First Grow, week 4 FLOWERING, 250 watt hid+184 watt cfl in Soil. July 9, 2012
    #623794 - 05/21/12 06:23 PM (4 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone!
This is my first grow. I bought a 32x32 in grow tent, 250 watt digital ballast, 4" fan+filter combo and a reflector which turned out to be way too big. It basically takes up the whole tent (lengthwise)
Im using Fox Farm soil and will be using fox farm 3 part nutrients. Also I have botanicare's liquid karma and cal-mag.
The strains are:
Honey B x2
Dutch Passion Blueberry x2
Violator Kush
Afgan Kush Ryder (auto)
La Diva (auto)

I poped so many because I didnt think they'd all survive, but they did and as far as I can tell theyre doing good :smile: heres day 18 pics:

In order: tent, temperature, afgan k ryder, honey b, honey b, blueberry, blueberry, violator kush, family photo w/ some parsley & basil on thr right.

    #624128 - 05/23/12 11:56 PM (4 years, 6 months ago)

starting to have some issues. First of all is it me or do all except one of the girls look really strechy? Secondly the upper leaf tips got burned overnight, but as u can see in the pic, the temps are fine, even though the light is only 12in away from the tops (also in a pic).
should I get more lights (couple cfls?) and pick the 250 watter up a few inches? Try to lower the temps? Start tieing them down?

Also, 1 plant has white blotches on the leafs. Anyone know what could cause that? This is the only one that stayed short, but with the same amount of leaf "sets". hope the picture is clear enouph, if not lmk.

Get the light around 6 inches from the plant as long as the temps stay okay.  That should take care of the stretching.

Thanks. But theres some burned tips as is, even at 80 F. or are a couple burned tips worth avoiding streching?

Burned tips is usually a sign of nute burn, not light burn.

It's probably the nutes that are already in the soil.  My blueberry and GDP get a little tip burn with FFOF.  Some strains are a little more sensitive than others.  Get the lights closer man.


No need to start feeding yet.

Thanks a lot guys!
And I realised I cantlower the light because it only covers a small area that way, even with the oversized reflector. I decided to add a few cfls (about 100watt's worth), but payday is saturday so they'll have to strech a little more :frown:

Would superthrive help them recover from the burns? Now that I think about it they have been growing slower for a couple of days. Also I watered 4 days ago and the dirt is still moist.

I put in 8 23 watt cfls, so hopefully they wont strech more.
The temps are 80-83F (IS THIS NORMAL?)

How long would you guys say I should keep vegging? I means its already getting cramped and I read that they get 3x bigger in flowering.

Also I decided to try lst. It's the violator kush (tallest one).
