Turns lights down or not

hi people not posted for a long time well I feel like this grow I have found my green fingers I’m o week 7 of flower they really starting to fatten up and full of sticky triclones
I’m just wondering I have to digital ballast hps 600 watt lights the hairs are starting to turn brown and they starting to to rippen up get ripe would you suggest to keep them at 600 or turn them down a little to the 400 watt setting the last 2 weeks

Once upon a time, there was a non-conforming sparrow that decided not to fly south for the winter.
However, soon the weather turned so cold that he reluctantly started to fly south. In a short time, ice began to form on his wings and he fell to earth in a farmyard, almost frozen. A cow passed by and crapped on the little sparrow. The sparrow thought it was the end, but the manure warmed him and defrosted his wings. Warm and happy, able to breathe, he started to sing. Just then a large cat came by, and hearing the chirping, investigated the sounds. The cat cleared away the manure, found the chirping bird, and promptly ate him!
The moral of the story:

  1. Everyone who sh*ts on you is not necessarily your enemy.
  2. Everyone who gets you out of the sh*t is not necessarily your friend.
  3. And, if you’re warm and happy in a pile of sh*t, keep your mouth shut!

Or for our purposes, if it ain’t broke - shhhhh :wink:


wow a little bit more info than needs but thanks
yeah they are really happy the temps don’t go above 26’c as we do it in the UK on other side of the pond you use the farinite temps but that is a healthy temp and with lights of don’t drop below 18 degrees Celsius the HR is around 50% I have plenty of air movement and they look sexy I try get some pics on here later when it’s time to open the magic door
I had so many problems in the past but I guess it’s like any thing in life you have to make mistakes to get it right hope I learnt well know


My lights don’t come on for another 20 minutes and I was bored :wink: I figured it would be a little more interesting than “no” :laughing:

If they are doing what they are supposed to, keep doing what you are doing.

Mine both started out ‘iffy’ as well. then took off once I got my stuff together. I have found myself using this site to toss around ideas, most of which never happen, just for input. We stoners are good at ideas - not all worthwhile.

I thought this up a few months ago. No matter what, unless there is a natural disaster, nothing can kill the plants quicker than human interaction. Boredom kills!

All good brother
Its alot to take in when you start and we all get overloaded with info at first and theres alot here
Glad you decided to come back now that you have a working knowledge of the plant
You can try other things to help out the grow
Tag me if i can assist

As far as the humidity do you exhaust out of the house and intake from outdoors
I recycle my air in my flower room
Which is in my basement i have two dehumidifiers one in flower room second in basement itself flower room i set to 40 % and basement to 50%

I then exhaust may flower room into basement which has dry and colled air i have ac in flower eoom as well
I then have a intake fan that pulls air back into flower room but as I mentioned that air is never over 50%

Yes high humidity in flower can be a issue
1 and worst case bud rot
2 buds with be more airy with high humidity in room

@Countryboyjvd1971 I managed to get back down by turning 1 of my dehumidifiers up but to answer your question I’m growing in a 2.40 x1.20 x1.80 I use 2x 600w digital ballast in air cooled shades I use a 8 inch rvk fan pulling air from outside the tent through the 2 lights straight outside, I have another 8inch inline fan with a large filter going outside maybe I over compensated but I had bad air problems and heat in the past and you can never move enough fresh co2 air in to you room I guess also I use a 4 inch rvk for intake being pulled from the same room the tent is in. I’m growing in 60/40 clay pebbles coco and using canna nutes just about to start flush in next couple days
