I've watched people growing, but never done it myself.
I have 6 green crack, the are photoperiod plants.
3 (maybe 4?) hubba bubba, I'm told they are autoflower but might have a male or 2 in the bunch.
1 northern lights, an autoflower feminized .
I think 4 days old

Temps are back to normal finally. This was when the lights just came on, I'm trying to keep it under 80.

My swamp cooler, doing it's thing:

It's hard to see (lower left), but this is the baby I might have killed with a toothpick:

It hadn't sprouted, so I tried to help it:nono: Bad move.
HO t5 lights, Black Magic soil, Advanced Nutrients for fertilizer when the time comes (gifted, I'm not sure how old they are).
I have a lot of notes and advice from my friend, I'm hoping to make this a good go.

Hey steve....T5's are good for vegetative growth, but you might want to look into something with a little more bang for lighting for the flowering phase. Some LEDs can be had for cheap on ebay or amazon and have a deeper useful range compared to T5's.

I'm renting this house, and the equipment too, I guess.
I've seen what t5's have done here... I'll stick with them. Still reading notes to figure out K values, but I know for a fact florescents will make great smoke and great medicine.
No disrespect intended, WW:bow:

No problem at all man....must have some banks of t5's to work with i guess? I just always found that T5 lighting bud always seems to lack in density...good for the tip tops, but then turns into fluffy bud. Then again i wasnt running banks of t5's either!! Didnt mean to try to deter you away from them.
