Hiya Fellow Nepers-
About 6 weeks ago, I acquired a 10" bical. It is being grown in a 50 gal hex terror-ium (yes, I have a greenhouse, just wanna keep it in the living room where I can see it daily ) with a humidity and temp about 90. It is set very near to a southern window which currently gets whatever sun comes out here in the NW (which is about 8 hours a day).
I believe its acclimating well, it is almost done throwing out its first leaf for me. But here is the weird thing, so I'm thinking, to supplement its photoperiod with a some artificial light. So I hit it with a 250w CFL grow light bulb at 12" away early in the morning. I go back to check on it 3 hours later, the new leaf went limp Looked like it needed a shot of viagra. So I turned the light off and just let the natural light from the window come through. An hour later, the leaf looked liked the blue pill kicked in.
Should I just do without the supplemental light, or just increase the light distance? I really don't want to stress it out. What say ye
Comments, advice, info, experience to pass on?
Any help woud be greatly appreiated.
Thanks and good growing
