Sorry had to start earlier than today, but I had to get my system operational before I have to go back to work in Kansas City.

Let’s see the progress

Cannabis Grow 0A70BA46 89B7 4195 8A91 30D957B4574E



the left is runtz and it looks ok, the next one to the right is runtz doesn’t look so good.
the two wedding cakes are growing very well. They will probably be ready for transplant in a week or two.

the runtz in the middle is not looking so good, but I only want 3 plants in the end.

Looking good my micro dosing auto water is working very well but my holders don’t seem to want to drain. I will have to fix that when I get home.

Okay hitting my first snag of my grow went in this morning to check on the plants and see a calcium magnesium deficiency. Blotchy leaves and yellowing leaves on some plants prepped a cal mag foliar spray, and slowly bumping up the cal mag dose in the res by 30-50 ppms every feeding. All this while flying to Pittsburg. Gotta love technology.

Okay so here is the fallout of my cal mag issue. Looks to corrected, well lesson learned when transplanting make sure you have enough cal mag in your coco.

Well look now we are back in business the new growth looks good, and tomorrow I will start the training regiment. I will make them do 50 push-ups a day 100 laps around the field. Lol 😂 anyways I will be in town to work my garden tomorrow. Let’s see what a few days of recovery look like.

Yes this garden is almost 100% remote controlled, I travel for work. Right now I am running a job out of Somerset PA, and I get home about once a week to check up on these plants. My girlfriend lives with me and she tends to the emergency items. Right now I have auto dosing setup, and can mostly control the nutrient dosing into the tank. I am running an AC Infinity Controller 69 Pro for the environment controls. It controls the lights, exhaust fan, humidifier. The nutrient tank has a basic timer for watering right now I am running a 8 second water interval every 12 hours. This delivers about .6 gallons of water a day. I have a flow meter on my watering system so I know how much water I am giving them a day. My resivor is a 17 gallon tote, it has 10 gallons usable volume. If I drain it down to far the pumps cavitate, on the resivor I have a atlas scientific ec meter, and pH meter.  Just got that installed last week, this week I am hooking up a ultrasonic level sensor to tell what level my res is at. I have a 8 pump dosing system that can be controlled via WIFI. Right now I can remote control most of my system operation from dosing, to ph, t0 VPD, light cycle, and temperature. It is controlled across a hoge podge of programs. I eventually want to develop my own controller that integrates all these devices into one program. It will take time to do that but it is a fun hobby, I am a controls engineer so this is my specialty automation.  Anyways let's see how this experiment and challenge turns out.

Got home and trimmed the damaged leaves off the plant. Installed a new higher res camera.

Looking good eC is at 1.0 uS was going to do a res refill but still have six gallons in the tank so I am going to wait until Tuesday to refill the res and make up a new batch. While I am waiting I am going to add more cal mag to slowly get the ec up to 1.2 uS so next mix I can add more nutes. I also had to install check valves on my nutrient dosers all the nutrients emptied out of their lines. Back into the supply tanks:

Okay my dosing pumps are crap they leak out into the res over the week, I paid 80 bucks for each one which is 4 dosing pumps. Well they say you get what you pay for, and dosing pumps are expensive so I got crap. I am going to change these pumps out for some Kamomer stepper motor pumps they are 22 bucks a pump on amazon. I have already programmed one up, and it is far superior to the cheap as chips jabao dosing pumps I am rocking on my system. Don't waste your time with these they do work the accuracy is horrible +-15%, and they are leaking into my tank. The Kamomer stepper motor pump is +-0.5% accurate, and I will do a test this next week to see if it leaks out. Auto dosing is expensive but it is nice since you can do things like slowly raise your eC as your plants get bigger. I see a lot of potential in automation, that is not available yet. Like slowly transitioning from flower to veg, slowly raising and lowering target EC of plant feeding. I don't know if this will make a big difference in growing as I suspect that feathering in and out of day to night or summer to fall will only give you maybe 10% more yield. But who knows nobody is offering any type of automation that works like this. We are just happy to have set PH to 7.8 set lights on for 18 hours, then set lights on for 12 hours, and change the PH to 5.9. All the automation I see is just bit banging (where it just switches from one setting to another without transition). Real automation transitions and doesn't just go from one number to another it smoothly transitions from one setting to the next. I am curious to see how this all works out.  I have a feeling it will not be that big but who knows. I know summer just doesn't turn into winter in the real world. Or ec goes from 100 to 500 in just one hour. I am using the ac infinity 69Pro for the environment, and it doesn't just go from zero to hero with it's controls it has 10 levels, that it steps  and that seems to work very well, as I have had very few environmental issues with my grows.
