    got it sorted out for the time being. thanks guys. had a straggler that got its own light so its really getting blasted with some lumens all on its own. cant wait to see how she responds.

    these had a bit of a rough start in life. i accidentally initiated flowering a during veg and then caught it a few days in. damage was done and now they are technically monster cropped and just pulling out of their mutant stage with single and three leaf sets. they are about to bush out like no other and then they will get flowered for real lol

    went in to check on them today and all is well. no floods, no failures. i was a bit worried because ive had the stomach flu over the last few days and havent been thinking the clearest. running the extractor was a lot lof fun lol. im no longer sick but still a little cloudy headed. I finally got a pound sent through it and its in the vac chamber right now. i need a real oven with racks in it. gonna spend a full day blowing the rest of my trim and getting it ready to vac. only 5 more pounds to run :( i have a few pounds of older stuff thats already been tumbled but i wanna see what the returns are after its been tumbled. i still have patients that want kief but not many.

    my extractor is holding ~.75lbs so by my math i have 7 more runs lol. this run did ~1.35oz. the last was closer to 2.

    some finished trim run and some little veglings. this mainlined Citral Flo from ethos throws off ROCK HARD spears of excellent high-end commercial buds. i will end up getting it tested but if i was to guess i would say its right at 20%

    need some advice on CO2 use or if I should just skip it. as my screen name suggests, I reside in the desert. the hot ass desert. summer is over but with winter coming i could simply pull in outside cold air at night when the lights are on and skip the CO2. i have a burner but no controller yet. dont know if it makes sense to run a burner but still bring in outside air to cool the room. power is expensive and in the summer time cooling makes up 60% of my bill. i guess it all depends on how much outside air i have to bring in to cool the room.

    filling in nicely. finally making some normal growth after the accidental monstercropping. leaves have returned to normal shape and quantity lol. I got the veg plants into a new recirculating drip system I built. i will get pics of that up later tonight. its just two big tubs connected with a hose and a pump in one that pumps up to a manifold of drippers. the plants sit on the lids with a bunch of little holes so it drains back down. simple as shit. should work well. going to start grafting my mothers all onto one or two plant bases to drop my numbers down and keep the variety up :)

    update time! smooth sailing in PPK land. roots are reaching for the sky and growth is blowing up. PH is stable, EC is stable. life couldn't be better :) just dropped a grand on buckets pumps and hoses right now to build the new system in both buildings! shit is finally coming together.

    as soon as these get moved to the flowering side i am gonna plug the lines on the veg side, vac the water out and then remove the veg side to the next building to save me some work and money. i have to pack all this up after this grow anyways so i may as well simplify where i can. i will be getting a new big building soon!

    wow if I only had that much space

    loving it!!!

    about the co2

    if your going to attempt to run co2 and also exhaust (as in not sealed)

    I would recommend you look at the sentinel EVC controllers

    I own the EVC-2 and I got my digital co2 monitoring device separately but they make an all in one unit that has the co2 monitor built in if that's what you prefer.. ive had mine for about ten years and they both still work great

    the benefit is the option to adjust the dead band which is a huge benefit

    dead band = for example
    most control boxes have a 3 degree differential so if your set to keep the room 75 degrees itll kick on the exhaust fan at 75 and turn off at 72

    these controller allow you to change the dead band from 1 to 9 degrees and the cycling change can save you a lot of propane or co2

    I did it for a while in the winter using 2 100 gallon propane tanks which was nice cuz theyd last a good while maybe more than 1 grow depending on the ambient temps

    its gotta be damn cold outside to make it worth wild thou... and as far as running an a/c id say if you put the power consumption that an a/c unit will cost you into additional lighting you yield more with the additional lighter vs the co2 with an a/c unit.... for a space that size

    Where did you get those planting containers that fit so nicely on top of the 5 gal buckets? I like your setup.

    those are tuffstuff 7 gal feed tubs. they have them at tractor supply and such. online they gouge for shipping. they are rigid plastic ones not the rubber flexible ones. here's a link to the inventor of the system and his newest grow. he's doing 2-3.5 pound plants like this, one plant per DE light scrogged in a 5X5 https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?threadid=336515
