Suggestions I have successfully germinated and have them in coco canna what do I do now?
I germinated Afghan Kush and Bruce Banner, they are in coco canna only, led lights are Spider Farmer G1000W in 5x5 tent, I know I have been told the light is too much for the seedlings but that’s the only light I have and spider farmer requirements are 12 inches at 80% dim. I had it on 20% so the seedlings have stretched but I have fixed it now. My problem is that I can’t keep the humidity up, temps down, we are 30 degrees Celsius outside with 60% humidity but in my grow tent it’s 37 degrees Celsius and it gets to 35% humidity, if I turn on a humidifier the temperature rises so I got a cool humidifier and im just trying that out now. The coco keeps getting dry so I have to water every 10 to 15 hours, I have to constantly set by the tent make sure i mist the tent as it’s my first grow and I really want them to make it.
any help will be much appreciated.
@sammah786 hi couple of things I did to combat RH issues is go to work on the lung room ie the room ur tent is in. Work on cooling that room the RH will naturally come up I leave the door open on the tent during lights on and try to get the lung room to somewhere near the conditions I want then I would get the vents on the tent opened make sure my inline is set on fine setting to try and hold the conditions. But I think u should try to cool first u will find the RH creeps back up for you. As far as ur coco drying out if ur feeling brave and willing to transplant bigger pots and saturate the whole pot might help, try to not let the coco dry out fully it will stunt the girls remember coco can take alot of water and will not hold it all like soil
I am having the same problems with the weather heating up. I’m in the process of doing what @ukgrow89 suggested with my lung room. Any idea of a temp to aim for in the lung room. I run a LED light ,fan ,exhaust and temps seem to go up a bit when everything is running.
@cookiegrow having a cool lung room helped me to maintain stable VPD within the tent, you want to have fresh air entering and if possible any extraction to be pushed out of the room via vent or window … recirculating air isn’t ideal!
I really appreciate the help, I have turned up the speed on the inline fan to 30% and placed 2x 6”fan one on top and one on the bottom, I was told to put the cover back on because of humidity drops, I have a cool humidifier on full blast and still the humidity is 55 temps 32, when the light are of it’s fine the cool humidifier keeps it under control but when the lights come on it just gives alot of dry heat. There is no reviews on the Spider Farmer G1000 LED’s , I getting a 100w greenfnger LED’s and a 3x3 tent tomorrow do you guys think I should just switch it to that tent until their a few weeks old? I’m have hard time with humidity it get to 30 sometimes even with the humidifier and then I quickly mist the tent, if I have to I will get the Ac infinity humidifier and I’m replacing my in-line fan to Ac infinity, with the help of you lovely people I will try everything in my power to keep these babies alive even if it hurts my budget.
@sammah786 do you have a PAR reader … I downloaded photons and paid for the correct reader … ideally you should aim for about 200/300 PAR for seedlings and increase the light intensity “PAR” as she grows, and maintaining the correct height above canopy … 18/24 inches but do check manufactures recommendations as well.
A decent humidifier sounds like a plan, you will need it throughout the grow and many more projects to come one can only assume, so best to get one now and a decent one at that … as they say but cheap buy twice right haha.
As for coco drying out, once they get bigger … I have seen a few diaries where they cut a piece of paper/card to the shape of the pot to cover the coco to aid drying out but that’s coco, keep the cover over them for now!
New gear, sounds on point very jealous.
I am new to growing, so my knowledge is very basic at present but aim to expand and help as much as I can
@cookiegrow I aim to get somewhere close to what I want in the tent I prefer it a little cooler in the lung room so if I want the tent at 26⁰c then I will aim to have the lung at 22⁰c +/- 2⁰c but don't get hung up on it if u are in a comfortable range then the girls will adapt no worries its the dramatic highs and lows u don't want. Just get it somewhere close and try and hold it there consistency is the main thing really
@sammah786 nice great steps u have taken. With them domes on u will be getting good RH at the plant site watch for them stretching on u. That light is an absolute beast 🤣🤣🤣 suppose its a good problem to have. If u feel like u can control ur environment in a smaller area and can afford it then go for it this shits about making it easy and fun, but remember u have a perfect chance to learn how to perfect and adjust the environment in the badboy 5x5 I would do that personally but maybe just change the light for a week might help with the temps until she is a little bigger
Thanks guys, tonight it’s been much better as the outside weather is humid and the tent humidity was 70 with temperatures of 25-29 Celsius so they were very happy, I got the Photone app payed for the pro version I’m getting 930ppfd and their at 12” with 50% dim , I had it at 20” and they started to stretch so I changed it to what spider Farmer requirements was. I just don’t want to burn them hoping that 930ppfd is ok for newly seeding.
