First grow! (pics!!)
    #1173188 - 12/27/02 07:47 AM (18 years, 9 months ago)

The germinated seeds were planted on the 19th and 20th of november, 2002.

I am growing them under an incandescent "plant light" bulb that cost me $2. It's working well, I don't think I'll need to buy a fluo or HPS lamp. The lady at the store told me that if the bulb was the right color, the plants would be able to use the light rays.

They're in 16/8 cycle. I don't know when I should flower them.

Advice / comments appreciated!

Wow, They grew kinda fast.

Have you been growing those under a plant light since they sprouted? They look like they're really reaching for that light.

If you refuse to get better light, atleast get a few more of those plant lights and maybe put like two shining down from the top and a few on the sides so it's adequately covered.

they are already too large for that light. if that light is all you are going to use you should flower them now. the plants may double or triple in height during flowering so you may want to crop them low first. the pots are also too small, but that tiny light is probably going to be the limiting factor.

you would easily get 10 to 20 times the harvest you are going to get if you got a real light. if using incandescents like that worked worth anything, everyone would be doing it.

neuro, yeah, I was surprised at how fast they grew too.

They do look like they're reaching for the light, because they're bending towards it. However, when I turn off the light at night time, they unbend.

I was growing them under the window for the first two weeks or so, but now I'm just leaving them there under the light.

I think I will indeed get some more of those lights. I'll probably set them up somewhere else than right next to my bed, too. It's time for me to put my electricity knowledge to use!  :grin:  :crazy:

Bilge, thanks for the advice. I will probably get a fluo bulb, and a couple more plant lights...

I'm not looking for an amazing harvest, I just want a little pot to smoke. I already have lots, but I want to know how good it feels to smoke something I grew with my own bare hands!

I'll repot them tomorrow...

right on! my first grow was a couple plants by a window. i didn't even know what was happening when they began to bud and then i realized "hey, those are buds!" eventually i stepped up to a larger system and grew so much that i couldn't smoke it all and started making money. i don't do that any more, but it's all on the fun road of learning.

if you have the time/money/space to continue improving your hobby you will find that metal halide and/or high pressure sodium lights will allow you to grow more pot of higher quality in less space and less time. have fun!

DOOD! If you ever plan on having BUDS, and not stringy pieces of leaf with a few red hairs, I'd suggest getting a fucking HPS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!NOW NOW NOW!
Flower them NOW! The flowering cycle will still add about 2/3 of the highth of post flowering, and they WILL need better light....Even if you bought 4-5 more of those bulbs you have, it still won't be enough to get tight buds...Oh well, it's your first grow, good luck!
P.S. Any Idea of the strain?
Looks like a big sativa to me!

thats pretty good for one of those lights...if they only cost 2 dollars...maybe you should go back and buy 5 more.  :laugh:

whats the wattage on those bulbs?

Felix, they are 60w lamps.

I'll get a fluo, I don't have any money to spend on a HPS. I don't want a top-of-the-line setup, just a couple of plants, for fun!

sweet dude!

are those the bulbs that have that bluish film around the bulb?  flouros are ok....but if you do get flouros, get a bunch of smallor short ones instead of those huge long ones.

that's pretty cool, good luck :laugh:

Yep, that's what I'm using... seems to be working alright for vegetative growth, it would probably suck for flowering though.

you might already know...but they have those flouros with a cool white flavor and a more reddish flavor.... i would get the reddish oness :laugh:  three short red flouros in a teepee design :laugh:

Well, I'm out to buy some better lamps!

I'll put the whole setup in my basement. I'll buy one or two other plant light bulbs, and a $30 plant fluo tube. I put them in 12/12 yesterday, but I think sunlight got in my room, from behind my curtains. However in my basement it's totally dark, and I'll use a timer, too. I'll find some bigger pots, too.

I'll post some pictures as soon as I'm done!

My plants look really skinny compared to the other pictures I see on the net... what am I doing wrong?

I just topped the two other ones I hadn't topped. I hope they'll become more bushy.

However, is there any other part of the plant I can cut to get it to produce more leaves and stems?

