I have germed; 6 Northern Lights and 4 White Castle (White Widowx Nirvana's Ice). All seeds came from Nirvana. I was 10 out of 10 on the germ. I'm hopeing to get 2NL and 1WC females.
BTW this is a soil grow.
The soil mix; 5 parts Hyponex soil, 3 parts Coast of Maine (Penobscot Blend) compost, and 2 parts Perlite.
Lights: 2 T5HO 4' l, 4 lamps each.
Lamps; 8 T5HO 6500k (for veg).
These plants will be in a grow tent by the time the long weekend is over. Had some family issues to deal with and didn't get the tent set up before they needed light.
I am planning on useing Humboldt Organic nutes. More on that later.

Sorry the pics are not to good. I need to find the manual for my camera so I can use the macro.
BTW The soil was to the top of the cups but I didn't pack it down because I new the soil would settle during watering. I water useing a condiment bottle from the dollar store.
The lights where purposely left a little high from the top of the plants because I want some strech so I can back fill the cups thus getting more root from the part of the stem that gets buried. The lights are about 8" high and I thought that I'd have more strech so far.
Well I hope all the good people at GP will find this useful or tell me what I'm doing wrong!!
P.S. the pics will enlarge if clicked on.
