Seed:2* Royal gorilla auto germinating in paper towel already cracked open and waiting for taproot

Pot:2 11 liter(3gal) fabric pots
Soil:only biobizz lightmix
Water:Minerali water ph 6,5ish

Planning:Going to take advantage of mediterranean sun on my balcony for 7h and brings Them daily indoor for 11 h of leds(110-150watt Total)

Doubt:How many cm to put the lights away from seedlings?

Probably 61cm(24”)-(30”)76cm at first since it doesn’t dim right?
No need to use the extra led bulbs for now,save those for bloom
Work your way closer slowly as she grows

My phone sucks and gets blurry when I zoom, is that a meanwell driver on it?
Leds have come a long way in the last 7-10 years pretty much all quantum board styles on the market are pretty good now a days

Edit I like they include the ppfd map but it’s hard to know if they took that from someone else, either way that’s a decent board
Can’t go wrong with meanwell drivers,even if the board died save the driver and use it in the next setup

I was worried flowering requires a lot more and this light would be not enough but It seems It should push It with help of 2-3 bulbs
You are so kind,thank you,got only 30 grams from First grow(basically I was at 0 knowdoledge about plants)

Hey at least you got smokable end product!
My first grows as a teen we’re all huge failures with dead plants, but I learned lots ahah.
I think your on the track to success now everyone on this forum is very helpful and friendly, if they suggest something they’re only trying to help.
You’ll be surprised what you can pull out of your 2X2ft tent with some of these peoples guidance.

As it stands right now with 110watts you’ll have 27.5 watts of light per sq ft in flower. You can definitely make that work and we will help you.
But if you can find another fixture and throw in another led house bulb in flower most people aim to have 30watts of light in flower

Sure,I can put 4 blurple bulbs for Total 48 Watts or 2 21 watt 3000k with Y adapter on that fixture you can see on the pic,but this Is later shit,I ll post an update when I progress or have some trouble with pH feeding(actually pH Is my concern as I don’t have ph Meter,I use pH papers to read pH with colours but not able to read halves like 6,5.I take a Guess with the colour)

Paper ones are okay same with aquarium ones with a test tube. I find they are great to find out your tap/rain/ R/O ph, mostly clean water.
Once you add coloured fertilizer or brown organic fertilizer neither are great because the tests are based off colour like your findings out.

I’m in the market for a decent ph metre so I can’t suggest a cheap or reliable option,but if you went that route make sure it can be recalibrated.
