    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    Well get ready for some explosive growth once you get em under the HIDs. My advice though, is to just go slow and get what you need. Then, when you get to the point of really needing the other lights, you will have learned more by then and had more time to assess your skills and grow situation. I feel that by then, your ultimate purchase decisions will be different than what you thought you wanted earlier in your grow. That is how I'm approaching it myself.

    On my first HID, Ijust watched the local craigslist for a while and picked up a good deal to start off. I can always sell it again for near what I got it for if I need to.


    Well, have fun; I know I am.

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    now for an update. on the tron.



    main cola












    and for the clones. ive already transplanted both of them for about two weeks already. theyre about a month and a week old. but idk when your supposed to start counting time for clones, so im calling it day 30. not gonna count the original week because they had just been cut and what not. so anyways. 2 weeks in the stryofoam cups and 2 weeks after being transplanted. i topped the one, the other is branching out like crazy anyways so i figured id leave that one go. anyways heres some pics

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    I like watching your journal as your seedlings were about the same size as the clones I started in my tron back on June 20th. They got pulled out eventually and thrown under the 400 watt HPS. Watching yours lets me guesstimate where mine would have been if I stayed with the tron.

    Steady as she goes. See you at harvest.

    sounds good i cant wait to harvest. true. i also should i have only kept it at one in the tron. but you live and you learn. im keeping my eyes out for a MH/HPS switchable light system, or at least a HPS light.

    Re: First Grow. Phototron box.

    so i got a question for all you pros out there. being this is in a phototron with cfls. should i trim some of the smaller branches that arent getting much light? will this help. ive only trimmed one branch out it only had about 3 sets of leaves and the the cluster of hairs at the the top, and was like 5" long. so it wasnt doing shit,and it opened a lot of space. any input would be appreciated.

    The manufacturer of the phototron, PI, has recommendations on the manicure of the plants. They would of had you cutting away the larger leaves and like every other node on side braches. This I assume would shorten the internode distances and promote branching resulting in many budsites for the plants in the small space. Their flowering is most unorthodox though as they would only go 12/12 for 2 - 3 weeks, then finish a flower run 24/0. My guess is to just get the plants into the flower mode and then get them as much light as possible before they revert to veg mode. They don't harvest the whole plant but instead remove individual buds as they appear to be mature. They would be small buds though.

    In your case, trim what doesn't get light. Look at my ScrOG grow to see how much can get removed from a plant and have it still recover. I was fairly aggressive on my last pruning.

    yeah my lady is a little to far into flower, to trimas much as you did, i did however cut out about 5 or 6 branches that just had the cluster fuck of pistols at the top.

    but yeah im not trying to do the take a small bud here and a small bud there. so im just gonna let it go in 12/12 unitl i feel its ready, ill probably end up borrowing my buddys scope to watch the trichromes as the turn amber.
