Don't worry if you "break" the stalk a few days with a pencil splint and all will be good
Can you see the Co2 hose?
And if you tie the base of the primary stalk don't forget to free it after a few days cause if it's tight girdling will happen
See where the string was?that's a girdle starting, plant has been tied since Sunday, that's 5 days
Those broken stalks will heal up in just a few days won't be pretty however it works
Looking good @Uncle_Al
How do you generate your co2?
I don't generate, I have three 20# bottles of food grade Co2 that I refill at the welding gas store , I have a pair of timers one timers controls gas allowed hours the other controls gas spray timing, on the lowest setting of timers it goes from 650ppm to2250ppm in two and a half seconds in twenty minutes the level drops to 850ppm and hits a spray again, I have a Co2 meter that records ppm, temperature, humidity and time I can view a printout on a Windows computer.there is also a final metering valve after the main pressure regulator that slows the pressure discharge so the gas don't release all at once
sounds awesome @Uncle_Al what a setup
Grow room Co2 system
So it's time for an update on the actual subject of the thread, been real busy I let things get a little too dry this this weekend and my pH went up, as a result I popped a few yellows. I am utilizing 16oz cups this time around instead of the slightly larger pots I usually use. The idea was to eliminate or reduce early damp offs. The plants are ok with it or so it seems,I just have to monitor water closer.
I have arranged a 6 bulb hanging fluorescent luminaire, that I call the Glowatron. Seems I needed more lights to cover the increased activity in here, I have another 25 seeds/sprouts going on for a 16oz. Cup grow competition. For conversation sake there are 5 Durban Poison, 5 Cindy's, 5 psycho, 5 ak, and 5 jack herrer. My first successful clone is in there too
I call the light the Glowatron to mock Hartford county assistant D.A. Glowa. An asshole on legs, he treated every crime in misdemeanor court like it was a murder1. He has died from cancer. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy,I'm glad he's gone.
Dank mix has taken over
Even the weakest, smallest one is improving. Last time around I reported that I had to manually remove the seed coat, but it's starting to pop
Hmm I better keep an eye on my plant count or the Ghost of Glowa will catch me over 99.
35 plants in 5 gallon buckets
32 seedlings in 16oz cups
25 seeds/sprouts in 16oz cups
2 clones in 16oz cups
That's a grand total of 94
Clone from plant I broke the top off moving the buckets
This is the timer and power cords going to the Glowatron
Yeah that's right two power cords, the timer controls a magnetic contactor, the contactor takes the load off of the timer for safety, no fires caused by burned up timers. I do the same for the big lights and the Co2 system.
There are three 250w hps set-ups That will also feature magnetic contactors for safety, I am an industrial electrician for my day job
