Hey man, lot's of luck with your grow man. Hey, that unit your using looks like a commercial unit. What is it? Looks almost like a Botanicare aeroponic unit. Am I right?

Yeah it's an aero 6.
I thought so. Are you using distilled water? What type of pump? Nutes?

It looks like a perfect size for a 400 W light. Or maybe two 250's.

I'm using an 8 bulb tek-light (440 watts-flourescents) i've got a strong fan blowing on the plants so i've got the light about an inch from the tops of them. I'm using hollands secret nutes. It's an 85 gph pump. I haven't had any trouble with the sprayers clogging yet! I'm using tap water.

Hey, sounds good to me. Keep an eye on those heads. Are you going to flower with the flo's?

yeah i'm gonna put hps simulated bulbs in my flo fixture.
If you're going to let those plants get to 20 inches or so, you'll need two of those 250 HPS. I've used flo's to flower one time and I was disappointed in the results. I got about half what I was expecting and the buds were all underdeveloped looking. Potency was down as well. Clones from that crop were grown under HPS for the entire grow and they did twice as well.

I have a 1000watt hps i could use. Do you think i would be safe to use that and just exhaust it out into the room outside my g.r? I don't know if that would give off a heat signature or something. How far above tops should i put it? My friend moved off to college and gave me all his stuff so i just sortof got thrown into all this:), but i'm not complaining.

Hey, the 1K light would drastically improve your crop, but safety is a primary concern. You're correct in being concerned about the heat at plant level. Put your light over a non-reflecting, non-flammable surface at about 3 feet high. Take the temperature of the area directly beneath it. This temperature should not exceed 85 degrees F. Raise or lower the light until you reach this temperature consistently. This is the height you should never go beneath.

No one can give you an exact distance because of the variances in reflectors and lights.

Good luck man and let us know what height works out for you. We can always use more first hand information.

pranic..more "wives-tales", myths, and mis-leading rumors. Fat, thick leathery leaves are indicitive of ancestory, more than anything else. Though I would assume environmental conditions do play some part in their existance, it bears little if any relevance on potency.

My hygrometer says 34% rh i thought the cause of fat leaves was high humidity. All the leaves are kinda thick. How can i fix this or is it just a charecteristic of this strain. I think thick might actually affect potoncy due to less resin production because leaves aren't thinking they need to produce as much to avoid drying out. But i don't have expeirience like yall. Any suggestions? Oh they're starting to smell a little if you get right on them!
