    This is my first in many years, so comments are welcome. I've had 3 successful grows before, but since it's been so long and I'm using different potting medium and lighting, I'm totally open to suggestions.

    Last Sunday I started 5 seeds of each from Nirvana in paper towels, they cracked in two days and were planted in MG potting mix in 22 oz cups (I questioned whether they'd all come up, so temporary home). I used the MG mix because in the past I've been an over-fertilizer and want to avoid that for now, but was uncertain if that would be too much for the babies. They all came up within two more days, before my first light got here (400 W HPS), so they spent two days in the window until I got the light installed 36 hours ago, and they stretched a little in the window.

    I'll be repotting the Blue Mystic AF's into deep 12" pots next Sunday, which will be their permanent homes, and adding another 400 W HPS in about 2 weeks, repotting the White Widows at that time. Things are happening a lot faster than I had anticipated! The plan is to get the 5 pots under the lamp, then fit the remaining five cups between the tops of the pots until the other lamp arrives.

    My previous grows were under 2 - 250 W HPS lamps in a mixture of vermiculite, perlite, and peat moss (whatever proportions Mel Frank & Ed Rosenthal suggested), using good bag seed ($200/oz smoke 12 years ago). I notice that the heat of the 400 W lamps is going to be more of an issue, and that the quality of these seeds is much higher, so things are cranking along much faster than in the past.

    I've attached pictures of the 10 cups in a bin under the lamp and a close-up of one of each strain - both are starting the second set of leaves this morning. None of the plants have stretched since being under the lamp.

    That's what's happening now...

    Pictures are all, Blue Mystic, White Widow.

    Will be following this one for sure. I just popped some Northern Light Autos from Nirvana about 2 weeks ago. I germed them all in soil and once the seedlings got to a decent size I transplanted them to the pot they are going to finish in.

    Your plants look great too, bigger then mine and they are about a week ahead. I have mine in FFOF and am going to start nutes next week so hopefully I will see an explosion like you did.

    What light schedule are using with them? And do you plan on using the same schedule the whole way through?

    They're just starting to flower.

    As for the White Widows, they got testy and have some heat stress.
