What's up Weed Nerds! So things are starting to come together in my 4x4 tent setup. I could not be any happier at this stage. Especially considering last round my plants where dying from the low humidity at this stage. Growing cannabis has a huge learning curve, and you will get curve balls thrown at you. So that means you will strike out, but with practice, and determination you will get hits, which can lead to RBI's. Maybe even get a few home runs, but just as baseball has 9 innings, growing indoor cannabis has a few months to get that win. This round of growing Im aiming for the fences!
My tent is a 4x4 tent, and I have a 390 CFM inline fan, along with tow oscillating fans on the left, and right sides. In addition to these I also have 2 humidifiers to maintain humidity in the 60% range during VEG with the help of an Inkbird controller. Currently I am utilizing a 20/4 light cycle with a 600 watt Kingbright bar style LED that has the LM301h Samsung Diodes, along with Cree Xp-e2 660nm Uv Ir diodes. This will be my first grow cycle using this light all the way through, since I got this light half way in flower last round.

Recently I lollipopped, and did some Supercropping. Then did a good spray with Dr. Enzymes, which is some great stuff, hit that link to get yourself a free sample. It is very important to have a good IPM regiment. Plants left unchecked are a ticking time bomb, especially if you have a packed house. I still have not gave these gals a NPK feeding. Only have game them Cal/Mag, due to using RO water, and a couple Rhizo blasts. However, I did feed these lady's some Mono Silica the other day. I am in awe of this stuff, can you believe that all it took to feed the whole tent was .1ML!
So one thing that I am contemplating, is setting up the trellis for a SCROG. I know it will be a pain, but worth it. Especially if I keep up with the IPM regiment before I get into the flower stage, which will be very soon. I suppose aiming for the fences will call for a SCROG. After all, I have the proper light to give these gals in every inch of the tent.
There is the SilverMac, which is a plant I am loving! Going to be leaning heavy towards the Sativa side of life. Even in this stage, handling, and bending those braches lets off a woody smell. It actually reminds me so much of the Silver Haze. Hopefully the Mac and Cheese brings out the THC, and by THC I mean Delta9, ;)
I still have a ways to go, and by no means do I think this will be a easy ride. Execution is key, and staying on top of this tent is a must. Great thing that I work right down the road, so that way I can check up on these gals during the day. Before work, and then when I get off of work. Obsessed? Not even. It’s just what you have to do to grow good herbs. Am I there yet? Nope. But I like to think I am on my way! All while sharing it with you all here on the chain, and even making crypto while I do it. Does it get any better then that? I think not :)
