Hello to all faithful readers, particularly the Bros Grunt and other highly ranked members
who have so graciously given of their time to critique my home grow situation. New setup includes a 1000w Hortilux and 3 small flourescent fixtures...As you can see in the pics , the skunk variety is germinated and now in soil, waiting patiently for the little bad girls to rise up. I have the 1000w bulb about 4 feet above and the temp seems good in the room. using a combo of pearlite , organic soil, and plastic cups to start them. must say as soon as i got the Hortilux, the littel sticks just burst forth with fat nodes and growth. much thanks to all who made suggestions vis a vis light and room requirrements. Also painted whole room flat white and am a bit more organised than before, also using an air purifier to keep air clean and blow CO2 to the little baby girls.

any suggestions???

herbie love bud:)

If it were me i would put your babies under the flourescent's then switch to your Hortilux in a few weeks. You don't wanna burn your little one's. ;)

Very exciting evening at the Herb house...We have sprouts starting to come up in 5 of the 15 cups, so we are extatic, and also are noticing how happy and lively the clones are doing now that we have the HOT new Hortilux light...Below are some recent shots of the little girls and clones getting their daily dose of Vitamin D(22 hours per day..) YAY
Thanks and shout out to Grunt Bros. and everyone else!!

Herbie luv bud:p

Everything is looking great. Your taller plants should do just fine under the flourescent lights until you put them all under your Hortilux light. ;)

Use a teaspoon of epson salt it will make up for the deficiancy which causes the leaves to go yellow. Also do you keep an eye on your ph levels?

I see your babies and young ladies are growing up fast. Glad to see your letting your short bus plant live. I have seen some nice short bus plants turn out some nice bud so maybe she has something to give. ;) Everything looks great man keep it up.

hey your looking good keep it up. i think you should take that floro out and use them just for veg. you dont need that in the flowering room. use all the floro's you have for veg and just the 1000 for flower. its better that why your plants will get short nodes you looking for.plus the hps color promotes more stem and bud growth then any thing. then when you put them into flower they will just get so much bigger it's like using the flruo's to set a base for the hps to work with. plus you need more air. go and buy your self a big a$$ box fan you get from the dollar store to put in there bud mold like's high temps and high hum
plus this will give you a stronger stem for that 1000 to work with.

I transplanted most of the skunk babies, and the medical babies into littel white bags, and ran out of soil, wo theres a few left to transplant..Anyone, (sin, brothers, etc..) know how long it will take for the mothers to be fully budded, and ready for harvest?? at the moment im on foxfarm bloom, every 3 days, and 12 -13 hours light, the babies are sequesteres in just flueros, as per sin's suggestion...wondering if i should be doing anything else to encourage bud growth, also started a little yeast machine as per your recipe...looking pretty green...

The ladies are looking great man. Flowering can take anywhere from 8 to 9 weeks maybe longer depending on the strain or strains you are growing. Keep up the great work. ;)

Hi guys...
been on a 12 hour clock with my 1000w hortilux for 3 weeks, and I'm seeing what appear to be the start of buds, but I've never flowered before, so i could use some advice...Is there anything else i shoud be doing besides watering adn Fox Farms every 3 to 4 days...Also added a bit of epsom salt to last watering because leaves were looking a bit yellow...Baby skunk plants are now a month old and doing well , on strictly fluros, 4 long bulbs and 3 cfls...
Ive been doing the co2 home made generator with yeast and sugar, and two fans , one for the big girls, and one for the babies...

Here's some pics..looking foreward to getting some feedback...
