Is it possible to grow good weed with a cfl light? I have a small closet space I wanna grow in and I can't afford a serious light but I don't want like shit fluffy stringy leaf weed that tastes and smells like stem and leaf.

I wanna just one big light and hopefully buy smaller lights to stack around it as the plant gets bigger. Thinking of starting with 250w and adding 80w lights all around.

Yeah, it's just a pain in the ass because you have to keep your lights super close to the canopy and during the stretch you have to adjust them every few days. I put power strips back to back and plug in 3 lights each with those little plug adapters and put a reflector(disposable baking pan) on top of the whole thing and it makes a decent light for really cheap. I think LED has come down in cost enough that it beats it though.

So have I but the lack of sample studies annoys me. I might do a batch with and without cfls and see what the difference is in grams per watt. I suspect it will be far more than the regular shitty yields per watt with cfls.
Not op btw

If you add more light you'll get more bud are you worried about spectrums or something? How many watts of cfl are you adding

Nah just curious. Cfls generally get very low yield per watt but I suspect this doesn't apply as much with a combination of other types of lights since cfls allow you to place them in the place most beneficial to the plant at the expense of parts of the plant further than the cfl

So, I got some Girl Scout Cookies Extreme...whatever that means...I assume it means it is at least mostly like GSC....anywho, this fucking strain is just a piece of fucking shit so far.

Basically, it grows slow as fuck compared to other strains, and it is more sensitive than your last clingy relationship. I mean, fuck....I swear I look at it wrong and it goes to shit. Tried to flower it, but the recent high temps have made it fucking just curl up. I may end up losing it. Sort of debating if I should throw it back into veg. Only been in flower for a week and a half. Probably the only way to save it to be honest.

But, fuck me...I keep getting janky genetics on some strains...always new strains...and seem to come across some similar stories. Pisses me off. I like the old guard strains, but new shit is nice too. Right now I feel like only the older strains are worth it. Jack Herrer, White Widow, etc.

Damn market forces making people release janky seeds!

fuck your "locked in" strains that are so fucking inbred that they aren't worth putting in dirt. go drop $250 on a pack of "real dj short blueberry" f9001 seeds before you doubt me, you'll be lucky to get two spouts from 10 seeds and neither of them will be keepers.
i chuck pollen, every fucking harvest i got new strains and they all grow like monsters and deliver dankest you ever smoked and danker than that. if you want predictability grow clones. i can get a blueberry cut from a pal that was a seed in 2005, it kicks ass thats why he kept it so long. why should i gamble on seedpack blueberry if i can grow awesome blueberry guaranteed from clone?

p.s jorge cervates is a joke, dude is way behind the curve, don't your advice from some high times charlatan. him and a lot of the other big names are all bullshit artists, good salesmen, but not growers of any skill.

p.p.s. the whole breeder snobbery shit is a joke. anyone can make good pot seeds. if mommy was dank and daddy was from a good seedpack strain (TGA or whatever) you got solid gold seeds. ppl say GG4 is the best shit ever and it was made by accident so how much brains could the breeders have? did anyone ever make the fastest airplane in the world by accident?

So I received my package of cactiseeds.
20 of each. San Pedro, bolovian torch, peruvian torch and peyote.
I've read a lot beforehand and I am still not too confident to be honest.

Anyone here with some experience with growing any of these from seed?

I am NOT looking for ways to grow them as fast as possible at all, I Just want to cultivate these sacred beings as good as I could and threat them with the respect they Reserve so I can enjoy the experience when the years passed and the time has come.

I was thinking about trying coconutsoil but im feeling Like they Just gonna rot this way

I grown cactus from seed
The seeds of various species where really small so i planted them in a vermiculite mix with a generous top layer of sand to prevent them from being flushed away. use a mister and or dipping the bottom of the pot.

Sand/coco/perlite or pumice mix. Don't go too hard on the send. Don't let them rot out but keep them moist. Don't put any nutrients in because from seed it will be very sensitive but you can topfeed later on.

That light fixture needs to be way closer to the plant, either lower that or raise the plant.

You also need more light in general. With fluorescent lamps you might get 0.25 grams per watt if you are lucky. You only have two tubes out of four. Try to get even more. For the vegetative state you'll want as much "blue" color temperature you can. You should find tubes that are branded "daylight", 6500K or so. For flowering you'll need "red" light, like 2700k "warm light" or lower, maybe 3 tubes "red" and 1 "blue".

Growing Cookies Kush by Barney's Farm, figured I'd do a log this time.

Using just over 50L of canna terra soil, mars hydro 600w LED (~240w actual draw) and foxfarm trio nutrients.

Until recently I'd been growing 2 small plants in a smaller tent, but this time I decided I prefer one big plant. Goal is to use large pot size and longer veg time to get some huge yields.

Pic posted is 25 days from seed. Will be topping and using LST. Any advice / questions welcomed.

So, I was doing an outdoor grow log earlier here, and at around two weeks, my plants got all eaten up by something.

Anyways, One plant was totally eaten, and the other was left with just a main stalk and a bit of leaf. I went to replant, and noticed something...

Little leaves on a node. Very tiny. I was curious though, and left the plant be.

The leaves are growing. This plant may be recovering to some extent from a brutal attack.

I say we follow this and see where it goes. Probably not anywhere, but who knows.

Autos. Trying a transplant will cause too much of a setback in growth.

Plucked the guy anyway today. Growth was much slower than the new seed that I planted, so logic dictates I make room for the fast grower.

I do have seeds on order which hopefully will be here within two weeks so I can get another auto in the ground (or maybe even two...may have found space for another one...) so I can get a late harvest.

UPDATE - So, a seed I thought was a dud totally ended up sprouting like a week and a half after being planted. Guess it needed the time. Sadly, something clipped the end of the first true leaves and it probably has about 1 leaf worth in total area now. So, I guess I am sort of back where I started.

Got stuck with growing some plants that came out recked and now I have to fix it
Worse off I was given them in a week of nothing but 101-115 weather in area with mostly full sun. I have to transplant them in ground soon to avoid the roots burning
but It seems they are infested with mites and I suspect some type of nutrient deficently? (Maybe Potassium?) What's the best course to get these in the ground asap without much shock and death? Also best soil mix for these fucks in ground?

Damn the plants looked pretty weak and scraggely. You can make them recover if you treat em real good.

From this image it looks like they have a serious collection of defficiencies and they also need to be repotted into something much bigger or into the ground.

From looking at the leaves it looks like they have a nitro toxicity. I would say flush them for a few days, straight water and then if you can get something that is similar to a supervit, vitimin boost give them a bit of that and some potasium. But only give them a little bit as it looks like they've been fully loaded on something.

Just posting a pic of these bagseed plants.
They were ~7in. when this was taken and now they are almost a foot tall.
150 watt unbranded grow light with 36 watt (300 eq) 5,000K light.
Extra-fluffy soil and breathable pots.
80* temps constant, but humidity is a bit high (80).
One plant is visibly darker than the other, both smell nice; like tomato with a bit of skunk.
Nice thicc main stem, using diatomaceous earth for that and guard against gnat-sty bugs.
Leaves feel a bit abrasive, started curling under so reducing watering for a bit.
7-point leaves with thick fingers.
Nodes about .5in to 1in apart, starting to branch.
Lighter colored one is shorter, but has better roots and started branching earlier.
Might be about time to top and clone.

Top and clone. Looking nice. You can get some gems out of bagseed. In the very least you tend to get good, serviceable, weed.
