Hey all, I am new here, and asked a question in “Hydro Crunch Lights” had a few responses so I will be tagging them here. @HornHead, @SlowOldGuy, @Oldsoldier1976, @peachfuzz, @DoobieNoobie
I have done so much wrong on this, plants for tent size, heat, to big a planter(can’t move the dam thing especially with the screen in place) lol.
Pain in the butt to water, made a funnel type thing to get the whole pot soaked. Over flow I have to collect enough for testing then use a mighty vac to get it all out of the drain pan…again LOL! AND a whole lot more… see the Hydro Crunch Light thread in Beginner/Basics.
Below is the ticket asked to be filled in

Day, been a tough time with temps but currently been 75°f- 85° been as high as 99°f !! But…soil temps at one time were as high as 91°f so I took a stainless steel tube bent it onto a U shapr and put it down into the soil attached a shrimp chiller…worked perfectly got soil temp down to 73-80°f on a regular. Not cooler tube not needed to much after AC installed.

Day: always less than 55

6" intake and 4"intake fans with all vents open.

Have a hand written journal, too long to retype, will add pictures of it if anyone’s interested.(shows the fight I’ve been having with the heat and the LST.
ANYWAY , this is where were at as of yesterday day 58 since put in soil.
Day 10 since sign of first flower on 6-7
Getting this screen filled was a challenge. I have done so much wrong on this first attempt into scrogging but hopefully they all won’t herm no me but …we’ll see. I have grown before but not to this extent but it sure if fun to see how far Its come in a short amount time.
Today is a 6.8 ph’d hydrazine(sp?) cal-mag water only 2 1/2 to 3 gal or until run off.
Any and all advice is welcome and appreciated.
I do have a question…
