ok i added water to make the soil all over in that box moist, I put the lights really close like u guys said. I put a small fan by the plant. But now i have a few questions, with the lights that close to the plants wont it cause them to dry out fast? With the fan by the plant it now moves a lil, isnt that bad?jackel wrote:im sorry i couldnt wait for that pic to load. im on dial up and that thing was just HUGE.. resize to about 400x600. but from what i did see, u defn want to put an oscilating fan on those things.. they will start to fall over soon. u want ur lights about 2 Inches away from the plants. and that soil looks REALL dry..
Ok i have some good news and some bad news, 2 of my other plants sprouted, so thats 5 growing . Now for the bad news. Im not sure what it means but now that i put the lights real close to the main plany like u guys suggest the leafs like are aiming up.... Is it dieing? are u sure those lights wont try it out? I mean it raises my closets temps from 60 to almost 80 in there. help please!jackel wrote:florescents dont put off shit for heat. so dont worry about that.. Fans making it move, its Suppose to. what that does is causes the stem to get tiny fractures in it, then it heals those fractures and makes the stem stronger. thats how u get HUGE STalks on outdoor plants.. wind makes them stronger.

As far as temps, that sounds like a big jump in temp for FL. I only went from 75 Deg to 80 when I put my 250 watter in there. But try to get some air movement even if its just blowing hot air around. But need to get freash cool air in if possable
how much are they thou? im currently trying to save money, and it isnt goining well with all the plant needs loljackel wrote:plants dont look fried to me.. look more happy. but ya those are reg house bulbs. get some Compact floros
