    as it says on round 3,,all is well except a few light failures went and bought and added few more lights and have had few fail 2-3 weeks in the ballast no worries called company they are sending me new replacement ballast and a few spares lol ,,so all will be well,doing fair the plants were clones I took off last grow they were bit slow about rooting and switching back or seemed like it lol,they have been in my room since feb 10th so am 1 month and 10 days in roughly all plants have hit or exceeded the 2 foot mark pretty quick ,feeding them up now watching them turn a darker green as I increase the N had a few who were getting a lighter green so upped the feeding schedule ,I am feeding them with my organic mix every 3 days they get a dose ,greedy things eating a bit not even in flower lol,here are few pics of my progress

    Those are my 400 watt MH,I run them when I throw the ladies into flower,each one put's out around 38k lumens, during vegg I just run my 4 foot fluorescents getting ready to add a few more,,some folks do not like them ,I pay 11 bucks a pop for them at walmart and keeps them readily available and cheap,,I use descent bulbs full spectrum daylight bulbs same thing a photographer would use in photo's close to natural light ,and almost no heat,,or low heat,I also found from indoors or outdoors kola's are always biggest as they are on the top and receive most light,So I found a way to get light in on the sides of my ladies they seem to like it and will have the same consistent light till 4 foot,then overheads will be running with them,sorry for the long explanation lol,

    for 11$ each it's doing a great job, I'm using 4ft fluorescent bulbs too. Do you move your plants around or the lights are always lighting(?) the same side of the plants? Adding some on the other side might help even more in flowering for the buds at the bottom. I saw someone who put upside/down fluorescents on the buckets to add a little wattage in his setup.

    Okay all I have a question been at this a while outside before I have come in,,I have never used Cal -Mag just ordered my first Jugg any recommendations,,I generally go 1/4 strength on anything ,so was just curious,I usually use milk,but if you mix milk to strong you will burn the plant ,Not in the same way N will but it can kill all the young starting nodes as store bought milk has sugar in it grrrrr ,I believe that is what does it ,But None the less,My plants are doing well ,Just never tried cal mag so figured I would get some input from some people who have,I have been using milk for years fo calcium and other vitamins ,& I use epson salt for magnesium which has always worked well,
    Also have thought about adding 3-4 worms to each 5 gallon bucket just for shits and giggle ,anyone ever done that ,and if so do the worms survive or thrive ,was just curious
