Greenhouse is up quick video of everything, sorry had to split it up due to size. Just ordered a couple of small fans to mount to keep upper air circulation going and to help exhaust any humidity. Thermometer and humidity reader also ordered, but soil reader won’t be in until next week sadly.

Let me know if you have any suggestion of what I should do for the lead issues or if I’m stressing over nothing

Todays a good day! Girl is looking beautiful and I’m appreciating the slow Sativa growth. This is going to be some crystaly bud when it’s done. I’m thinking 8 more weeks but obviously still too soon to tell. I did some measurements and I may be able to fit 6 plants outdoor with proper netting and training in the greenhouse. I may buy a second one and just do 3 and 3, but still deciding!

Saturday update:

Main cola is starting to fill in and a stem rub smells amazing, like sweet candy with a slight hint of mint. Been having some humidity issues and will get some more tarp for the ground to help moisture from the ground and also to help get light levels darker at night.

Careful with electricity outside lol and you don't need that white fan. Whats the back coverd up for?
Lol I know it’s only temporary until the solar panel fans I ordered are imported.

The two small fans to blow over the plant and the white one oscillates on the plant to help keep any unwanted bugs flying on it.

The back is covered up to keep any of my inside lights leaking into the greenhouse during the nighttime. Sadly there’s still a small small light coming through, so I’m getting a thicker and darker tarp later today!

Sunday update:

Watered this morning took 1.5 gallons with more BBloomz. Buds are filling and the crystals are just exploding everyday! I HAVE to figure out how keep this girl and her genetics and hoping I can breed this with another strain. Going to do a lot of research but may take a future clone with c-silver spray to get some seeds.

Temp: 80
RH: 58%

Started LST the clone, I wanted to get an earlier start with this one then I was able to on the main girl.

Close ups on some bud sites and close up of LST for the next run of her. I will be taking a couple of clones off this one for a future mother.

New LED light comes in, nothing too crazy just something to keep the lil one growing until I’m ready to keep her outside to flower.

Day 29 Flower:

Temp: 80
RH: 59%

Did a final defoliation of the plant and is getting much better air flow. Let me know your thoughts on the progress. Today marks the beginning of 5th week of flower and I’m thinking possibly 4-5 more weeks (fingers crossed)

So I got a new LED light that covers enough for one big plant or a couple small ones in veg.

Can anyone help me out in recommendations on how far I should keep these from my plants? I’m new to LED so I am a little worried.

My intentions is to veg 24/7 lights and LST my clone until I feel she’s ready. But I also want to throw the one in flower for a couple of hours a day when the sun sets over the house and I lose the main sunlight.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance

I’ve got it placed 20” away from the top of the plant. Unfortunately I don’t have a light meter right now but getting one soon. Is this too far, too close? My plant in flower is around 4 feet tall so want to make sure if I’ll have to move the light up or down when I put that in there

Put the big girl under the new light. It’s about 14” from the tallest cola, hoping it’s not too close. So far I’m liking this little light, it runs cool and very bright but there isn’t an adjustable dimmer, but hey for $50 I can’t be too dissatisfied. I’ll only have the light on until the sun reaches over my wall for the 6 hours it’s available and then turn it on for the other 6.

I really think this will help out with the last weeks of flowering getting an extra boost of light

Thanks for the reply!!

Yeah I grew indoors for 5 years but that was over a decade ago. I recently moved to Mexico so I’m slowly getting things back to growing and my first time outdoors.

I have a constant 12/12 light cycle outdoors so I try and take advantage as much as I can. The greenhouse is only temporary until the rain season is over with.

I do plan to move everything back indoors but I have to import everything in and costs are a little higher than I’d like so I’m buying it in pieces, but I’ll get there.

I mainly got the light to help grow for future veg and throw em all outdoors after 4 weeks to start flower, but need my tent and exhaust to arrive.

I’ve been back and forth all week regarding what I want my next grow to be. I was going to go with Northern Lights and Power Plant only because I’ve grown those strains in the past. I’ve decided against it and decided with a flavor variety pack and definitely excited!

Seed source:
MSNL

Strains:
Zkittles
Blueberry widow
Pineapple Kush

I just ordered them and will be hopefully starting the next grow soon.

Ordered another one of these LED lights. I’ve moved this one out of the greenhouse and I converted an indoor/outdoor storage space that I will use to continue flowering in here to contain humidity levels better.

I will use the LED for the times the sun isn’t there and move it outside to the sun when it is available.

I will use the second light for the greenhouse to keep the plants to veg 24/7 since the humidity is higher in there.

The clone is responding well to her LST, and I can’t wait to show her off when she’s completely done.

New room seems to be working out well, I just need to get a dehumidifier to keep the humidity a little lower. At night it got to 70% and struggling to get it under 60%. Some more close ups of the buds forming

Update:
Greenhouse is now the new veg room since it can hold high humidity very well day and night.

Dehumidifier will arrive today and will put that in the flowering room to help keep the RH constant.

Since the flower room is big enough to act as a tent, I am going to just buy the things I need to convert the room itself versus buying a separate tent.

I’ve decided on the 2022 Mara Hydro TS 3000 and AC infinity exhaust and filter. With these plus the dehumidifier I think I’ll be ok for the next grow to flower 4-6 medium sized plants in my area.

Let me know if your thoughts if I’m on the right track, or if I should be looking at something else.

Put together the flowering room, made my own 5x3x8 for around $45 for all of the tools and materials. I can now get my humidity down to 55, and slowly going down the more the dehumidifier runs.

Trust me this isn’t my final room, I will be ordering reflective Mylar, and will be ordering the new LED middle of this month. But hey, for a quick put together, I’m pretty happy with it.

The clone is progressing beautifully in the high humidity greenhouse and waiting for it to grow a little more before I do the next LST tie down.

I fed the plant just water this feeding and I will be switching to chaching for the rest of the flowering.
