Hi guys I’m just starting to grow my own cannabis plants As abit off a hobbie and to save abit off money  🤷‍♂️

ive partitioned half off my spare room off and lined all the walls.

i have two 600w bulbs hung over my two stardog cuttings currently on 18hour and off 6hour ,

I’m using 60/40 coco as I’ve read it’s the best for beginners ?

and I‘ve bought the coco a&b & all the coco brand supplements

I have extractor in and filter and extractor out and a normal house fan blowing on the plants .

im just looking for general growing tips like what temp should my room be at when lights are on and light off?

when should my air in and extractor be on?

what should my room humidity be ?

when and what and how should I feed them ? 

I’ll add pictures off them tomorrow 

 

 this page looks very helpful and would love any feedback back .

thanks guys 👍

Hi bruce welcome to Percys!

Extraction should be on alll the time. But right now, you will only need one 600 hps over 2 cuttings as they are small. so get the both under one light for now 

The rest of the ifno you need depends and where you are in the grow and how big your room is. Let us know more info mate and we will keep you on track Smile

Hey mate welcome! Seems like you have an awesome grow running already! What cultivars (strains) are you runnning?

Posted by: @brucelee334

what temp should my room be at when lights are on and light off?

During veg I try to achieve 26C-27C with lights on and 21C-23C during the night. I've heard many growers say to try to shoot for a nice 5C difference between day and night temps. Try to avoid going under 18C. It happened to me on one of my first runs and some mechanisms of the plants starts to shut down.
During flower I try to achieve 24C with lights on and around 19C-20C with lights off. My reasoning is they veg during the summer and flower during the fall.

when should my air in and extractor be on?

All the time. How big in volume is your tent? Is your extractor dialed in to extract that volume of air in 3 minutes? At least tha's the rule I know.

what should my room humidity be ?

 

During seedling stage and early veg I try to shoot 60%-70%. Since the radicular system (roots) isn't big enough yet, they can that way intake water from the humidity in the air through the stomata in their leaves.
During veg I shoot for 50%-60%. Usually I have higher RH than that, so what I do is try to raise the temp. It is a good idea to understand the relationship between temperature and RH. In a nutshell raising temperature decreases RH and lowering temperature increases RH. Raising RH decreases temperature, decreasing it raises temperature.
Durign flowering I shoot for 40%-50%, and the later they are in flower, the lower I want my RH. Mainly to avoid mold.

when and what and how should I feed them ? 

That has to be answered by our coco growers @Macky, @Monkeydo, @Green-beard come to mind.

Can wait to see them brother!.

Stay safe, happy growing and good smokes! Bongin
