Humidity problem by James Blythestock - Thu, 13 Oct 2016 06:47:24 EST ID:aWb7Y/oB No.143606 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have a 60x60x180 tent up in a room where the humidity gets super high. Already lost most of one plant to mold, looking to sort it out before I try again.

Main problem is I sleep in the same room, and don't really fancy having the extractor fan going all night as it's impossible to sleep with it on.

Few questions, where would the best place to put a dehumidifier, in the tent or just in the same room? Also would putting the dehumidifier inside the grow tent at night allow me to sleep with the extractor fan off?

I had 2 plants in there, one was ruined by mold but the other was completely fine.

Basically looking for a way to control humidity without having to sleep with the noisy extractor fans going. The fans inside to blow air over the plants can stay on but the extractor is way too noisy to sleep with on.

You don't have to put it into the tent because the tent is breathing the room's air. If you're cloning you want 90% humidity, for veg around 60-70% and for bloom under 35%.

masturbate in a different room before you go to sleep, that will keep the humidity down.

I recently transplanted a pretty big clone of some blue dragon into some Ocean forest fox farm soil. Im not sure what soil i was oricginally rooted on. But ever since then i have cropped it and the healing knott has done very well. After that i did some LST to keep all 4 tops the same height. But now i jave recently noticeds that new growth and lower leaves have a very light green color, along with clawed leaves. Im afraid it is nute burn, but i have rarely had any deficiencies in any plants ive grown so i dont have the eye for it. Can you guys help a fellow grower fix this problem? I just did a 2 gallon flush on about a liter pot and am afraid that it wont work. Can you share some advice?

The quickest way to rule out nutrient burn is your leaf tips, if they're not brown then you probably aren't overdoing it. Yours looks like either overwatering, root rot, or micronute deficiency.

Hello there. I would love to start my own PF Tek in a couple of weeks and i'm getting my gear ready, although I have some questions.

I bought jars like the middle ones in the picture, but after that I read that normal vermi + brown rice flour cakes won't come out of the jar and i know i will have problems finding jars that don't get thinner near the lid.

That's a bit of a problem and i was thinking of some tupperware or something similar. Does anyone have any advice or recommendations? I would love to learn something and get some good advice before going for the whole process

You don't need vermiculite if you are using coir, pressure cookers don't pasteurize substrate; they sterilize it and you don't want to sterilize bulk substrate, spray painting the bins doesn't do anything to prevent side-pinning; the substrate shrinks and pulls away from the sides of the bin as it colonizes, and you don't need to drill giant holes and fill them with polyfill, you can just drill small 1/8" holes and leave them unfiltered. Coir and fully colonized spawn are not vulnerable to contamination, and some polyester stuffing isn't going to keep out contaminants anyway.

You use the pc to pasteurize the sub by leaving the lid off and boiling the water in the bottom. Watch the RR vids.

Yes, you can drill 1/8 holes, but I don't trust the forced air in the house when I am blowing indirect air in the direction of the tub, so I still use poly.

I also use a combination of verm and coir because straight coir or verm alone does not make a happy sub.

You're right about the spray paint thing... Side pins are a bitch.

You're right about pp5, but the problem is making the lids properly...

Also, in the beginner stages of growing I fucked up and a bunch of them melted int he bottom of the pc... then I had to get a new one... not cool.

>pasteurize the sub by leaving the lid off and boiling the water in the bottom.

That's not pasteurizing, that's sterilizing. Heating the substrate to 212 degrees with boiling water will kill all of the bacteria and leave it more susceptible to contamination than it was before. The hot water from your kitchen sink is hot enough to pasteurize, you don't need to use a stove or a pressure cooker.

>I don't trust the forced air in the house when I am blowing indirect air in the direction of the tub, so I still use poly.

If it makes you feel any better, then go ahead, but bacteria and mold spores can go through polyester stuffing like gnats through a chain link fence. Personally I don't worry about contamination at all in the post-spawn stage. If you get contamination in your bulk substrate, odds are it's because your spawn was contaminated to begin with and you didn't notice.

>straight coir or verm alone does not make a happy sub.

The only purpose vermiculite serves is to retain moisture, and coir retains just as much moisture as vermiculite does, and has more nutrients. If you have coir, there's no reason to add vermiculite. If you want to add something to it, it should be something nutritive like worm castings or horse shit.

Can I test a reflector with an HPS lamp for a few seconds?

dig them up and replant them into some big pots then put them somewhere with a stable temperture. you could go as far as building a mini greenhouse around then then put a spaceheater thats connected to a temperture sensor that turna on when it gets to a temperture that you set.

if you cut underripe branches off your plant and put them in water in the window they will continue to grow for 2-4 more weeks.

Ive got a tent in flower under 1200w of hps full spectrum.
Ive started setting up a second much smaller tent so I can have a go at mainlining and the two should finish around the same time.

I was gonna be running 1800w 12 hours a day and a further 6 hours of 600w so I thought why dont I use the flowering tent for the first 12 hours of vegging and move them to the other tent for the last 6 hours of the day, moving them back each night. Bit of effort maybe but why wouldn't that work?
Then Ive only got an extra 6 hours of 600w a day to fund.

I was gonna ram a 600w hps in a 3'x3'x5' tent with one, maybe 2 plants and train the fuck out of them.
I realized 600w may be too much.
Im thinking with my wallet more too and I cant decide between 300w CFL or 250w HPS.

CFL is cheaper to run and to buy.
That is important to me.
HPS is better light and better yield.
That is important to me.

I appreciate your advice guys, I do, but what Im asking is will the change from 12 hours of 1200w hps light to 6 hours 300w cfl in the same day be a problem?

Im not spending £100 on a 300w LED
nor am I buying 5' T5's

Will the switch from hps to cfl within the 18 hours veg period shock the plant in anyway?

Yes.

The CFL will do you no good. 300w of CFL is less than 1/4 of the light as 1200w of HPS. It should keep it from going into bloom, though, which seems to be all that you want. And trust me, after doing it a few times, you're going to hate moving your plants.

But good luck, nonetheless, sir.
