Indoor Cannabis Garden Update

Hello Everyone,

Things have been coming along wonderfully in the cannabis tent. I've recently upgraded the soil medium, which can be seen here in this post, and have added a homemade humidifier, which can be seen in video format in my post yesterday.

Today I trimmed up the plants and added some more of these LST clips.

Since I just fixed them in place before snapping the photos, the foliage is bent down horizontally, but in my next garden update they will be facing upwards reaching for the light.

The stalks are nice and girthy. A sign that they are receiving adequate light after upgrading to the Phlizon, which boasts the Samsung LED's, and is proving to be a very nice light for this tent. I've been running it at fifty percent power with no need to increase just yet. Come flowering time, I'm going to try maximum power if the plants can handle it.

I've emulated the four stalk system with the other plant as well. It's a little taller, but they are both pretty close in size.

Keeping an even canopy is ideal in a small grow space, and the LST clips make this much easier to achieve.

Of the three smaller plants in the back, this one is the furthest to the right.

This is the plant in the center.

And this beauty is all the way on the left. My favorite of the smaller three.

These are the trimmings I removed today, very healthy foliage.

I added another ultrasonic atomizer (mister) to the humidifier, (I highlighted them in the photo) and it's working great. The reading on digital display is not an accurate depiction of how well this thing works. The next photo shows the reading with the tent closed. I took it through the window to maintain the humidity.

Eighty one percent in this photo, and I've had it up to eighty five percent as my highest humidity reading thus far. Not bad for a homemade humidifier!

Even cooler, is this power supply I have with a USB on/off switch. I didn't inline a switch for the fan, so this makes it easy to turn it on and off at will, without unplugging it. With just seeping humidity, the tent stays around fifty five percent, which is not bad compared to the thirty percent I had without the humidifier. To give it a quick jump in humidity after having the tent open, I can just run that fan for a few minutes and then turn it off. This is ideal because that is a cheap motor and I don't think it will last long under these conditions. I plan to upgrade this unit in the future with better parts and an inlet hose.

I also just received some Flower Fuel, Flower Stacker, and soil PH test strips. These products have very good reviews, and I'm looking forward to trying them out.

That will do it for this indoor cannabis garden update.

What do you all think of how the plants are coming along? I would love to read your thoughts in the comment section below.

Your time is a valuable commodity, and I always keep this in mind and do my best to respond to everyone.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day! -@futuremind

Wicked grow!

You could pick up a cheap smart plug and turn on and off the fan on a schedule! ( on for 10 min.. off for 10 min .. etc )

Thanks man!

That's a pretty great idea actually :)

Mayhaps I will.

This is my kind of science and engineering. It's looking fantastic!

Those clips look perfect! Nice work man. You should sell them here for Weed or Hive

Thanks man!

I have twelve dozen printed in two different sizes currently that I'm planning to send to you at the beginning of the month, for your own use and if you want to add some to your gift packs when you send seeds or other things to people.

I don't know if there is a high demand for these here, but you do a better job at seeing more of the cannabis posts, so if you know anyone who is looking for a bulk order, please direct them to me and I'll print them up and will send at a fair price.

The amount of time and effort spent on this, clearly is the ingredient that makes your hand greener than mine. I have always telling people I can't plant, for whatever I try to plant, the plant is dead, for 1 reason - passion. Which I don't have, in terms of planting. Good job.

Finally, the cana-curate batch looks super badass.

Thanks so much bro, I try my best and put a lot of time, thought, and effort into it. I'm hoping the harvest to come will be one of my best ever!

I didn't realize you were a grower. I have never seen a humidifier setup like that before, very cool. Is is because space is an issue and there isn't anything commercially available that small, or perhaps the thing you've built works much better? I assume the latter is correct.

Yeah man I've been a cannabis grower for a few years now but didn't start blogging about it until the unlawful law in New York was lifted.

I built this little humidifier as a way to save money lol. I just Google searched "how to make a homemade humidifier for gardening" and people were already using these cheap misters, so I ordered one online for 15 dollars and it works great. The company sent me some used broken one that I had to solder, and sent me a replacement free of charge that was also in used condition after my complaint. Oh well.. I got two used for the price of one new. I'll take that bargain.

Overall it works well enough, but I might make a better one in the future with some 3D printed components and better fans with an inlet hose, which will save space in the small tent.

Lots of work for you, I hope the rewards will be "intoxicatingly high" ha ha.

Thanks Jerry, I hope so too lol.

The biggest hurdle for me is the wait time between harvests, because cannabis for me has been akin to a life saving medicine in so many ways.

For one, it was the plant that helped me once and for all beat my daily addiction with drinking, which was landing me in hospitals and ravaged my life in so many other ways, which I'm aware you know the story so I won't go deep into it.

The hardest realization was the battle with trying to get help through clinical outlets, and them diminishing my belief that cannabis would help me by stating I was still an addict if I supplemented it over the well documented (in negative ways) legal substances that were killing me, pharmas included.

Realization in the form of knowing that those who were trying to help were genuinely trying to help under the indoctrinated "facts" they had been taught in college/training. (Wasn't their fault, they were genuine in their willingness to help.)

It wasn't until a psychologist told me behind closed doors that my thinking was accurate and to just do what I knew would help that I found the healing in this endeavor, after four unsuccessful attempts with rehabilitation and psychiatry for the underlying mental health aspects which influenced the additive behaviors to begin with.

It's a lengthy topic of course, with many more variables/aspects to consider, but the intoxicating effect of cannabis is rather enjoyable and harmless, and doesn't leave me collapsing and smashing my head on concrete, so yeah I love it! :D

Have a great day my friend.
