    Hey folks. Im back again with another indoor grow setup. I have a 5x5 vivo tent. It has 3 sided access which is a big improvement over my last tent. I have a 600 cfm fan blowing out the hot air stacked with a appropriate sized carbon filter. Fresh air is brought in through the central ac. I had to add the ac duct because of high temps in the tent (84-86f). It is now a cozy 78 degrees. I am using a kind xl 1000 light. It is on full blast at this point for 24 hours. According to my light meter i am at 50000ish lumens at the tops of the plants. I am 34 inches from the tops.
    The hydro system is a flood table using promix, smart pots, and gen. Hydroponics nutes. Im using 8ml of micro and 16ml of bloom per gallon of water. Also 50 ml total of calmag. I have a 50 gallon reservoir. This puts my ppms around 1150. My ph has stabilized around the 5.85 to 6.1 range. I will add more nutes as needed during flower.
    The plants are very happy at this point. The first three plants are sweet amnesia, blackberry og, and purple moby ****. I have better seeds to use but i was growing thru some freebies that were about 3 years old. They popped out of the ground on sept 1 and are now at 18 days old. They had some growing pains due to a ph spike early on. They have all been fimmed and are already branching well. I will probably add a screen to keep an even canopy with the different strains. Sweet amnesia looks like a runner. Will update once a week or as interesting things happen.

    Week 3 of veg. Or day 21. Happy with the overal growth. Sweet amnesia is showing tip burns so I'm backing down the nutes 200 ppm. Ph is steady. Temps are avg around 77 degrees. Purple moby had some heat stress from before, which is why the leaves are twisted or tacoed. I have installed a frame for a scrog net as well.

    Day 25.
    76 degrees. Ph is 6.01. Ppms are brought down to 900. Saturday ends the fourth week of veg. The screen is in place and i am ready to start growing horizontally. Sweet amnesia is the biggest plant. She loves the led. The moby and blackberry are very squat with extremely tight inter nodal spacing. I would guess that sweet amnesia is going to take over the screen in the next couple of weeks. I may need to add another light. I have 2 king 1200 leds. I may add them to the back of the tent to fill out my 5x5 footprint better. 5x5 is a weird size. Just about very light out there is made for 2x4 or 4x4. I may be better served having several medium sized lights rather than a single kind xl1000. Oh well. I will decide when the time comes.

    End of week 4. Showing some discoloration on 2 of the plants. I think i cold stressed them by having the ac blow directly at them. Also i noticed some wet leaves. I dont spray in there and i have no chance of a leak. The only thing i can think of is the pump is shooting water up when it first turns on getting nutrient solution on the plants...which would burn and discolor the leaves. I also raised my light a few inches higher.
    The plants are all neat little bushes. They are beginning to spread under the net very well. All if them have very tight internodal spacing. No alternating nodes yet. I dont think i will have to veg more than about 10 to 14 more days to get my net full. I havent seen any pre flowers yet either. So i will wait until they show maturity before i flip.
    Strangely. My res has dropped in ph over the last few days and my ppms have gone up 100 points.
    Temps range from 74f to 79f. Still have the lights on 24 hours a day. I will need to hang some more light in there. Back in the old days i would have put 3 600 watt hps in there and called it a day. Im trying to figure out the best way to light this 25sq ft with led.
