Finally -- I've started cookin'

I’m stoked. Finally, after all the weeks of research, building the grow room, talking to everyone here … I’ve got White Widow Auto into the pods and under the dome. Day 1 Down :sunglasses:

Looking good, while seedlings thrive on high RH, better get that down before fully vegging or flowering.

I’ve got it now. The pods dried a little more quickly than I thought they would. I spray three times a day now and keep a constant 80-85 RH. Phew. Do you think these are too leggy (day four, 1.5 inches tall)? My PAR is between 220 and 255

Just alittle bit, They are stretching just slightly. Here is a base line chart to help you out. Along with a RH chart based on temperature.

RH chart for temp range.

So, I should bump the light up. I had 200 to 300 as the range. I’m going to kick it up.

Ooooo, my RH is pretty good based on this then.

I keep mine around 375-400 range on seedlings. Just to avoid stretch, but I’m using a cheap light so just use some sort of light meter to measure.

I have an iPhone app that’s great to measure PAR. But I’m way low compared to you and I don’t want stretch. Lowering the light now.

Ya around 75%RH for your seedling age is appropriate, but will decrease as they age. Just use the guide and you should be set. Don’t overwater also lol.

Photone? you’re using a defuser correct?

What height are you at now? I usually keep mine around 9-12"

Got it. Looking for my happy balance. I just bumped the light up and I’m going to get humidity down to 75-80 (tops).

I was at 25 inches to get 250 PAR. I just dropped to about 17 and I’m getting readings of 320 - 350 outside the dome and about 320 inside. Will adjust again this evening to get to high 300s. Don’t want to shock 'em too much.

Yep that my jam. Love the app.

Same, damn good app. Use it daily.

They got way too hot when I moved the light down. So the light went up but so did the % – from 25 to 50% of light power. Now the temps have stabilized and they have not stretched more. Phew. Thank you.

Ya that’s why the photone app is a lifesaver, gives you the ppdf immediately to get it dialed in.

Question for you and @MDBuds and @Daddy1971 and @retiredoldguy – do you think there is something wrong with this plant. I’m on day 10 – leaves are showing a little yellow. Too much water or light? Or am I overreacting as usual? Sorry it’s blurry – I had to reduce the size of the image.

You need to get them in some soil ASAP @GrnyGrows
