Amazing grow!! I am attempting a CFL grow as well. I have 2 plants in a 5 gallon bucket. I may have to change reservoir size later with having 2 plants. This thread has been very encouraging for me. I have been nervous about how to proceed now that I'm getting steady growth. I knew going in it was going to be a long grow. Seeing the return you got from your patience is very inspiring. Love all the pics and info you brought into it as well. A perfect blueprint for a first timer.
I currently have 150W 6500K CFL's going. 6 total bulbs so far. I noticed you had a lot of stretch after veg. I have seen other journals that used CFL's putting them right next to the plants. In most of your earlier pics, the lights are quite a bit higher than the most people would suggest. Did you notice a difference with the lower Kelvin lights? Did you ever go above the 2700K mark on any of ur bulbs? I am planning on grabbing a bunch more lights soon so any info would be most appreciated.
Once again, amazing job!! Makes me feel very good about my future.
