help with cannabis plant
    #11354862 - 10/31/09 12:10 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

so i got a plant with pretty fat wide leafs towards the top and small lil leafs at the the bottom,its about 3 inchs from a 34watt flouresnt light, its 4 weeks old,i fetlized with a npk of 28-8-16,,i feel like its stalling because the lower leafs arent getting as big as the top leafs.  what do u think? is small leafs normal at first,Lights are on 24 hours a day,do they need dark time or no?

have not grown in a while but I always used a HPS light, florescent gives a less than optimal result.

Small leaves are normal, as the plant gets older its leaves will get bigger and the fingers will increase also. Lights do not need to be on 24 hours, IME it is a waste of electricity. They don't need a dark period while vegetating but they do benefit from having one. They do perfectly fine under an 18 hour photo period.

18/6 on/off during veg and 12/12 during bloom.... Industry standards.... I used to run 24/0 as well, but it really is a pointless waste of electricity, as well as your plants DO need that dark period, as there are certain processes that a plant can only conduct in complete darkness.... Also I think it's really good for the equipment, everything needs a chance to sort of cool down and relax for a little bit.... Helps all involved....

fluorescents grow just fine, I've got 5 underneath 5 23w(100w replacement) fluorescent bulbs and they are gorgeous. You just have to remember to use 4-6500k bulbs in veg and when you switch to flowering you put 2700k bulbs in there, and make sure you nutrients are correct.
