Ok first off high everyone, I want to start my first grow soon and need some good advice from those that know what there doing. As you can tell from the topic title I'm going to me doing a scrog under a single 300w cfl, plants will be in hempy buckets. Someone told me that I would only get 2 plants in a scrog under this light, is that right? Also does anyone see any problems with what I want to do?.
Many thanks and happy tokein!
How big hempy's?
I know it's been said before but get a 250w hps, you'll double/triple the bud and get 1 m,ore crop a year.
For that size I'd do 1 plant in a hempy doesn't take long for clones to get going in hempy's and I'd us a 10 ltr bucket B&Q special £1. I takes a week or so to root well into hempys then they go mad.

And cant really give any advice really as of yet as needs know what space your using + extraction. We know you got 2x 125w enviros A 250w HID could be a great advantage but cant say so as of we dont know what size space your using(sounds like you got enough floor space as you can fit 2x 125ws,) you need some headspace.
Before you start in hempyb's you should use propagation cubes for the first week or two, then transplant into the buckets.

A 250w in that space is perfect- i think it works out to 60w psf(per sq ft) and 50 is max you really need ..You will need to get better extraction, 5inch ruck & cf will do you fine. Your yields will be alot better
eta: if you can you could make a veg box and use a single 125w enviro + your bathroom fan your using at the minute. Keep a couple mums + clones + veg up some more ready for when the current lot have finished flowering. Speeds grows up quite alot.

If you to do more do 4, 1 per sqft, will shave a week of veg time, if you can keep a mum and grow clones under 1-2 20w cfl's , you can really cut down turn around time, upgrade the extraction, keep the pc fans for a little mum box.

Thanks tutu, I'm gonna go with 2 I think. 5oz sounds good to me, any suggestions on strain?
Depends what you want really but you can't really go wrong with Killer skunk will get you mashed with a nice yield and a nice taste.
I'm growing chronic but I think it might be a bit of a waste under a 250w (You shouldn't top chronic which kind of fooks up training, very important with a 250w to get the most out of it.)
If you want to grow feminised seeds I have nothing but good things to say about grapefruit female seeds.

CFL'S are great for veggin you should get 2 big buckets under your 2 cfls i use 6.5 ltr final pots and get 4 under my 300watt cfl
im also flowering now with 250watt red cfls and for a bit of personnal in a small growdrobe there pretty good... 7 dry onze's rom 4 plants cant be sniffed at ...
