Help? Most flower now


#21

Imma start flipin them tonite…does it have to be 100% dark no light to flower them. I wanted to pull back curtain for breeze and air but worried outside night light


#22

Yes, no light leaks, or they might revert to vegetative growth, our even turn to hermaphrodites. If you flip now, you will have a very small harvest. They won’t produce flowers until they’re mature enough to do so, then you’re looking at another couple months or so, at least, before harvest.

I think you should adjust your schedule, and find a way to make your grow space light proof. Veg them for another power bill cycle, and I bet having them lighted during off peak hours will drop your bill significantly. Power and water are cheaper than the dispensary, or the dealer. You’re in this far, I just don’t want to see you disappoint yourself :v:

Teust me i thought of it. But my bill is $2300 and the month cycle aint done. I got a email from light co. Sayin aug estimated $2300. Im findin oit hawii rapes with light. Cant afford it now


#24

All that said, some folks do 12/12 from seed, or even 12/12 from clones and run a sea of green setup. Just another option.


#25

Holy guacamole homey! That’s ridiculous.


#26

Yea no shit!!! 2300 1 month that’s hi way robbery


#27

Can you put them outside during the day


#28

Yea ima put them outside 7am-7pm get 12hrs sun then bring them inside 12hrs dark


#29

Brother if you are going to put them outside for the 12 why cant you put them outside until it gets dark then bring them in at least for a couple more weeks. You will be happy you did and the sun is free. For the other 4 hrs they don’t have to be in direct light


#30

Like i can put all 13 like under house lights? To make up 6hrs?


#31

Yes you can get cfl bulbs 23w 6500k or led light bulbs and remove the plastic difuser. You can get a 4 ft shop light and put in cheap grow bulbs. They won’t do much but increase your light period for cheaper


#32

What ever you do try not to run any lights when your electric is so expensive


#33

Yea im thinkin just 12/12 everything see what happens get my bill down and squared off and see what i can and cant do


#34

Or my friend is like either give the 3 older plants 12/12 and keep babies under something like kitchen light for like 6hrs for another month. Im not to sure


#35

You can grow some nice plants off of 23w cfl 6500k light bulbs so your frieND is not giving you bad advise. So can I ask how expensive is your monthly bill withour the grow lights? Would adding say 6 cfl drive your bill up that hi?


#36

I been askin around to see what other ppl pay. My friend said norm is $700. He pays $1500 but has 4 roomates. My 1st month i had no lights and bill was $390. I should have waited or did more info…i had 2 300w led lights on for like 2weeks and got a warning message saying bill for aug was estimated $2300 but didn’t even get july bill. I stopped everything and waitin to see july then aug bill and see what i can and cant do
