Thanks, yeah I had them under 315W CMH from Day 1. Ive only topped one time and that was like a week and half ago now... They have done a good job of growing naturally bushy on their own without any "tranining," from me, as of yet... I do hope to start putting this net to use and figuring out the best way to use it

No... What is that?

I am pretty sure I am going to flip them this weekend though. I think they are ready.

Just debating whether or not to clean them up first

Foliar feed is a means of feeding the plant with a spray of nutrients or supplements, just like how you might spray for pests and disease.

So far the only problem I have with CMH vs. LED would be the amount of heat the bulbs produce. This is made worse by the fact that the exhaust fan that the sales guy sold me at the Hydro Store doesnt perform up to par for the Tent size and my Light type that he sold me but I will 100% remedy this situation for my next Grow. I will be getting a much much better exhaust fan as long as this Grow isnt a complete failure. At this point I've invested about 1,000$-1,200$ on this Grow so I am really going to be sad if I dont get a decent yield and I am being very cautious about putting any more money into this hobby yet.
I would order the infinity cloud 9 inline or you will regret the noise next to your bed .
I have 4" infinity I use in my 3x3 and I use the 6" infinity in my 5x5 . I do run led though so the 6" might be ideal for you.

Ahh Gotcha, thank you. No, I have not done this.

Well I am 31 days into the Grow and my fan makes next to no noise at all. But it is also too small. I will need a larger one next round. But I also run an intake portable AC which makes noise too. I am a heavy sleeper lol

Yeah, what he said. Its a quick way to feed a plants leaves but not flowers. I use a very light epsom salt solution mist, magnesium sulfate, just before flower as a booster.

Nah, it is a 4'' RUCK. Luckily I do not have anything Vivosun except my Net and I hate the fuck out of that thing. I really am thinking about spending my entire day off tomorrow either making a trellis out of Bamboo or going to some different stores and seeing if they have anything with smaller squares, these 6''x6'' seem too big but I could be wrong, the plants do seem to be growing into it.

I made my own it’s really easy. Small pieces of wood or pvc trim work good. I made my squares 3.5 inches and used eye screws for my pvc and I can string my net myself. Make sure you use something that won’t cut your plants. I used #18 masonry string for the net. Going to be installing that this next week and I’ll show ya how it turned out. When I’m done I can just cut it off easy peezy!!

Pvc trim with eye screws for a home made scrog

Neat.

I will figure something out for my next grow. I will make do with this Vivosun net for this run.

I am working on my ladies now. Going to trim off any real thin/low branches and then give them a good watering.

Tonight they will go to 12/12 light cycle... 12pm-12am seems to work best for me.

Does your electric company charge more for electricity during peak time? I run my flower room from 2am to 2pm to save money.

They do. Maybe I will flip it to Midnight- Noon for cost savings and temperature control. It is already getting up to 100 here in Arizona.

Good idea. I have just been a little concerned about light leaks if I have my dark period during the day time.

I did not that was a thing!! Peak hours for electricity!?!? I planned on flipping to flower at 2 am to 2pm anyway so I will benefit some from doing it during night hours.

Depending on where you live and who your energy company is. I have peak hours and smart days. They send you a text 24 hours in advance informing you the smart day is coming (always on the hottest days of the year) they really jack up the price on smart days during peak hours, they are limited to 15 smart days a year.

Ive finalized on an 8pm-8am light on cycle... This will require me to do all my work in the evening but will save me on energy costs for sure. The days I work I will have the option to water after I get home or in the morning before work, so that is nice.

So lights go off tonight at 10pm as scheduled... then will stay off until 8pm tomorrow. 22 hours of darkness heading into Flowering wont do any harm right?
