    Understood. I think I've narrowed it it down go something like this if not this exact one.

    Think the actual watts on that are 90 to 100w. Would be enough for a plant I'd guess but I'll let the more knowledgeable advise on whether it suits your space. Nice n cheap tho

    You're in a short space so for me that would be the worrying factor as you don't want a light that fries the plants.

    Yes that's why I was leaning more towards the screw in. Feel I may be able to handle heat and won't burn plants as easy (I think lol) plus I can and a remove them as needed.
    Damnit I just confused myself! Lmao

    If you are going to stay in the small grow space, then 120w of CFL is probably the way to go. What i would use is 120w 6500k (blue) bulb(s) for vegging, then switch to the same strength 2700k (red) for flowering. If temps will allow, leave the blue bulb on throughout flower as well.

    Building your own LED would probably be more efficient, but i have no idea about that

    OK I bought an 8 pack led 60w but only able to fit 6 in without bulbs touching. I think I have a solution to get all 8 in tho lol. Also grabed some things for Diy light trap. I don't have time to really mess around with it until later. (It's match day!) Here's a shot of the little ones basking in their new glory lol

    This Is Roughly 7-9 days from seed. Just gave it a full watering yesterday after pots were dry/very light.

    Any thoughts so far? Can't wait to see these new bulbs in action lol

    Day 14: nothing special besides normal growth and the bigger one has a very heavy skunky smell already! I can't stop sniffing it lmao just gave them a lititle water as leaves started to hang slightly. Temps dropped last night due to room being so cold from snow. But all is back to normal. Here's a few pics after watering today. PH on water is 6.8-7.0

    OK guys so bad news(I think). Today I decided to top the Older one. As I do so I noticed balls! (I think) pls help me determine if it is in fact balls or just some type of new growth. Its only in the area where I just topped. Gonna wait to see if anymore pop up in a few days before I chuck it. I have more beans to germ so no worries if it is. I hope pics are clear enough.

    How about some fems or auto fems? Whole load more reliable than bag seed

    OK so a lot has changed since my last post. things are going great if not better than what I expected.

    Last time I got one male so decided to germ the rest of the bag seeds I had left. 2 of the 4 popped. Planted both in soil abut a week ago. The older plant that was still going from when I first started finally showed white hairs today!(I think) also bought some feed for the older one. Gonna start half strength feeding once pot dries out more. All comments and concerns are welcomed!

    P.s. I know I did a shitty job at topping lol. It was my first try I was nervous af! Lmao

    OK just a quick update.. Been letting the Plants do what they do. Except one is clearly a male. Giving 1/4 strength feeding to younger one and 1/2 to flowering one. Kinda slow so havent had much to really tell lol here's a few pics of the progress


    Pics1&2 Oldest plant flowering
    Pic 3- still no signs of sex so hoping it's a good thing.

    Pic 4&5- male plant... I fim'd this one a little over a week ago before it showed it's true colors lol and it has about 6+ new tops! I was kinda sad seeing the balls. I'll admit this was the first disappoint for me since beginning to grow lol. I'll definitely be using this technique in the near future tho. Thinking I should maybe put it outside of on my sun porch. I really would love to see it grow out. Maybe collect some pollen and use the rest for edibles?? Anyone else keep their males for any other reason besides for breeding/collecting pollen?

    EDIT: Male has been put outside just because lol probably gonna take the clone route once I've completed this grow and start fresh. But also gonna try my hand in making my own seeds. Just seems so interesting I'd like to try it! So gonna collect some pollen from male(unknown bagseed)

    Here's a few pics of my setup. Everything seems to be going well as for as environment. My thermometer unfortunately doesn't measure humidity only Temps in my box and temp in my actual room. Gonna look into getting one with humidity reading soon. Going to also add another fan on opposite side to just blow above plants. The red tray on bottom is a cupcake holder($1) I use when watering for drainage. Any advise on improving or fixing something pls enlighten me lol
