Hi Tommy.WOW. After seeing your diary I Got myself some auto Cream Caramel and cant wait .I want to start NOW. Just a couple of questions for you if you dont mind.
1 - I would like to germinate in tissue and then put them in my veg room under 250 MH as I have no room for a cfl ( currently growing some clones) If I shade them slightly in a corner do you think this would be ok? Or would it stress them out so early?
2 - Am I too late to enter the competion?
heres what i did m8 kinda similar situation.
i used a 11w household cfl on an inspection lamp hung in my airing cupboard (would of worked just fine in growroom but was being prepped)
after a few days they had to go into the room under 250w hps set at 100cm,(as the 9 i germed (3 cc-auto) were getting too stretchy for my propagator), too avoid the light being too harsh, bought shading netting but never used it, kept checking regularly, plenty of tubs of water try to keep humidity up (difficult)
you could if you can, cut out my airing cupboard phase and put a propagator inside your tent, with your light set similar height, bring it down in small steps then at about day 10 i brought lights down to about 6 inches and went from there.
they loved it
dont know if any of that will help you m8.
have fun and no dude your good as long as they are ready by may your cool, so as long as you leave yourself about 70 days so last week of february is about the latest i guess.
