    hey evil I'm gonna have to go over & see how your thread is doing I'm really needing to get more knowledgeable about these leds & their components as I'm wanting to set up a second grow just have been putting it off until I get more favorable results out of my current grow & im getting close I'm wanting my current room as well as a tent & another led that will have a different strain long story short 2 smaller efficient grows that hit 40-45 days apart perpetual using a common veg area under my t-5 & of coarse when I get my keeper strains I'll be cloning I'll be doing dwc/waterfarm & scrogging

    I just got going again in my new space running two 3x3's and will have a closet for pre veg clones seed starting under some Citi 1212's hung over a shelf on a rack like I use to have with my T5's.......I'm working on adjusting to a much different climate and it has been going well so far. I am also trying DWC again have a chip on my shoulder with it, and I always felt it was from the heat where I lived before so we will see now. Stop by anytime and you know where to find me with any specific questions you may have. You have some guys much more knowledgeable than myself helping you out though :)

    it's all about sharing the experience a lot of times I can only tell someone what did or didn't work for me & let them form their own opinion & a lot of the times advice that was given today might be valuable down the road so it pays to listen always appreciate advice I'm still learning dwc myself & it works good but can be unforgiving compared to e&f

    I'm scrounging up stuff to fire up a second grow even if I have ro power it with my 250-400 switchable hid setup & a single plant to start out with meanwhile my clones are waking up slow but sure & my buds are developing as for the second room I'm not sure if I'm gonna get a tent or just frame in a 4x4 as for light I'm really leaning towards something from timber eventually ATTACH=full]3905819[/ATTACH] IMG_0909.JPG IMG_0910.JPG

    It has been holding close to 80% until 4-5 days ago this summer it will drop to about 27% I have a little water cooler I fill with water to bring it up

    I'm a big fan of RH in the mid 50s, even higher in veg.

    Follow the VPD guidelines.

    Keep in mind that high RH doesn't by itself cause powdery mildew or mold issues; it's big daily swings like between day and night time and lack of good air movement that cause problems.

    the headband seemed like a mold magnet this grow seen a lot more humidity but no problems I also ran heat all night & through most of the lights on period I'm still a bit paranoid added a fan this grow might of helped that gives me one fan below the canopy & an oscillating tower fan at canopy level & an 8" exhaust fan up top the light itself has 6 small fans

    Fan and heater are the classic combo for keeping nighttime conditions in check.

    I have a small ceramic electric heater with a thermostat so it shuts off when it's warm enough we've been hit with warm high humidity (spring has sprung) cloudy weather fronts but nights are mid to high 50s days are low 70s to low 80s on the high end the plants are doing good I don't think my little weather meters are altogether accurate one says 67% & the other says 62% one of them might be right IMG_0921.JPG IMG_0922.JPG IMG_0923.JPG IMG_0926.JPG IMG_0925.JPG

    thanks ttystikk the bluedream they used in this strain is supposed to be the santacruz haze one from the coast maybe it's a little more mold resistant or I just found a strain more suitable to my room in any case I'm going right back with it for another round & im scrounging stuff for another room that this time I'm gonna make ti 4x8 with all the insulation & venting done right divided in the middle for 2 separate grows coming off at around 45 days between harvests along with a clone cabinet & a small veg area insulation & ventilation are gonna be a priority as it gets hot in the summer & being well insulated is just so much easier to heat or cool

    the 4"x4" openings in the screen are pretty easy to manage using jute twine & tying rather than bending & tucking has really reduced the amount of broken limbs the plants have done the rest
