that’s about as good as it’s gonna get I’m happy with it for what stage I’m at. Too early for the trellis??? There’s about 2 inches of hydro tons under block too should work what do you think??

What is the red containers for? You would want to have air to by pass through bottom of the rockwools. you also need to make sure that the rockwool doesn't sit in pile of water other whys the salt buildup isn't going to drain away

like @PK1 said, ideally you would just have the rockwool blocks sitting on a grate of some type so that air can pass all around the cube, including underneath it. having them in those buckets will restrict growth something fierce as the plants grow as well. not a whole lot of rootspace in there and the beauty of the cubes is the fact that they'll air prune if allowed open air access.

Ok pulled them out and put on trays thanks for the input idk what I was thinking. But tonight I’ve seen a weird humidity change I’ve had to run humidifier at night just trying to keep a steady vpd everyday. Tonight the humidity has almost been uncontrollable turned off humidifier and it’s still going up. Does. This mean I’ve hit the sweet spot plants are perspiring correctly now ? The lights are off but it’s just changed from what it has been at around this time @PK1 @tobh

yeah, you've hit the spot. about 30 minutes to an hour after lights out, the plants will dump a shit ton of moisture into the air. if you're struggling to keep the RH down now, you'll need to get a dehumidifier. worthwhile investment. don't skimp on a small cheap one. drop a few hundred bucks and go bigger than you think you need, preferably one with an auto drain on it. i run a 70 pint personally, supposedly rated for 1400 sqft (my house is 900sqft in total living area), and it barely manages to keep things kosher mid flower.

How big do you think these get before this 4”block isn’t big enough anymore. I will go with a growdan block next time but the 1” cube won’t go down any further in the 4” and it’s starting to spilt apart is this a bad thing should i just switch to flower now so they don’t completely overgrown the block @PK1 @tobh

Ive got 4 plants, 2 different Strains and 5 weeks old. Started from seed in 1" cube Transplanted into 4" cube. I am feeding 3 times a day 100ml shots. 2 hours after light comes on, mid day, and 2 hours before light shuts off. 18hr light cycle Growers choice ROIe720 that i started out at 25% and have moved it up 35% at height of 36 inches above top of plants. Using full line Athena Blended nutrients. IPM w/ stack drench twice a week during dark times.
Nutrient solution RO water EC 1.6 Temp 68F. Ph 5.6
Tent Temp 76-78F 45% humidity. Good airflow Battling humidity.
No co2 but have fresh outside air
The Plants have weird wrinkles on leaves and plants are droopy some times and seem to have slowed to a crawl in Growth I wonder if I am over watering or under watering?? By 3rd feed 10% run off is achieved. I also topped one plant to experiment Maybe too early. i also weigh before feed usually some where around 120 grams betwwen feeds and 220 grams after each feed of 100 ml They seem to be drinking between feeds. Run off Ec is 3.0- 3.3 after 3rd feed. View attachment 1203350 View attachment 1203351 View attachment 1203352 View attachment 1203353 View attachment 1203354 View attachment 1203355

@PK1 @tobh @Dirtbag should I trimming some of this now the lower parts are droopy not getting much light down low I have the roie720 set at 50% and 36” seems to be good for me right now. They are getting pretty crowded too branched running into each other. Also worried about overground these block without slabs when should I flower them so I don’t lose the whole run ?

if roots are visible at the bottom of the 4"rockwool than i would put them on a slab. you can also give it a haircut by removing old damaged or bad leaves.

female hairlines are white and i don't see any balls forming. It just seems like a leave growth. If its been under 18 hours light and they are not auto's than you wouldn't know the sex until the light cycle is changed.

Didn’t panic and drown them stuck with my 300ml water just like I have been and 3 came back one is still droopy what are the odds of it coming back maybe shock idk . I’m really surprised they didn’t up and fall over the blocks were so dry rookie mistake @PK1 @tobh
