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..
Yeah I totally underestimated how much DIY would be involved to get my grow tent environment dialed in. Kind of no way to do it other than just chug through though.

You have changed since 4 yrs ago bro..what made you change from 60-6.3..did you change your nutes regime and noticed the new nutes prefer lower ph?

I was using urine milk and worm tea at that time now I’m using Reiziger n cyco nutes I remember reading on here somewhere that 5.2 to 5.8 In the first 2/3 growing then slightly raise it as the end comes near it’s been working for me .

Day 15 for the first born and .family photo...Hi guys..been feeding her between 300-400 ppms and id like to ask when do i start upping the ppms..shes not showing any signs that i need to up them atm..should i just carry on what im doing ?

Wish the others were same age as i want to put her under the cmh right now.. im glad though this is just a practice run till i have better genetics and figuring out what works best in this indoor enviroment.pretty much got the seedling raising ,room temp humidity and watering down pat..time for the eldest drink..shes a little droopy ..pic

Cheers Od..gave her the drink..she took more than i thought she would take.runoff ppm was 700-750 .that seems a little high? I will give her plain water nxt feed and see if that brings it down..ive read your spose to feed every watering.im just doing what i think i should b doing lol but might not b right.sort of just winging it ha

Is this right..the oldest plant still had moisture but if i dont water a little more frequently is this the reason why the runoff is a little high (salt buildup?).or is that just telling me shes not taking up the nutrients im giving her ? 3-400 ppm runoff 7-750 ph 5.8 ..

Yes I think your right a good flush with ph correct if you in coco perlite use cal mag normal rates .
