1st Time Grower // Strain: White Rhino // Starting from seeds

A discussion with my close friend advised that these pots were too big to start with and recommended just buying some dixie cups cut holes and plant in there // Xfered seedlings from 2.72L pots into dixie cups
Finally got something a little better to organize my pre-veg stage with as well as a rack for storing nutes, etc…
Xfered seedlings back into 2.72L pots as I felt they were getting to big for the cups…
3 Days after the xfer, IMHO they seem to be doing very well IMHO. You can see #1 in the back row, middle… I think that one is growing the fastest of all of them (some more pics below)
Here is a time lapse I put together…unfortunately not as good as I wanted as I ran into the tripod left and right while I was misting/watering/etc…but for what it's worth here its:
Today was pay day…so the plan was to go and buy some fertilizer and move these girls into the tent under an 18/6 veg stage; Well… big speed bump in that road… I still don't have any nutes!!!
Initially I was on the AN.com (Advanced Nutrients) bandwagon based on my close friends advice as well as my own research even (their marketing is clever). Even with a discount though; just to buy what I wanted (not necessarily needed) for the veg state (Sensi Grow A/B; Voodoo Juice; B-52) it was going to be over $100! After going through home brewer's thread:Dyna-Gro vs Advanced Nutrients Connoisseur (AK47 Grow); I clearly saw a huge difference in the two… and I'm looking to save money here of course. So I've decided based on some questioning in his thread to go with Dyna-Gro Grow/Bloom/Mag-Pro/Pro-Tekt.
These seedlings have been growing under that 1 Sun Blaster since 8/11/11. I was planning on moving them into the tent last night — but still not having any nutes figured I'd move them in the tent tonight after purchasing some nutes today at the local hydro shop(s). Called around my local shops… (had already gone to one and wasn't impressed my first time around). Google'd the local shops and called around today, no one is carrying Dyna-Gro Grow/Bloom in stock… some have the Pro-Tekt (which I could have gotten but if I don't have to drive then I won't…) but I was looking to purchase all 4 today… so that I wouldn't need anything more — in terms of fertilizer — for this first season here. So I just ordered from Dyna-Gro.com… should be here next week & all under a hundred all shipped (got 32oz/1L/0.25g).
While I'm not in any sorta rush, I want to make sure I do this right if I am to achieve my goals; I am concerned needless to say… that girls will be under the Sun Blaster for a little while longer than initially planned… I think it should be fine though.
