    am i doing OK?

    well this is my first grow and i was wanting some input on how you all think I'm doing so far. here are some pics. I'm growing under 4-300watt cfls with a lumens output of 3900 each in a small space about 2 1/2 feet wide by 3 feet deep by 5 feet tall i watter when the soil is dry with a gallon bottle of water in that i add:
    a drop of supper thrive
    1 tsp of vigoro all purpose plant food 24-8-16
    30ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide
    I'm also using a diy co2 reactor witch is just yeast sugar and water in a pop bottle
    im also on day 42 from seed if that helps any

    Yep, coming along well. Do you know the pH of your soil?

    PH is WAY high. PH should not be higher than 6.5 with 6.2 being even better. 7.4 is alkaline and cannabis likes its soil to be acidic instead. I want to know where you got 300watt CFL's? I use 65 watt CFL's that put out 6500 lumens each but it's still only a 65 watt bulb. A 300 watt cfl should be putting out 25000 lumens or more. Or is it possible that your 300watts is the incandescent equivelient and the bulbs are really something like 40watts?
