Thanks for the great idea man. I cut the adjustable pole down to like 6 inches on mine, and used ratchet hangers to hang it, there will be another hanger on the fan to pull it back at like a 45 so this one fan will blow across the entire tent. Fan is off the pole at the moment for cleaning.

Yep haha I cut down 2 of the expansion poles, I try to keep them full length if I can so I can lower the fan down more or raise it up to meet plant heights, It’s ghetto but it works lol

I used the holes from the screws that held the feet poles and put zip ties through them in a loop, then another set of zip ties through that and straight to that pole above your mount, saves you the ratchet straps and helps stop the fan from pushing itself when oscillating

Edit, saw you’re going to ratchet it back as well that should stop the swinging when it’s blowing

Well I took off a snip today, quick trim and is now drying on top of the toaster oven now, this girl flipped to 12/12 on 12/3/2022 she’s got some weeks on her haha, held off till today to test and she hasent had water in 3 days and is drooping pretty good so I think I planned accordingly for a chop she’s only had water the past week and a half prior to that we’ll see how it goes if she’s good she comes down today

Yeah she’s ready 😂

Not bad for a toaster oven top dry defenitly got me a hall of a buzz off some fresh bud it’s time for the chop

Gunna just pop off each top and hang in a cardboard box each on a wire , couple small holes for air and let the exhaust from the 4x8 give it some air flow the back room is cold about 60f (74f inside the 4x8 today, temp is 5f and windchill is -18 so not really ideal temps for… anything lol

So pre chop photos plus my 50PT dehu dry box all ready to go, wet trim is fan leaves only

Get/ put a cheap meter in box so you know if you have enough air flow.
Helps to monitor RH.
Brutal here today also. Hope you stayed warm. I unloaded 47k of slate in a semi heated Lull/telehandler.

I use these cheap meters that I use in my curing jars cut a hole to pop it in and out and big enough to stick my hand through to check stem snap progress lol

I know it’s a solo plant thread but I may bring the smaller 2 girls over from the 4x8 to finish off so the bigger plants in there can spread out a bit

Still cheating, 2 plants in the 4x4 just got their waterings

They got some light stress from this Phlizon even at 50% at 18” lol that’s ok though lesson learned just gotta get them across the finish line 😁

Had to tie one of the buds up she was laying on the other plant 😂

They just had a foliar spray of peroxide and water for some of the PM I saw around, it’s attack time lol I won’t spray them with anything else this late, I Spray, leave lights on minimum until mostly dry then start to ramp the light back up once no visible water is in top of any leaves or buds

They will survive, might have some loss at the end but no biggie just glad I had a separate tent to quarantine them, too bad it’s too late to hit them with some colloidal silver on a few branches

Another peroxide bath and defenitly getting worse with the light burn, switched up raised the light up to max height probably 35” lol, and put up to 60% we’ll see how they like that


Both where monstercrop clones off different plants but I believe they where the same strain from how the plants developed as well as bud and node structure

Surprised how powerful this light is @PhlizonGrowLight these plants where at 80% under a mars hydro FC-E8000 in the 4x8 and same distance just a week ago I figured 50% at 24” would be equivalent apparently not lol

Bravo on a crazy light can’t sit till the next run with this light now that I know what she can do 😏

Had PM the last couple of runs, time before was hit the hardest, last run just two branches, one on each plant, think it was just starting to kick off as I chopped. Don' t know what's going on, but PM is becoming a real problem with more than a few growers around the world.

I’m hoping my revamp will help, lung room will be humidity and temp controlled, it’ll house my family’s 4x8 vegetable tent as well that will vent externally, 2 inlet inline fans a 6” and an 8” will push air into the 4x4 and 4x8 cannabis tents respectively, those will then exhaust from carbon filtered exhausts into a 3rd room about 3x the size of the inlet room

After this run all rooms will be freshly carpeted, lung room will hopefully be tiled to avoid any contaminants with a 4500 sq ft dehu and I am working on finding an appropriate humidifier I have Frostette from @Trustfall as well as some other nice genetics to try and will give a perpetual harvest a shot and possibly a breeding trial since I got my colloidal sliver and will have 3 tents to work with

Hope the hardware updates sort the problem for you, as PM in the last week of flower is crushing. 😡

Yeah past 2 runs have had losses myself, quite frustrating luckily 3 runs ago produced enough to keep me going, the 4x8 looks like it’ll be salvageable so far as far as smokeable, I’m on as long as I dont see anything under the microscope when I break open the buds, PM looks quite different than trichs lol, if the 4x4 plants stay as they are they should be good as well if I keep up on the peroxide regimen, it seems to help for sure. I can say if doing peroxide and water use either distilled or RO water, exactly 3 parts water to 1 part 3% peroxide, spray for 3 days twice daily (soaked buds and all top and bottom and stems I used a full spray bottle per 2 fair sized plants) lights minimum or off with a lantern tent in the tent like I do lol, then main lights off with lantern only, I leave fans off for 5 minutes then fans on, wait 15 minutes till dry, light back on to minimum, once dry lights back up, I did that then every 3 days I soak down again, seems to be helping a lot especially in the 4x8 hopefully it’ll push them through to then end.

By no means do I promote it as a fix for PM but for me it seems to help and slow from the spread into the buds and hopefully help control any spread
