Reason: ADDED LIGHTING INFO
As an update to this previously written start, the first of my blue spectrum bulbs (65 true-watt) has arrived and been installed next to a red one of the same wattage. I'll be adding the 45 as soon as it arrives. The little lady is looking lovely and I can't wait to see her progress after I get home (I'll be away from tomorrow evening until next Tuesday).
Looks good man, I'm subbed.

Was this a freebie from attitude?
I'm also using some cfl's to grow.
Will check in on your progress, good luck man!

Day 12 today since the seed first popped. Charging my camera right now but I'll post pics in an hour or two.
Okay. As promised, here are some update pics. The second pic shows the stem splitting that I asked about in a different thread. I was going to leave the plant along for 5 days so I went ahead and transplanted it so that I wouldn't have to worry about it drying up in that time. When I got home and checked it out, I noticed that the stem had split like this. I searched for reasons on RIU and Google'ed the fuck out of it to no avail but here's my theory.
I think that by transplanting it early, the taproot/root system was able to go hog wild with growing room which lead to a growth spurt of sorts in the stem, thus resulting in the split you see here.
Anyways, I'm picking up some cloning/rooting hormone gel tomorrow and I am going to give the split area a light treatment to encourage roots to develop there. I know that given enough time, the plant would do this on it's own but I'm just going to try and give it a jump start.
In the other pics you will see my Trinidad Scorpion seedlings after having been transplanted into their final pot.
In a small pot, there is a bag seed that I picked up from a friend when I as on vacation. I'm going to let it grow indoors for now but I'll probably transplant it to a safe place outdoors in a month or so. If it turns out female, great, but if it turns out male, I don't care that I don't know the genetics, I will be taking some pollen to pollinate one or two buds on my Strawberry Blue female so that I have some seeds for next time. THAT SAID! As an alternative, I may take a clone from the SB and use the colloidal silver technique to produce some pollen and make myself some feminized seeds. We'll see.
So here you go. Day 12 since popping up. Last pics were from the evening of day 1. I'm stoked and will continue to be so as long as things go smoothly. Keep it green folks. Peace.
