It’s six degrees below zero outside, so the warmth and brightness of the LED and tent is appreciated even more today. Miss my old HID lighting on these days.
Time for another update on the Purple Ghost Candy….the plant that I converted to SCROG. She’s a Sativa-leaning plant in a 48” tent.
I will start flowering today. Since she is now under a SCROG net and will be difficult to move, I decided to remove the AC Infinity self-watering wick base. I will water this plant traditionally from the top. I wouldn’t be able to remove the reservoir for regular cleanings if I left it in place. No water or nutrients needed. Reservoir water was at 850ppm and 7.0 ph when I removed it.
Self watering bases with 1/4 inch wicks shown below. I really liked them based on a limited experience. I will continue to use them in the 2x4 tent. They could benefit from a “testing hole” where you could drop your ph pen or PPM meter into the well to check the reservoir without removing the plant. I’m going to get out the dremel tool and play with it on my spare unit.
I’m flipping this small 2x2 tent to flower today out of fear that this plant could outgrow the tent. Light intensity increased from 80 to 90 percent on dimmer. Light still 17 inches above canopy. Let the stretch begin.
