Finally some growth! Watered and fed them all, and took some pictures.

This is my bluest (and favorite) clone I decided to name 'Adriatic'.

If you can stand the purple color and do DC power safely, I've used these lights for trichos and they seem fine so far: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/10PCS-LOT-0-5M-12V-DC-10W-LED-Grow-Light-Strip-For-Hydroponic-Plants-Flowers-Vegatables/32621725025.html

 

edit: I don't know why they suddenly need you to make an account. I didn't need one 5 minutes ago before I checked the link. Maybe it's broken.

bloody ants! ive been lucky and they have left most of my cacti/succulents alone, but my chilli are another story. they have done serious damage farming bloody aphids! pretty well given up organic control, think im going to have to bite the bullet and go for some amdro :( do recommend although expensive http://davidgray.com.au/products-main/pest-control-supplies/insects/amdro450-detail

my wife evicted my innercity balcony lights... (paranoia)

 

the plus is that I moved them into a mates building shed onto larger shelves with wheels (to roll them out into the sun for some poetry when I visit on weekends)...
