    day 23 of flowering for the BB

    day 17 since sprouting for the grape ape

    res changed

    aero res
    pH 5.8
    ppm 740
    temp 67f

    Humidity has been in the 40's, which isn't great for the seedlings. I've been keeping the veg tent open because it's easier to work with it open but I might have to start shutting it. I've got a little cool mist humidifier running outside which bumps the humidity up to 50% or so at 72-77f.

    Flower tent has been spot on target from 74-77f and an average humidity of 58%.

    day 24 of flowering for the BB

    day 18 since sprouting for the grape ape

    aero res
    pH 5.5 <== adjusted down on purpose, letting it swing
    ppm 750 <== was 720 this morning, and the water was two gallons low
    temp 68f

    Got the humidity up in the veg tent to above 50, 53-58%

    Looks like they were hungry, so I don't think I should let my ppms get that low again

    Not sure what’s up with GA #5, maybe not getting enough light, I cut back the giant BB I have in the veg tent to try and get it some more.

    @SSGrower I started building an interactive menu (with putty, since it accepts ANSI escape codes) that lets you change variables on the fly and saves them to eeprom. I've been working steadily on it since yesterday, but only have two menu items that "do" anything so far, most of my time has been spent setting up the framework to make building the menus easier. It breaks out of the two sub menus and continues the program if you don't do anything. Found the base example on 4fips

    I wouldn't think that was a light issue, unless you know its a dead spot, but it looks like a nute issue, Im garbbin at straws but could it be a plugged nozzle or 2?

    Nah, it wasn't the nozzles. Like 1/8" of water was sitting in the bottom of the bucket, so I did some stuff to increase the drainage.

    It has a big ass blueberry plant shading it, I cut some of that back yesterday. Veg tent is too small for what I got growing in there.

    How are your roots looking on the GA5? same structure and color as the rest?

    Thanks for stopping by,

    Yeah, less root volume though even considering the plant size differences. There was a bit less lateral root development on the roots that spent a lot of time submerged.

    It’s since perked up, it was the drainage on the bucket and not enough light I think. I could probably turn the light up some, maybe that might help.

    day 28 of flowering for the BB

    day 22 since sprouting for the grape ape

    aero res
    pH 5.8
    ppm 770
    temp 68f

    water level is falling, pH is rising, EC is falling (very slowly) like 10ppm a day

    Still only using greenleaf megacrop and mammoth p @ 6g/0.6ml per gallon (only put the mammoth p in at res change).

    Other than that, I top up every day in the morning, sometimes with RO only to bring the concentration down but then I add back in MC before bed if I do that, seems to be working pretty good.

    looks like we're in cruise control now, don't wanna jinx it though so we are NOT in cruise control.

    Correct, no slacking. You are leaps and bounds beyond me with your user interface, my next big upgrade will come when I upgrade driver, which realistically wont happen for several more years unless this one fries and for whatever reason is not covered under meanwells 7 year warranty.

    Thanks man, thanks for stopping by. I don’t think you’ll ever have a problem with the driver, meanwell power supplies are quality. You’ll just be able to reuse it over and over for different projects.

    My new favorite grow thread

    There was another fella talking hpa, seems to be figuring it out. Was gonna tag you but didn't want to make you feel obligated in any way to discuss with him

    It all sounds like Spanish to me. Still interesting non the less

    You can tag me, I've been spending most of my time here and in TnT so I don't see a lot. I've been reading the GPS thread in seed n strain the past week or so most of the time, but I'm all caught up.
