First i need to know ideal temps and humidity levels, other than that I should be ok for a week or so

humidity should be medium during the growing... not too low and not too high. too much over 50% and things start to mold, and bacterias like to take over. ideal temps are going to be almost the same as your regular comfortable indoor house temp... around 75 degrees. cannabis is a very tough plant (most strains)... they will grow good all the way up into the mid to upper eighties if you provide them with everything they need. I've actually grown good bud all the way up to about 95 degrees during the light period, all the way down to 60 in the night period...during the whole lifecycle of the plant. keep in mind that cannabis likes lots of air circulation too while you're thinking about your temps and humidity.

you will have to excuse my use of celcius but you can convert it at numerous places

the ideal growing environment is between 24 and 28 degrees celcius, with a 5-10 degree drop in the dark period any more fluctuation and you will notice the stems will get purple veins

as for humidity you should be aiming for around 65 %- 70% all the way through veg and the first two weeks of flower, this is the range that cannabis thrives best at , but so do bugs so it should be lowered  if you have bug problems in your area or grow room itself
  once you get into about week 3 of flower you want  to drop your humidty to around 50% -60%  if you have automated controll over it let it fluctuate from 40% to 60% hope that helps and let me know if there is anythign else :smile:

"and you will notice the stems will get purple veins"

And this is bad why? Im on my third grow and like lackofbreath said up there pot is very resiliant. I havent noticed any detrimental effects of a stem getting a red vein. Just dont let it get below 65 or above 85 and your pot will be fine.

As far as humidity goes if you have a small grow space like me the wet soil is good enough to keep the humidity up. if not keep some wet vermiculite in a dish to raise humidity just like the mushroom guys do it. again its not that big a deal. Pot is extremely adaptable. I would be more worried aobut high humidity than low. Peace

In some strains it is natural but in most cases it is bad because it is a sign of coldshock , or under fertilisation I belive it is magnesium or potasium ( going off a stoner memory ) both beign things you should aim not to get

cannabis actually grows better at higher humidties as previously stated the only issue you get is later in flower when you should drop the humidity there are many many cheap ways of doing this , most peopel find having thier res lid off in the grow room does it and then close it to get the drop

ok thanks, I'm going with about 300w of CFLs for this attempt, if all goes well it's off to HPS, I know the correct distance for floros is 2-3 inches away, what I need to know is a good fert mix for a soil grow, it's bag seed, but I've thrown about $150 at the box so far. any suggestions

alll my plants including cacti like the foxfarm organics, made with sea things too for heathy sturdy plant cell walls. Its heavy so needs cocco or peat moss to fluff it up a bit.

I highly recommend putting worm castings in your soil mix

Prep seeds in 24hours in a water dunk then into peat pucks. wait for germination.
Soil mix.
I don't know exact ratios but this works for me.
1 bag "Pro sunshine mix"
1 small bag perlite,
1 small bag vermiculite
1 small bag worm castings

Mix well add water until consistently smooth, like you would mix brn rice and verm. for shrooms.

Next, fill pots (24-8"pots holds all of this mix with no waste"

After seeds have sprouted, place peat pucks into the filled pots, and water...
From here, you don't have to feed plants until at least 2months old and they turn a tinge yellow and stems go pinkish purple from Nitrogen loss...That is your plants telling you they're hungry.
This is when I hit them with a dose of neem oil, to kill anything before it starts, and to help strengthen imune systems early on.

Now MY personal fave are the bigfoot veg and bud solutions wich come with an over all catalyst to help plants digest nutes.
I feed once with a light solution during veg, hit them again with a
harder batch of nutes right before budding, then cut off nitrogen and begin with a light dose of Bigfoot Bloom and catalyst again halfway through flowering when buds start to swell, I give a heavier dose, then when they look like they are finnishing, I begin to flush with spring water until hairs start dying and crystals turn golden...
Then I cut off all watering untill the pots are BONE dry...This increases THC dramatically in final days as well as helps cut drying time immensley...
Hope any of this info helps...

I personally would use this soilless mix:

-2 parts peat moss
-1 part vermiculite
-1 part perlite

I got this mix from advanced nutrients website a while back...it works great! Nice loose mix for strong roots and good water/fertilizer absorbtion. I would suggest going HPS all the way if not MH/HPS, screw the flouros unless it is just for the first week, they are no good unless you have tons of them. Get a cheap HPS off of ebay and do yourself a favor. Check out my first grow attempt here...things turned out pretty good. It was a small scale grow cab.
