Is there a better spot for my co2 bag? I really don't like it on the light but I lost the clip that holds it up.

I was going to put it on the floor but figuring that co2 is heavier than air so probably wouldn't go up properly.

Is there a handle or anything on the bag? You could get some rope or paracord or something similar and hang it from the tent bars at the top.

I lost that plastic handle with the hole - I was wondering do i puncture the bag to make a hole or is that gonna release some goofy stuff in my grow room?

Double sided Velcro and hang it on the side of the tent? Just trying to think of a possible solution to keep it away from your driver
thats amazing idea - i already have some on the side of my tent as for the final weeks i was going to add a supplemental uvb bar and rotate it around the tent

whatever you do you need to immediately get out of the habit of placing objects on top of your lights heat sink. Turn your light up to 100%, come back in an hour and put your bare hand on that panel and tell me how it feels :)

1/13/23 - Ladies were super perky this morning after lights on. First signs of their flowering stretch is happening. Love is in the air and low humidity

- Bag moved back to floor until more velcro arrives
- watered yesterday before lights out - AS SLOW AS I COULD, bought a watering can today going forward

Might I suggest a pump water sprayer, best decision I’ve ever made. It takes awhile to water, but it’s the most even watering I’ve worked with and get very little to no run off with my soil

Also, I’ve understood it’s always best to water shortly after lights are on. It also helps keep lower humidity levels at night, but it’s better for water and nutrient uptake and transpiration. I could be explaining it incorrectly I’m pretty stoned

how long does that take you? lil' drippy can hold 2 gallons which is about what the plants gets at once so I am kinda excited to see if i can get a better watering regime down.

I haven't had to use my dehumidifier in a couple days and it hasn't went below 45%RH, should I keep it around the 60s still right now?

1/15/23 - First Clone busted out with some roots so she got a new red cup home. Tent is filling up and using the incorrect net is going to be interesting.
growth seems good and on track with Pistils coming in long and thickening, hopefully some swelling bracts soon.
Nice knuckle before the top on my indica leaning Runtz plant #2

It takes awhile, maybe an 45 minutes for 2 gallons between 4 plants in 3 gallon containers.

You’ve got a beautiful canopy!!! You’re killing it, they look so beautiful!!

1/16/2023 - One plant is really shooting up with it's topped cola's coming in strong! So excited to see those buds develop. However they're kinda getting to the point where they're much taller than everyone else. I am 5 days into my flip - can I still do some LST bending? Most my plant's i've bent almost every branch already to minimize stressing it out during this time - will it be okay?

Catgrass has been planted for the kitties

1/17/23 - Cat grass has already sprouted, wondering how that's gonna turn out. Started my first couple bends on my incorrectly sized net. Smell is getting amazing already, I can't wait for these ladies to start really stinkin'
