*first grow* white widow secret jardin grow, help along the way?
    #398684 - 04/09/10 02:36 AM (6 years, 7 months ago)

We started these two little white widow clones on March 6. We are running two 4ft 54w 6500k florescents in a 4.5ft secret jardin. Watering with Fox Farm grow big every other water, which is about every 3-4 days or so. We are in 6 qt. pots i think and are about to transplant to a more suitable pot. We are also running a 24/7 lighting for a few more weeks, then of course switching to a 12/12 schedule.

We are also planning on adding in two more 4 ft. florescent in about a week or so.



So, looking pretty good eh?

:laugh:

haha sorry about the pictures!

we are running two 54watt 6500k 4ft. T5

we plan on adding in two more oof these 4ft. strips in a week or so and we are going to red spectrum for the flowering of course.

starting to smell bad in my room event though this is very well insulated (so i thought), any suggestions on odor control? We have a good sized budget, but would like to explore cheaper options.

If you have a decent budget, I would highly recommend flowering under a HPS light. Flowering under tubes is sure to disappoint you.

their spectrum is just not as good as high pressure sodium, high pressure sodium has a red spectrum which denses up the buds alot, even moreso than metal halide.

and we are considering the carbon filter, looking through what we can get any suggestions on any specific ones?

nope, i think most would suffice, they remove the smell extremely efficiently. na it wouldnt be as good coz they not the ideal spectrum for plants like high spectrum is for flowering

White Widow is already known for low yields, and with the thin wispy buds you'll get from the tubes, it wouldn't be worth the energy. They veg the plants pretty well, thus giving you the impression that they could bud them pretty well too.. In my experience, they really sucked for flowering, it was the crappiest yield I've ever seen.

If you don't want to or can't go HID, you would still benefit from going to some decent watt CFL's, they allow you to concentrate the light much more effectively. You may have 216 watts, but it's spread over 4ft of length and when you think about lumens to the square foot, they don't put out much at all.
