I'm on my first real Indoor grow, too, kinda...

I use Daylight(6500K) CFLs for vegging.
The 'SofttWhite' bulbs in your pic (2700K?) are better for flowering.

Cool thanks I wasn't sure I just got these.. They should all still work either way right? Maybe just less yield.

I do have these two more bulbs I found too:


Not quite high enough K still, but I was going to throw them in once the plants got bigger. I will prob swap out two bulbs for now too.

Also I was wondering, if any one knows, what's up with that bulb on the right? How does that work where it has 3 different lumens and watts?


... And so high k/lumens if for veg and lower k/lumens is better for fruiting?

Also how many bulbs would you say of the ones you posted would be minimum for 1 plant? (The 6500k)

That's a 3 way bulb , and gives 3 different light levels if your lamp has a 3 way switch.
Not really necessary for growing.
And 2-4 bulbs at 2800 lumens each Is probably enough, I think, for your needs.(1-2 plants)

I've got 10 - 6500k CFLs for my dozen or so vegging clones,
    and 14 - 2700k bulbs for the  3 to 6 plants I flower at one time.
My space is tiny, only 22 inches deep x 34 wide.

I know HID and LED would perform better, But overall,
I'm really happy with the quality of the end product from this CFL grow....:toke:
The buzz is as good or better than anything I'd get from the streets,
and I'm sure the taste will improve with some proper curing tek.

Nice I would be happy if I got anything like that.

I have kinda a plan I was hoping for.:
I will separate those two from the big one into their own pots.
I will fruit those normally, but I was thinking I want to let the big one get.. big. And I want to keep it from fruiting and get clones from it while it grows..
All this while hoping I got females and not 100% sure what the big plant is
Lol. If they just get a lot of light it'll keep them from fruiting?

I like your design, the plant should stay veggitative and keep growing with 16hrs on 8hrs off i think... as long as they aren't autos like mine.

Here is my first grow

Looking good brah!

You goofy kids and your cfl lights. Just think how much more bud you'd get if you used the exact same wattage your wasting on cfl lights right now but in HID lights.

Remember cfl lights are hotter then HID lights.

It takes 5 times the wattage in cfl lights (actually more but I'm being nice) to get the same light as HID. To equal the light put out by 1 400 watt bulb you'd need 2000 watts of cfl light. That puts off way more heat then the HID lights does. Remember if it's not putting the energy into making light it's making heat.


400 watt HID and some dixie cups and more then a half pound

I have a question as a new grower as well, you have some fatty looking nugs and plants out of those solo cups... did you not get root-bound? how did they grow in those?

I've been growing since the 80s and somebody told me I couldn't do it. You don't want to do it it's a pain in the ass watering 3 times a day.


These are all in cups also but there filled with lava rock in a home made flood and drain system



Just wood lined with plastic and fish tank pumps :wink:

This is when you start having fun :awetongue:

If I can do it anybody can. There ya go something to shoot for. Remember and nobody ever believes me till they try to stop. The growing is far far far more addicting then the smoking part. :awedance:
