This is my first grow and I decided to use a 4" pot (That’s the diameter, not sure if I labelled that correctly). I’m trying this to avoid transplanting too many times. I picked up some germination soil from my local garden store along with some potting mix. I went half and half on the two mixes in the pot, just wondering if this will be sufficient for the germination phase. I have a 3-gallon pot that I plan to transplant too after it switches to the vegetative state.
I’ve also heard varying opinions on whether to use lights or not. I have HPS and MH lights coming but I’ve been told they are too powerful for the little guy at the moment. I’m quite a bit over budget, are there any household lights that would offer any benefit?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: The lights are 600w that I bought
