    They start to show sex around 4 - 5 weeks then begin to flower after that.

    these plants want to come up with leaves on top (of course) but the grow with long stems. am i not using enough light ? i have read/studied lupey journal and he uses LOTS of light and plants emerge 'normally'. right now am using 4 40w fl bulb fixtures in 10'x10' room. am thinking i need much more light.

    . A wise person on here told me rule of thumb is 50w per square foot. If you wanna use cdl lighting you may need to use higher powered one's. I was doing the same exact thing as you. My first plant stretched like crazy.

    I got this app lupey. Holy crap this is amazing. Try drinking with your friends and using the geforce one and see who can hit the best out of 3 punches! my smart phone would only ready up to 10,000 lux but my girlfriends phone would read max. I think you need a smartphone with a inferred camera to take full advantage of the lux meter!

    Less than 15000 lux causes spindly stretchy growth
    15000-50000 lux ideal for vegitative cycle
    45000-65000 lux ideal for flowering cycle

    from my little experience the light IS the biggest factor. can't overdue the light . wanna waste time and 'money' , don't use enough light. your suggestions are right on lupey, thks.

    Re: Northern Lights autoflower

    Lupey, do you use 18-6 from the very beginning, or only as she's starting to flower? I've got 4 Northern Lights started, but they seem to be moving really slowly. The end of the 2nd week was yesterday. I'm using Coco Coir and General Hydroponics products mixed as per Nebula Haze at groweedeasy.com. I started them in a space bucket. They've got (2) 120mm fans running and 138 watts of CFL (6x23 watts), 7 inches above them. Is that too close? Temps are between 65 and 78 all the time and lights are on 24/7 right now (for the first 2 weeks.

    Appreciate any advice
