Ph keeps going up. I regulate it twice a day. And another question. When can I take my plastic dome off? I don't want to burn up my plants with my light at such young stage

I put gallon ziploc bag over them when they first sprouted. Just to keep moisture in. I finally got my ph to 5.9 , 150watt light.

I was gonna take the worst one out of the three. Then later take the best of the two. But take a clone of the 2nd worst plant.. Not sure if male or female. There is no sign of nute burn I don't think. I have yet to put all the nutes in required by bottle by stage of plant. I am just letting them get a taste of the nutes so they can get used to it.

the rule just about everyone on here goes by is when you get you 3rd set of true leaves then you feed till then just water and they should be nice and green no yellowing or droopy leaves that me either nute burn or light burn or the leaves got wet but if they got wet in a few days they will get dark spots to go with the yellow tips just wait on the feeding

Sounds good. Was thinking of taking half of water out of bucket and just add fresh water with no nute's. But should I still regulate ph with ph down solution?

It's a 2.5x3 foot closet space. About 9 feet tall. Closet get pretty warm. What should the closet temp read?? Light is 3 feet from plants. Changed out half the water and put fresh new water with it. Not putting nutes back in until I have to change the water next week.

u want it under 80 for best growth cut a hole in the top of the closet and hock a inline for say a 6inch or bigger that way it will suck the cool air in from your room in the closet and sucks the heat out get a fan with 300 cfm or more that will work great to drop temps just need to cut the hole at top of closet the size of fan so it blowing air up that way it will be sucking cool air in closet

stronger fan means the more cool air you sucking in so keep that in mind

you should really have you light closer than 3 feet away...at 3 feet you loose like 90% of the lights energy...with only having a 150 watt light your plants are not getting any light energy....increase your circulation and get that light a little closer

In such a small place I would consider T5's. They run cooler and produce more lumens per watt than any other light.

Look up T5's and you will see what I am saying. You will have to compare wattage output compared to lumens but you will see what I am saying.

I just bought my first T5 and think it will just do fine.

Thanks for the info! I would order te t5's but I can't afford it just yet. But another question is about spider mites. In such a small place will I have them?

yea but a plant doesn't know what a lumen is.
