Here are my 2 plants they are 5 weeks into flower, They look pinty to me, do they to you? I use a 430 watt hps about 8" above the plants, I water a cup every 2 days and i use just tap water. I went to go buy Triger bloom but 3 grow shops i went too don't carry it. What are some names of good nutrients for flower? I'm not sure what stran it is i got a couple of seeds off a buddy, these 2 plants started from clones. my goal, min is an ounce a plant i think thats not too bad i heard a plant should give about 4 ounces.

At this point in time, use any flowering nutrient.
How long did you veg them, under what kind of light?

You don't need a MH. Recent studies have shown than an HPS works just as good as MH in veg, MUCH better during flowering.
Plus, that 430 light you now have sounds like a full-spectrum bulb.

Actually, I think your plants look great. Only 5 weeks into flowering mean buds will end up phat and sticky.
You have to match bulb wattage to sq/ft of growspace. Rule of thumb for optimum performance is 50 watts HPS per sq/ft. If you buy any other lights I suggest HPS.
In the meantime, you can order Fox Farms products and all gro equip via mail order, from Grow shops. I'm surprized that you couldn't find any. But look in the phone book/internet for grow shops. Most of them have 1-800 #'s and will be happy to answer Q's; just don't mention what you're growing. Legally, they can't sell you anything if you say you're using it to grow pot. Say flowers or chili pepper's, most places that sell hydro & indoor gardening equip. will get the picture.
But Fox Farms isn't the only good nutrient, there are lots of them around. Grow shops are gold mines for info on good nute's. Fox Farms is made on the Left Coast (Humboldt County), shipping may make the price higher than local products of equal quality.
