    hey what's up, i'm new to the GK forums (that is i was finally approved to post) i've been poking around here for a while now. reading the post the regulars are throwing down you're all some very helpful, classy peeps.

    anyway, let's talk cultivation!! YEAH!! i'm just going to come out and say it, i've never grown my own green to the point of smoke...:sad11: ...i've germinated a few bag seeds that i find just for the hell of it, but now i want to step it up to the next level! so what i ask of you fine folks is to share with me some of the easiest steps that i should do right away to help grow. what's the biggest issue right off the bat? do i focus on soil? nutes? lighting? i know that they are all important but what is most important?

    anyway i know i'm a noob to all this so be gentle.... thanks, you guys rock.

    I agree.....knowledge is THE most important tool you can have. Most times newbies put the horse before the cart and then wonder why they lose their crop. Gotta read as much as you can...then read again. Only then will you have the power to grow till ya smoke. :animbong:

    Welcome :wave:

    I'm not sure they carry mylar there, but I do know that they carry flat white paint. :ebert: As for the HPS...gonna have to order it if ya don;t have a local hydro shop handy. OSH doesn't carry what you need unless you're prepared to rewire it yourself and build your own reflector.

    there are a couple of hydroponic stores in my area now that i think about it. i'll hit them up for some lighting options.

    but speaking on that subject what is the difference (not mechanically) between florescent and CLR and HPS? i keep hearing about how i need an HPS set up but i also keep seeing pics with florescent, so what's the deal with that?

    The biggest difference between Florescents (CFL's) and HPS is the intensity they put out. That's measured in 'lumens'. The more intensity...the bigger and tighter the buds.

    sweet, so the more lumens the more bud? pretty simple formula. thanks!
