Hi guys So I'm growing Fast n Vasts, four of them in 10l pots in a 1x1x2 tent in FF's ocean forest soil, planted five days ago. I have a 4" intake and a 5" extractor with an 8" carbon filter (because in my excitement I didn't read the size when I ordered it, but the more the merrier I suppose?), and a standing oscillator and one of those co2 bags. For lights I have two 600w HPSs, which I now know is overkill but again I'm hoping more is better here. The temperature still gets too high after an hour or so, which I'm hoping another passive intake will see to, and which I needed anyway because the air pressure was wrong (the walls were getting sucked in). If it doesn't do enough, I'm also crafting a cheap air con a la this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehRVF3sjl9w which I'm also hoping will stop humidity getting too low. Replacing the ice every day is a bother but it's a small price, though if it doesn't work short of losing a light I don't know what else I can do. I planted them into dry soil then watered afterwards, which I have since read in the sticky here that you must never do, luckily I used a fine rose and generally watered around the centre so I'm hoping the seeds are where I left them. I also read about them being planted a quarter or half inch down, but only after planting, so mine are about two inches down since that's what I'm used to planting other stuff outdoors, I also hope this won't make too much difference. Also, I've just today realised that the bottled water I used was a tad acidic and lacking trace elements, so am swapping to tap, which I'm having to ph down with solution because it's alkaline, and again, just hoping they're alright. I did loads of reading but still made so many mistakes, which is what has motivated me to start a diary here, I need all the help I can get. I'm new to the forum as well, so hello again, and really any advice from experienced auto growers would be greatly appreciated, I'm paranoid about a million things going wrong. I have FF nutes as well, but I want to grow organic so I'm only going to use the big bloom, might try grow big and tiger bloom on one out of the four to see the yield/taste difference, but I'm not sure of that yet. A question about feeding times: when going by the 12-week chart, do I follow the first or the last eight weeks? Also, how much air do germinating seeds need, because they're just in there with only the passives at the moment. Temps and humidity are stable, luckily, but that's only with the lights off. As I say they're still germinating (I hope), so I won't post pics yet, but I'll be putting some of those up the second they show, also with updates on how my temp lowering strats go. Thanks for reading guys, hopefully I'll have lots of good news over the next couple of months.
