Germ at least 10 seeds in Jiffy Cubes or Rockwool. Wait till they show sex and keep the strongest female. Just germing 1 seed is not a good idea.

That space is large enough for several plants. I can grow 24 plants in a similar sized space btw. I flower once they are around 10 inches. I end up with 2ft plants. Just something for you to consider.

And don't use that MG soil. The MG organic line is much better. You can control the nutes more. I avoid any soil that says it will fert for 90 days.

Uhh, your plants are going to die if you are using incandescent house bulbs. At the very least get T5s or CFL's. A 400W HPS is your best option.

a 100watt CFL or a 100watt equavilent CFL?
went implies that a store sold it.. either you are very lucky to have a store that sells CFL's that powerful, or you got the equavilent which totally suck.

I've only been able to find 45Watt (2900 lumens) CFLs.. they grow N. Rustica pretty well though.

I was talking along the lines of a Hydrofarm Reflector and a 125 or 200W CFL. The equivalent bulbs work. It just takes a lot of them. Really, its cheaper going the Hydrofarm route.

Nah man a CFL grow light.



There is nothing equivalent about this light. It uses 200W of actual power. If you can screw the bulb into the lamp on your nightstand, its probably not efficient enough at growing plants.

Halogen won't work either. Ya gotta have HPS, MH, or CFL. LEDs work to, but not worth the cost and not effective enough IMO. Google "Grow Light". You'll find something.
