First time grower here, is my setup good enough? It's certainly nothing cutting edge, but I don't think it's too ghetto either.
I'm running a 150w HPS Sunsystem. The soil is Foxfarms Ocean Organic mix, I haven't used any nutes or fertilizers, might use Foxfarms Bloom for flowering. The light cycle has been kind of touch and go since I don't have a timer yet but I'm gonna get one soon. The longest dark period the plant has had has been 6 or so hours, we were trying to keep it at 19 on 5 off but my brother and I both work a lot. I plan to take the smaller plant out once it gets warmer and plant it outdoors so my main plant can have the entire light. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!

Sorry they images are posting sideqays, I'm on a mobile device and don't know how to fix that.
Anyways I noticed the main stem has weird purple lines, is this from a deficiency or just natural coloration?

What height should I switch to 12/12 if I want a decent yield?

Little bit of leaf cupping I think? Please tell me this is a humidity issue and not a nutrient lockout issue

Gonna lay down some basic info for you.
Heed this advice.
>Training properly
If you LST the plant (tying it down horizontally) you gotta put a counter string on the stem to keep it in place in the middle.
Otherwise it'll just grow to the other side of the container.

>Light cycles
Seriously, if you have a paying job, go buy a timer. I can't stress this enough.
Fluctuations with light cycles can cause a number of problems.
Get a cheap timer and put it on 20/4 or 18/6.

>Fertilizers
Get some and start feedings by using 1/2 or 1/4 of the recommended dose.

>Plant outdoors
This activity is only for autoflower strains.

>What height should I switch to 12/12 if I want a decent yield?

It's not about the height, it's about the number of nodes.
I'd top the plant to force a bush-type structure. Get maybe... 10 to +20 nodes
Then flip the 12/12.
Plants can double or triple their size when put to 12/12.

>Little bit of leaf cupping I think? Please tell me this is a humidity issue and not a nutrient lockout issue

Don't worry about it. I'd guess it's just dry air and intense light.
Raise humidity by spraying water on the canopy.

The plant look small wouldn't bother until 3x the mass maybe even more.
especially when you got only 1 and plenty of room under the light

I assume the small one is the cloned top, you need to get a separate light for that when you flower the big one, some weak cfl will do to keep it alive.
