Wing and a prayer was my plan. 🤦🏽‍♀️ I’d love some guidance. These were planted 2/5. Fox Farms soil, super cheap Amazon LED lights and a red LED. Truly no clue what I’m doing but open to any and all feedback! Thanks in advance and happy Friday eve!

they are looking good but you'r gonna need a proper light to get decent results when flowering. Not one from a shadowy chineese led manufacturer you'll find on amazon and ali express they rarely advertise on the true wattage of their led fixtures ...

here's a few of the most used and rather cheap led manufacturer: (i suggest you have a look at their official web sites)

spiderfarmer, hlg, viparspectra, phlizon, vivosun, ac infinity, mars hydro ...

how many watt your gonna need gonna depend on what surface you want to cover when flowering.

for a 2x2 100W to 200W led

for a 2x4 200W to 450W led

for a 3x3 300W to 500W led

for a 4x4 or 500W to 860W led

for a 5x5 or 700w to 1000W led

I agree with @HerbalEdu about the light.

The next best thing to add would be a grow tent. Tents provide a growing environment, plus they provide a way to hang the light.

After that, there are surprisingly many things a grower could buy. The list could include fans, a heater, a humidifier, fabric pots and more.

I got this one from the recommended list sent by HerbalEdu. I have 9 plants and only plan to grow what I can use.
I have all VIVOSUN products, they are a US based company out in Cali but im unaware if they manufacture in the US or just have the business here. Im a new grower so not much experience with them but after talking about my kit and posting it no one has really said anything negative about it.

i think you need one and/or the other controller and HUB as well with that model:

e25 controller 19$:
e42a controller hub 79$:
you may just need the e25 controller to be able to controll the light from your phone i think.

That looks like an excellent light. @HerbalEdu won't steer you wrong. I also recommend a controller for the light (and other devices). You'll need to schedule when the light is on and off. During the vegetation stage, it's common to run the light on an 18/6 schedule — 18 hours on and 6 hours off. The power is also increased into the flowering stage.

One of the challenges of inside growing is vertical space, i.e., the distance from the plant to the light. These plants can grow tall and it's best to have about 18 inches between the top of the plant (at harvest) and the light. You'll need to keep that in mind as you plan your grow. A rough estimate is to change the light to flowering schedule when the plant crowns are 1/3 the distance from the soil to the light. These plants can double their height within two weeks of the light schedule change. It's known as "the stretch."

I have 9 plants and only plan to grow what I can use.
That should be plenty. I only grow three plants at a time for just the two of us, and we still give some of it away. I usually get about 4 ounces per plant. Right now, I have three that are ready to flower and two clones that I'll probably grow outside.

i have 8 plants under a spiderfarmer sf2000 200W (wich is equivalent to yours so) in a 2x3 tent this is what it look like in term of plant spacing (SOG, short veg, no topping, no lst)
Looks good! As always. My growing style is to grow a few plants and veg long, with some pruning and training. Your style is better for the OP's 9 plants.
