Ok I managed to get the humidity up to 44% by increasing the air intake from outdoors. I'm sure I'll have to get a mister/fogger when the dry winter weather comes in at some point. The issue I'm concerned about is the temperate inside the 4x4 tents. It running around 82-83 degrees with the lights on. I have sun system 630 cmh but I'm only running one side so it's only a 315 running in each tent. I am trying to avoid pumping AC into each tent until I start flower. Right now I'm pulling 206cfm in each tent out to exhaust. I mulched yesterday and I watered until there was just barely any runoff. I also mulched Yesterday. The soil is still nice and moist. In the room my tents are in the humidity is 45% and the temperature is 77degrees. Should I be worried or should I just relax and let it ride. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Your soil mix sound realy good and your temps may be a little high but nothing to worry about. I had to swop out my 600w hps for 2 1200w leds last week because my temps were over 100f but there in the 70s now. Your grows looking good pal keep up the good work.......Happy farming

Well I installed a portable air conditioner. I just hooked it to the intake duct. I thought my RH would go down but it went up and I got control of the temperature in both tents. Now temps run between 75-77 degrees and humidity is +/- 50%. I'm still pulling around 200cfm out of each tent individually. I think I can relax now.

On another note the Jawa Pie is taking off! 3 of the five are on there third node already. A few of the Holy Roller are close behind and two of the Hit Girls are thriving as well. It's been two weeks since I started my 24 hour soak. Below are pictures of the fastest of each strain so far. I don't know if this means anything at this point but it's good to see happy plants anyway. I just hope I can determine the males from females before I flip them. Seedlings are diggin it on top of the ten as well. Anyways looking good for 25 days from seed :)

There is alot of info out there and alot of it contradicts its self it can become very confusing. I found if you find something that works for you stick to it. And then when you have a few grows under your belt and know your process then try to inprove. Your aim is to get your plant through ther cycle happily once you master that everything else will fall into place. I myself am still learning from people on here there are some realy good growers. And alot of realy friendly and helpful people on here but like i said keep up the good work.

That looks awesome! I only hope my girls look that lush and healthy! Do you usually run the same strain at one time or do you mix match at all? I'm all about quality and variety so that's why I plan on the 2 flower tents and one veg so I can produce more variety faster. Being my first run I'm not sure how certain strains will develop. So I plan on doing one strain per tent per cycle. Your plants look very happy

End of week one in veg. I've got both bulbs running in each 630 and they are loving that CMH. I saw a big difference when I fired up the other side of each light. I have a few weak plants but I'm going to let it play out and see what happens. I'm not sure if a couple will make it due to some deformities but that was expected. I've got the environment dialed in so things are looking great. I received my compost tea brewer, so I'll be ready in week three to feed them their first compost tea. I've got the rarest MTF pheno in circulation on deck. MTF Cherry I sourced from MTF Jeff of AKbuiltseeds. Good things are developing.

I've been looking at autos myself. I have Skywalker I put caked up from Mephisto Genetics which I fell in love with after trying some from a local grower. I attached a picture of akbuiltseeds Himilayas strain. This was grown outside it looks amazing. MTF Jeff at akbuiltseeds is one of two guys that hold the true legendary MTF strain. He is writing a book about the history of Matanuska Thinderfuck. It's a legend with a crazy story behind the strain and still to this day is the best I've ever had. There is a lot of BS and people that think they have MTF which I would seriously doubt by as most of the people that have it went underground in the early 90's. You can see him on the Adam Dunn show and mentioned in high times articles. If you are looking at autos I would check these guys out. I myself am addicted to saving genetics. I have to buy everything I see that is a limited addition lol. The picture is Himilayas strain.

New growth tips practically overnight! I pulled one of the holy rollers, it look like it was choking itself to death at the first node do to a deformity. I have to say out of the three strains I'm running the Jawa Pie already has a distinct smell to it.Almost a fruity smell. The other two don't have any smell to them yet.

I'm making 2.5 gallons of a compost tea concoction to help the living soil progress. I'll water at a 1:1 ratio. My ingredients for 2.5 gallons of tea were:

1/2 cup EWC
2 cups Susitna Compost
1/2 tsp Microbe inoculated #1
1/2 cup bountea Bioactivator
1/2 cup Grokashi
2oz fish hydrolysate powder
1/2 cup Life cube (super soil mix)

I'm getting a microscope to learn to check for the microbe life as well as a dissolved o2 meter. This is another first so it will be a learning experience.

from seed they are from sensi seeds. I only ever ran clones befor these i got 10 and 9 popped so not that bad. Clonex and root riot plugs you cant go wrong always had good results with them. Iv took 2 clones from the purple bud to mother for next year (
