    Thanks mate how far away should I have the 250wAtt cfl? Is it pointless having the 400watt hps and cfl on the same time?? Only for first 3 weeks then 1200watt hps throughout as there auto there gonna flower on there own ive had the light on for 40 hours now I was thinking tonight I should change to 18/6 do
    You think that's a good idea or keep 24/7 for first week I just think they need time to rest and grow

    24/7 for the first 2 weeks

    a 250w cfl at about 4 inches above the top most leaf is good

    or higher if it smolders

    just the cfl for now

    good luck
