Hello. First grow. Always have had a green thumb and love gardening so it comes somewhat naturally I guess.
The seeds came from a bag of Silver Cindy and the others are randoms that idk what they are. There were 5 total Silver Cindy, and 3 randos. 5 seeds took… I think the 3 tallest are the Silver Cindy. The other 2 are somewhat stunted and the rando seeds weren’t mature… so I’m assuming they’re not the Silver Cindy.
I’ll copy/paste the support ticket to answer stuff then add a picture.
-What strain, Seed bank, or bag seed (photo or auto)
Bag seed. Silver Cindy, and possibly rocket fuel? I don’t know yet if they’re auto or photo.
-Age of plant
I believe about 3 weeks as of 9/25 but I could be off by a week.
-Method: Soil w/salt, Organic soil, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, KNF
-Vessels: Type and capacity of container (fabric, plastic, etc)
Cabinet outlined in cheap mylar. Probably a 2x2 space… There’s an adjoining cabinet that I plan to also convert once space starts to become an issue.
-PH and TDS of Water, Solution, runoff (if Applicable)
I’m still learning about this… For now I just use tap water that I let sit out overnight.
-PPM/TDS or EC of nutrient solution if applicable
Only using Fox Farms Big Bloom every other watering for now. Also mist the leaves every now and then with the solution as well.
-Method used to measure PH and TDS
No idea what this is talking about honestly.
-Indoor or Outdoor if indoor, size of grow space
Indoor. Probably 2x2ish.
-Light system List brand and wattage/spectrum
Spider Farmer SF1000. My plan is/was to scale up as needed while trying to keep the initial costs down. 100w
-Actual wattage draw of lights
-Current Light Schedule
-Temps; Day, Night
Around 80 during the day. 70-75 at night. Soil temp tends to stay right around 77-80.
-Humidity; Day, Night
Day around 65-70%. Night drops to around 45%
-Ventilation system; Yes, No, Size
Yes… kind of I guess. I have a small fan bolted high in the cabinet. I have a very small fan down by the plants. I’m using a computer fan for the air inlet… 3 1/2’’ opening at the bottom, and a stronger computer fan at the very top for exhaust (3 1/2’')
-AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier,
There is a small humidifier/mister inside, and a larger vaporizer outside being drawn in from the inlet.
-Co2; Yes, No
There’s probably already some potheads here that mess with Arduino. When I started my huge garden, my goal has always been to make it more hands free than the year prior. So I had covered the entire garden with landscaping fabric and cut holes for the plants. NO MORE WEEDING!!! Also helps retain moisture. I put a drip irrigation system to each plant to maximize the usage of water. So each grow I do with this… I plan on incorporating more technology to make this more and more hands free. Currently the only thing I’m doing that helps me out is using an old phone as a webcam so I can monitor temp, and also to stream classical music through it for the lil fellas.
Here they be!! Cute as a freakin button. Not the best pic… they’re at a perfect heigth that if I raise the tripod the cam will be too tall. Soon though.
