            Morning mate....as usual, your girls are looking well nice

          No more pink light !

          Lots of heat to remove ! Need a bigger exhaust fan. But in the meantime, the air conditioner will keep it cool.

          This light was donated by a member of our great forum. Not sure if he wants the recognition so I will let him chime in if he cares to.

          I am extremely grateful to him! It brought me up a notch or 5 on my grow room. So stoked !

            I don't know, maybe this winter. 3 walls are plywood with a foil backing, its roofing sheeting very popular here, good R value. The back wall is sheetrock, the previous occupants couldn't park without hitting the car into the wall, hence the damn holes. Lol Instead of making a lengthy repair, I put a sheet of glass over the 4x3 foot lower portion of the wall. Held with metal ducting tape. I have a good seal in my room, light and air. But I don't want to permanently alter the wall because I rent.

            Funny I didnt set out to grow indoors. One thing led to another and I threw this room together one afternoon. Ha

            Californiakid Well you should feel proud of what you`ve achieved from scratch, mate. When you get better digs one day, just imagine what you will achieve. Until then, it`s going well mate. You`ve done really well with your limited situation and you should feel really pleased with what you have managed to achieve. Remember `You`re born alone, you die alone, you suffer alone ` an old Zen saying I believe. They should`ve added `you grow alone`

            Not having pink light screwing up pics will be nice I bet. Your plants are looking) good! Question. Any suggestions on what photoperiod seeds I should get , and when I should start them? I don't want a gap in my timing.
            I'm planning on growing them ( in veg) in the same room as my current autos are, so I think a strain that stays kinda short, and is indica dominant?

          I only recently started buying seeds. I have always planted bagseed. So I'm not well versed in strains. But I go by the breeder remarks, just use it as a general guide. What looks good to you?

          Both are great strains, known for potency . I'm growing white widow auto now.

            PaganRich , I'm thinking as far as what height I'm looking for in height for photoperiod Plants, I'm thinking that I would want them to be about the size that my Autos will be, so that they can all be more appropriate for my lights. Unfortunately, this is my first grow, and I'm growing autos, and they are only 3 weeks old, so I don't know what height they will be! But I'm guessing 2 feet 3 ft?

              Greenpassion It`s hard with different strains. Also, it depends on how you train them as well. A plant can double or treble post flip but go with the thought that it will increase say a further 100% post flip then you will need good growth to 20" to aim for 40" at harvest. That`s a good rule by thumb and Nebula put out an article that gives height flipping guidance.as well. I`m assuming you`re not flipping the photo`s whilst the auto`s are there still are you? Good chat this mate

              Well I don't currently have any photoperiod Plants yet. Sort of on another note, I guess I didn't tell LSt the ones that I do have up there very well. The leaves that are bigger are completely shadowing any little new parts that would grow up into their own colors. I tried to bend them over as much as I could but now the stalks are getting thick and it's more difficult. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. If I took those larger leaves that are shadowing these possible colas, I don't think that would be a good idea right?

            They seem to be enjoying their new light source. I've always run autos 24/0. But that was with a little led, I need a better timer for this ballast. My apollo 9, is rated for 15 amps but the manufacturer says not to operate ballasts with it. Something about when the light turns on the initial load spike exceeds what this timer can safely handle.

              Should I be running my lights 24-0? I have 2 pots under a 300w and 4 pots under another 300 watts LED. I have them on 18 6. Is that not enough?

              Growing is akin to philosophy, its studying and adjusting what you have learned into your own personalized approach.

              Now having said that, some say 24, some say 20, some say 18/6. All are correct for the individual claiming that is what works best for them. My old led light used very little electricity so I left in on all the time for multiple reasons. I couldn't really saturate my plants with light. My new light is seriously much larger 600w, so the plants could likely use a few hours to rest. I could use the break on my electric bill. And I'm learning my new system, so to say.
              Now you are growing autos, they are bred to grow and mature fast with long days. So 20/4 & 24/0 will still produce flowers even 18/6. So you know you many aspects of your grow to consider, I will cut mine to 20/4 when I get a timer. It will be off during mid day to alleviate some heat. Now photos, thats a different scenario.

              Long answer, I hope it helped.

            I've cut a few leaves here and ther over the past week to expose buds to unobstructed light.

            I may get some wire ready to hold some arms out, to keep things open.
            Really trying to focus on getting this setup tuned in. Only a couple of weeks until the challenge then a little seedling time, then I better have it dialed in. Which reminds me...

              Californiakid, can I take the leaves that are shading where new colas could grow? They are not buds yet. They're just beginning to be branches in between where the stem and the leaf is. Can I take the big leaves that are shading that off? I have read the tutorial but I haven't been able to find where someone takes the big leaves off before they're beginning to Bud or even grow new colas. I appreciate this help guys

              Do you see how these plants look like they've been trained a little? That's from a leaf shading the branch, so the branch stretched itself to the light.
              Then I cut a leaf exposing it to more light. So I watch each plant and train/or not train accordingly (to my style). So manipulate these like you would any of the plants you are accustomed to. 👍

              Californiakid, tomorrow I will take those larger leaves off so they will be out of the way. I'll pull them out of the room and take photos in natural light so you can see what I've got going on better.

              Yeah I'm still working on my first journal starting on my second grow. It's in the completed section but Nebula recommended I keep the story going 😉. I had a bag seef triathlon going on 😆.

              I'm about to harvest my last bag seed and I'll complete it with a write up about it all fairly soon. Check her out she's fading fast and will be hanging in a few days. https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...g-seeds/page12
