    Ok well hello everyone!

    Lights:
    2 40w 2700k
    4 40w 4100k
    4 26w 6500k
    2 23w 2700k
    so yeah its a bit mixed:neutral: but im ok with that.

    Nutes: im using regular ass bloom nutes with regular booster, but i put a tiny bit of molasses in the mix as well, i water every 3rd day about 500ml each plant

    Soil: The kush is in regular black earth with perlite 70/30
    The Aurora Indica is in miracle grow from seed and perlite 70/30


    like the title says one is aurora indica and one is some type of kush (a clone from a friend) the aurora is a seed i had non fem seed but got lucky lol :blsmoke:

    both plants were overwatered and root bound at the same time for an entire week before i figured out that is was overwater and root bound :cry::evil::cry: but then i transplanted them and sent them into flower two days later. now 13 days into flower this is what i have.

    Thinking of getting a 250w 2700k cfl. anyone got any input on them?

    this would be to add, not replace, so total 650w

    yep good idea, More light u have the more dense your buds will be, 250w cfls are good i have a blue one but deff get red :D

    Nice man! I have a Master Kush going right now myself. What kind of weight do you typically pull off of one plant under those cfls? I have been looking into some of the bigger fluoro setups for vegging. A 250 watt cfl can probably get pretty warm in there. What kind of ventilation do you have?

    Well, id like to tell you want i normally get with those cfls, but my last grow was only 6 lights so it was a little different, and also a lot more veg time on the last grow so all new to me this time.

    well the area is already a little cold so the extra heat may help, but i have 1 120mm pc fan at 3000rpm pulling air in, and another of the same fan pushing air our, i have my lights about 3cm from the tops and no heat issue so far.

    the only reason im getting the red is because its in flower now and when flower is done, ill buy a nice new blue one so will be a 650w vegg and flower, or i can put them all in for 900w lmao.... hmm starting to think i should try a 1000w cfl grow...

    I'm going for 1000w CFL dude! Ive heard its really important to get as much light to your ladies as possible! so I thought why the hell not?! Only using 500 for veg tho, 1000 to flower. SUBd. =D

    well im no artist but here is a really bad drawing
    [​IMG]

    so basically i just tied 2 power bars together put in plug socket things, then splitters in each one 4 40w on the outside 4 26w on in inside seems to work pretty well so far.

    Very nice... And The temps don't get too hot with all those watts? I think I might set up something like that for my next grow...

    i have noticed no problem in temps at all, but im guessing the 3000rpm fan helps a bit even if its just 120mm

    smells amazing, the AI is doing well but still no crystals, is that normal? do some plants get crystals way later in flowering?

    vegged the Kush (clone) for about 1 week and the aurora indica (seed) for about 3-4 weeks, both were over watered and root bound so there was a week of no growth lol

    Nice little setup and plant you have going! +REP !! The aurora indica caught my eye because she looks Identical to a plant I just harvest :)

    Check her out, hopefully her buds will swell up for you like mine did. Like I said this plant looked ver similar to your in early flowering which is cool because I haven't seen another plant similar to her yet! Anyway here she is, keep up the good work!

    well now!! that plant gives me hope! thanks for sharing, was the plant just whispy and not very much crystal? because my AI has almost no Trics (sp?) but is super whispy. Ill get some pick up a little later today, they are both doing well IMO and some leaves on the kush are going yellow but only from the bottom of the plant.
