    I haven't been that active lately, so I figured I'd share some pictures.

    These 28 plants are 4 weeks into 12/12 and they're having 7600W of HPS shining on them.

    Strain is Critical Kush by The Barney's Farm.

    They didn't leave much room for me though...

    Can't wait to see them getting bigger!

    You should see how much effort it takes to water them. About 150 liters of water every two days and then pumping out the run-off water from the plates with a vacuum cleaner. Must design a drainage system next time!

    I have to move like a dog under the plants...

    But I only care about maximum results.

    Nice garden! Hand watering indoor cannabis is a labour of love and an essential part of the process. You learn a lot by spending time in the room with the plants.
    If you've got enough height in that room to raise the plants up on to corrugated plástic you can slide a couple of low-profile plástic tanks under the plants and pump out the run-off at the flick of a switch, or use pumps with a float- valve.
    Hoovering water out of individual saucers will never get easier my friend... Don't suffer without cause.

    Nice work on cleaning up the plants :super:

    Awesome garden Vibe. Why do you pump out the trays? As long as they soak it up within 24 hours or so it's fine to leave it there. What kind of ac are you using?

    I built a raised stand to hold a flood and drain table that I could fit a 5 gal bucket under.
    I'd over water about 5%-10% each water/feed and catch the runoff for all the plants in the bucket.
    I had another bucket in case the first got too full. It made things much easier.

    At one point I had to move all my plants. I had to "over-make" the entire grow by finding a new building for this thing.

    I just didn't have enough time to make plans and I haven't really done this before, so...

    Next time I will definitely design a drainage system!

    Btw, I'm not using an AC. I'm using an extractor fan that is ventilating the room.

    Thanks for the tip, Rogue. I have had a similar idea.

    Here are few pictures of some of the buds. They are 6 weeks into 12/12.

    I seem to be having a humidity issue and I'm not sure what to do about it.

    RH varies greatly, but for most of the time it stays between 50 and 60 %. Sometimes it's as high as 75% (lights off) and sometimes it's as low as 40% (lights on).

    I wouldn't like to risk losing my crop for the mold, but the ventilation of the room is about 1 air exchange per minute and the room is 35 cubic meters big, so there's quite a lot of air movement.

    I'm worried that a dehumidifier might not be able to have any noticeable effect on RH in that high flow of air.

    Yeah I would say 75% is a little high. As far as I can tell a dehumidifier is the only option. How about going with less air exhaust during the lights off cycle and the dehumidifier controlled to only come on if it gets like above 60%? Might work for ya. I always ran AC and dehumidifiers in air tight rooms when I did bigger grows. Had co2 burners also so no air exchanges at all.
