Good stuff bro.I'm in the same boat as yourself and am looking forward to getting this show on the road.I'm gonae be starting 6 skunk #1 plants on Monday,well that's if they arrive but I'm confident they'll be on time.I have a 400w hps light so I reckon 4 plants are the maximum but I'm not expecting the full 6 to sprout but no doubt with my luck they all will.lol.anyways,I will look out for you n see how your getting on.peace out.

There's a how to guide in "gallery" for uploading photos, I couldn't get mine to rotate. And that's cool I've added you I think :D I've started off with some lemon haze no2 I've also just brought some zambezee white widow autofor my 2nd grow and an afghan kush ryder auto freebie which I'm adding to this grow once the seed has popped

Sounds lush mate.I'm just sticking with one strain the now till I find my feet or should I say green fingers.lol.I read somewhere that skunk was reasonably easy to maintain?I've actually read that much stuff that at one point I didn't know what I was doing!lol.so glad I'm getting to grips with this and advice is only a few clicks away.

That's it there is a lot of ways to do things but finding the right ingredients for your particular plant gets a bit confusing as you just said it just getting your head around the basics. And I'm only adding the freebie to compare growth using the ufo as I changed from a smaller unit to the ufo after 2 weeks and I have more than enough room and they both run on a 18/6 light cycle so I don't see the harm

looking good :) did you press the soil down firm so that when the plants are big enough for a transplant you can keep the soil all together and not disturb the roots? i mean so it comes out whole and soil dosnt crumble away (also this can leave air pockets when you transplant)

I just put mine straight into a 8" pot, I did think about using different sized pots but decided not to and my babies are doing fine I just didn't want to move and transfer them just in case I damaged them