If I were you, I 'd get the plants closer to the tube.. to move the fluo, just put a box or something under the pots to get them to a higher level... the long stem must be due to the small bulb... and there must be mostly sativa... but good job!!! these should come out fine!

How will you cover up the smell when they bud? I would use a scrog grow if you have limited light and space.

whoever said put the plants closer the the tube is a smart guy...you can put them right up next to the tube.

you still NEED those other lights right on the plant....you're doing everything right, but it's all about light. check out homedepot for some 70watt HPS security lights....they're not that expensive....but i don't know you're budget. www.insidesun.com has some CHEAP ass lights.

while at home depot, check out some MYLAR film to reflect as much of all that light as possible. your plants will make love to you for getting them mylar....especially with such small amounts of light.

it looks like they're trying hard.

Your plants looked stretched cause of the light you had originally used. More intense light with wavelengths in the Blue Spectrum and some in the red would have caused your plant not to stretch and stay more small and bushy.

As for lighting: Your fluoros should be "plant light fluoros" which means they'll shine a violet/blue wavelength mostly. This is best for the money. HPS and sunlight obviously has a full spectrum with lots of Red in addition to violets and blues. Red is also important for plant growth as Chlorophyll uses some and accessory anabolistic pigments called carotenoids (B-Carotene for example) use it too to produce energy.

My advice: set up your 60w plant light in addition to your fluoros so it gets some reds too, also setup some tin foil to reflect that wasted light from the fluoro that's just shining up into the ceiling and in other directions down on to the
plant.

BTW, have you fertilized it?

Don't use foil. It can reflect hot spots. Use white paint. Of course with just fluorescents that probably won't be a problem.

he'd have to get cardboard, thick cardboard actually, and paint it. Just use foil the fluoros won't get too hot.

With his stated budget all i've suggest is about the best he can do.

Heat from a fluoro is minimal. It does little to no damage.

A box of what and where?

Psylo33 or someone suggest putting a box under the pot in which the weed is growing from to move it closer to the fluoro. That's, of course, not out of his budget - i would assume.

If you're suggesting boxing in the light or whatever (and painting it on top fo that), then that's just ridiculous. The aluminum foil will be just fine on the fluoro they don't get that hot. And the foil will reflect much better.

usually the smaller lights have the ballast enclosed in a small box with the light.
seeking out small wattage hps and mh lights can be silly tho.  70 watts can be had for 35-60 bucks or so, and don't do much (one plant or two), but the spectrum and the intensity make a huge diff.  i have seen 100/150 watt hps for 80 bucks at lowe's, in a plain cardboard box with no labeling, including ballast.  that's much better.  then it's a hop skip and a jump to 250's and 400's....shop for used, the 400's are common and cheap (think security and street lights), and the bulbs can be had for 20 bucks or so. 
all in all, fluoro's are not so great,  veggie growth is not so vigorous, and flowering seems to take quite a bit longer and produce wispy, light airy "buds".
if you insist on sticking with the fluoros, i would hope that you read some stuff about  lumens and intensity.  more than 3 inches from the actual fluoro bulb and the intensity is not enough to grow anything.  it helps to have the plants all at an even height so that you can keep the tops of the plants within 2-3 inches of the bulb.  they will grow right into the bulb with no harmful effects except a little drying out (if you are not attentive enough).
the boxes and books and bricks you use to raise the plants to the light can be shifted every few days to lower them and adjust for the growth.

i have to say, you really have to have time on your hands and a very limited budget to get a decent amount of herb from fluoros and bag seed, but it can be done.    it makes a huge diff when you spend a smidgeon on a light, and the genetics cinch the deal.

good luck, hope this helps some. :grin:

Hey! It's been a while.

Two of the plants, the biggest one and the smallest one, turned out to be males. I killed them.

The other one is a female. It's doing nicely, I think. I can't wait for my second grow. I'll get better lamps and set this up in a better place.

New pictures!

Thanks!

Do they look good? They seem like they have too much pistils.

They took a while to appear, though. They've only been there for two weeks or so.

