That's a marvellous DIY setup brother Yaz. Let's see if we can dial it in.

Temp and humidity are good, perhaps a tad wet for bloom. But you're in the Veg stage, correct?

Light placement looks okay, maybe a little too close to the wall. Is it covering the girls evenly? Is there any way to raise/lower the reflector or slide it over? If not, you may need to rotate the plants themselves periodically for even distribution.

How is the exhaust set up? Got any kind of fresh air exchange when the door closes? They need circulation if it's not already in place.

One last question: How are you preventing drainage from running down to those wires beneath? That seems a rather hazardous position for electricity.

But the air conditioning is onn at 26 degrees Celsius all the time. And the cupboard doors are also closed only at night.

Can i put a table fan on chair directing wind to them

And keep open the doors?

There is no active exhaust system
But we use the room as our bedroom so the window and door is generally open when aircon is off. And the doors too are open of the cupboard.

Water i do very carefully not to spill off.

I am putting another 8000 lumens led on top tomorrow to see of they still stretch.

Any kind of circulation you can give them is better than nothing at all. But I think you need a 6" fan in there at bare minimum.

Drainage is going to be a complication if you're saturating those bags properly. You need to give them a good rinse now and then to wash away any excess salts from the bottom, which build up over time and can become poisonous. If you can't move or insulate the wires, find a way to collect runoff so you can then dump it. I use 12" horticulture saucers like these pictured.

I am doing all organic so no salt buildups.
I give 500 ml water in 25 kg soil whenever needed so no runoff

Those wires are re done so not problem now

I attached another 100 watts led

And it is written 10000 lumens so total 20000 lumens and 200 watts now.

I cant install a fan inside but i will work on a small simple exhaust fan so air can be circulated

Till then i will open the doors at morning and start a table fan facing plants and big open window.

Only at night will close doors and stop fan (exhaust will be on all the time) and start aircon as i sleep in same room

That looks okay. They're going to grow!

One thing I'd like to suggest instead of trying to support lanky stems, you could try covering them with a sprinkle of dirt, while mixing up the top soil with fingers to give the roots a breath. You'll feel if there's any compaction and it'll help distribute the moisture with oxygen. A good exercise to practice every few days in between waterings.

I try to get soil all the way up to the cotyledons - the baby leaves - even if it means bending them over some. This way, the plant will be in better shape to support itself during bloom.

Smallest is low rider its dark with compact stem

All the plants get 12 hours of natural light from 2 large windows and one door!

And 24 hours 100 watt led and a ceiling fan

Please sudgest and comment

No! If they are auto, then flowering will begin automatically - when the internal genetic clock tells the plant she's mature - regardless of how large or small she is and independent of the amount of light received. We can give Auto plants 24 hr. light all the way through its life, and she will grow larger the more you can give.

Any less than 18 hours, and yields will begin to decrease. Only photoperiod (regular) cannabis should be grown in 12/12 conditions, which it needs in order to trigger bloom.
