500W mercury? is that mercury vapor? I'd get rid of those and get a High Pressure Sodium or Metal Halide. Mercury Vapor is not good to grow with. too much heat. just not the right kind of lamp.
He used whats called pre-fert soil. that is not recommended by many growers. If you stick to using it hold off on adding any other ferts.
but several people grow very well with pre-fert soil. just be careful.
mod: can you move this over to the indoor section? thanks guys.