When should I harvest?

what's wrong with too many psitils, the more psitils the more buds, although that increases the chances of producing seeds from the ovaries at the end of the psistils..

I must say that's pretty good looking for just that fluoro, the plant is all stretched and stuff and not many leaves and all that, but the buds you will get look pretty good.

If i remember correctly, that was not a feasible option for Meph, he had a low budget and most likely coudln't do a lot ot the room he was in.

I started with a clone as you can see on the first pic.

True. Next time, I'll use a HPS.

The seeds had very good genetics. They came from very potent blueberry buds.

How big should I expect them to get?

i'm not too sure on yeild cause i don't think i've seen all the bud sites. don't expect much though cause you got mad streching going on (huge node spacing) and just not a hella lot of bud sites from what i see. also bud sites further from lights will be less dense so keep the lights close. and take clones sometime so you don't have to deal with supporting potentially male plants for a month and also to cut growth time down by quite a few weeks (for the next time around)

Thanks for the advice! Next grow will be better  :smirk:

This is not too bad, for something that started out as an experiment!

The pistils are starting to turn red.

I might have to harvest soon? They've been in flowering for a while.

I don't have the necessary equipment to check the resin glands.

Should I wait until all of the pistils are red, or what?

I just finished harvesting. It doesn't look too bad :wink:

It's drying right now. I expect 3-4 grams of bud, and a bunch of leaves  :smirk:.

Do female fan leaves make good smoking material? Do they provide any effect at all?

I took pictures, I'll post them when I have the time.

Now, it's time to get some new seeds, a new lamp, and I'm starting over!  :grin:

Not bad for a first grow and no HPS or MH. Its quite a small yield, but I think thats because the strain is sativa, and the plants don't have much to them. Like 8ball said, the nodes are spaced very far apart, which I believe means they wanted the light really bad. I haven't seen plants or yields like this, can someone tell me whats up?

You saw my pics in the previous pages of this thread, and I couldnt harvest any decent bud you know cause I was told to get rid of dem plants. Hehe I harvested all soon-to-be-budz and little leaves with pollen, and I remember smoking 5 grams with a friend, we got quite high :laugh: But as eighball said the best results will be to cook dem.

Here are the pictures I took yesterday:






I left the bud leaves, because they were crystally. Anyways, if I had cut them off, there would?ve been very little left to smoke  :blush: :grin:!

I found 4 seeds in the buds. More will probably come as they dry. I already put them in moist cotton balls :smile:

I?ll try to get better seeds for next time, though.

I?ll get a HPS, too. I?ll try building a grow closet with a fan and all. It would sound like an interesting project  :smile:

How many plants would I be able to fit in, let?s say, a 3 foot by 3 foot box? How many watts would I need on my lamp?

3 x 3 feet = 9 square feet
You want at least 50 watts per square foot. Personally I would get a 400W Agro (combines HPS and MH in 1 bulb) = 44 W/sq. ft
A 600 watt bulb would be even better if you want to pay for that much electricity

first the calyxes or however they're spelled form, those are the white 'hairs' and they are around for the reminder of flowering. during flowering is when the buds will swell and all the weight packs on. it appear you harvested at least a month early. i hope you took clones at least.

From someone that knows what they are talking about you harvested way to early .for a box that is 3'/3' you could use a 250 hps that should do the trick . and you could probly fit 5 or 6 plants in there with out getting to crowded , you should start of with more plant because you have to acount for males DAMN MALES .

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the pistils were all dry and red. They were even starting to fall off.

Bah, mabye I did harvest too early. It doesn't matter, I'll grow some more  :grin:!

hey that's great man.  make sure to tell us about the quality of the smoke  :laugh:
are you going to be patient and cure that small amount or just dry them?

I just created a similar setup as Meph, after reading all this I realized he never posted to tell us how it smoked. Then it occured to me, he probably got arrested........second thoughts.....

Yes, that's my point. I was sifting through old posts looking for info. When I found this and realized it was almost exactly what I was doing. But he never posted again, leads me to believe he got arrested.
