or if you sorta handy with wiring.
e-conolite.com just have to make the ballast remote so the grow are doesn't get as hot. ;)

Yeah, you can run an HPS through a full grow. Perfect world is Florous or Metal Halide for veg. and High Pressure sodium for flower. but if only doing one grow area for seeds to flower without any propagation an HPS would be a good purchase. Good rule of thumb 50W (HID)/sq.ft. or 3,000 lumens (florous)/sq.ft. min. ;)

Good luck with your studies. can't wait to see your posts after your first semester. ;)

Nope I didn't author it. I don't have THAT much time on my hands.
can one of the mods go in and put the following in as the author. Thanks.

Strawdog (whoever that was) was the author.

Just don't want that being misinterpreted. Thanks guys. I just posted it and stickied it from my archives of saved useful information.

HI Lefty--

I bet you worked this out for youself but I just thought I'd say it anyway.. You probably shouldn't buy expensive female seeds your first time growing or at least until you know for sure that your growing environment is perfect (temp, lights, ventiltation, pots or hydro, nutrients, all the rest..)


Just recently I bought 10 Feminized Blueberry seeds because IMHO they are THE absolute coolest looking 'on the plant' bud there is. Anyways, I sprouted 8/8 and planted them with a bunch of others and turned out totally twisted and small and mutated.. (but they didn't die.. I'm going to keep one just to see how it turns out). I think this is because I didn't have my AC in yet and the temps were going from 69F in the morning to 102F in the afternoon.. I'm sure that under certain cirucumstances feminized seeds can work out really well.. but personally I wish that I had waited until my grow space was totally dialed in before I spent $200+ on 10 seeds... :D I smoked way too much weed... I ain't never smoked no **** like this before, man.. I think I better go drink some OJ or something..

imho i dont think feminised seeds are worth it... like everyone says... if things are not PERFECT in everyway.. then one still might hermie or go male. I wouldn't waste the money on those fancy seeds... I would rather buy 2 different strains. Or in a perfect world I would get a bunch of clones to start off with. I'm not sure how much they might cost in ur area... here they go for around $10 so 10 for $100 is the same as a good bunch of seeds.

EEK STOP DONT NO blueberry has a trait - it grows all twisted and weird. i bought blueberry fer the first time a long time ago from d.j. shorts and a buddy was growing them, they came out this way and he chopped them thinking they were hermies. i reordered and asked the breeder about the growth - dj said this was normal and started to put up strain descriptions mentioning this trait. this means you got a real thing friend.

do not chop them - grow them and they like lots of ferts.

No, I didn't chop any of them.. Geeze I'm glad I didn't.. Also, I'm really glad that you were able to identify this.. because if the blueberry is really blueberry it stands to reason that the rest of the seeds I bought are also real.. This is something I wasn't sure about because the seeds didn't come like I thought they would.. I had pictured them coming in sealed seed packets like tomatoes or whatever from the hardware store. This is good news!!
