I am New to growing but i did a little homework and i think i have a good start. I have been growing this plant for about 2 mouths or so, i really cant remember exact day. good soil(miracle grow ready mix) in a 2 1/2 gl pot . water out of the faucet i was told two let it set for like two days with a fish air hose in it and that the chlorine and stuff would evaporate. For nutrients i have been using super thrive and nova flora grow. i was told that it was all i needed. for light i have a t5 high output fluorescent that was running 24/0 but the leaves kept sagging so i was told to keep lowering the light until this stopped. so i set the light to the time they started sagging. they were on 19/5 until she started budding. i have since changed the light to 12/12. she is about 25" tall and really bushy. but the stems on the leaves are a little purple and they have a few funny spots but it is minimal. i thought that the purple stems were good, but i was reading on one of the other pages that it was a defect. also is it normal for the plant to begin to bud with the lights that high? Is it true that you have to have a H.I.D light to bud or will the t5 i have do the trick on these little bud? If you could play myth busters on any of the facts I have been told any help will be greatly appreciated.
