First Grow Questions
    #402626 - 04/16/10 10:35 AM (6 years, 7 months ago)

I plan on growing a single plant, but have some questions first. I've looked around but haven't been able to find some solid answers, so I apologize if these are common questions.

I plan on growing the plant in a fairly big closet.

1) is 1 40w CFL bulb, or just a regular fluorescent bulb enough for lighting?

2) how often should feeding take place?

3) how often should watering take place?

Any help is appreciated :thumbup:

that is definitely not enough for lighting, you should feed as much as your plants look like they can take/handle imo. once every 3 or so days with a 15-5-5 chemical nutrient in vegetative growth and with a low as possible but high phosphorus potassium food for flowering, when your plants get big and are in pots they need a good watering every 2 days id say, in the summet heat though daily.

if i were you id talk to true herb crystal about the CFL growing he is currently completing an all cfl grow himself and his little lady is looking very nice

I am currently growing two plants under 6 26w CFL's and one 23w CFL. They are doing perfect! I LST'd them a few days ago and are now starting to bush out.

So, like I said in your other thread the more light you can get the merrier. I bought a three pack of 23 watters and a 6 pack of 26 watters at walmart for twenty bucks.
