Lighting
    #348503 - 01/16/10 02:21 AM (6 years, 10 months ago)

Alright so I got some plants thinking that i could just stick them in my window for good lighting cuz hey the sun light wakes me up and keeps the room lit all day... well after classes started i realized i have just been sleeping till noon and so my room only gets a half of the sun light my sky has to offer...

my question is what is the least i will have to spend on having a proper light which is similar to morning sun that i can keep on from 6-11 for particular situation?

Yes it definitely will.  Also CFLs will keep it growing, and they are cheap.  There are better options when it comes time to flower, but you can bide your time vegging the plant with CFLs.  Daylight CFLs, 6500K, are ideal for vegging, mix in some 2700K for full spectrum and you have good vegetative light.

A cheap Timer

$5-10

CFL (Daylight Spectrum) @ Home Depot (Packs of 2/4)

$7-10

Patience

Priceless




As more time passes you may choose to invest in ferts, a grow closet/box, better lights, carbon scrubber for flowering and etc.

ya i have it quite simple now, i call it my pot-n-window tek :wink:

i clipped the tips of the bigger leaves and found this morning those flower which hung to the soil are now elevated to the rim of the pot, i suppose the clipping helps growth in the stem?

i'm very new at this, i have read lots of tips but have never actually grew weed till i got my license this week... i think i'm gonna just get a mature plant so i can learn how to care for a mother and her buds soon...
