I live san francisco California.
The weather can be really bipolar out here.

Good thing I brought a grow light to make up for it

And thank you. I want big red traps though.

You think the mixture of the white/red/blue makes better growth vs having just red and Blue grow light?

So I have two families, it's been like a month since I got them.

I grow both inside and out. But most of the time there outside.

And I know that we are suppose to let them stay outside. Because thats how they thrive.

But in my situation the cats around here keeps messing with my traps

Already lost two beautiful traps.

So that why I keep them out in the day while I'm at work and bring in at night so the night crawler won't get to them

But most of all, their still healthy from what I see.

There sprouting traps like crazy.

There lots questions that I have since I am a newbie ๐Ÿ˜‚

They usually deform when they are not receiving enough light

Hmm probably from last week. There was zero sun that week and pretty sure that caused it to grow that way

Hopefully the grow light can fix that.
