Dear readers, this is my very first grow. Not the best idea starting it during my finals because I can't stpo thinking about them. First of all the germination went normal I think. As you see they popped out nicely. This fotos were taken on day 13. I don't have quite an idea of they are growing well but my guess is that they are behind on schedule. I think it is because I didn't gave them enough light at the start (16 hours). The last thee fotos are taken on day 15 and the past 2 days ive increased the light schedule with 2 hours and my feeling is that they have grown more in this 2 days then they did before. Can someone tell his/her opinion about this?
For the setup, im running this fluorescent lights, all 3 have 2200 lumen. I don't really know of this is enough. However more lights are on their way but I've also a question about that. I'm planning to add HPS lights, they come in handy in the flowering phase (with their warm-white colour) and they have 4500 lumen each. I was wondering if it matters putting them togheter with the white lights as we speak (because they will be another 3 weeks in vegetation and I'm not sure if it is "allowed" to use warm white color in this stage).
Also do I have to mention that I don't know the strains of the plants, I messed those up when i put t seeds in the water for the germination LOL. However, one of them has some strange colour changing on the leafs, i looked it up but the cause can literally be everything. Can anyone help me with that?
If you have any tips, feel free to let em know! Thanks!

Make sure you are using calmag as well... and that your water PH is in the 6.4-6.9 range.. that's a huge factor with leave changing. Good Luck!

Dear reader, I have 3 plants: the one with the blue badge is looking good but the other 2 are short in my opinion. They have lots of leaves and branches but they are like 12 cm high. Is this a problem? Solution? (Lights higher maybe?) Thanks!

That's good, they have not stretched because they receive a good amount of light and so they don't need to grow more stem. Keep in mind that what's important is that they develop nodes, leaves, side shoots, not stem. A squat plant is much better than a stretchy one, it will be easier to have a flat canopy and you will have much less risk of running out of space; LED bulbs are great for that. I invite you to visit my diaries where I'm using LED bulbs exclusively, they will give you much better results than CFL at a 25% the power draw of CFL. PRO TIP: take the plastic dome off, it will give you quite a boost in their light output.
