    Ok heres the deal i germinated 2 seeds back in early May. I put them in little pots in my garden like the first week of May. They have been outside all their life. They were discovered by my mother and well they wont be continued to be grow outside or in the front yard at least, lol. Im bringing them inside and i have 1 27w CFL, 2 24w CLFs, and 1 40wCFL(Soft White). Also i have a 250w HPS but no reflector, but i'll have a reflector around when the flowering stage comes. Also are they in the Veg. Stage or what do i need to do? BTW They're still in thier original pots from day 1. I guess what im asking is what do i need to do Next, and are my lights i listed good enough for now?

    the light spectrum put out by the hps will cause more stretching than you would if you just fire up all of those cfl's. definitely use the hps for flower. load up on the cfl's with the "bright white" spectrum (the ones that will lean towards the blue on the little diagram on the side)

    mine are about a month old now to dude. i dont really know if i got the right lighting yet but they are growing strong. i think i might have topped them a bit early which i kinda regret. can anyone tell me if my plants are going to be ok? here are some pics.

    no such thing as topping too soon. it will just make a plant that grows in a much more bushy shape. you can use LST to train it into somethin amazing. subcool tops his seedlings at the second true node

    them things are way to tall ,, there light starvedif its gonna be an indoor plant you should invest in LED combo lighting for veg and flower ...at that height you should have atleast three sets of ne limbs starting especially at 2 months old already....

    the hps will not cause it stretch loads and the added benefit of that added light would far outweigh the minor negative effect
