Hello Growmies, As we conclude the sixth week with our Epic Buzz plants in the Tent-X Ultimate Grow Showdown, we've seen substantial growth and faced some climatic challenges head-on. The plants have thrived under a regimen of defoliation, lollipopping, and scrogging, developing into robust specimens ready for the flowering stage. The extended watering intervals and the consistent application of our chosen nutrient blend, Alga Grow, Sugar Royal, Power Roots, and Orca, have supported their vigorous development, ensuring they are well-nourished and hydrated. However, managing the environmental conditions, particularly during the night, has presented some hurdles. The recent introduction of a custom-built extraction box has been our latest strategy to combat the high humidity levels we've been battling during the lights-off period. This innovative solution has shown promising results, offering a more controlled grow atmosphere by extracting humid air directly outside, preventing it from lingering in the lung area of our setup. Despite this improvement, the integration of the Mars Hydro fan with the Tent-X system remains unresolved, leading to less than ideal fluctuations in our VPD levels. The lack of support from Mars Hydro, Secret Jardin, and even TrolMaster in providing clear guidance for this integration has been a stumbling block. We're considering a shift back to the reliable Prima Clima system, known for its seamless compatibility and ease of use. In the spirit of community and shared growth, we're reaching out for any advice on connecting a 5-phased PWM motor to the TrolMaster controller. The collective wisdom of this community has always been a guiding light, and any insights would be greatly appreciated. The resilience of the Epic Buzz plants, their lush canopies, and strong structures speak volumes of their potential as we edge closer to the flowering phase. With a mix of innovation, community support, and a bit of grower's grit, we're navigating these challenges, committed to providing the best care for our plants. Stay Lifted, Salokin

@nonick123, thank you buddy, with that tent x controller I can work on my cable management a bit, turned out a bit to messy for my liking right now ;)

Una configuración muy chula para evitar la humedad ambiental Yo lo que hago es aumentar la potencia / tiempo de encendido del extractor. Llego a mantenerlo por debajo de 55% (mi humedad ambiental exterior es de alrededor del 60% Si con la extracción no puedes controlar la humedad, lo que te recomendaría para controlar la humedad es colocar un deshumidificador en la sala / armario de cultivo Como eres MUY habil tienes varias opciones: - Conectarlo al TrollMaster para que se encienda el deshumidificador cuando se supera el % humedad deseado - Conectarlo a una regleta con sensor de humedad y configurar el % humedad deseado - Conectarlo a una regleta inteligente y apagarlo / encenderlo a tu antojo Siento no poder ayudarte con tu duda de como conectar el motor PWM de 5 fases al controlador TrolMaster. Se escapa mis conocimientos

@nonick123, hi Buddy, so yesterday night I increased my fan speed manually by 10% (from25% to 35%) and it did wonders until now, managed to get an extra -15% of in humidity down from 75% down to 60% humidity. Will post the chart shortly. So it actually looks like the extraction only could work once controlled by the tent x and no additional dehumidifier needed 🤞.

@nonick123, thanks for the detailed reply buddy, will try to stay up until 1 am and try to manually boost the inline fan, as the I fresh from mars hydro, does not react on my humidity at all , as what they advertise, it only reacts on temperature, even though I can set a humidity parameter.. Will invest into a proper inline fan once the next paycheck is in. As the extraction out the window at same extraction speed already gave me great results. So let’s see what happens once the fan is connnected to the controller. If that still won’t do the job I will decrease lung room RH, as I don’t have any space in the tent unless a plant won’t make it.

Super interest setup 👍 I take a seat and watch the show 😎 please keep us up to date with your settings because it's really interesting for me 😅 Good luck and happy growing growmie 🌱

@KrautFabrik, thanks for passing by and the kind words. Will keep you all updated on the settings once I get another extension to connect my heater and humidifier.

It’s difficult to keep that VPD perfect, the larger the plant the more easy it becomes. I believe greatest influence on it is outside humidity. Nonick123 is spot on!
Salokin
Salokin
@Still_Smoq, outside humidity would be up next, I would decrease lung room humidity, as I don’t have any space in the tents anyways. And then sucking in dry air should work too… let’s see first I need that fan connected to the controller before I would buy a dehumidifier big enough too tackle my lung room. Coming with the electricity bill of a dehumidifier running quite a bit.

Sounds like your setup has given the ability to perfect Mother Nature! Sweet!

@Still_Smoq, Thanks buddy, we are getting close. online fan still missing, but hopefully that will be resolved soon.

@Still_Smoq, I am a data geek so a system like the tent x is definitely right down my alley. Only the inline fan missing and then we will be yet another step closer to Mother Nature. So far I like what the system is doing :)

I was asking the same stuff, did u get how to connect the 5-phase PWM motor to the TrolMaster controller?
Salokin
Salokin
@DeepWaterGrower, not really, I have attached a picture of my back up fan from secret jardin, that I had as aback up and broke in the process of connecting it (so be careful). They schematics don’t really explain much either. If I can’t figure it out I’ll might opt for this one : “Prima Klima PK160 EC-blue” which has an RJ45 connector build in… please do let me know though once you figured it out. I already have their fan controller….

@DeepWaterGrower, waiting for two more little gadgets and then the controller should be in charge of the environment in it’s totality;)
