Sounds nice. You may want to shoot for a more reflective material than foil. Its far less reflective than most people think. Mylar is one of the best. Ive found that a simple flat white paint can be more effective than foil or mirrors.

I tried foil and I got much bushier growth with my flat white drywall. Flat white reflects every light spectrum back. My personal opinion. However, in my personal opinion I like music about clowns, dead bodies and cheap pop. U know the deal Stoob. Detroit City.

Aluminum foil is trouble all around. It is meant to reflect heat, so with hotter lights it can make the grow area get way too hot. Also, the crinkles create hot spots of reflected light which can burn the plants. Go with the flat white walls instead.

Not to mention it doesn't last long, tears easily and is conductive with electricity. Flat white is better. Its been proven and most grow bibles out there also recommends flat white over aluminum foil. If you still wish to use the foil, the back side works better than the front side. It gives a more even light distrabution with less chance of hot spots.

ok, well two of my plants have a set of yellow leaves. what is that from, i havent been overwatering or feeding it nutes. anyone have a n idea what its from

Depends. Overall yellowing? Yellowing on just the tips? With young vegging plants, a lack of nitrogen can be a common occurence. Also, working with soils you dont have experience with can lead to pH imbalance which can cause yellowing. Pics help the most. Id lean towards a nitrogen defi..

k yea that might be it hhgreenhand, there are only a few yellow tips on only one plant. the only nutes that the plants are getting right now is the color burst, which is mixed in with the soil but i didnt mix it in with like the first few inches of soil so it wouldnt hurt the seedlings. two of the ladies are looking really good and bushy, but the other three are lagging behind but still healthy. pics will be up as soon as i can get some batteries...

25 days since they sprouted from the medium? Do you have temp issues? Looks like you had a few late comers that sprouted. The bottom plant looks 25, the others look stunted if they all popped up at the same time.

Mate, you clearly have a phosphorous deficiency. I would foiliar feed for a week with a dilute flowering fert, to pump up your Phosphorous. The dark green colour and the purpling are indicators.
Purpling: accumulation of anthocyanin pigments; causes an overall dark green color with a purple, red, or blue tint, and is the common sign of phosphate deficiency. Some plant species and varieties respond to phosphate deficiency by yellowing instead of purpling. Purpling is natural to some healthy ornamentals.

^Really, I thought it was overwatering when they were 1st sprouted although watering seems fine now. Wasn't going to mention it because it sometimes confuses people but it helps explain why the plants have that short squat like position. They're a lil young to develope that kind of deficiancy and he is using a good soil mix but I could be wrong.
