Well It is not going as expected. Plants are alive and seems happy, but not growing like sativas. They are short and bushy and leaves do not show typical sativa strain traits. Still have hope for these girls. Following ACE seeds recommendations I keep them under strong light. They sits under 480w of lm301b, 24hrs a day 7 days a week and take it like it's some CFL! Like I said last week, I am giving them a last week of vegetation and I will flip.
Beside that I am giving them a corona beer metal bucket each (looks like some 1.5gal...) of rain water every 4-5 days to keep medium moist all around and plants do not show signs of over or under watering.

What is your security/safety backup for fire hazard in case of exhaust system failure. (those Chinese fans you know they will break it is only a matter of time right?)

it doesn't hurt to give appliances 20-30min to cool down, every 24hrs if i remember i try to give everything a chance to cool down, this should help the longevity, and also mitigate a overheat/fire issue, like @Hudson2384 said, if you're worried just buy another fan, worth it just for the piece of mind, and you'll have this for a spare if the other one dies, but as long as you have a name brand or something you trust, if it breaks, it assume there is fail safes on most UL, ETL rated stuff. I feel you though, I'm pretty iffy about by appliances from the internet.

But most of my fans, are bought online. I mean if you really wanted to you could mount it in a "homemade" oven, toss it in a bbq or something, and have the ducting in one side, and out the other, with the fan itself contained in a fireproof container lol probably should stop smoking.
Astral answered grow question 6 months ago
Personally I'm a first timer using a 600w MH, and gonna be using 1000w, 600w, I've bought a big fire extinguisher for outside and a small one for inside the room, outside the tent and i put a fire alarm near the exhaust exit outside, had a few false alarms and not sure if the speed of the fan would push the smoke to quick, which makes me think i should test that, but i plan to also add fire alarm inside and outside the tent i guess. Better safe then sorry, but i was thinking fires would be if a bulb breaks the 1000w is magnetic I've also bought surge/GFI Power bars, that might help, Is your fan ETL or UL marked? if so check against their listings see if its real, if it is, you're probably good.

Wanted to mention since its there, you have a lot of slack in your hose, maybe you cant mount the fan?and go straight across it seems like you could in the picture and saves so much floor space u got pretty high ceilings I have been using eye bolts, into the roof, minimal damage, easy to putty later and was using para cord, now i got carabiner lol and Vivosun rope pulleys can go climbing lol but every 30Degree bend you lose 20% efficiency and the extra distance is costing you efficiency as well "The sharper the bend, the harsher the efficiency reduction; a 30° bend cuts the amount of airflow by 20% while a 90° bend diminishes airflow by 60%! Smoothing out any wrinkles can also improve fan performance and airflow." https://www.acinfinity.com/blog/how-to-calculate-required-cfm-for-a-grow-tent/

plants are too small
5 days after flip I am realising my plants are too short. What is going to happen if I switch back to 24-0? Are they gonna be stunted for long?

You can re-veg her. Takes her long to flower. Revenging is no issue.

Pre-flowered buds will turn to leave and later small useless branches. These will need to be trim off.

Good luck
Mr_Weeds_Autos answered grow question 6 months ago
honestly, I wouldn't advise it most plants seem to hermie when the light schedule is switched after being flipped into flower, this will cause stress.
CheckThoseTrichs answered grow question 6 months ago
Heya!

If you have strong genetics it shouldn't hermie and should go back to the veg state. Last time I re-vegged a plant that was already showing pistils it took about 2-3 weeks to start showing solid growth again. I don't think this will be the case with yours as you're only a week in.

Cheers and good luck!

What a shitload of shit is this amazon bought Super Soil! N and P deff crawling up on those small seedings in 15gal watered with rain and lake water is unacceptable! Feels like I sold my soul to to the devil au revoir Organic bye bye just top dressed with GAIA GREEN POWER BLOOM at manufacture recommendation. Hops THIS can put a STOP at those uninvited deficiencies.

@sativaman, never buy soil from Amazon. Coco brick on sale maybe.
The best media is coco.
You can amend it with dry organic amendments like dr earth and research the rest. You can top dress or use liquid ferts from there.
Coco holds water and oxygen doesnt block roots.
Supersoil is hot and anything with too much organic is mushy crap ure roots have to work to loosen.
Coco trust me.
