Default good kind bud in the 11 Hydro

I have a few questions regarding growing some good kind bud in the 11 Hydro set up shown on this site.

1. First of all, how do you hold the rooted seeds in the 2 liter bottles.

2. What kind of lighting would you recommend, this setup will be in a large closet approx 12' long x 6' wide.

3. I will be using a controller that is interfaced with my computer via Ethernet and using relays I can control the lighting, and the watering. What is the best schedule of lights and watering for the first 2 weeks of growth, till they start budding.

4. I do not want to start with 11 plants, maybe 5 at first and then clone the females that way I can attain a never ending harvesting cycle.

5. What kind of mixture of Formula A Hydro solution w/ water do you use. And how large of a Rubbermaid tank do you use for the 11 Plant setup?

Any other information that you all can provide me with would be greatly appreciated, this is my first attempt at indoor gardening, only other thing I've grown is P.cubenis ...

Start your seeds in vermiculite and when your seedlings get big enough (about 3") then carefully place them in the 16 once solo cup with the grow rocks. Then place them in the 2-liter bottle garden.

I would use 3 - 400 Watt metal halide or 3 high pressure sodium or a mix of the two.

Water ever 20 minutes for maximum force feeding the bastards. Vegetation stage lights has to be on at least 16 hours a day, if your on a budget, or as much as 24 hours if you have deep pockets. Then change the light cycle to 12 on 12 off to induce budding.

must be a light smoker

Read the label on the bottle and 11 gallon container is shone in my pictures but you can use any size larger than that if you don't want to fill it so often..
