A question from a fellow grower;
I just don’t have the cash to buy good light bulbs.
I have three plants in a 3’x2’ tent. I have three CFL bulbs that say they are 100w on the package but then on the bulb they say just 23 w. The first set of bulbs 5700 k so I just switched them to these 2700k ones. Much yellower light.
I planted 6 seeds originally. Three on Dec 23 2015, with no light but a table lamp, and then 3 more ON Jan 23,2016 in the tent with the CFL lights. Three plants have shown to be males. So I’m down to three plants and three bulbs. One plant I accidentally broke the main stem (long story) but it looks OK even though I lost the top half of the plant. The second on was the runt and is way smaller tham the other two. The third is good.
So it’s been over 90 days since I started these and they are juts now starting to show a small bud on the top of the main stems.
What should I be doing now? If I get adapters I can put all 6 bulbs in the tent.
Any info is appreciated. Pics attached.
