the hell out of it, but that was also my 1st time replanting one of these plants ever.

Right now as I mentioned earlier, the plant has drooping leaves, but it doing A LOT better. I chopped more that half of the old leaves off, in good proportion because I know if I were to cut off more that 50% of the plants leaves at once it would probably die. So I chopped 3 off and let it grow then chopped 2 more off and let it grow. Ill post pics in a sec :).

Anyhow, I have been thinking about what kind of grow I really want to do. and I am thinking Hydroponics under CFL lighting..... I have a cool hydro bucket, aka Bubble Bucket, setup in mind. I am just not to clear on the nutrient mixes. But here are the pics of the plant.

.......Edit, it is taking FOREVER to upload Due to using the sewer connection <.< (jokes lol.... my internet seriously just sucks... I should be only a sec :)

I hope this doesn't stretch the page to much x.x If it does I will fix it x.x

Edit: No my walls are not pink either, my camera just sucks :/
This is the plant after I chopped off almost all of the dead leaves. (in 2 week intervals. The day I got the plant I chopped off 3 of the dead leaves. 2 weeks later I chopped of the other 3 dead leaves.

Everything under the top 3 main leaves is new.

This is the plant today, Still giving it resting time lol.

On another note this is the lid to my Hydro bucket

I know it is not the best but I am doing what I can with the money I get right now :(
