WAIT! so I'm pretty disappointed bc I tried to hook up my HPS last night for flower and it wouldn't come on! I changed bulbs still nothing!...



so idk what is wrong with it...im gonna take apart the ballast and make sure everything is connected good later but as of now I hooked back up my MH and switched the time to 12/12.



I know MH isn't the best thing to use for flower but will it work good or Is it highly recommended that I figure out my HPS pronto...



Does anyone know why this leaf is starting to look like this? Its on my biggest one in the corner.



does the size of the plants on the left have to do with the genetics you think or only bc its a 400w with 4 plants? I'm thinking prolly

Vostok had a good point about checking all the wires so please be polite. If you want the best pot you can grow with what you have, HPS is better than MH to flower. IF that is all ya got, that is all ya got.

Oh good. Phewy Sorry about the males. It is going around. I know one guy that planted 11 seeds and got 11 males TWICE.... That makes me want to smoke more pot...
I am having way too many males too. What is it... global warming? kidding.

I belong to several pro weed sites, and as yet have seen NO member anywhere with a
'RED' line under their avatar, as most are booted or appropriately banned for good,
you gotta have friends in high places ..indeed.

I'm sure if you find my posts offensive then you may Pm me, or even hit the 'ignore' button some place in your profile?

On both occasions above, my post are not directed at your 'multi question post', but at you own safety, worn or frayed wiring and or leaking capacitors can turn any HID light into a death trap.
Large capacitors are used in the ballast, to assist in the cooling of the electrical gear in the housing, that why most ballasts have vents on them, a sudden drop and its easy to damage a capacitor ..and see the thick oil oozzing out ..

see this moment to upgrade the light to a new digital ballast, that take both HPS and MH some you can even turn up or down

I shop Herbies, but you are correct bagseed ain the best to start from...perhaps later when you may wanna cross your current strain with something ...er! unusual

should you be in north america you may consider clones, but just remember they are as old as their mom, and don't have that vitality that one gets to know?
