    Hi all first time "grower" just a couple of ?'s. The two pics are of my plant its going on five days old and is almost the height of a lighter. should i move the light closer or what as you can see it looks a little tall i think. Its only under a 100 watt bulb and its actually a lizard sun glo light. I know i need a better light so dont tell me that, im actually going to go buy more lights for it soon have any cheap sug i could get at say a lowes or something like that. Also if you guys have any general tips that u think could help thatd be great thanks

    Dude swith the light that you have over it and use the cfl. I would scrap it though just run a fan on it and put the cfl within a2 inches or so. The fam will help strengthen the stem for flowering later.

    This plant is still not a lost cause. With the proper lighting and a fan you still can have it up and runnin good.

    I had the same problem snowcap. I would get a couple CFL's.... some 6500ks and maybe even a single warm CFL(i think they are 2700k?) to give a broader spectrum and keep them 1-3 inches above it. That set-up is really busting out foliage for me.... just some advise.

    I am very glad you took my advice, now just run a fan on her t strengthen the stems to support buds and you should be good to go....

    fans already on her...? tho ive been leaving it on basically all the time but its position is so that its only a pretty light shaking. should i leave it like this or move it so its more of a breeze on it but cut the time its on down...

    sorry fellas cameras been broken but just started the bud cycle im 9 days in now she looks pretty good (for first grow under clfs) shes about 2 feet tall and theres about 20 different bud sights on it they all look pretty good should i keep moving the lights around on all of them every couple hours or should i focus on just a few.

    alright so heres some pics of the little nugs the top is ready to be picked soon im pretty sure its actually pretty crystally but its hard to tell from these shitty pics but alot of the other nugs are a little behind it with maybe one red hair so should i just let the top nug go all red so the other ones mature more or can i just pick the top nug off or would that be to much stress? also any tips on the best way to dry-cure?
