Heater?....in a 2x2? Well there's your problem right the
There's about a 15 second delay on the temp which makes it significantly less effective in such a small space but it does an okay job at keeping it at a general temp.
I have it running in my tent now with a seedling and it's working better than usual. It's staying between 28-30c.
I do the same thing. I grow outside in a shed with blankets on my tent. I use the exact same heater. Works great. Don't have the ability to do in my house. It is what it is.

Feeling like it's going to explore in here in the next 2 to 3 weeks ..... Happy as can be old OD.

UgaUgaUga the troll says

Alright. This is an idea spawned from pure testosterone, youthful exuberance, and downright competitiveness. Think the Solo Cup Challenge, upgraded.

The rules are simple:

- 1 gallon media
- 1 plant
- Must be the same plant documented from start to finish in this thread

You can use any media, any light source, any area, any genetics, seed or clone, any nutrients, any additives, PGRs, I don't care. Earn your place in history, and true trolling rights, by producing one pound (16 ounces, 440 grams) from one plant in one gallon of media.

I'll join the party once my current run is done, let's see what happens between now and then :D
Hey is this challenge still being done? I'm about to transfer 2 plants too 1 gallon pots and thought about this thread.

I'd wait at least another few weeks to transplant. Just sayin'.
Roots were growing big and healthy around whole edges of pot when I took out. There was very little soil in those original pots. About 2inches by 2inches.

I use Potassium Bicarbonate foliars. Decomposition of the Potassium bicarbonate: 2 KHCO3 → K2CO3 + CO2 + H2O. This reaction is employed to prepare high purity potassium carbonate. (+energy is released). Warning: This can burn a plant, needs to be done lightly, and I use surfactant's to buffer the reaction. In addition to the CO2 and Water molecules produced. foliage of plants afflicted with black spot, powdery mildew, brown patch and other fungal diseases is cured.

I probably need to verify that it's occurring with a CO2 meter, but I'm 99% sure that's what's happening, by looking at the growth afterwards. But the plants can only take so much of this kind of application, there's a limit. Really effective in closed spaces, and extremely simple to apply.
Can this same concept be applied to outdoor plants in conjunction with neem for a little extra defense barrier? Or would it not be effective once flowering starts considering you would discontinue use... Wondering if this is the same situation with neem

anyone still working this thread?

I'm a week or two from the flip. 3rd or 5th training session, (I forget) I've been folding the plant down on itself...

Giddy up cowboy 🤠... this will go off under the new se3000 mate like a bomb . Karrrrr booooom
I was wondering about that... actually. It's certainly a possibility. I've got 2 biggies, and I could put one under each light, I suppose, maybe.
I was thinking of bringing one of them outside, actually. And the se3000 might be better suited for some of those cup sized stuff, like maybe a half dozen of them.

I'll talk with him, I don't want to setup any false expectations, and limit myself: spec wise. I was actually thinking of using my other unit that's twice that power.

Here's the spider farmer spec, and it's certainly impressive, but it's their smaller light in this config.
380-410nm,660-665nm,730-740nm,2800-3000K,4800-5000K Par Value: 822.82umol/S Lumen:52828.78Lm±5%@AC120V 52380Lm±5%@AC240V 52249.6Lm±5%@AC277V Power draw: :300W±5% Input Voltage: AC100-277V Amp: [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] Frequency: 50/60HZ Working Temperature: -20-35℃...

If I could grow a pound of weed, in 1 gallon with only 300w, that would make me a Cannabis God, I don't think it's possible.
I think the power equal to a 1000w hps is needed for this task, so around 600 watts, of horticulture spectrum LED.
