so guys i just started my first grow! :D
after many ppl told me to start with soil since i'm new to indoor growing! :P

Soil = http://www.biobizz.com/products/organic-substrates/light-mix

Nutriments = BioBizz Try-Pack Indoor + BioBizz Root Juice and BioBizz Acti-Vera

Light = Philips Son-T Pia Green Power 400W with Hammered Reflector 50cm reflector and ETI 400W MH & HPS

Containers = Air-Pot 10lit http://air-pot.com/

since i didnt had the money for tent and ventilation I decided to start my first grow with an automatic White Diesel Haze https://sensiseeds.com/en/feminized-seeds/whitelabel/white-diesel-haze-automatic inside an old closet 60X70X160 at my attic!

the temperature with the lights on is around 24-26°C!
i leave the door of the closet little open for fresh air.
after germinated the seed i put it in the Eazy Plug and this is what i took after 1 week! :)

20/9/15


22/9/15


any help/suggestions are appreciated!!!

Welcome to the forum HyDoR. It might be ok to keep the door open to stop your closet from becoming to hot but your seedlings will need moving air to grow strong.

All you need is small oscillating fan to keep the iar moving around and this will strengthen your seedlings stems.

Good luck with your grow hydor :).

What's the bulb? they only really sell two kind of hps near me sunmaster and growtec? Is it a HPS or a MH? Your ballast can take both bulbs.

I would recommend a tent as they are just an easy way to keep a good environment for your plants. You will need extraction too, not to bad now but in flower i'd want it, unless the wardrobe is left open?

I would try to save for a small extraction kit you can get a 4" or 100mil one for about £90. But if your going to get a tent later then buy the kit that will go in the tent.

Anyway, just thinking out loud :). Good look with your grow bud.

Be careful with the fan, make sure its moving and not just facing the seedling, I've heard that it can damage if too much, but it's never happen to me.

When you next take a photo take the plant away from the HPS. if you cant do it in normal light, then a house bulb or flash will give a better colour image than the HPS. Help for these guys to tell you what the problem is :).

it cant be nutrient problem since the soil is ok from food for one week!
also last night i have put 330ml of my solution Bio-Grow + Acti-Vera (1ml of both on 1L water)!

it was hot last day and the temperature hit 31°C but i drop it at 28 with the fan!

Hey bud looks like a little heat stress, but I'm sure the others who know more will say will say. A little over fed but not too bad. I'd move the light away some. Could also be from the fan too? TBH she looks good, but the 400 must be pelting some heat in that room.

I would invest in a "plug and grow" timer, they're only about 15 euros. For flower you want to make sure the light is on and off at the right times, so I think you'll need one then.

EDIT = Erm your growing a auto plant, lol. Erm, I don't even know what light cycle your meant to do with an auto, I've never grown one. maybe 12/12 from the start who knows?

I found this

"under 24-0 and 20-4 i was getting very poor results, averaging around 1/4oz to 3 8ths. this was from several plants all hit very poor yields,
under 12-12 i averaged around 2oz per plant."

but I didnt read the whole thread have a look on google for the best light schedual for an auto :).

i have bought a plug and grow timer today and i'm charging him (instructions saying it needs 14 hours) so later today i will use him!
after 8 hours in dark the leaves are still the same! :(
what else i have to do? its feeding problem or just heat stress? :S :(
