    Like i said before i post up new pictures, brought them in last night and put them in the room that i made for them. Just to give you a little heads up about the room. Its a little place that I use for vegging/sprouting during the winter time, to get plant healthy, as it looks its 7 23w cfl rated at 100watts daylight 6500k, I also have drops to add in that same place for 4 13w cfl bulbs rated at 60watt 2700k that i can use for flowering. I currently use the place for as of this moment for vegging and sprouting, haven't done flowering at the moment. Dimensions are 3ft wide x 2ft deep x 7ft height, its a nice little hidden spot, the lighting is setup under a 12/12 timer. The room is built for less than $150. As you can tell i don't have 2 spots, so i have to rotate like a mofo.

    okie dokie, well momma is in her 5th week of flowering, last weekend i decided to get my other new one and check it out. Come to find out its a GIRL, woohoo nother beautiful momma plant coming your way. As always i have no idea what the pheno type it is cause its from my bag o seed collection that i have. So last weekend i snapped a few pics of her. maybe you can help. Anywho first two picas are of the new little girl, the second pic has a bug on which didn't last very long cause a yellow jacket needed lunch. I counted the weeks she's been vegging it came to 8 , so i immediately put her in the 12/12 closet i have with the other momma plant i'm finishing thats her in the last picture. I'll get better pics of the while they are in the closet tonight to see if they are any problems, i know we had a very strong wind, and the day before i went to get the new little one we got and inch of rain, so the little one is very well watered by mother nature.

    comments and concerns are always welcome

    Looks mighty fine to me. I've been book pressing the best looking fan leaf. Wax paper, lay the leaf out. I'm gonna frame a couple.

    Those have the beautiful sativa leaves.

    Howdy Budman! I'm a fellow Texan, also just getting back into growing. Good luck on growing outdoors. My husband and I hid 15 plants on family property near Lake Tawakoni a few years back. It took the game warden about 3 weeks to find them on 260+ acres of private property. I hope your gorilla grow is more successful.

    Hey Fellow Texan, thanks for stopping by. I did gorilla for a very long time, i pulled back cause i couldn't remember where i put my plants at. Course back then i didn't have gps or any crap like that. So i start doing small grows in around the house, before i got married you can say i had a number of plants around so to speak, but i had to quit unfortunately cause my future wife had court problems and i didn't want her to get in more trouble. Bout 2 yrs ago she had medical problems, we discovered she had MS, at that time i told her what i use to do, she looked at me and asked if cannabis would help her with her condition so we started doing a little research and come to find out it does help. So when she found that out she asked to start up again but want me to keep it small, i told her i could do that no worries. So with a limited budget this is what i came up with. I usually rotate 2 to 3 plants sometimes i push 4, usually start them inside when they get there first leaves move them to the god given sun for a time and them move them again into the flowering room which i set up, and here is the product that i'm growing. Meanwhile the cannabis i have been growing has been helping her MS.

    so speaking of, here is a little update from the flowering room, all drooling must have towels in hand please.....just kidding

    Welp the first 4 pics are of the momma plant she's going into her 5th week of flowering, now keep in mind, i have not added any nutes to the grow, all i have done is water it, keep lights on it, and the fan on it...every once in a while i'll take my spray bottle and spray with airrated water. I wanted my major factor in the soils i make.

    last pic is the new little one i brought in after being outside for a while, its a little wind battered, and got stuck in a thunderstorm so it might be a little over watered, but i moved it into the flowering room after i found out its a girl, she doesn't look to bad and has liked the room.

    could you let me know what kind of growlight bulbs those are and where to get those single spiral bulbs what are they called/ do you start the seed in small paper cup with drainage hole then transplant into large pot or do you just plant the seed in wet dirt in the large pot?

    Hey Kevin, thanks for stopping by.

    The answer to your question is those are standard everyday cfl bulbs, you can find them at your local grocery store, also Home Depot, Lowes etc. What i looked for when i went looking for them was it kelvin light that it emites, that's the color of light that it provides. One set that i have is for the veg side that the blue spectrum, 6500k sunlight 100watt cfl, actually wattage is ranged between 23-26watt. The other i use is in the red spectrum thats the 2700k, these are 60watt on the box, 13-14watt actually. These number are actually put on the box if you look at them you can buy them from 4pk of about $10buck, to a 6pk which i've seen at $20.

    I don't use paper cups, even though i can, but i was lucky enough to be browsing a nusery, and i cam across what they call seedling pots, they are about the size of your hand, and have plenty of holes on the bottom, i use those, and then pot up or as needed, surprisingly i can keep the seedling in those for about 3 nodes up, till i have to replant to the final place, veg them for a little longer in there final hole, then switch to flowering and go from there. The cool thing about those little pots, is that they are reusable.

    when would be a good time to plant can u plant a seed in one of the seedling pots? Where do they sell seedling pots and do u then need to dig or transplant or just bury the seedling pot in a large container pot so it would be way easier it would be useful I smoked today bomb weed and got my new dope skateboard stolen earlier it was terrible i'm going to santa Monica and north hollywood, east hollywood, sherman oaks they are shutting down the streets for cars so skateboarders and bikers can ride on the streets starting in Little Tokyo where theres a Japanese museum i went to last year it was bomb.^^^:bigjoint:

    really any time you wish, if you can't find seedling pots you can use the old method of the red cups, buys a pack of red cup, pack is usually a couple of bucks, come home, grab a pair of sissors and a pocket knife. The pocket knife cut a ho,le it the bottom, and with the sissors cut out 4 corners in the cups. There you have you seedling pot, street style...lol. You can use the same cup for transplant too, just fyi.....basically cut the sides a little and the bottom out, you can slip it in you final pot for replanting. Dunno how many times i've done that method...lol
