Regarding your temps and RH, you would be much better off with a temp around 75 and your RH 55% - 65%

Your VPD is currently way off.

Yea it's been tough trying to keep them up, I've lowered the exhaust fan and I'm only going to run the pole fan during the day. Im currently sitting at 72* and 40% RH. Do you have any recommendations to keep the heat up during cold snaps? It's just snowed 12" and is in the 30s lol (Colorado has a mind of its own) , so I preemptively moved the tent inside until garage Temps level out.

Turn off the exhaust fan, get some co2 source, and get a heater if you want to get your temps up. Also you reeeeally need to get that humidity way up. You’re over stressing the plants and they are probably barely drinking.

Also if you need some vpd charts or have questions check out my guide www.pulsegrow.com/vpd

I added another humidifier temporarily, I'm going to transplant them this afternoon, they have out grown their cups. Is a seedling mat typically enough to raise the temp a handful of degree? Any recommendations you have are welcome lol!

I transplanted the ladies in solo cups into 3g fabric pots and FFHF. All 3 looked fairly healthy! Adding the other humidifier definitely helped, I woke up to a temp of 68 and 55% Rh. The light is 18" and on 100%. Is now a good time to top the 1.5 week old dosidos with some worm castings?

Here is 1 more.

One thing you can also do to raise the temps is raise the plants, since hot air rises, the top of the tent will tend to be warmer than the bottom. Put a little table in there and raise everything up closer to the top.

Happy Friday growers! We'll today was Linda's (dosidos) first feeding day. I gave her about 1/3 the recommended amount of the Fox Farm nutes and was thinking about stepping it up after 1 more feeding. She took about a third of a gallon. In addition I gave her a little haircut. I topped her using a razor knife. The other girls also seem to be pretty happy at the moment. I will more than likely do the same to the other 3 when feeding is due. I've been able to maintain 70-74* and 53-57% RH. Let me know what you think!

You should try to get heat from another source then the lights and turn them down .
If your at 100% now what are you going to do for flower?
In veg with a decent LED few need or offer enough to drive the light need over 50-70% .
Just my own experience ..
I have seen some who use reptile heaters that run from a light socket .

It was time time feed Gina(WC). I gave her the same recipe as I gave the dosidos at 1/3 recommended. She took about a little under a half gallon. While she was soaking in some nutes, I gave her a little haircut! Everything seems to be going fairly smooth at the moment 🤞🏼

Good morning everyone! Quick update and I ran into my first "issue". So all 4 of the girls have been topped,except 1 skunk #1. I fimmed her just to play around and test results. I also did some LST on the Dosidos and the WC, the wedding cake was starting to become a little unruly lol! Now on to the issue.... both of the Skunks have some yellowed tips and some downward turned leaves. My temp and humidity have been fairly consistent around 70* and 55%RH. I did feed all of them 1/3 the recommended amount of the FF nutes. I have been leaving my water out for 24 hours to evaporate the chlorine and it comes out around 7 ph. Im thinking it might have been a little early for me to give them nutes(they seem like slower feeders) or too much light? Let me know what you think!

I ordered and installed 1 more VS1000 and installed it so I could space the ladies out. The leaf curling was partially due to the tent sucking in and forcing the leaves down. I dialed both of the lights down to 50% for the first day to let them get used to the additional light. Both the WC and the dosidos are taking to the LST very well! I am having issues coming up with a solution on what to do with the Skunks. Despite topping and fimming they seem to still be getting taller just bushier. Any one have any tips on how to LST a plant like these? It's the back 2 plants. Thanks!

Well I had a mishap... one of the little 6" fans fell onto one of the Skunks and broke a limb almost off and broke a couple of fan leaf stems. But everything considered I believe everything else is going to plan ish. I've fed all of the girls their first round of cal mag and water and I have done LST on of them. Any advice on steps to take after a plant gets a flying elbow from something? Thanks!!

Good morning fellow growers! Just a quick update: all of the ladies are doing extremely well considering my unplanned assassination attempts lol! When rearranging the cabling to keep organized I accidentally hit the always on switch on the timer. They were on for about 24 hours. I immediately dropped the light intensity to 75% and raised the light about 6" to give them a chance to recover. Now about 3 days later it looks like we're back on track. I'm leaving for a business trip this week and plan on flipping them next Sunday when I get back, hopefully that will be enough time for them to fully recover and we can start flowering as stress free as possible. Have a good Sunday everyone!

Well I came back from a business trip and the ladies were thirsty. Despite my wife's brown thumb they have recovered nicely! I did some light trimming to make air circulate a little more freely. They seem like they are telling me they are ready to flower! I went to 16/8 for 2 nights, am I ok to just flip 12/12? Let me know what you think?
