Tip....

Make sure the soil is dryish before attempting repotting.....the roots will hold the soil together better, whereas wet soil usually falls apart, stressing the plant.....

Tip.....

Make sure the new soil is throughly soaked......

Tip.....

Know the dry weight vs wet weight of the new soil in its container.....

It'll help with watering/ feeding habits.....

It’s time adding a 4x4 tent to this room
Question is how to choose a light for it
Would be awesome to win one of the ac infinity lights and things would change
Still need something for this tent
Problem is still budget $250-300
Any suggestions?
I would like to use it for flower and the rest of the room 8’x11’ for clones and veg
Thanks

training some tonight first two pics of one done second is one I’m doing next
I have a lot of young growth in a lot of my plants not sure if that’s good or not
My lights are cheap $45 Menards I did raise them recently and seamed to help them stretch a bit
New lights coming Monday tent Friday
But will be stuck with these for veg or do I use one for veg till I get something better
These plants roughly 5 weeks since seedlings
Thoughts?

Honestly I like to just lst and defoil a little. I do like ur concepts here but I don't think I'd chop at n autoflower ya know. But I'd definitely try some photos considering I understand the outcomes of each chop.

no auto’s but ye I was wondering if I’m shading young growth by bending
They are young so gonna give it a bit patience isn’t easy for me but I don’t wanna fuck em up also see what happens with better lights but like bilber said I’ll keep doin what I’m doin feel line I have hope lol
I have a clone that’s a few weeks ahead of the rest and couple seedlings that are doing better

When will you go to 12/12 ?
That’s what I’m wondering I’m thinking 6-8 of them are close? I got a little carried away
I have a few more in a veg area with cheap Menards lights but these plants all spent there first six weeks there and did ok
I’m thinking I’ll pull a couple out and flip?

I did last night under metal halide $250 watt because we r thinking it's a male. If it is we want good stable seeds so we gonna let him go. We only assuming male because the stalk grows thick really quick. Unless others have opinions on this, we'll have to be patient.
Little funky. Lights are actually off at night to help keep sleeping cycle undisturbed as possible. What's happening here is it's n our basement out n the open. I have mh hanging 10"-12" above it. I have a fan pushing air through the heater to keep temps decent. It stay about 70°f. I don't care about humidity unless it shows real issues. It loves that mh a lot.

I had to take a picture like that because I had to send a review to Amazon because I ordered a mh bulb that blew before it even warmed. So I was illustrating that my ballast works, but not their bulb. It can go 110v-220v. The warm plug runs on 110v regardless, but that 400watt should've started. It did kinda start but blew brown on the arc tube.

I wouldn't take any out.....run um all....looks great......
No brother, it's just one plant. I had to remove it because it was too crowded with the big tote. I like it where it's at tbh because I can fully move around it and monitor it closely. Plus see how it thrives n a different area of environment. Our plan is to get greenhouse this spring. I'd like to set up a hydro system for mother plants and I'm also looking forward to trying some exotic plants out like flycatcher and perhaps donate to horticulture class for learning. Look brother, the Lord says without knowledge we will parish. This opportunity we've been given can help younger generation learn something so they have something to fall back on.
