Thanks troutman! Exactly what I wanted to hear. I've got the seedlings under 18/6 currently but I'll switch that up to 14/10 shortly. I saw a post where you mentioned they dont require more than 14hrs of light in veg and anymore is a waste of $.
My plan was to switch to flower at absolutely no taller than 12". Topped at least once, if not twice. But I also have a 2 week vacation coming up so I have to play it by ear. Take it as it comes.
I use super soils, one is store bought and I find it's not hot. Never burned new seedlings. Also never provided enough nutrients to take them to harvest. I also build my own recycled soil that is heavily amended and had nitrogen toxicity on the last round but did provide nutrients right to harvest. I was thinking I might throw in 1/4 of the hot stuff mixed into the mild but I dont want to fry them. So I probably best just use the mild and use fertilizer when required.
