    :confused:I currently have a cfl setup and i was wondering how to get the biggest amount of buds from a crop. On rollitup I have been seeing pics of buds that are pretty huge using only cfls. Is there anything I can do to get the biggest buds?:confused:

    that totally didnt answer the question, idk man id say just maintain properly, grow more than one plant, and just take good care of them, all ive been doing is flower ferts and lights, trimming when i need to and my buds look great to me, its dark in there now or id put up pics, love your plants and pay attention to them and just read, ive heard mollasses improves taste and triches, and flush for the last two weeks b4 harvest

    BIRTH CONTROL PILLS
    A solution of one pill to one gallon of water has been reported to cause increased growth speed in tomato weed plants. It is possible this will help herb weed plants too. One treatment administered before flowering and one administered a few weeks before harvesting might help the weed plant mature faster.
    One grower told a story of the same type of weed plants, one administered the estrogen grew to 20 feet, while the other was 7 feet. This may be purely anecdotal, but it may work. Try it and report back to us on results.

    Here are some pics of my buds.....

    6-26w soft white cfl - flower (using DNF Bloom nutrient)
    2-26w daylight cfl -- veg (using DNF Veg nutrient)

    These buds are about 10 inches long and ready in a few days....

    So make sure you got lots of light and good nutrient...

    haha WHAT?! ive never heard anything about girls blood or bc pills... dunno if ill be trying either anytime soon.
    The best advice i can give you man is even lighting all around the plant esp with a cfl grow.
    Also have a fan oscillating 24/7 to strengthen the stems.

    Duece.

    the more cfl's you have the bigger the yield....let me rephrase that the more lumens you have the better i use the 60 watt 800 lumens a piece type....they come in a 4 pack for like 10 bucks...I have four now and have to more cfl lights coming they are 105 watt 6200 lumens a piece...

    use more light than you think you need. keep the lights really close to the plants. Burn the buds very very very slightly about four weeks into flowering... they'll fatten up like mad.

    You would grow man boobs if you took enough of them, but then you wouldn't need a girlfriend anymore :) :)
    I'm actually curious if this works, please update if anyone tries it

    The absolute most important thing for good CFL buds is proximity. The CFL's MUST BE VERY CLOSE!! So close that you have to move them everyday to avoid the plant touching. After I started flowering, I had to raise the lights TWICE a day the plant was growing so fast. If you dont have to rasie the light above your plant everyday your light is not close enough, or your plant is growing really slow.

    try using coco coir, but don't forget its a hydroponic medium so you need hydro nutes and the ph of everything should be ~5.8
