Funny you should say that was thinking the other day must help having oxygen be able to get all around the pot

 

 

Yep, that was my thinking too.  :)

Good job on the cabinet setup. Reminds me mine needs a few upgrades!

 

Hopefully you'll have a decent yield as i did pretty well with my diyled 65w board.

Wow just found this thread, Ive been having the same idea and wandering if its worth pursuing it, from your results so far it looks like a safe bet. Will definitely be following.

Howdy doodies boobies. 

 

I'm all over this. 

Just adore your cabinet. 

 

What's the total cost for the setup? 

Also, your intake is a 12v pc fan right? How come you didn't opt for a pasave intake, given the fact you've got quite a big extract fan for the size of cab. 

Can't wait to see how this fares in the winter. 

 

Utterly jealous of your setup of course, really nice  bit of work.

Just had a look at this light o  the website and to say my jaw hit the floor would be an understatement. 

£80!? 

:scared:

 

Is that it? 

 

For as good a light as you could expect to put into micro grow  that's ridiculous. 

 

The "minigrow" complete cabinet costs a grand. 

 

An arguement could be made that that yours is more stealthy, better equipped and likely to outperform seedo/minigrow boxes. 

How much money you've saved!! 

Probably pays for itself in a couple of grows! 

 

Aww man this shit is so depressing. Why can't my garage have fucking power to it!!  Oh the pipedream! 

Fuck diddly fuck. 

 

You're living the dream dude

Sup @Ned Flanders

 

Cheers buddy, I would estimate the total cost of the setup to be about £200. The 4" rvk fan is running 24hr on setting 2 on the wac1 controller.. the pc fans are plugged into the "cold" plug on the ink bird controller and is set so if my cabinet reaches 30c the intake and outake pc fans then kick in bringing the temp down automatically. When they aren't running which is most of the time my intake is passive.

 

Yeah man these lights are a micro growers wet dream lol couldn't be more perfect and like you say at a bargain price.

 

So far it's completely smell and noise proof so you could sneak one in the house somewhere <_<

Some stacked real nice..

Think I timed the flip bang on, plenty of head room at the moment..

Only thing that's a pest at the moment is fungus gnats. Other than that all good so far! 

 

:hippy:

week 4 flower/flip

 

well we're are at week 4 and I have bad news to report! The dicks gone and hermied on me :doh: pollen chucked an all!

 

Sprayed the plant and removed all the Nana's I could see. Will keep an eye on it but by the looks of the pistills turning brown I wonder if the damage has been done.

I used cable ties on the stem to stop the split and they've dug into the plant maybe those to factors stressed her out.

 

Shame she was looking really good

large.rps20200709_195951.jpglarge.rps20200709_200001.jpg

 

Any advice on the best moves from now on? I'm assuming I just keep going and see what happens..

Crap luck mate,

Soft plant ties in future just in case.

 

how long did it have to go/ have you got something ready that could take over?

Mate I had the same thing happen with my Sweet Seeds Lemon Kush (photoperiod) it's really disappointing.

 

I ripped mine out asap but people have just picked the nana's and persevered and come away with some smoke not sure how seeded though depends how viable the pollen is.

 

Contact @Sweet Seeds Apolo he'll help you with reporting the problem to them.

Interesting @Exhale the plant hasn't shown any signs of stress and there hasn't been any environmental stresses to trigger or light leaks so did wonder if it could be a trait from this new strain.. who knows. I will certainly be keeping an eye on the one iv got growing outdoors!

 

I will keep going to see what happens being a single plant grow with no back up iv got nothing to lose.. thought it was going to smoothly lol

 

It's still got another 3 weeks left @Shumroom and haven't got back ups no so will get what I get :doh:

Ahh that's shit luck!

 

I suppose you may as well let it finish, as there's only a few weeks left and no back up you can at least let it go too completion then either sift or alcohol wash the final result to get the good stuff minus the seeds.

 

Definitely let the sweetseed reps know what's happened though :yep:
