    What am i doing wrong?

    outdoor is a different ballgame, the lights and fans are second to none 🙂 indoor i tend to mess heavily with my plants all along training etc but second week of flower it goes into bud mode. suppose its diffeent timing same technique, i shave them legs before they hit the scrog

    Filter and Air-cooled hood setup

    I'm the opposite. Fan pulls from lights pushes through filter outside of tent Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

    Simpler than that I doubt you will get. Easy and reliable Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

    What am i doing wrong?

    Second week may be a bit too rigid but I tuck and weave my new growth almost daily in week 1.should slow down after week 2 at least. I'm not a fan(pardon the pun) of deflation in flower Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

    My Intro

    Bare in mind. 2x 400w digitals will run you about 5k best case. Add Lamps, hangers and reflectors and your are very close if not at gavita pricing. It's actually not that far a stretch. I tend to get a little stuck on the concept of lighting the room not the plant. Hence my lights are high up and plentiful but 600w will do nicely across 2 plants Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

    My Intro

    the 400wx2 in 1.5x1.5 was my initial plan, 600 is a more balanced watt\lumen and as far as i know the most efficient of the old school hid options im running 2x 400w and a '360'w led in 2x2 for 4 plants and honestly feel like a 4th light would not be amiss best case would be a gavita 750 in there imo, but non cooled hood adds a lot of temp considerations in a tent too small to optimally supplement co2

    90 Scrog Elbow

    hahahahaha, pass. all good, the idea is from a greenhousy thing i bodged together a few years ago. if memory serves i cut holes in the flat disc and threaded a nipple into it, pvc welded and it gave 2 horizontal 2 vertical per coupling

    that res controller would have saved me so much ballache last night 🙂 great idea, may have t implement something similar, makes me want to rig up the main res too sommer

    90 Scrog Elbow

    As a slightly less elegant but somewhat more expandable. The round junction boxes work nicely for multipoint connections and expansion Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

    Hydro grow test advice needed

    Agreed. 45l will be too small to reliably use long term look at adding a main res and making it a recirculating dwc. More water more pH stability less top ups. But as batista says flood and drain seems to be the simplest Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

    Nice. Got a dwc chilli plant going for the hell of it too. Can see it poking it's head out above the Charlotte's angel Sent from my ANE-LX2 using Tapatalk

  14. firstly, welcome to the forum . i cant really say i have grown seasonal strains temp wise, more adjusted the environment to suit. move light cycles to run in the coller times of the day , add fans etc what are you doing for ventilation, intake, circulation and exhaust. i have just moved 4 massive plants out of an 80x80x1.8 under 400w hps , temps were running 28'ish on the hot days no aircon
