Ok, guys I got a pic but its not that clear, incase if you guys wondering I'm growing early bud in soil and white widow in hydro. I got 2 65w red specturm on the early bud, and one 125 full specturm on the white widow, It's been about a month and this damn plants didn't grow much. I can't wait for my new light system to arrive. I thought it cost me cheaper to go with fluors, but I ended up spending more money on it and didn't get good results. sorry guys if the pics aren't clear, I took it with my web cam. LOL... One more question 400watt MH puts out about 56000 lumens, by hanging it about 2-4 ft away from the plant how much lumens u guys think the plant gets? thanks

I can tell you this - you have the wrong spectrum of light on those. If you use cfl`s, start out with cool-white, for vegging.

cool white, 6500k? what you suggest goldie? is it better to use fluors or mh then hps? The full specturm 125w bulb I got is about $70, so I guess i was better off to start with a hps system. Thanks

Cool white, yes. Use that until your HPS comes in. Then use them ALL once flowering starts, and you will get lots of buds. :)

I`d say 2-4 weeks, depending on how long you can wait. ;)

Goldie, do you think I'm ok with a 400watt system? I am not thinking of growing more than 4-8 trees. Also please answer post #6 for me. Thanks

Use the red, the full, and the HPS for flowering. They will do GREAT!

You will need more light for 8 trees - you may be able to do 4.

400w is the minumum I would recomend. If you can afford it, I would suggest buying another 1000w for flowering. Use MH for veg, and HPS for flower. But it's not that important. I don't even own a MH. HPS will work for all if you need to. It's that Floro that's giving you the problem though. I think. It's hard to tell with those pics though. What kind of food you using?

I think 400 watts would be plenty for a starter, this can really give you great buds.

Using a 1000 wats is great but it's also dangerous, a lot of heat and growing in a small space can be dangerous. I recommend to test the first grow out and then use more wattage if you are comfortable with growing marijuana.
