Ok.. this is my first time getting this far in growing
heres what my procedure is everyday

1. wake up check the plants water the dry ones.
2. befor school set the plants outside in the sunlight * in an un-noticeable place*
3.they sit in the sun from maby... umm 9:00 am to 7:30 pm
4. at night i bring them in and put them under a HPS bulb
5.they sit under the Hps bulb till the next morning at 9:00
and repete

6. whenever the ends of the leaves are brown and dead i trim them
7.im useing Naturize Bio-charged potting soil


is there anything else i can do to make my plants grow faster or am i doing anything wrong?

thank you for your help

Leave them under the HPS 24 hrs. or 18 hours on and 6 hours off. bringing them inside and out is not good. Its putting a lot of stress on the plant. IMO

Good rule to watering. Stick your finger in the top of the soil about 2" deep if thats dry its a good time to water. It is always better to underwater than overwater. Easier to fix. ;)

Sounds like they are stretching. How far away is the light?

Also they probably need a fan on em. We need to know your grow set-up. Before we can help.

I would drop the HPS to about 1'. Then have the fan blowing a gentle but good breeze across the plants.

Can you post a pic of the plants?

keep the hps and scratch the outdoors. when they're budding your not gonna wanna move them or change thier light. I'm sure thier fine.

Don't trim the dead/sick leaves. they will drop off. even sick leaves tak in light and co2. And it sound like ur plants are reaching for the light. move the light closer and put a steady fan on them. the breeze will act like wind in its natural environment and it will strengthen the stems.

If it's in a fish aquarium light it's not an HPS, sounds like a flouro, hence the stretching?

Does it have a ballast? Wierd, I've never heard of them, are they cheap? Look at the bulb, it should tell you what wattage it is.
