    right im a first time grower and ive heard from so many people the best smoke to grow, thats easy, is low ryders. ive done my research and i think this is the best way to go, ive got a good space to put around 10 plants in but i need to know what is one of the easier strains to grow?? and if a 600w HPS will cover a space of around 3ftx6ftx6ft high?? i havent got a clue!! any help would be great so please share with me any advice you have! cheers

    I usually just use bloom nutrients. 10 plants? Sounds like you need the 1000 watt light.

    Depends on the strain if you will need grow nutes or not. Some require more N than others. And if you dont have it your plant will sufer therefor you will not get the best results. I have grown 6 diff auto strains now and my current Spyder is a N whore and in week 4 of flower im still adding some veg nutes to my flower nutes. Dont just listen to one pperson on this blog. Get lots of opinions before you get set in your ways. PM me if you have any questions.

    lowryder 2 is a easy strain to get a good start to growing fairly easy fast finish can get more experience in less time fairly stable genetics almost clone like if you get lucky you get a mutant/monster

    600 is more then sufficient ive grown with less just might take longer to get there for a beginner 400 watt hps is plenty baby step then jump right in when your comfortable 1000w puts off massive amounts of heat 2 400w cool tubes can be placed a bit closer to your grow and covers about the same area

    barneys farm sweet tooth auto is a really easy higher yielding grow smoke depends on how well you treat them and proper harvest and cure is the key they take off like a rocket i have one in a 1.5 gal pot topped the second set of nodes and it is prolly 12 inches tall at 3 weeks with very little effort

    well i retract the statement i agree you dont need cal/mag in your nutes if you dont mind your plants praying or having rust spots on them then its all good i didnt use it for a few of my grows then a buddy said those plants are praying for magnesium and i looked into it with a little research they can decide on there own but at the same time its like a condom kinda sucks when you need one and dont have it
