First time manifolding. 4 plants

@AlienBrew almost,…top container has the bottom cut out and is siliconed to the bottom container lid. The bottom lid has the same size hole cut in it.

The top container has 6 spray/fog nozzles in a closed loop system. The spray will spray the roots sitting in 3 inch net pots with foam rings. The open bottom allows the spray and drops to drip back into the reservoir where I have a filter bag with a 3/8 tube in it going to a bulkhead fitting out the front. The pump inlet is hooked to the bulkhead with 3/8 tubing, outlet is connected to the top tote fitting with the nozzles to complete the circuit. I made it so I can have a second reservoir ready to swap out instantly without having down time. Just take the top tote off ,lid attached, and put on the second reservoir. Although I haven’t gotten to the second reservoir yet, so that idea may not happen for a bit.

Got it, the filter is n lower reservoir fed from spray heads n the top res., that spray ur plant’s root system. Lids can b switched by undoing water line, reconnect to the new top that’s set up like the first top, spray heads, net pots, etc, etc. Sounds solid to me, but I know nothing about hydro except what I’ve read recently, n that ain’t a lot. I’ll b on the look :eyes: out for ur journal always looking to see a hydro grow. Very interesting stuff, I’m looking forward to see it working. :+1::+1:

Starting to get some small fox tailing. Battling crazy high humidity…73 degrees and 75% humidity :frowning:
But my exhaust fan is maxed out and all my circulator fans seem to be keeping the bad stuff away. But this is day 52, last crop I cut at 53 days into flower. Trichomes look like they are starting to fall over and look mostly white with some amber.

I’m worried that I’m losing potency by having such high humidity though. Unfortunately I’m doing everything I can to control it


This is why I can’t control it. The basement is not ideal during summer months.

Well I got a dehumidifier for the basement. Should be here Thursday. Hoping they will last till then. Any suggestions for final days? Darkness? Before cut? Anyone? Nope…crickets

Personally I haven’t done the two days of darkness. I just cut the branches trim the buds and toss in my wedryer (hanging multilevel mesh dry bag with carbon filter fan) leave for about a week then final trim into jars for curing. Some buds I leave out to dry as a treat.

Last grow I had humidity down to 45 at the end of flower, so I’m stressing big time about this humidity being so high. I haven’t seen any mold or dying leaves indicating any issues, but they are taking a while to dry as well between watering. I wanted to do a final flush with Flawless Finish.

Maybe give an extra day between waterings. They will drink what they need. Don’t rush watering. They can handle an extra day. Will do them good too. I believe letting them dry a bit makes them absorb more nutes and helps strengthen. I could be wrong tho.

Watered #2 and #3 with 2.5 gallons tap water and 7.5ml/gal Flawless Finish flush.

Well the humidifier is working great, dropped the humidity in the tent down to 55 ish. I have it sitting outside the tent about 5 feet away, blowing the dry air towards the intake.
