Easter update- 14 days into flower:
Again- looking good. Added some kelp-based plant food this grow- Can't complain..Had a few rough clones take root so I'll be sliding a couple more in after i veg them a bit (if i can fit them somewhere, lol) Luckily we are starting to get our longgg days here in Alaska so I can basically solar anything veg until it's ready to hit the flower room (still on this single-room setup so being able to veg/flower rotation, even rough, is great).
Thank you guys for all of the encouraging feedback through my first couple of grows with these CFL lights. It's been great and have learned a ton- I actually appreciate this very much because now after having done a couple of CFL runs, moving to LED that much more appreciated and 'wow' factor. And I actually have some identified genes to throw under them now !!
edit: i took that picture RIGHT after the lights came on so temps a little low! (usually rop down to low 60s at night right now because it's still frozen outside)... Sits at about 75 during the day.. I would reverse the light cycle to better offset those temp variances and have them on at night but then i would have to do my gardening while i usually sleep.
Here's my 'rough' clone vegetation area it works (probably getting better light right there than my closet):
I still put them under a small LED at night because we aren't getting 24 hours of light quite yet..3 of those cuts are doing great.. Even was able to root one of the "tops" i cut.. with nothing but a small nub to work with.. took almost a month to finally root. Good times.. Going ot look back on this and say man, I've come a long way...Love being able to log it all here.
