Room is about a 2x4 maybe a little more room.
Lights are 1 spider farmer sf1000 and 1 viparspectra xs1500.
Started some beans I found in couple bags .
3 seeds from a bag of WHAM! from The Holding Company
1 seed from a bag of Gelly Milk from glass jar...don't have any more info lol
2 seeds from a couple bags of Alpha Runtz from Local Grove

Started the WHAM about 7-10 days before the others, sprouted on 8/22/22 . I killed one transplanting them out of the starting tray....don't like those trays will use solo cups next time. So I have 2 .
The other 3 seeds Started in same tray, sprouted between Aug 27 and 29th
All put in 3 gal felt like grow bags. Straight pro mix , the red bag, no added nutrients at all. Lights were 36" from tops at about 50% for awhile.
After sometime I lowered lights to 18 " at 100%. I don't think the gelly liked that but oh well I'm learning.

Your first tent grow from seed, I think they look great. I’ve done a couple grows with great results, and have a set of seedlings now struggling a bit. I tried Rogue Soils Launch Pad to start these this time, then they’ll go into their Rocket Fuel soil, and I hope it works out. Yours look great for no nutes at all. I use the General Hydroponics Flora Trio and their Cal Mag, it all worked great. Can you post a pic of the ProMix you used. Thanks!

This is the bag I used, I did add a top dressing of dr earth's all purpose 4-4-4 about a week or 2 ago , but before that yea no nutes at all and just tap water I'd let sit around for a few days.

Thx! One thing I learned is always check the pH of your water, with or without nutes added, 6.75 is a good target, and a pH pen is easiest to check it. I have a 4x8 tent and have had 12 inside, so I’ve prepped up to 8 gallons at a time.

I know it’s hard, but have patience, the flowers will appear and build. You should think about nutrients. I mentioned I use the GH Flora Trio and Cal-Mag, I have measurements to use if you’re interested. They’re easy on the plants, good results and no nute burn. The amount of summer sun here is unpredictable, but I did try another 6 autos outside this year (ended in bud rot) but it was the first time I used the nutes every watering and they grew and flowered real big. BTW, I also use 2 XS1500’s with 2 ViparSpectra VA1200’s (the old-school blue/purple ones) and the plants still like them. And remember…always check your pH!

Stopped by a buddies and took him some of my lollipop cuts I took off of them . He ended up letting me borrow a 1000w lumatek ballast with a raptor hood and hps bulb. Wondering if I could use it to flower in my space .....but it's kinda small space

I don’t know anything about HPS lights, but I would think your current lights would be sufficient. Most I’ve read say lights at 100% during flower, just make sure they’re far enough away that they cause no damage to the flower tops. I’ve done 100% with mine both tents and 12-18” away and it went OK.

Well I finally cleaned out my spare room .....smh talk about over due. I put the 1000w in there , and sealed it up for darkness. I have a small access panel door near the floor on a wall. It's upstairs and upon investigation it looks like an attic type crawl space thing for the part if the house must have been added on. Anyways wondering if I should pull air from there or expell air into it? I have a stand up a.c . I'm going to have to use I think . And I also don't have the light exhausted yet . So many questions and so much work ....so little time

I've blown the fuse that runs the lights and a.c. twice now. Once it happened when I put my 2 led lights in the flower room with the 1000w hps....lol ....what in idiot 🤪 anyways , it resulted in light being out for idk how long and then I clicked it back on and lights came on and I had to remove the leds....didn't think about the confusion of the plants until I was already done and sitting there smoking, lights out was only about an hour away I should have waited but I didn't.
Second time resulted in lights going out early about 3 hours that day and coming on about 3 hours late the next.
Long winded ass story later and my question is did I fuck them up or should we be OK 👍?

If I wanted to flip the light cycles how should I go about it? Do I keep em off for 24 or light for 24? I'm to the understanding that 24 hrs of light isn't good ?
