Great stuff broI've been in the kitchen.
Here's what I'm cooking:

Decked it out with some white, to be completed.
Annnd this trypophobic nightmare:
View attachment 1273079
I wanted to try to address two issues; one, root clusters interfering with the water pump. And, two, (maybe) the stability of each trunk on top of the flimsy tote lids.
I could (and probably should) have just slotted these pieces in the same fashion as net pots, but I just got going and there was no stopping me.
We have life!
Just some final touches and we'll be ready to put these plant friends in their final home... hopefully it'll be a good ratio of females.... I'll just throw that in the vault for later, but I'm hoping these tubes also make for an easy time removing individuals, as it'll prevent such an entangled root mass.
Got some circulation going, not a bad climate in there considering the higher temps/RH today.

Had one bite it due to maybe the severe RH swing? Seedlings and clones... propagation... has always been a weak point of mine in the process. Gotta work on that.
Good to see you back around my man! Life do get busy. Been taking a break on the forum myself for a while. Nice to see ya growing again, and congrats on the cute pup!
Welp. It's been a while. Life got busy, as it do.
To keep me busy from being too busy to do home improvement (let alone horticulture projects), I got this adventurous little fella -

And that's about all the update that I have from the last time I posted.
Making time for this again :

Severely downsized in a garage that is sealed as if it were wrapped in cheesecloth.
Hot af in summer. Cold af in winter. Decent in the mid seasons.
I've got plans. Dreams. Etc. We'll see what I get around to. I might just cram this box full of whatever I can pull off ()
• I can build up.. and slightly out (if I remove those cabinets to the right). Depth is set at 30"max ... so.... vertical, we'd grow.
• I want to modify the hydro system... nothing extravagant, just some refinement of the LP Aero/DWC thing I've had going.
• Heating is one thing. If I frame out and insulate instead of using tents, I can get by the winter. Cooling, on the other hand... I'm picturing some sort of lung room cooled by an AC unit in the gable vent. Or maybe I'll just see it fit to dish out for a portable AC. Or maybe I'll just hang up the trimmers until the following temperate season. Sep - May ain't bad.
• DIY light fixture is still kickin'. It's the perfect footprint for 30" x 48", and I love the mental image of a vertical stack of three rooms lit by those bad boys. A man can dream.
Good to be back.
Eager to see familiar and new faces.
Thanks man! It's been a pretty great little frustrating and rewarding adventure with him and it's just getting started.Good to see you back around my man! Life do get busy. Been taking a break on the forum myself for a while. Nice to see ya growing again, and congrats on the cute pup!
They didn't have to twist my arm too hard! Was pretty happy with how well they grew as well to be honest.Thanks man! It's been a pretty great little frustrating and rewarding adventure with him and it's just getting started.
Great seeing you OGs still knocking around, even if sporadically.
I see they finally bullied you enough into letting LEDs into your garden
I love the toteTook out some undercarriage. Pruned some tops. Flipped to 12/12.
I've read topping just before flowering helps to manage height. We'll see how that goes. I've got a few more feet to work with, so it should be hunky dory either way.

Progress on the light:

- Frame 'assembled'.
- Driver wired with power cord and dimmer.
- Wago conductors connected.
- LED strips applied / half of them wired.
Should be quick work to finish it all out when I receive the extra 18awg wire tomorrow.
My dumbass mixed up the gauge of wire and I ended up wasting too much of the 18awg to finish it out.

Lots of notes on this build and I'm already eager to start my next one with more confidence and a more streamlined process.
Turned out pretty damn well even with, yeah, the PM cutting it short.How did your crop from last year turn out in the end? Iirc you were dealing with pm near the end there but were managing to hold it off.
