I am setting myself up for both. Dirt scares me because of the potential for bugs. My brain is ticking though. I once knew a guy who used hydroton and hand watered. Sounds like a recipe for disaster because of my unpredictable work schedule.

Enjoy that harvest!

don’t be afraid of the soil or bugs

just be prepared…use good soil like ProMix and get some Monterey Spinosad and Pyganic just in case
I like soil now , bugs are not that big of a problem with soil
Its the nasty mites I am most worried about and that is most likely brought into the room by infected clones or not being careful when coming in from outside if your other plants have mites were you are during normal grow season and then go dormant.
H ell I gotten all kinds of nasty things in my coco too.

Thank you all my great new friends from the passion who helped or gave advice or just a simple thumbs up. The whole 60/60 thing to me was new, worked great and this stuff is devastating. Onward to the mason jars. Corporate Illinois farms got nothing on this stuff.

Anyone got a quick answer on the disadvantages of Low RH during early Veg. I can purchase a humidifier and will if necessary. And that's the question, Is it necessary? AVG High 21 and low 16. And of course I will search threads HERE. ???????????? Suppose to be Blackberry Kush. AT least that's what the outside of the package said.

we deal with very low humidity out here, I’ve seen it below 10

its not unusual to have 3-4 months of 10-25% humidity

i do not see any disadvantages to growing in low humidity

I do see an advantage , very slim chance of mold and bud rot

blackberry kush sounds like good medicine but it truly depends on the source of the blackberry and the kush

im supposed to be getting some herijuana x blueberry that is the real deal as I know the source of the breeding

all the best!

I've been fighting low humidity this whole grow. When I gave up the battle, turned the humidifier off and dropped my temp to 75° a couple days ago, my plants perked up and are doing better.

Not real scientific, but in my opinion, 21% at 75ish degrees is actually doing better than it was at 80-85° while trying to get the rh higher.

Usually they are darker green. I'm not going to freak out just yet. I have been and plan on staying a little lighter with the nutrients this time around for now. Last batch burns clean, no problems. In my spare time I spend time on old grow threads here just watching the banter back and forth. I be hollering at everyone if something comes up. I PM'd Boo last night, he probably been busy. My adjuster has went out already and my lights are stuck at 100% which is fine with me for the next 2 months. I will be getting in touch with the company I bought it from later today.

Sure was weird removing all them giant solar panels. Work until Wed. Should get to hang with everyone Friday. Your doing it wrong... All of it.

The old blurples - fresh fox farm happy frog - 4 Gorilla Blue from advanced seeds and 1 auto strawberry snow cone from elev8 - The only thing I might do is start PH'ing the water. 12/12 Just started... This is a just for fun experiment. Kind of a neglected step child grow.
