    beginning of first grow

    Yo everyone whats goin on, Im about start my first grow and I have 4 seeds germinating right now.

    Im not really sure where to go after germination, Ive read up on websites for about a week and have found a billion different answers, some people say put 4 seeds in a pot, others one pot one seed, I am not sure what to do here.

    also, what is the ratio of male to female, like with 4 seeds, do I have a chance for at least one female?

    I have also read mixed information about lighting, I was able to purchase a 65 watt grolight (that I found at home depot) I would have like to add more wattage but the lamp it is in runs risk of fire over 65 (dont want my house burnin down for this.) Do these gro-lights work? or is it just flourecents?


    I am growing in my closet with the walls painted white and tin foil to reflect the light towards the pot.


    Let me know some suggestions as well, I really want this to work, being a surfer, I need my daily 8th blunt!

    Yeah one seed in one pot is best then you don't have to worry about roots getting tangled. A general rule is half will be female and half will be male, but i usually get a slightly better ratio, maybe 65/35. Sorry can't help with your lighting question, i've not heard of the light you've got.

    Peace

    is it a sylvania spot-grow? If so its pretty much useless. I started my first seedlings with a 120w spot grow and they stretched bad. Those are just incandescent blubs painted to kinda look floruescent.

    get some cfls (compact floruescent). its the lights that look like spirals. walmart has 26w cfls in the "daylight" color, 6500k. everyone has been saying thats the best for growing your plants until its time to start budding them. they dont put off anymore heat than a regular 60w bulb.
