first time grower in tent
    #429657 - 06/07/10 05:35 PM (6 years, 6 months ago)

okso im in about week 5 for my plant. i started with 2 but lightning burnt out my light bulb so i put them in a window for about a week till my new bulb came in. one plant shrivaled and died but the other is still thriving. i have the new bulb its a 400 hps in a 3ft by 5 ft grow tent. my plant doesnt seem to be growing as fast as some videos i have watched but i am patient :-) my question is how long do i keep the light on per day? ive heard 18 hrs 16 hrs 12 hrs which is it? what is the best amount of time per day to grow a healthy strong plant?

ok so 18 on is what ill continue. im not too sure what to be looking for with my plant what stage it shud be at etc. im going to try and take some pics to put up so others can see and help me out but right now its about 5.5inches tall with 10 branches 6 branches are abt 3in long then the leaves while the other four branches are abt half an inch grown out. does that seem really slow for growth after 5 weeks?

a picture is worth a thousand words so... try to get a picture where the branches come off the main stem for early preflowers around the 4-5-6th node.

Yeah.  If you have a camera take pics and people here will be helpful if your plant has a problem  Also- post more details about your grow and maybe we could explain the slow growth or at least give you tips on how to accelerate it.  18 hours of light and 6 hours of dark is likely the most efficient light cycle- your plants cant process more than about 18 hours worth of light a day.

put up some fly paper traps and keep your grow area cleaner.

the grow area is clean its just the tent is out on my porch which is screened in idk how they got in there its an old house but they arent really flying around ive tried the fly paper but they stay just on the soil moving around not so much flying above it to get caught know what i mean. someone told me to put like a glass of wine or beer in there and they will go to that instead. idk if its true or not they werent too sure when they threw the idea out there. and i dont want to do anything that cud hurt my plants. pictures are on their way i just gotta upload and get them here now. shud be up in abt an hour. cant wait for the feed back

Not bad so far.  I like your simplistic approach.  Your instincts where correct though.  The yellow coloration is an indication that you need nitrogen.  Fertilize in your next watering and you should see explosive growth.

ok so i got the miracle grow  feed. how often do u give the nutes? do i just follow the bottle and only give it once every 2 weeks or is it different with weeds where you can give them more?

i would find some 1 who sells fox farm products and go from there.. i walked into my local hydro store and was picking up some rooting hormones and acted all stupid like about the whole thing and he was right on.. knew what i was growing.. i hear miracle grow is bad nute wise but all my plants where grown in there dirt cous its made regionally and ours has a lot of N like 18-5-9 some shit..  you would want a high N for veg and high P-K for flower..what is the N-P-K on that miracle grow?
