Your ladies are lookin their prime on spa day!! Do you always feed with a sprayer, or just tea days? Definitely doesn't look like air movement is an issue in your space lol
Funny you say air movement isn't a promb because I was planing on turning up the fans on full I find air flow is extremely important.
Agreed on the air flow, I just don't blow direct on em at high speed. I don't get too worked up anymore when the humidity rises as long as my airflow is working as set up. 32" x 32" tent, 2 fans blowing in circular motion above the tops + another blowing up through the center from the floor. I lose some space but its working so I don't frig with it.
Interesting idea with the sprayer. Wondering if it works using it with sprayer nozzle removed, won't hold air pressure as long but...may try it later with my sprayer. When I feed I don't just dump water in and run, I slow water till full and get enuff runoff to keep EC at bay (Megacrop user). Excellent idea, I have used small spray bottle to spray my LAB's soaking the top few inches where most of the goodies call home.
I use a watering can like an old fart it works well though, and holds exactly what an individual mature plant needs in my space. Airflow is huge to me as well! I run 4 oscillating fans, 2 @ canopy level, 2 at the roots and one non-oscillating in the center of my plants ground level pointed at the light. Intake kinda vortex's fresh air up and out. I'm new to tents though, so still experimenting.
You are right there about watering slowly, sounds about right to me. I usally water in intervals of 10 mins to let the soil soak up the water/feed slowly. On some days when I don't have much time I do rush it and just water normal, but think the slowly watering is good practice. I water until about 10% runoff with organics on every every other day. With Coco and synthetics I water everyday until 10% - 20% runoff. And I Never thought about removing the nossle. Will actually try it out in abit. I also like how u described your fan setup. On other topic What medium do you prefer?
Hey bro thanx. Yea I have tried setting the Temps in combination with bringing the light down abit And supper cropping. Maybe im just over doing it abit at this stage I'm starting to think they can actually stretch abit moreLooks good! They always get a little salty after hefty trims, they get over it quickly though! If you're concerned with stretch, have you tried closing the temp differential between day/night temps to minimize it?
Is that a humidifier in your flower tent?Weekly Update
What's growing on growmies!!
So! Ladies entering their week 3 of flower and Ive stopped f***ing with them for almost a week... OK Maybe just a very minor leave defol here and there, but honestly it's mostly already dead leaves or leaves that look unhealthy there was however a bigger issue at play...
Yea the lights.... Well if you can recall earlier at the start of this grow diary I said I was going to test 2 lights right? OK, but I didn't say anything about not adding more power
Ok so cool, "we bringing in reinforcements" I said to myself ....
The problem is I didn't have any spare and you know what that means right
Well there I was... looking through all the price lists..."not cool at all" ... I thought to myself. "Do they get these lm301 chips off a rock, thats under the deepest cave some where on a desserted location with no means of getting through the dense jungle by plane" cause LEDS seemed over priced on the market! ofcause that was my own thought and so since its my head, I don't care what people think LED prices should be
So anyway going through these lists I came a cross a company (not to mention yet) that build custom made LEDS, I found this interesting and procced to find out more... Long story short... I decided to get a custom made LED
Introducing the Leon200 4 Short

It came equipped with powerful LM301Bs chips, Wifi Controller and Light Timer
In combination with the lights I already had running I think this would be enough power for this grow

OH Yea! I almost forgot the ladies are doing just fine on their week 3 of flower

Yes sir, it's off tho, humidity at this time of the year for me is around 29-35%Is that a humidifier in your flower tent?
I think they more due to previous Burple LEDS but will give them some Cal mag soon. Believe it or not have not used any cal-mag in this coco run with minor to no issues. My understanding is that the ammendments in the coco provide enough cal - mag. Maybe magnesium could be a prmblem, we will see if it goes away, As opposed to when running coco with synthetics, Cal - mag is a must for me in all waterings, no question about it, it will ll take just a few days before deficiencies start to creep upLooks like a start of magnesium deficiency, when I see red petioles I sprinkle a handful of epsom salt on top of my coco b4 watering and repeat a few weeks later.
