I have a question guys. I made my soil with FF and perlite, in 5 gal cloth pots. They ended up quite damp just from moisture in the FF bags. I had set them in the tent before I got my seeds to sprout. Question should i keep the pots damp because they are drying out. Is it going to be problem to rewet them again?
@BeeKeeper2, they love flood and drought cycles, pick up the bag, if it feels like their is no water in it, time to flood. Hope this helps
I have a question about preventive measures for pests. Read here recently about spider mites. They ruined a indoor attempt I made years ago. Didnt know about them and internet was just starting. I had cobwebs before I realized I had a problem. Do you guys use neem on plants without symptoms? Something else every other time?
I do use neem on all my plants for one week during veg. I don’t do it for the bug prevention tho. I do it for the fungacide just as a preventative measure.
Thanks @RandomlyRan… Do people use anything a preventive for bugs and that? Also Ran I have all the materials for that light build. May start that today. Got 1x1x1/16 angle, I’ll make it work.
Neem works for bugs…I only personally use it for the fungacide but that could be why I only had one pest problem last year and it was before I started neem.
On the light I used 1/8’ thickness. We would have to ask @dbrn32. Is 1/16 thick enough for the angle? Just wondering heat disappation wise?
@Randomly, @dbrn32… Ran, dbrn, I’m using 4 of QB120s v2. I want to run the driver outside the tent. Does driver need any type of heat sink outside the tent in-line with power cord? Thanks again guys…
No mines screwed to the wall outside my tent.
Probably, will be flimsy though.
I think it’ll be fine as is.
@BeeKeeper2, plants are looking healthy! Keep doing what you’re doing! They will start taking off. Your lights and plants are making progress!
Thanks @RandomlyRan Its like 43 inches long. I want to use it for half of my 4x4. Do you like it? Anything you would do?
I do. It will veg your whole 4x4. I built mine in a square but 6 of one half dozen of another I guess.
I agree it’s fine. Also would have built more in square to veg 4x4.
I concur with what all above have said. Looking good.
