  4. Just switched my light to 600w a cool 90f in there right now.. Tryin to get these bitches to stretch as much as I can.
    Widow is starting to smell.. yay

    so far widow is my favorite plant to grow... I just grows.. and fast!!!! and bushy...

  5. Good luck dude...They got their stretch on for sure huh?

  8. looking good bro. cant wait to see the harvest! how much u expecting this grow?
  9. Probally 6o I suppose. I'm kinda alternating from 600w to 400w. Wen I go to bed or leave I shut it down to 400w .
    Durban is so much smaller then the other 2 I did a take change today and I'm going to give them a flush then pick up on half strength nutes tomorow. But I'll flush them tonite. Durban might have some salt buldup. So ill try a quick flush first.

    I'm tink of how to redesign this closet.. need a better way for air to come in and go out.

    I still don't know if I like coco or rockwool better yet. Rockwool is less messy in a way. But the tank still gets all kinds of crap in it. So I may lean more towards coco. But so far so good in the rockwool
  10. These advanced ph down shit is brutal. its like a jel. its 100% concentrate. The bottle is like 4x heaver than others its size..

    How do i use this stuff. its so powerfull in 25gals of water it drops ph by a crazy amount.
  11. Here's some pix mango is tall as hell

    Tank change. 4am tired as fuk..
    I added a float valve to the tank so I can add water without accidently flooding my closet. Jut instaled it and trying itout.

    Just picked up a big ass bag of coco (ready grow) for my next grow.

    Stil adding water. May need to set my alarm in a few hrs to put away the ro hose. Lolol

    Anyways I'm going to go full strength nutes now. And add some kushie kush addive..

    Gonna get a cridical#47 clone and probably a super lemon haze (love that starin) soon. May only do 2 plants next time round. Not sure...

    Here's pix

    I tryed something different that seems to work.
    I curled the end of the hood around using ducting bends. Went 8in to 6in and am sucking air from right under the hood.
    It actually gets cool enough to get the plants inside the hood, on the side of the tube. With no visible heat stress. And I have a temp sensor on a leaf in the top of the canopy. Un-coverd so it should read higher. And the temps are low 90s but mostly low to high 80s. Using 600w not 400. (On 400w it stays no hotter than 81.

    Anyhoo that's my update....

    Picked up some silica almost out. Need to add nutes when they wake up and feed tonite.
    Got an RO system with 2 filters instead of just 1.. need to get the filters for it. this ones look pretty shot lol

    So I come home and upstairs smells kinda like weed but kinda like plant.. but kinda like water..

    I forgot I left the blower off for a little while so when I came home it kinda festered in the whole house.. the smell that is... lolol
