Its been a couple weeks since my last update, and things are moving along nicely. The tent is filling out and I’m still running the FD8000 on 18/6. It took me a little while to get my VPD locked in now that I’m in the 4 x 4 tent. The tent is running a little warm for my liking so I made a DIY swamp cooler (pics below) to cool the tent down but also add some humidity. Since adding the cooler I’ve dropped around 10° in the tent and humidity is up roughly 10%. So far it’s working really well. Still training pretty aggressively and in a couple weeks will take some clones, defoliate and flip to 12/12. Those smaller plants in the front will be pulled out and put into my permanent veg room, and flowered later. Im pulling High 400s to low 500s ppfd across the canopy. I have the FD800 pretty low and am running it at 30% to keep the heat in check. This light is a beast. Will update again in a couple of weeks.

interesting idea! im running a 4inch ductpipe from the ac to the flower room and was thinking of 1st putting it through my resavor so it cools that down and allow the air from there to by pass to the room. Good to know that it helps with humidity.

No question running an AC would be easier, but I have nowhere to vent my AC unit where I have the tent. This was a simple solution that appears to be helping both my temp and humidity.

My Co2 fluctuates a ton. Everything else appears to be pretty dialed in. Open to comments and feedback!

It’s been a couple weeks since my last update and we’ve started making some real progress. I had to overcome a mag deficiency, which increasing my epsom took care of. I moved the Cherry Cream Pie, SFV OG, Gelato 33, Tropicanna Bannana, Motor Breath 15 and a small clone of Grape Cream Cake to my veg room. My tent has two OG Kush, Bubba Kush, Grape Cream Cake, Runtz and a Grape Gas. Just flipped to 12/12 today. These @PhlizonGrowLights are no joke! I’m keeping them close to the canopy and running reduced power to keep the temps down. It’s still pretty warm here. PPFD is running around 525 across the canopy. VPD is sticking pretty close to 1.2.

Too much going on! I plan to scale this back to my fav 4/5 strains to run in rotation. I plan to keep just one of the fruity/grape/cherry strains. I personally prefer skunky diesel strains. If I could only get @Trustfall to quit posting about all the f’n strains he has available, my life would be less complicated 😂.

Honestly have no idea how far along those outside plants are. One is a clone and the other is from seed. The clone gets a bit more shade in the afternoon and is about two weeks ahead. Those pics are from the clone.

Forgot to mention I added an exhale bag to my tent last week. Im hoping to have the same experience @dreamnfox had. Yes, I know it shouldn’t work in a tent. Worse case scenario I'm out $30

Just when I thought everything was going great, I find these little bastards. Anyone know what I’m dealing with here? Thirps? Russett Mites? White Flies?

What’s the best course of safe eradication? I appreciate everyone’s help in advance!

I’m not even one week in the flower and want to get this corrected ASAP.

Damn them 😡 but at least you have spotted. I don't believe they are thrips or white flies. Unfortunately I can only guess and say they are aphids. No doubt time to double up on any IPM. Maybe predatory for exterior like praying mantis and ladybugs, then hit em in the soil with some shiz

I think you are right @PerfecTrader. I meant to add aphids in my post above but missed it. I just ordered some trifecta crop control, that appears to be an effective treatment. If anyone else has some suggestions please let me know!

Pretty sure that stuff is very legit. Seems the best of the best use and/or vouch for it

@CannaGranny I believe trifecta is one of your preferred pest control solutions. Any suggestions in terms of application?
Each ailment has a different protocol. Trifecta has a home page that lays out specific directions for each problem. Following that protocol insures success. I use it exclusively for powdery mildew and I use it in conjunction with cold pressed orange oil for the control of mites.

@Nesta028 what about lady bugs? I've read they straight go to town on aphids. They are cheap and can get fast local and/or Amazon. Stakes are for sure high enough to come at em wolvy berzerk style from multiple angles.

I looked at ordering lady bugs last night. I still might. Seems to be mixed opinions on using them. The Trifecta should be here in a couple days. Going to fend them off until then.
You are right on the plus and minus of the lady bugs. Everything matters all the way down to the time of day you turn them loose. Most say in the dark. I also use a cold compressed orange oil in my tents. They hate that stuff. I wipe down the floor and spray the corners with it before every grow. Part of the success with the Trifecta is to use it exactly the way it is called for and drench the leaves top and bottom. I also lightly sprayed the top of my soil. Do this at night, just prior to lights out.
How severe is your infestation?
Also when the grow is finished get rid of the dirt and if you are using cloth bags replace or wash them.

Thank you @CannaGranny! The infestation seems to be minor at this point. I am using fabric pots so will have to figure that out before next grow. I was considering going back to plastic pot. Might do a side by side comparison between fabric and plastic.
