Nice videos … raise your temps to atleast 84 … remember led don’t have infra red which is what the leafs use to heat the leaf surface up which In turn gets the metabolism going full speed… = equals explosive and more growth …I see your running the co2 so you could even push temps a little higher to open up the leafs pores to make use of that co2

Thanks @chris_barfield Chris.

The cheapo thermometer you see is off several degrees in true temp, but within 4 degrees of rH. It’s only in there for rH readings. The exhaust fan (top left) has a closer to accurate temp and rH sensor. It’s harder to see when the light is on though and difficult to see with the camera due to position (gotta fix that). Temps with lights on (18” 80/83 degrees) when running the co2 the temps are only slightly higher when I kill all of the fans (4 pole fans and floor fan).
When the 4 pole fans are on low, the floor fan on low and the outage fan set at 6 of 10 the temps throughout are 78 degrees with the humidity of 70-80%. Because the LED does not push a lot of heat I struggle to get the temps much higher than very low 80’s. I do agree that ideally the temps would be higher in general and especially when the co2 is engaged. I shot you a PM in regards to your thoughts on a secondary light like a reflector, when you have a minute, thanks. Since I run AC 3/4ths of the year I’m open to suggestions on how to raise temps in the tent.


This sensor is near the top of the tent (inside)

That DIY co2 generator
Mix
2-3 cups of sugar
1 tablespoon of baking soda
1/4th gallon of water
Shake well
Now add 3-6 tablespoons of instant dry yeast shake again. Takes about 15 minutes for the co2 to build up and start pushing into the second and third chambers. Adding some Kellogg’s corn flakes will lessen the smell and provides additional food for the yeast.

Works for about 24 hours doubling the co2 in the tent directly below the tube to roughly 3200-3400 ppm - shake the milk gallon halfway through the day to jump start the reaction again. Thoroughly clean after each use.

Just throw a small heater with thermostat to dial in the heat. Use it outside the tent. :+1::v:

Yea I would say the same or a dehumidifier will raise heat and take away humidity … I’m having some humidity issues as well but I have to wait till next paycheck to get a heater and dehumidifier … for the size of your tent one of small 50 dollar dehumidifier would work cuz it works in my 4x4… as far as supplemental lighting I’m not really sure you will
Need it as the sp250 is a great light plus you don’t want to overkill the canopy with too much ppfd since the tent is a smaller one … I think your good with just sp250 … you could put a cob or two in there but they won’t raise heat much and the results might not outweigh the cost to purchase and run them

Hello :seedling:Growers!

Not much happening w/ my grow to Update about. Just continuing the training and vegging. Plants are happy. Starting to take more water and started feeding nutes 12 days ago. Considered flipping, but will top once more and consider again. Plenty of space available and canopy is mostly even.

Video Update- Week 4-6 Uploaded

Thoughts and comments are appreciated

Looks beautiful! I want to try this in the Grobo but idk how I would go about anchoring the plant towards the lid

I was using standard plant safe wire Gauge is good, not too think easy to twist up, but strong enough to hold a growing plant

and magnetic hooks Strong magnets . My measurements show 8 colas would easily fit the grobos space and probably even 16 if you trained early and often. In my grows I didn’t follow the standard nugbuckets manifold. This would be much longer vertically and may not fit properly; but is significantly easier to manage the colas later as they grow in the same directions as seen here where you remove the second node

The only issue you’ll have is unhooking magnets and tie downs in the event you must get into the reservoir. I had all types of issues with fill and drains so it’s was a burden, but for those that don’t have these issues this would work quite well and easier to manage in comparison to a tent as you can slide the magnets as your plant grows horizontally in the metal grobo.

@Russel_Richardson and @James: I noticed somebody else was using command hooks attached to the lid for that:

I’ve seen this as well @vegetato and it should work too. Kinda like a 3m tape, but could get messy trying to remove it and once in place no longer will you have the ability to adjust it or move it with the plant growth. It’s good to have options. I’m pretty sure someone else on this forum is manifolding a plant in the grobo (one of the ladies I think). Imo this technique would be ideal to maximize space and potential, but it’s not for everyone. I find it a lot more fun to treat your cannabis plant like a bonsai tree rather than grow evergreens.

Quick update - Nearing the end and soon to flush this InHouse slurricane IX.

Picked up some seeds as well (took advantage of the sales - multiple sources - Neptune, seedsforme ect ect) InHouseGenetics, BredBy42, OldWorld, RelentlessGenetics, Annunanki, Oni, Cannarado, curiouscultivator and assortment of freebies which are mostly regs - most will be planted outdoors in the spring - some scheduled to arrive later this week.

Soil for the next grow is ready - amended with an assortment of stuff my intention is not feed nutrients (we’ll see). Veg tent will be moved to flower tent after sterilization and a new cycle will begin with some of the new seeds.

A video will be uploaded in the near future and one more after as a recap from seed to smoke/edibles
