Any difference in light distance to canopy this run?
Yes, fixed height at the top of the tent

Fuckin love the almost daily pics.
Longtime lurker here, show looks on POINT!
Building out COBs here myself, so I was super pumped to see your results so far.
I was looking to build a LPA setup, but seeing this, I might make the jump to HPA.
Around how much would you say was the cost of just the HPA irrigation(if I can call it that) for one tent? I know you're running SCROG buckets, but was curious if the manifold + emitters would change the cost significantly for something like a 4x4 table SOG.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks man, thanks for stopping by.
Just the table, plumbing and solenoids for one tent with nothing else? IDK, I'd play it safe and say less than $400. Table would be the most expensive part. Solenoids are about $20 each. You can find food safe fittings for cheap.
There's a whole lot of control equipment, pumps, accumulators, res, monitoring etc. not included in my estimate.
A table would be the best option to run a SOG, I run 3 nozzles per solenoid but I bet you could get away with 5 per. A benefit is that you can prop up one end slightly to make it easy to collect the runoff instead of having to suck it out like I do.
Honestly, I'm still a new grower. And I have never grown any other way so I don't have anything to compare my results to. Last run with the shitty blueberry I pulled about 600g (1.07gpw) out of the tent when it was dry. With time, and luck I'll find a strain that really does the business.
Thanks man, I really appreciate it. Thanks for stopping by.
Day 29 of flowering for the grape ape
Looking forward to seeing how this run goes!
Most people would be ecstatic to pull 1 GPW, granted I haven't seen many starting out with COBs and LED.
Edit: Are you still doing 30 seconds mist per 180, or did I misread that earlier?
Feed times are 2-4 seconds every 180 seconds
Day 30 of flowering for the grape ape
There’s a cut of the mutant humble pie that hasn’t sexed yet in the bottom right in a solo cup with phed tap water. Hope it’s a lady cause it’s stinky.
Ga#1 is clearly winning in the flower tent and I have already transplanted both prospective ga#1 moms into their “1 gallon” pots. I left one ga#2 in a 6x6x5 pot to get a ballpark idea on how long they can be kept in one without too much fuss on my part.
Pics of when the plants are all the way awake, ga#1 is the front left half of the scrog diagonally.
Much more resin production thus far as compared to the blueberry I ran last.
Hoping these get super fat and smoke well since the structure is very desirable for scrogging. Easily managed with just a few minutes a day of routine care.
