    If you do this, your plants will cease flowering, and your yield will be diminished. The plant will stall, and attempt to re-veg.

    Re: lighting

    You want 100% of the hairs to turn brown, and more than 30% of your trichomes turning amber, or you are picking an unripe plant and will have a diminished yield and potency. Up to you mate. I would suspect you have been flowering for 40 -50 days. Am I right. Most plants finish out 60 or more days, so you are selling yourself short.
    Why don't you supplement the clones by bringing them out into the light during the dark cycle in your grow room.

    Re: lighting

    I will take your advice I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP. I have only been doing this for 6 months. I found my 17yo son trying to grow a plant in his closet with a reading lamp 6 months ago. I told him lets do this the right way. I work in the electrical supply business so i got 3 of the new t5 ho 4ft 4 bulb fixtures and turned my walkin closet it a grow room. these fistures are great they do not put of any heat but they put out major lumes and energy effecent . I tried a 400 wat hid fixtures but they put out so much heat with the t5 type no worries of humidity /heat .

    thanks again

    Your like every little kids dream come true . Make sure you guys stay discrete in order to ensure your safety and your sons future. Don't be using thousands of watts and as you've already covered, keep the heat low. Using three t5's means you may have to watch a stank exhaust.

    I envy you. One of my boys is an officer in the Australian Army and a straight dye, so I won't get the chance.

    Re: lighting

    Having nothing to say about the actual subject of the thread I will say that I love smoking with the old man. He's one of my 2 co-conspirators on my own grow project.

    I wish I could say that I grew up smokin with the old man, but the truth is I was pretty much a clone of the establishment drones. Ganja=crack. It finally took a red head with the largest set of.. uhh.. well.. Anyway, I started smoking later in life.

    If I had kids I'd prefer they experimented with dope over drugs and booze any day. Even if the BS was true and it made him/her some kind of lifeless stoner loser. There are worse things to be. I know plenty of people who don't earn 6 figures, drive older cars, live in smaller places and yes smoke weed. I also know they're usually pretty happy people. I don't know a single person who deals with lifes frustrations by going home, getting high and then beating his wife, kids, pets, ect.. I know plenty of seeming normal people who become totally different people with a few drinks in them.

    Anyway, this isn't the time or place.

    One thing that is actually ON topic though is that I was told that with Floro's you didn't get good light penetration and also they tended to produce lighter buds. Now I'm better informed about lights thanks to the reading I've done here, but I was still biased into believing that if you can cool a HID light it's the best way to go still. If you were willing to spend the money on CF's and regular floro's could you get HID results? I like my buds dense!

    Buds on the only plant I let grow up and out were very fluffy. The 12/12 from seed done under mixed spectrum cfls (430 watts worth) were as tight as they get. Granted the tall girl had a lot more sativa in her as well. I think if the lights are placed correctly and you mix the red and blues with enough bulbs, it can be done.

    and one asshole cop with something to prove could screw up his life for a long time. What I meant by a stank exhaust is the exhaust ventilation for your girls in flower. It will be very pungent without a filter.

    Since he owns the house and doesnt need to hide it from his son is tere really a need for a ventilation system? like i mean unless you live in apartment-style husing or really close to neighbors. just seems kinda like needless effort unless the room gets super hot
    If everybody smoked a blunt to relieve their mind what could be a better place
