Light Cycles
A light cycle is the amount of light and darkness within a 24 hour period. Throughout its life, your marijuana plant will require different amounts of light depending on what growth stage it has reached. Having your plant on the correct light cycle is important if you’re going to grow good quality weed. Putting your plant on the wrong cycle can put it under stress resulting in a hermaphrodite plant and small amounts of weak marijuana.
You can use the following table to see what light cycles you should be on for the various stages of your marijuana plants life cycle, to help ensure you’re getting the most out of your marijuana grow lights.

What are the Costs?
$40 for a 100watt bulb.
Flat White Paint – Contains little or no light-absorbing pigment and therefore reflects large amount of light. Use a matt texture as it reflects more light.

Life

In this topic you should come out with an understanding of the terms used in lighting, the types of marijuana lighting available for your marijuana grow room, and the light cycles you will need for the different stages of your marijuana plants life cycle.

Brilliance
Brilliance is used to discuss the clarity and the sharpness of the light as it gets further away from the source, or in this case, the bulb. As you get further away from the light source, its brilliance deteriorates. This affects how far away you keep the plant from your marijuana grow lights:: too far away and you’ll stretch and weaken your plants; too close and you’ll burn and damage them.
Best practice:
To get the most out of fluorescent tubes, you will need to keep them 6-8 inches away from your plant. They are good for use on clones and seedlings or for vegetative growth. Try to avoid using them for flowering.

What are they?
Compact fluorescent lights or CFLs are similar to standard fluorescent tubes, but are smaller in size and boast increased power. They are available in both daylight (6500k) and warm/soft light (2700k) and generate very little heat so are ideal for smaller grow spaces.

Great start on your grow. You have some nice looking young ladies there. I think you are going about this in a smart way. A modest investment, basic gear to find out if growing is something you will enjoy. You can upgrade and add various components – like a fancy light system – later on.

Is there slow release fertilizer in that soil? If yes you may not need to add any.
Nice title Rick And welcome to 420 MAG
Hello Ricky . welcome to the best cannabis site in the world.
One suggestion – be careful with that soil and possible overwatering. There is a lot less drainage material (the white bits) in that mix than is suggested. 25% by volume would be about minimum and some go as high as 100%. Good luck.
One of my friends got a job on a major electronic components company. He is specialised on LED sales and he said that eventhough the label on most of the products say CREE, like the chips on my DIY LED kit, they are fake. That is not a problem but the amount of light decreases dramatically. Your setup looks proper for early veg. but I really suggest you to invest more on lights. I just bought Viparspectra reflector series and I think their price is real fair. If you decide to buy one of these, get the red boosted version for better flowering. It would be even better if you get a Growant kit with Osram Horticulture LED’s. They will definately improve the yield and quality. You will spent at least 4 months for a proper grow and you should get a good result to make it worth your while.

So I had posted this in the "introduce yourself" thread and decided it would be better here since I'm going to continuously upload progress and photos…
