I am a legal Canadian recreational grower, growing my 4 plants, in a 8x8 room in my basement. I started with genetics from Canuk seeds, and crop king seeds. The 4 strains I am growing are; Canuk cookies, super lemon haze, white widow, and CBDutch passion. I popped the beans about a month ago. Started under a 4’ LED shop light. 2 weeks later swapped in a 150w hps. And just today, I put them under an air cooled 1000w Hps. Room is wrapped with panda film. I’ve got a 6” intake fan, 6” exhaust fan, and a 4” exhaust fan cooling the light. There is a couple oscillating fans creating airflow as well. The girls were started in red solo cups. Right now the girls are in coco perlite mix in 1 gallon pots, and looking pretty good. This is my first attempt at growing in coco, and I am loving it. First ever posting in any sort of forum so bare with me lol. Any tips/advice will be very much appreciated. Found this site from of dr mj coco’s youtube channel, I like what I’ve seen so far.
Forgot to mention I’m using innovating plant products H.O.G. Line. Never used their nutes before but so far so good. The price was right, at only $100 cad for their complete line up. Came highly recommended from my local hydro shop owner. He mentioned it is very similar to advanced nutrients, and was founded by an ex advanced employee. Not sure how true any of that is, but I’m happy so far.
I’ve been fertigating 2x/day, with a solution at a ph of around 6.3, at 950ppm. My room lo temps are around 72 F, and occasional highs of 82 F.
Humidity has been a constant battle. I have a humidifier connected to a humidity controller it is pretty much running all the time, spray 2x per day, and have only been able get up around 50%RH.(average 35%) This morning I have turned off my intake, to see if I can get my humidity up. Maybe I’ll connect it to the high side of the humidity controller. We’ll see what happens with temps.
My exhaust is connected to my temperature controller, to only come on when temps hit 83 F.
I have an automatic watering system that I will probably set up once I get the girls into to 5 gal pots. Hopefully I can get my coco ready for tmr but we’ll see lol. I do need to pick up a digital timer for it. Fertigating 5x/day should help with my low humidity problems.
This morning I hit the girls with 1000 ppm @ a ph of 5.8.
