ok so i finally got around to taking some pictures,
So my grow tent is a 4x2x5 and it is in a closet that is about 4.5x2.5x9 so there isnt much room in there.
IMG_42241.jpg


right now i got 11 plants in there but i plan on taking 7 or 8 out doors at a later date, the cfl bulbs i have in there are a 3:1 ration of 6500k:2700k is this a good idea or should i just use all 6500k for veg and then all 2700k for flower?

Funny thing about my red dragon#2 is that when i planted it i buried it too deep... about 6 inches or so. So I wanted to dig it up a little and in the process i broke her in half :( well I only found the bottom half of her and decided to germinate another seed, when i plant the seed into the soil about 2 hours later i see the top half of the original sprouting out 0_o... the top half of my broken plant started growing apparently haha. any in put on these strains im growing are very welcome, hopefully i can get the temps under control so i dont stress these plants too much, the temp are ranging from mid 70's to high 80's.

I'm having a hard time keeping the temp down in my grow tent, it's between 88 and 92 degrees, it hits around 75 for 4 or 5 hours. What kind of effect would these higher temperatures have?

:welcome: TO :420:
There are growers here that have cfl experience, I dont have but a little. I did want to tell you that I have noticed the 6500's in my T5's are excellent for the veg. cycle. As for flower I would a$$ume a combination but I think all 6500 in veg wouldn't hurt.
Can you keep the room the tent is in cooler with a/c? Or can you exhaust the air in the tent out a window or out the room somehow?
The seedlings look healthy and I am here to help if possible and I am sub'd up aka subscribed to your journal. Gave you some Reps and welcome to 420mag, you ought to love it here, bunch of experienced growers who enjoy spreading the knowledge around and unlike other sites we all usually get along well and have alot of fun. If yo get a chance take a look at my journal, the link is at the bottom in my sig.
Feel free to hit me up anytime if you need some help. You wont be able to PM private message until you have 50 posts but it looks like you'll get there pretty soon. Give it a few weeks and more folks will stop by and post on your thread.
:high-five::peace:

:welcome: to the site Raja! Everything looks good so far man. High temps are a pain in the ass I had that experience with my first grow. Your tent is the exact same size as mine but, I had a 1k hps in a sealed air cooled hood and temps were insane like yours currently are, during the day I had to keep the front open and had a big ass box fan blowing in lol. Some plants can handle high temps but your end yield will suffer as a result and you have to make sure you are on point with the watering because with temps like that the pots dry out super quick. Soon as the pot dries out the plants will wilt within like 2 hrs from my experience. If you cant get an AC for the room maybe you could try moving it out of the closet to somewhere more open and still keep it hidden cuz all that's doing is helping retain the heat that is being vented out.

Drive by +reps for everyone btw :thumb:

Unfortunately I can't move the tent, I need to have it hidden, my girlfriend my son and I recently moved in with her family to help take care of her grandparents and her parents walk into our room quite often haha. I want to avoid running an ac just to avoid the electric going any higher, but I'm gonna make a hole from that closet to another closet to vent the air out hopefully it's enough to cut the heat, it's kind of hard considering its starting to get hot here on maui. Plants seem to be doing ok with the heat right now, I think the heat might be affecting the autos seeing as they aren't growing as fast as the other plants.

Plants are coming along pretty well right now, when would be a good time to transplant them? i feel like in about a week im gonna put them into 3 gallon pots which will most likely be their home till finish. also when i transplant them I will be moving 7 of the plants out doors to finish while keeping 4 in my tent. Ill be starting them on Fox farms grow big and big bloom when i transplant. i was looking to add liquid kelp and mollases as well, is that a good idea or should I just be using fox farms only?

So its been a while since i posted pictures and alot have changed, these pictures were taken almost two weeks ago...
so this is the auto skunk mass, since taking these pictures this plant as well as the critical jack herrer auto have died, they were looking weak probably due to not getting enough light, and the day before i was about to move them outside some clothes fell on them and broke the main stem down at the base of both plants.

hopefully i didnt get the pictures mixed up, but that so far is how my grow is going, i moved the Frisian Dew and OG Kush outside so even i wont be getting to see them much also going to put the Mazar Kush and one of the strawberry Blues and Red Dragons outside, the rest will stay in my closet. Im probably going to veg them for another week and a half then start to flower them from there. they are about 6 weeks old at this point. i was going to try a ScrOG with this grow but they are all at such different heights that i just decided to tie them down. If any one has any advice for my grow it is more then welcome.

All the girls in the tent

IMG_47651.JPG


so i gave them their first feeding of Tiger Bloom, and also changed 4 of the bulbs to 23w 2700k. The bulbs are now 8 23w 2700k and 4 18w 6500k bulbs. Im looking to add 4 more bulbs, shoud i add all 2700k or 2-2700k and 2-6500? also im looking to add molasses to my waterings, how much moloasses should i be adding to the water? At this point in time the girls in my closet will be getting Fox Farms Big Bloom and Tiger Bloom along with Liquid Kelp( not really sure what this is for??) and i want to add molasses if anyone can tell me how much i should be using...

molasses is added at one teaspoon per gallon. you want cool white 6500 kelvin light bulbs for vegetative growth and warm white 2700 kelvin light bulbs for flowering. if supplementing vegetative growth you want a 2:1 ratio for 6500 kelvin:2700 kelvin.

taken from another site

THE BENEFITS OF KELP AS FERTILIZER

The immediate benefit obtained from kelp can be attributed to the release of auxins, cytokinins and gibberellins. These plant growth hormones, required in small quantities, are essential for cell division and cell elongation, basic functions of plant growth. Increased levels of plant hormones can result in enhanced seed germination, early emergence, stimulated root and shoot growth, increased fruit set and decreased fruit drop.

When used as a fertilizer supplement, kelp is an excellent source of chelated minerals necessary for proper plant growth. Kelp meal acts as a slow release fertilizer, slowly breaking down and releasing its nutrients. The potential benefit of a kelp fertilizer supplement increases each year as it contributes to the soil organic matter.

Right on, my lighting right now for flower is 2:1 2700k:6500k. I didn't get a chance to look at them today as I got off of work early. Am I supposed to release my tie downs as the plants get bigger?

So I decided to buy an led light, I went with a blackstar light and so far it seems legit. About 3 seconds after turning the light on the leaves were reaching up like they were out side in the sun. Right now I have the 240w led and 8 2700k cfls. Already thinking about getting another led.
