Hi guys ..when i was putting up the 3 way duct in flower room when i turned the fan on it blew the air into the veg room so i had to put a divider in so it wouldnt do it .. came up a treat..just used a piece of corrugated iron hammered it out abit then used jb weld to glue it in there..works great..saved me putting another hole in ceiling and running both rooms singular View attachment 1016571 View attachment 1016573
This is reminding me of Dr. Evil's lair so far

Hi guys..set up the humidifier last night and is working great but i dont know wheres the best spot to put the sensor .i put it to the right at same height the seedlings would b..im getting different readings in humidity..you can see in pic where i have hygrometer thats reading 34% whereas the inkbirds 51% i have another hygrometer hanging off the cmh above and thats on 53% ...question ....is it because the hygrometer is directly under the light the reason its reading less...both hygrometers read same there.....havnt tried the inkbird there but i dont think it should b positioned directly under light......last pic other hygrometer 80 odd cms above t5 light..pics

Been sitting chillin in the room seeing how the enviroment works the last couple hrs..a little bit uncomfortable lol crouching and standing from time to time..i noticed the temps between the 2 hygrometer is .2 deg over 2hrs and watching the inkbird fluctuate between 51% to 61% with no fan going..i raised the light by an inch and turned fans on and the humidity under light went from 34% to 41% and staying there and the humidity stopped fluctuating and now stays pretty much on 56% on the inkbird .ive changed the setting to 60% with hd setting on 5% variation..
Its pretty cool setting up a room.i think im gonna like this..nxt step is working out when the extraction should b coming on...

SO SO FAR WHICH method is easier, soil or coir in terms of seedling growth based on your soiled background? What other evil tricks are coming?

Its day 8 i think 😃 and decided to give the eldest one its first feed of canna classic vega mixed 10ml into 2.5 litres ppm was 1200 lol so i diluted it down till it read between 3-400ppm on the truncheon and phd to 6.2 using rainwater ..ended up with 7.5 litres lol ..that was fun.so now i got to get some 1ml sryinges so i can measure smaller amounts and not wasting the nutes.3 more seedlings came up on the 7th which are bagseed and have grown it 4yr ago.have 6-7 homegrown quick critical on the way up im not sure what its crossed over either blue cheese or sunset sherbet or even its self got like 18 seeds off the plant so hopefully they arnt hermies.never found any nanners but..oh and a critical 2.0 which could b over blue cheese and sunset again..so be interesting what they come out like..no pics just updating so yous know whats happening..

Was a pita at first..didnt know what the heck i was doing..its quite overwhelming at the start.i havnt had the extraction fan on much .just plugging it in every now and then for 1 minute.the cmh light gonna b different.i will b plugging the little reptile light into the inkbird temp and cool and setting the temp for day time ..i can leave it on overnite .once it gets warmer i will change out the 50watt to a 25 watt..i will have to sit in there to workout how often the extraction fan comes on .will put that on a timer i reckon and have it coming on say once every half hr when lights are off.or plug it into the inkbird cool socket but it wont come on when lights are off.its the hardest thing ive got to work out.ive been thinking more on this than what i have to do with growing the plants lol..
