First time growing, just looking for a few answers

Good evening, we have recently set up a grow room running 4 x 400 watt lights over 6 plants. They are 2 weeks old from clone now.

The lights are running on 4 lumatek ballasts 400 volts with 600 watt lamps. On the ballast the minimum to run it at is 400 = 500 then 600. Which should I be running on and what’s the difference ?

The plants themselves look fairly healthy. I believe we were overwatering them for the first week. So have dropped it back to 1 feed a day.

We are running at ph 5.5 to 5.8
Then the chemicals at 1.2 to 1.4
Room temp is 27 during lights drops down to 20 ish during sleep.

I have a few poor looking leaves , should I leave them as they are ?

Any info would be hugely appreciated.


You have some healthy little girls there.
I’m a dirt guy - but tagging along :+1:t2: :sunglasses:

Looking good so far. I’m not seeing any leaves that jump out at me.

Thanks. I’ll keep posting as the 3 on th left look a lot better than the ones on the right.

2 weeks later they seem to be going well. On the small plant in the right corner she has a bit of leaf damage. Only on the 1 plant. Any ideas ?? IMG_2601 IMG_2600 IMG_2596 IMG_2597
