DIY Hydroponics Grow Closet Upgrades (DWC) | My First Grow 11

In this video I show how I deal with high humidity by installing a vent through my DIY blackout curtain wall. I also attempt another super crop and I show the progress on the growing buds! I am running these two plants in my DIY DWC Hydroponics setup. This is my first grow so I am certainly doing some things wrong! Let me know if you have any feedback for me.

    Hi #Smart Grow Automation , I really like your vids. When you want to bend the outer stems down to open the crown, you can glue coins onto sprung clothes pegs and clip the pegs so the big hole intended for gripping the clothes line, goes around the stem. This places even stress along the whole stem. I'm not familiar with U.S coinage weights, but in the U.K our 2P weighs 1/4 ounce, and a penny is 1/8th ounce. Doing it this way removes the risk of snapping, and introduucing infection. I hope this helps. Thanks for the vids, long may they continue. Stay safe. Kind regards, Ve

    Your pressing too hard. Hold with two hands and twist opposite with each hand. You will feel it give, them you bend gradually each day. I use trellis and pipe cleaners. Also you need to put your humidifier or dehumidifier on a timer each day to lower the humidity. And your using live microbes, amino acids, fungi etc. via your nutrients! That’s why you shake it well before you use it.

    Mate 10 out ov 10 for effort but youd do better investing in a tent spending cash that can be saved also not having a dig but do bit of homework making so many mistakes that can easily be turned around and by look of them leaves they look sativa dominant so maybe look above 8 weeks bit longer may fill out like sativas do youre getting there man takes time we all go through it never ending learning curve good luck
