    i thought lumens was based on sq footage not the number of plants even tho i do realize their is a limit. I have seen that b4 ill take another look at it Thanks

    IMO as far as nutes go I myself would go with either advanced nutrients or general hydroponics. Im using AN and so far Ive seen some awesome results but havent had anything to compare it to. Try one of those both are very good for MJ.

    well those are the two that i was looking at what types of AN are you using?, ill have to look at my local shops and see what all they have if anything (fingers crossed) and if not then i guess the net. Any recommended sites other than htg?

    This is true my friend. But for the amount of plants you have you have to take in to consideration of the fan leaves.....They will block alot of light.

    This will lead to the bottom nodes not recieveing enough light and this will cut your yield down by atleast half.

    Flouros do not penatrate throught the plants leaves. This is why it is suggested that you use HPS/MH lighting systems.

    I have one plant and have over 8,000 lumes and I will not get the load I want because my lighting is not sufficiant for the flowering growth.

    We will see, have a look at my grom log.......

    first off thank you for the insight i have untill now not taken in that aspect, i bring this to you as a possible solution, if i double that width of the grow area and double the lights (the lights are free), and should i do lst seeing as how its supposed to promote growth on the sides or just do some trimming, that should be better untill i can get proper lighting from htg, opinion?

    Hey Homemadegravity, I just invested in the 2 part Advanced Nutrients System myself and I had a quick question for you. Do you use the exact recommended amounts from the nutrient calculator on their site or do you tone it down a bit? And if you do tone it down what is your nutrient schedule? I used to use GH 3 part and 33% of the recommended was plenty, 100% would burn the living crap out of my girls. AN however seems to be tailor made for MJ so i just wanna be sure before I nuke my girls on accident. Thanks

    Hey wsup Chronic007 good to have you aboard at MP. To answer you question about the nutes. I dont use the nute calculator at all. I didnt even know they had one till recently. This is also my first time using AN sensi 2 part nutes. I started feeding my babies very early with this sensi grow. I just wanted to see to if I could use it without messin up anything, and to see if it made a big difference. I always use my nutes very slowly and work my way up no matter what nutes they are. Such as the sensi grow for a lite feeding they recomend 1.8ml/L, I was using a 2L bottle and in my grow diary it says I used 2ml of a+b so 4 total ml for the whole 2L bottle. So always always start off small and work your way up. Your plant will tell you when it needs more. I increase my nutes every week little by little till Im at the full recommended dose. I can tell you Ive never had plants that have grown this fast before. Check out my grow journal you will see. Just remember MJ can and will burn very easy so take your time figure things out before you just start adding it to your plants. It maybe is time consuming but its better to increase the frequency of your feeding rather than the strength of your foods.
    Also with that website I gave you for the AN products. I always talk that guy down in prices. He sells his stuff on ebay and if there is something on ebay cheaper just ask him and he will give it to you for the lower price. Plus every time I order from him he always sends me a sample pack of something. Very nice guy very resourceful and has very fast shipping. Good luck to you both. Please feel free to ask any questions you mite have.

    your plants look good BK, The nutes i use iz Fox Farm's Grow Big, tiger bloom and big bloom you can get all 3 for like $39bucks, i havent used it yet cause my plants not ready they only 1week. Ive seen good results from it and went with that. As far as light, if you LST(Low Stress Training) them you would be able to get the light get to part that would be covered up by the fan leaves, but the leaves will still get in the way to a certin extent. jus tie them back aswell never cut them off. good luck on ya grow
