thats cool, i think its better to study what your doin and get everything you need and then plan out what you wanna do to have a complete successful grow.. with my first grow, the one that i did outside,i dont have a journal of it but i didn't know anything, i just stuck a pot outside with a seed in it and grew like a champ, all i did was water it and stuck it in the sun, and i used all miracle grow products, and i just let it go, and it turned out real nice, got pics of it in my pic gallery, and thats when i started studying, and anybody that tells you MG doesnt work must of never tried it, and with the lights if your only gonna grow 2 plants i think you it would be good to use like 4 cfls that way they get plenty of light. but i think the more the merrier, and i read that the cfls that i have, ones that are 3300k(spectrum) are good for the whole grow and you can see that they do a damn good job, so that way you dont have to switch for vegging and flowering you can just use the same bulbs.. just my opinion.soheres a thread that can hopefully help you out with with this..Unfortunately I don't have a grow journal up. I'm completely new to growing and am still reading every day about it, learning loads of stuff from grow journals like this one. I just started messing around with some tomato plants I germ'd. Anyways I'll likely go with cfl's when I grow for the first time. I noticed your first grow was all cfl, do you have any advice as to how much cfl light I will need if I plan on growing 1-2 plants to 3-3 1/2 feet max?
I'll take a crack at this although nobody asked me lol.... imo you want to have somewhere in the range of 6-8 26w cfls for each plant that size. It may seem like a lot but the light doesn't penetrate well and you need a bunch of lights as close to the buds as possible.Unfortunately I don't have a grow journal up.

What did you spray them with? Had you watered them before putting them outside?well the reason i went out there and got them, because it started down pouring, not to where it would hurt them though, and then i took them in the shed and sprayed them..and like i said i let them sit out there for alittle bit and then when i went out to get them they were droopin, but the were droopin before i sprayed them...
well you know what this Rose Rx is pretty good now that i seen what it does, yea it makes the plants droop afterwards but it kills everything, and they been diein for 2 days now, i keep findin adult thrips dead at the bottom of the cab.. so i've gottin over the fact that the spray makes them droop since they do such a good job of killin them little basterds,All i know as a home remedy is soap water spray. Not sure how effective it is against trips. Neem oil spray is another good one too.
thanks guys, and you know what im glad you asked about transplanting into a bigger pot because i thought the same thing today and went out and baught some 8inch red plastic pots that match the smaller ones, got'em from the same place, so i'll prolly give them about another week or so and then transplant them, or like you said maybe i'll wait until i get a female and make it a mother and do it that way, that way i dont waste all my soil and then findin out its a male, i'll be pissed, so maybe i'll wait to see what i have first, i got pics of them that i'll be postin after this. and thanks for joinin me, i appreciate it.. :tokin:Yo Sukka!
Sorry it took me so long to come check out whats going on over here and I gatta say its some pretty cool ish that i've seen so far. I like the LST'ing your doing but I must ask, have you transplanted into a larger bucket/planning on transplanting into one? From what i've heard is that transplanting is extremely important when it comes to container grows like yours and my Gen 1 cycle. Also just curious, have you found your females yet? Can't wait to do this myself and find out the damage i.e-how many plants turned out to be male and had to be killed? Cuz im assuming your doing what im doing and trying to find the best female of the group to be your mother plant?
Also what strain are those? They look pleasantly indica. Good job dude keep those babies green!
1 - infested clonesI've been real lucky (fingers crossed) and haven't had any pest issues. If we are growing inside where are the pest coming from?
Damn, I guess I cant ask my pest control company to come and spray either.1 - infested clones
2 - pets
3 - you or someone else brings bugs in on your clothes
4 - soil will often have gnats or other bugs, it's good to cook it if possible before you bring it in, including bagged soil you just bought
5 - bringing in other plants, even regular house plants can be carriers
6 - bugs just sneak in somehow or other... I've always got some bugs in my house and the grow rooms but nothing serious so far
Damn, I guess I cant ask my pest control company to come and spray either.
"Hello pest control, yes Im having a problem and I need just my closet sprayed. But you gotta keep your eyes closed while you do it.ok"?
yeah I guess that wouldn't be the smartest idea. :tokin:
