i was just wondering if it matters when i started using a light bulb???? my plants are about 12 inches standing straight up but not alot of leaves. maybe like 4-5 different levels of leaves. the stem is skinny and tall is there something wrong with my plant??????

Doesn't sound like anything is wrong from the fact that it sounds like it is stretching to get more light

i have 2 plants so far..... and my growing room is the loft in my house. which can as dark as night or can provide very sufficent light. but if the 60 watt aint gonna work then what should i use???? and what type be specific so i can go out and get it. and would a higher wattage boost the growth rate? and by how much? thanx

well for the first 4 to 5 weeks when im in veg i use 4 35watt 4foot tubes of flos i think they work best for veg because your seedlings are like babies and they wont stretch and they will grow up big and strong i have the light about 2 inches away.just add a couple of more cfls their the ones that are swirly flos you can pick them up at wall mart pretty cheap but when you switch to flowering i suggest getting a hps light if you want the best outa your plants heres where i picked up mine

http://www.htgsupply.com/

its prob the cheapest place around IMHO

U can get Compact Flourecent Lights at home depot or the such. I helped someone build a 2x2x4 box and we used 16 2' flourecent fixtures. I thought it was overkill but it was his box.

Well Building A Box Seems Just Allitle To Advanced For Me.... So I Should Get Cfl's For Flowering Time. When Should I Begin Flowering? My Two Plants Are Bout 11" And The Other One Is 12". Would It Be Wrong To Have Them In The Same Soil, And The Same Pot.

those compact flos sound good but if you want the best outa your plants i would def reccomend hps their a bit more expensive but def worth it.you can pick them up on e-bay or http://www.htgsupply.com/ and theres loads more sites that sell grow lights.you can also buy higher watt cfls on the internet that you wont find in any store

in the same pot?u shudve definitly had separate pots id say theyll be ok not sure though but u will definitly need to transplant to a big pot to give room to the roots to grow.
