I have alot of general questions about growing in a small space with flourescent light. My plant has been growing for about 5 weeks now, and it looks very healthy with strong stems and large green leaves, But i have no idea if it is or not. I also dont know what to look for when it starts to bud, how to increase the chances of a good bud, or weather or not i should do anything special to the plant to ensure it buds. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

floros arnt that good for growing period the best advice i can give you is keep the light real close to the plant but not touching in like two weeks change the lighting hours to 18/6 hopefully you have them on 24 hours right now umm line your space with aluminum foil even the floors and in like a month and a half when the plant looks nice and full change the hours to 12/12 and you should have bud

what kind of floros are you using the long ones or the screw ins and how many do you have

Try to change over to a HPS lamp when you go to 12/12. That alone will greatly increase bud size and yield.

if you are just now switching to 12/12, it should be around 8 weeks till harvest. after a couple weeks you should be able to tell if its a female.

co2 of some sort will increase bud size considerably. 1gal jug with 1/2gal water, 1cup sugar and a pack of yeast. poke a small hole in the lid and shake frequently while covering the hole with your thumb. co2 will rush out when you move your thumb off the hole. mix up a couple or three if you can. wont hurt a thing, just make your buds fat. :)

Just so I'm clear on this Weeddog.... (i've never used the CO2 for anything)

You mix all that up, shake it up, and youpour the liquid into the soil? r do you just let it gas out into the ambient air?

I'm curious about this. Anything new to help my grow will be a great benefit.

i heard that if you keep a plant in darkness for three straight days it will force it to bud, is that true?

changing your light cycle to 12/12 will force you plant to bud. ive left dark a couple days before harvest and cant tell any difference. thats probably just me tho.
