The Indoor Mix package contains 40 seeds.
The seeds this packet are the various Sensi Seeds Indica varieties for Indoor and Indoor/Greenhouse, mixed in random proportions.

The seeds are not labeled, separated by strain or differentiated in any way.

There are 19 different Indica varieties on Sensi Seed Bank's Indoor and Indoor/Greenhouse lists. The Indoor Mix may contain any or all of these, but we have no indications as to how many or how few of each variety will be in a given packet.

The possible strains contained in the mix are:
                      
                        •       Shiva Shanti 1
                        •       Shiva Shanti 2
                        •       Shiva Skunk
                        •       Skunk #1
                        •       Sensi Skunk
                        •       Super Skunk
                        •       Skunk Kush
                        •       Hindu Kush
                        •       Four Way
                        •       California Indica
                        •       Afghani #1
                        •       Maple Leaf Indica
                        •       First Lady                      
                        •       Silver Pearl
                        •       American Dream
                        •       Big Bud
                        •       Black Domina
                        •       Northern Lights
                        •       Hash Plant
                        •       Mr. Nice - G-13 x Hash Plant

The proportions change throughout the year, but you can always assume that there will be a fair number of Skunks and Afghanis in the mix, as they make up a large proportion of the Indica list.

For the growing stage:

  • Metal halide (MH) - usually 400w
  • Fluorescent tubes - 36w per 120cm tube
  • CF bulbs (the giant version of the 'energy saver' screw-in fluoros) - 100-200w

Cheaper, less power-consuming lights are OK for the growing stage.

For the flowering stage:

You should really use high pressure sodium (HPS), as these will encourage the biggest, fattest buds.

  • It's possible to flower with a 250w HP
  • A 400w HPS is better, more efficient and is one of the most versatile growing lights (can also be used for the growing stage if equipped with a SON-T-AGRO bulb).
  • a 600w HPS is more efficient again and provides some of the most effective lighting for indoor flowering.

There are no energy savers when it comes to flowering.  You have to use at least 400W or you won't get decent buds. 

The electricity bills are always going to be huge but they are nothing compared to the price of buying good bud.

ho mate when i started in sept i got a 250hps did it all with that then i took some clones rooted under 2 1ft flurecent tubes i then got a 125watt blue enviro light for veg,

i got 2-21/2 oz off my first plants under s 250hps i've since got a 600hps which i run along side my 250hps for flowering and use my blue enviro for veg, my enviro cost £45 with shade, you can get 200watt to,

you can get red ones for flowering but in a test in 1m2 18 clones where veggeed for 28 days in 1 room under a 400hps and 2 blue 125watt then flowered under 2 red 200watt enviro at the end

the 400hps room had 6 chronic plants tottal dry bud 250grams and in the enviro room 9 plants total dry bud 150 grams

so enviro are good for veg but if you cxan flower with a hps i would always pick the hps for flowering

what i want to do next is get a m/h bulb for my 250watt so i'll have a 600hps & 250m/h for flowering giving a better light spectrum for flowering this is not nesecrey but it should geive better results

do a search on envirolights mate, thats another name for cfls there normally 125watt and 200watt they come in blue for clones & veg and red for flowering and i think you can get dual specs, powerplanter do a 110watt and 180watt ones thought, the advantage with enviros is you don't need to worry about heat as much and can use them in a much smaller area my veg box is an old set of draws with all the draw fronts fastened together like a door so from thew outside looks like a normal set of draws, i have 2 skunk #1 8 white russian Clones and 5 jack flash seeds cracked and germin and i have blueberry and passion #1 coming this week passion is for gurrilla growing but is gonna get vegged in there then i'll clone for sex find a good girl and clone her then but them outside this way i'll have a female crop
