Weed lighting?
    #843878 - 08/26/02 10:39 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

So if I have one weed plant about 3 weeks into flowering, at only 1.5 feet high ( i dont have much room). I have grown it under floros for veg. and the first stages of flowering. Now i wanted decent buds so i thought about putting it under the sun for about 3 hours each day to supplement the floros.
So i have two options: i can leave it INSIDE by the window, which has a window tint on it, where it will get about two hours of direct sun and the temp will be in the 70s. or i can put it on my porch where it will get many more lumens of light but the only thing is that it is like 100F every day here. i put it on the porch outside for two days and the stigmas are turning brown, i guess due to them drying out. so i guess i am asking- is it worth it every day to move it to the window to get the two hours of direct ( although tint is there) sunlight? you'd laugh if i told you how many watts i have of floros, but hey they have done pretty well so far.
oh, by the way i think the weed is a mexican strain. sorry so long!

ah, one other thing... i have two other ladies in the veg. stage outside in the heat. although they are growing slow, obviously, they havent been burnt by the sun. so i thought it feasible to flower out there too at this point.

if they have done well so far under flouros i would keep the under them with a 12/12 lighting schedule.. from what i understand, you could easily stress your female plant moving it in an out with lights on and off and make her become a hermie(male and female sex organs)...i have never fallen withness to this personlly but have read it many places....also you need to follow the same lighting schedule.. not 12 hrs on here and 12 off there, a timer on 12/12 is recommended...i hope i explained something... you can flower the other ladies by placing a dark blanket or sheet over them for sometime each day to mimic the changing light cycle.(shorter days)or amybe in a shaded area...how do you know they are ladies if they havent began to fruit yet?

Ive got three plants - 3 weeks into flowering , the one is tall nearly 2 m and the others smaller - 1m and 05 m
At first they growed with sunlight, then with undirect sunlight ( in a really lighted room ) and at night I used to turn fluros on
Now Ive left them im my room and they recieve light from 6.00 - 8.00 ( 14 hours,thats alot

strang,
yes i have a timer to keep a 12/12 schedule. i merely move the one plant from the lights to the porch area for a few hours. I can tell the others are ladies too because of the strong preflowers on the one and the other is a clone of the flowering female.
toad,
just move your plants to a 12/12 schedule and they should begin to flower in about a week or two.
i think i am going to let the flowering plant inside but getting some afternoon sun in the window. its at three weeks but has decent sized buds already and i think the sunlight will only enhance this much more than my tiny little floros.

hey just a question but what are you using as a timer for your plants an are you goin organic or chem. I plan on my first grow in a couple months indoor bagseed from good mids so iam pretty excited about the nearly free green i will have in the end. hey bro if you want your plant to flower better, get a high pressure sodium bulb an leave that on 12/12 you will yield alot more per gram that way. from what i understand about the hps is that if you have a 400 watt hps then you will yield 400 grams if grown right. peace out!!

to get the best buds, you need to either grow outside or use HID lighting (metal halide or high pressure sodium lights).

He is right.

You either need HID lighting, or growing outdoors during the right time.

Floros will not cut it, if you want anything close to a decent harvest.

Oh, and that 400watt/400gram thing is bogus. The amount of light doesn't determine the amount of buds you will get. You just need to know how much lighting is needed for your setup, overgrow.com has a lumen/square feet ratio or something that helps. More light is usually better, but too much can damage your plants so becareful, and when using HPS you should have a fan, and mist the plants daily.

shroomgod,

hey i have a cheap timer i bought at target i think for my light cycle. i am growing strictly organic.
other guys,
thanks i know that a better light setup yeilds more but i cant afford any of that now and dont have room for it. (you should see my ultrastealth setup as it is). so my lady thats flowering now will just have to accept a few hours of good sun each day and take the floros for the rest of the day. she seems to be doing pretty well for the third week. i have cloned her and am growing the clone outside now as it is still in the veg. stage. It is just SO damn hot here still that it will be a while till they really take off outside. ( 100F every day) I am only growing a small stash stricktly for myself and my girl. Wish me luck for some good "kind."

In reply to:

Not really, I've used 5 32 watt flourescent tubes for 3 plants using screen of green, vegetating at 24/7 lighting and flowering using 12/12... All female produced great colas and good quality weed, minimal space, and all that crap...

If you have a large volume of space your trying to light, use hid lights, but if your doing screen of green or have a small space to grow in, use flouros, they dont get hot enough to worry about, and you can put them less than an inch to the plant and buds without any reprocussions.

halide is for vegetative state broheim.....you can almost rest the flouros on the plants to increse lumen penetration since they produce so little heat...

so i have been supplementing my floros with about 2.5 hours of filtered ( window tint) sunlight. the buds have noticably increased in size. i am hoping to get at least 1/8 to 1/4 ounce of pure sinsemilla from my first girl in about 3 more weeks. hopefully more from my others later.
