Well eventually the soil WILL run out of nutrients before your plants are finished so I would suggest you start planning on what your going to use. I personally use the General Hydroponics Flora series and use the lucas formula. Its cost efficient as well. How many watts each are the bulbs you are going to use?
The bulbs are the 9 watt LED for lamps and stuff and the one I got fir flowering is a 250 watt true red grow light but I got several of the soft white and warm white and couple grow type led bulbs that are the blurple and their 9 watt but 65 equivalent
What size area are you growing in?
3 are 5 gal buckets and 1 is a 3 gal in a spare room
Do you have it separated with anything? Like panda film or any kind of foil board? Those light bulbs aren’t gonna be anywhere near enough light for your plants. Maybe get by in veg but your node spacing will be spaced apart. A good light isn’t terrible to purchase or diy. For around 220.00 you can have a really nice light for seed to harvest!
No what u mean separated lol . I wish I had the money to drop on led panel I’d shitting in high cotton then bub lmao taking care of my family and my grand parents to puts it all in a tight pinch and can’t spare just in case hospital bills or something breaks down
Completely understandable brother!
I don’t know what u mean separated lol
Like having a small, confined grow space for better light reflection or are you just wide open in a bedroom?
No I’m gonna close it off some how or do this thing seen on YouTube make a frame for each plant surround it with mylar so I can create it’s own single tent for each plant with a few hook screws in ceiling and some cablee to frame then I suspend it and can move it up and down with frame and light on different cable with own wire so i can drop it closer so far these are the lights i got left I hit couple taking caps off and the red one is last one I’ll try to use in flower cause the heat I’ll have to watch it closely
And it’s a big room why I gotta make it smaller probably gonna get some of the insulation at Lowe’s for home but it has the reflective side and cut it tall so I make a new wall with it and seal it so no leaks
But I’m trying to hide back some here and there to at least get one if the Mars hydro 300w or 6 can’t remember it was 89 sumn on amazon
I’m gonna do a journal and label it cheap as grow and never know it make be huge it’s mainly from what i see and read not stunning them or stressing them at all for the first 4 weeks or so but first couple weeks will fuck em up n get a plant that’s 6 inches no growth really just few fans and a bud seen a lot that did it so I’ve already got my self in the point I’m not watering em til weight it’s back to what it was at dry dry or close to it n at least 2 days jn between
Im not so sure you should have that red heat lamp dude. Thats not anything you want over your plants
I know I’m just going keep it low and a good foot away just to add heat and lil red to em in flower but not close enough to burn em n if temp gets to high I’ll cut it
