First grow update!
    #304510 - 10/27/09 03:00 AM (7 years, 1 month ago)

Hey!

There are 3 B.C. seeds
Two Oregon organics seeds.
And one purple seed.
using two 13watt CFL's and a UV lamp.



All of them are doing pretty well.

No more miracle grow.
Now using Scott's mixed with sphagnum.

Please give me tips!!!

Did you germinate them first?

After a week you should see growth...

I would move your CFLs closer, like, probably almost touching the rim of those cups since the soil level is much lower than that.  You may also think about getting some more or higher powered CFLs

I'd like to comment on the Scott's + moss, but I'm not 100% sure on that one...

Really would have liked to have seen you with some perlite in that soil mix.  Not sure if your drainage is going to be ok with that mix, but we will see soon enough.

Drainage seems fine,
and it hasn't quite been a week.
And of course I germinated them

Scott's and moss are all I really have to work with atm.
The next batch of soil when they are moved into bigger pots will be 1337.

One sprouted today!

Cool to see a sprout.  Very cute baby.

Do not water.  Do not feed.  That is my tip for this stage above all else.

Oh and remove that tin foil.  Get Mylar or a flat white surface for reflecting.  Obviously  it does not matter yet, but once they get growing you would be best to Mylar or flat white all the surfaces of that glass box.

Sometimes you can get it at Home Depots etc.  Obviously, grow shops and online as well.  You can by a cheap version of it in the dollar stores usually it is sold as wrapping paper that is silver reflective.

Going with a flat white is also easy, any white, non-shiny construction paper will do the job.  Flat white paint as well.

Survival bags are also a cheap form of Mylar and will work.

Wait 1 week before watering.  Then check them carefully, you can check obviously more often, but you want them dry.  Use a bamboo skewer as a dipstick to check for any moisture.  Lifting the pot will also give you an idea.  But more likely than not, when you are positive they need water, they are still fine.

You will not feed for 3 weeks unless they show you signs of needing Nutes.

Listen to the man Azyle.  But before you go out and purchase mylar, give us some clue as to your grow environment.  Also- move your CFLs closer now so that the stems do not stretch.  And get more, bigger lights sooner rather than later.

OK cool, I moved the cfl's closer to the plants and will upgrade to a 26watt soon.

I have a 500w HPS, should I be using it yet?
When should I start using my light timer?

Yeah I'm not sure how big you should let them get before flowering.  It depends on how big you want them and that depends on your lighting (assuming that your lights are you limiting factor here).
  Dude I have never heard of a 500 watt HPS im pretty sure that they dont exist.  What do you have in terms of lighting besides the CFLs?

I have two UV lamps, one is up.
The other needs a bulb.
I think I'm going to order a few LED grow lights off ebay.

Get those lights like 2 inches from those plants. 13watters are very small.

Get rid of the UV light ASAP.

Yeah wtf is a UV lamp?  Do your research on those LEDs before you invest.

Yeah, that UV lamp is gonna burn the shit out of your plants.
If you decide to use them, wait until late flowering, and then only like 5-10 minutes a day.

I think those 500w lights exist.  I'd be curious to see what kind of light the OP has.

I stand corrected.  This could be a legit grow.
