Im personally looking into mini dehumidifier for a new drying set up
Awesome stuff, thank you brother!
Let me know how it goes?
Ive been thinking with this harvest Im going to try some cool temp curing, and having a dehuemy I can easily move back and forth from grow room to curing area would be a nice touch. First harvest wont be too large from my single plant tent, but the summer harvests will allow me to grow 4-6 at once indoor and Ill need a dehumidifier for those babies to cure properly.
BTW, Im loving that I can learn from your Am. Haze grow journal.. it will give me all the info I need in a few months, I am sure.
So far the amnesia haze is anything but haze lol
I grew a buddah haze once and it was a 15-18 week in flower plant (no more pure hazes for me lol) ran it a few times clasic sativa .
This amnesia behaves more like a hybrid besides being quick to grow i havent noticed many sativa traits
Sorry im not going into more detail about what and how im feeding but i figure no one wants to see the boring stuff lol
Nah, feeding and all that is boring.. you're right. And that is precisely what I have heard of the AH. It supposedly can be a 45 dayer in some instances..? Which is silly fast if you ask me. You're currently on about week 2F, am I right?
Yep 2weeks today
Andatech Ionmax ION681 Dehumidifier is what I use in a 4 x 4 tent. Just set it on auto and leave switched on the whole grow. I think it was about $150 on ebay.
Excellent, thank you.
Ok so that is only 6.25 sq. ft. not 9 so the light is a little bit closer for the CO2 but you still need to get temps up to 90°F+. I have CO2 setup but stopped running it as not worth the time money and trouble. I just did not increase the yield so as you could notice because there are so many variables involved in the grow. Keeping VPD in the target range made the biggest single improvement to my growing.
My space is 4x6=24 SQ. FT. when I first start plants I struggle even with a humidifier to get into range. After the leaves get going it is much easier - then I am defoliating and running my 8" hyper fan at full speed trying to keep it down under 70%. Then late into flower I have a 60 QT dehumidifier running in the room where the space is drawing air to keep it below 50% it gets as high as 65% with 70% the danger zone for bud rot!
This VPD chart's gold zone is where you want to be during Veg for maximum growth. Then the white zone to the right works for late flower staying out of the danger zone <65°F at 70% humidity will rot your buds almost for sure. This is why a lot of growers error on the side of dry. Like I said it is a balancing act.
This is my current grow. Just gave them the second training prune to do a manifold - 8 main colas per plant. 4 Heavyweight Monster Profits and 2 Zambeza Blue Brilliants. One of the BB had a real problem getting started so she will not be trained just allowed to grow naturally.
Great stuff Randy, thank you!
Ok so my current grow isn’t a true Scrog although I have got to grips with using a screen a bit now. In the future I’d like get into a better rhythm so I’m looking for some advice.. Assuming I’m growing an 8 week strain, how many plants would I need to fill a 3x3 screen and be able to flip at 8 weeks veg time? I know it’s strain dependant but on average? I’m thinking about trying to start keeping my plant numbers down a bit.. I have read through this whole thread and maybe it’s been asked before but I can’t remember this query specially..
I’m running dtw over Rockwool, is this a suitable setup for Scrogging? I’ve seen that DWC buckets seem to be used a lot..
Tk: How many plants is like asking how long is a rope! There are just too many other variables. Just go for it and learn about your own system. I filled absolutely to the maximum a 3x3x5 foot tent with 1 Moby Dick CBD (not doing scrog) in DWC but I would start at least 2 plants just in case one didn't make it.
As Randy said it depends on to many variables. Id go 5 for the first run and if they fill the screen before the 8 week marker then drop done to 4, see where they get you and drop down again if you can. Use clones for more consistent results.
Just finishing a gg4 and cookies kush scrog...
Stretch done finally, I underestimated her this round in a bigger pot. Bad pic, didn’t take the time to stack photos. (#10 pot, 36”x36” tent, 2”x2“ screen spacing)
This one is from the same mother, it’s about to finish.
Wow.. how long did you Veg. for?
Current use of the net. Here are pics from last 3 weeks; From left to right, Wedding Cake from cut, Black Russian from free seed about 5 years ago and Midnight Kush from cut. 12/12 started 3/10
Thanks! I can’t remember, I’ll hold plants in veg until I have room in flower so it varies, but it usually takes about 8-10 weeks to build a very dense canopy like that one.
Got my first screen prepared. ~23"x17".
5 strains one net !!! Smoking this scrog now.
