Target Vapor Pressure Deficit (VPD): 1.3-1.4kPa

Sorry for the late post, I have been super busy lately. This is the final week. Trichomes turned into a harvestable state, so also expect the Harvest post to come soon. I thought maybe there would have been one more week to go, but the trichomes are looking whiter now.

RECAP OF THE GROW SO FAR:

Target VPD for the week 1-2 seedling cycle was 0.7kPa.
Target VPD for the week 3-4 veg cycle was 1.0kPa.
Target VPD for the week 5+ flower cycle is 1.3-1.4kPa.

If you’ve been following, you know that I undershot how much living soil to use and ran out of nutrients earlier in the flower cycle. All the leaves yellowed and the buds stopped increasing in size. I was out of town too much to fix the situation right away, so I estimate I lost almost 3 weeks of bud growth which will hurt my yield substantially. Also, please note that it isn’t the fault of the KIS Organics living soil that I am using - it was my underestimation of the volume that I needed. I also shouldn’t have added so much perlite.

I ran to the nearest hardware store and picked up “Espoma Organic Tomato!” liquid tomato plant food. Well… it worked! I got green back in my leaves and the buds started growing again. All in all, my yield will be hurt, but I’m glad to be back on track.

GROW SETUP (For extended explanations of why I went these routes, see my Week 1 entry):

GROWING MEDIUM:

- Kis Organics: Water Only Soil with Biochar (50%)
- Espoma: Organic Perlite (50%)

KIS Organics Water Only Soil with Biochar is a living organic compost soil that would have been enough nutrients for the plant through the whole grow if I didn’t underestimate how much to use.

TENT:

- Gorilla Grow Tent: Lite Line, 4’x4’

WATERING SYSTEM:

- Autopots: Smart Pot XL

The Autopot is a bottom watering unit that uses a float system to turn the water flow on and off. I used it for the weeks when I was out of town, and it kept the plant alive.

SUPPLEMENTS:

- General Hydroponics: CaMg+ (just a little bit)
- KIS Organics: Nutrient Pack (4th week top dressing)
- Real Growers: Recharge (only if needed)
- Growcentia: Mammoth P (1 week before & during flower)

LIGHTING:

- Kind LED: K5 XL1000

Every light cycle stage is/was programmed with a sunrise and sunset mode where the light intensity starts low and increases, peaks, and then gradually dims before shut off. During week 1 and 2 I ran with a lower intensity and bluer color, and the actual watt average during the light cycle was only at 238W. For week 3 and 4 I changed my light to autorun mode, which is a stronger intensity but still has more blue during the light cycle, and the average light wattage in this cycle is 451W. Autorun mode is the Kind LED K5 XL1000’s default factory setting for a standard sunrise to sunset veg cycle. When I changed to the flower cycle at week 5 I programmed for full spectrum and intensity, but still with a sunrise and sunset ramp up and down. The actual average wattage during the flower cycle is 525W.

HUMIDITY CONTROL (I usually run dry):

- Elechomes: UC5501 Ultrasonic Humidifier

VENTILATION:

- AC Infinity: Cloudline T6

CO2:

- 2x Exhale: The XL

MONITORING:

- Pulse One: Temp, RH, and VPD monitor over WiFi
- Hydrofarm: CO2 Monitor

I really like the Pulse One monitor. It really helps me to keep everything dialed in at all times. The graphing feature is a really great addition because I can now see how bad the environment of the tent would have been without some fine tuning.

I fimmed about a week before flipping the lights, and it seemed to recover nicely. I’m still on the fence about fimming at this time though, since I think the plant would have turned out about the same anyway.

Grow Questions
DoctorPhilgood week 3 started grow question 3 months ago
LED lighting makes badly colored pictures. Used to take my pots out of the tent, but my new watering system makes that a mess. My shop drop-light makes the leaves a weird light green. What type of lighting do you use for in-tent shots? Best answer to a cheap light but great pics.

Your photos look good as far as I can see. I used to switch my red blue led off for photos and hung in a standard energy saving light with 4000k to take photos.
