I know a lot of people mist, but I prefer just to do 2 oz at this stage every couple days or like @JoeBlow5823 says a shot glass or so.
I take it you aren't running the SW-3000 yet?

Sounds about right, and yes holding off maybe till the first sign of flowering.

I suggest introducing it at dimmed levels a couple weeks beforehand (with your other two lights) and gradually ramping it up so the plants can get used to the light. If it doesn't have a dimmer just raise it much higher. Just imo.

So at which point would you suggest adding the cobs then? I was thinking of just using two of the three though, does that make sense?

I think 2 of the 3 in a 4x4 would be over 31 watts per sq foot and should be fine. I would give them a few weeks and then try and introduce higher levels of light gradually. I was more meaning it if you were going to use all 3 because 400 watts to 700 is a big step. The plants might want to acclimate a little. Just going 4-500, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Thanks for the suggestions. Hopefully I don't screw this up.

Day 14(Since seeds were planted):

I never divulged that I wasn't the primary care taker for my girls. They are babied by me twice a week or when needed for emergencies.

At the moment they seem fine to my knowledge.
33" from the lights
Both lights maxed at 200 watts each
Sour diesel will be put under a single w-3000 cob to make up for the light drop off due to its position in the tent.

The sour Diesel still had it's seed stuck on top of her head when I stopped by. Pulled her out of the tent and removed it, and as of now it doesn't look as if any problems came from it.

As mentioned in one of my earlier post one of the Glue Gelato Autos didn't germinate. Sadly I missed placed my other 11 seeds and as of now haven't put a seed in it's place....


One of the other GGAs on the left seems very small compared to every other seedling in the bunch. Should I be worried about this? Will monitor her moving forward.( Possibly just sprouted later than the others)

That's it for day 14. I'm so glad I haven't seen any bugs. :clap::clap:(that finger crossing emoji would be nice)
