ncdude, fratt's right. i'd do a couple of grows before i started using any enhancers & don't go overboard, when u do. some strains go sorta' berserk on enhancers. ss ultra is a fine product but go easy at 1st. i think i'd learn my strain 1st. just a thought, but it's u're grow. GOOD LUCK!
aka, i see 2 problems w/u're grow. 1)i don't believe 6" will be big enough...hope i'm wrong. 2) u're plants will grow just fine w/cfl's but flowering/finishing will be more difficult. don't get me wrong, lots of good growers do it...it's just harder to get them to finish. u might try using a shorter "lites on" time & make sure there's NO lite leaks. don't forget to have plenty of airflow. hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!
ok, let's not complicate this.
I bought BushMaster to keep the heights of the plants in check because I knew the space I had left after the lights and the pots would diminish greatly. Now, will the Bushmaster work? I don't know but I'm praying it does. As for the time " lights on and off", Jorge Cervantes Growers Bible says and I quote " Fewer hours of daylight (e.g.14 hours) increase the number of females. Longer days (18 hours) make more male plants." Hence the decision to do 16 hours on and 8 hours off. Was just trying to increase the odds in my favor. Before I forget, can I keep the light at 2 inches for the remainder of the grow? Thx paw-paw, for taking the time to throw some insight my way I appreciate that.
jorge is right, so why not take it further? why not just do 12/12 from seed & save the chemicals for when u really need them? You're right paw-paw, I'm definitely one of those new growers you're talking about. I'm stressing out before there's anything to really stress about. I'm glad we spoke before I passed this stress to my plants. And I think I'll try the 12/12 from seed, I have nothing to lose and everything to gain (I have a baggie full of bagseed from previous purchases to experiment with). As you might have figured out by now, whenever you answer my questions I always come up with another......sooo.......can you tell me when you think I should start using the stuff I bought (snow storm ultra, gravity, molassas) since I never have grown starting 12/12 before. I'd hate to start to soon or to late and end up killing the plants. P.S. I just want to mention the other stuff I have so you can tell me what, in your opinion, you think I should use or not , thx again paw-paw. ( foxfarms tiger bloom, big bloom and grow big, jamaican, indonesian and mexican bat guano). Btw the Grower's Bible also said that high nitrogen and low phosphurus also equals a greater chance of females, which explains the guano's. Did I ever mention I'll be using OC+? Beebop76's grow was amazing, thx for that info.
