Woo hoo, another grow journal!!

Looks like you got yourself a nice setup...

What's that water bottle by the light?..it look like it's floating haha

A tip I can give you right now is to be careful not to overwater those seedling. It's easy to do in larger pots like you have. You gotta make sure the pot is dry at the bottom too, not only the first few inches. The best way to gauge how much moisture is in the pot is by weight. MJ plants do not like to be watered everyday. Too much moisture at the bottom of the pots will cause root rot

Ok ive just read that keeping plants under 24hr light increases your chances of getting males i understand that growing 24hr light creates more vegatation but i want to maximize my chances if getting females, has anyone ever tried to knock their lightcycle to 16hr??..

The usual lights for veg. is 18/6, 20/4, and 24/0 where the 18/6 and 24/0 are more commonly done, don't bother going to 16 hours as it will just slow down your growth rate

Well for starters are you looking to do an organic grow or non-organic or you don't really care or don't know which?

What are the ressources available in your area for acquiring soil, nutrients etc? Do you have a hydroponic store nearby or just a garden center at the local hardware store, or do you need to order things online?

Are you on a limited budget or you want the best of the best regardless of cost?

Are you in the US or UK or what if I may ask?

Can you find me a link to the exact soil mix they are in now please? There seems to be several and I'm not sure which one you have

Here`s the soil they in at moment http://www.gardencentre.co.uk/product.asp?id=5923

Im an organic man its what nature intended but i have problems with finding soil that has its NPK & traces the packaging when i do its usually way to low, i live in a dingy coastal town in the UK where we`ve only just got KFC never mind hydroponics shops lol so its garden center for me i would get canna bio terra but having several bags of canna soil dropped on my doorstep in the area i live is kinda a bad idea NOSEY STONER NEIGHBOURS(Like me), & i want to give them everything so they be the best they can be regardless of cost
