When should I stop using Florescents
    #208119 - 03/23/09 11:02 PM (7 years, 8 months ago)



My plants are about 6" with petals growing from the nodes. I plan on only using HPS  to keep costs down through vegetative growth thru flowering.

OR can I just buy more long ass florescents and florescents the shit out of em?

My early grows were completely done under 4 ft fluoresent lights.
Do all the veg with them still.

Potency was good to great. Yield is small. Buds are light, nothing like what come out from the 1000 watt.

Yeah, if flowered under fluoros the buds will be really light and fluffy, not dense, and only the tops that receive a lot of light will mature. You can cut the buds when they're ready and then wait for the lower buds to mature after.

As for the question posted to the thread, you'll be fine using the fluoros for veg and flowering under HPS, you can even use your HPS for veg if you want to speed things up a little, depending on what kind of system you decide to use. Obviously if you're doing a SOG perpetual harvest you wont be using the HPS for veg but the option is there.

Good luck to you.
