Thank you everyone. I still have some excel left, but the gallon of Metricide 14 is arriving via FedEx today. I'm still shocked how much my plants have grown!!!! Every day I see several new swards popping up!!!

I'm using Flourish Complete weekly, is this good? Should I do more? Something better? Trying to do low tech cheap. :-)

Also instead of having the lights on 8 hours straight per day, I change to 4 hours on, and then 2 off, then 4 on, then off all night.
