    My Melkor fridge

    Well its time I started my own thread as I have been procrastinating for awhile now so lets introduce The Melkor Fridge!
    She is running a 100 Watt CMH bulb no tube or divider needed at this time.
    I have a Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan
    Fan Size 120mm
    Bearing Type Sleeve
    RPM 3000 ±10% RPM
    Air Flow 133.60 CFM
    Noise Level 45.90 dBA
    pumping through my modified HTG supply can filter
    I striped apart the filter by drilling the rivets afterwards cutting it down 6 inches and reassembling it. fits perfectly now and looks factory now that it is back together.
    My ventilation is set up to create negative pressure in the cab with the bottom ports hidden under the pot racks.
    zero light leakage this way.
    I do have to reposition the light as you can see it is a bit off center but throws off so much light I haven't worried about it much.

      The ladies or hopefully ladies are
      kalichakra
      strawberry cough
      and as my chimera did not pop I opted for give my freebie
      skunkman OH x S1 a go.
      As you can see I made rookie mistakes as the Strawberry cough first set of leaves are pretty pissed.
      I used distilled water instead of plain old tap water and as my SC are very temperamental they freaked just like last time but I have realized the error of my ways and corrected this just before transplant.

        Thanks for stopping in,
        Temps in the cab range from 71 to 77 as the weather has cooled off bigtime up here

        As this is a cab in a cab with my ballast sitting out the external temp has gone as high as 103 which I still maintained a 81 degree in the chamber so I am pretty excited about that.

            My dilema's at this point are
            A.) do I veg them out longer and take cuttings as I still have my T5 Ho set up and just in need of plugging in. Then 12-12 the fridge to see what is what
            B.) Flip them now figure out what is what and reveg after.

            I am leaning toward option B as I am currently out of smokable and really would like something for the holidays to give away to all the good boys and girls that I allow to share in my bountiful harvest with..

            I am currently in talks with one of my saltwater fish buddies to make my an Acrylic box to go fogger with.

                My goal is a perpetual head stash as I am not in this for profit and I could always veg them out long enough that I could have a decent head stash once the go full term.
                Thanks for stopping by and putting in you $.02

                  Wow very nice work Which model Can was it before you cut it down? How much did you cut out?

                  About your dilemma, I ain't had to worry about that stuff much, and I'm lazy so I would just flip and reveg. But wouldn't you actually achieve harvest quicker if you do option A? Reverting a plant's thinking takes time.

                    Thanks for dropping in Scrub!
                    It was the Can 33 and I cut about 6 or 7 inches out..
                    I kept what I cut out for creating a PC filter someday.
                    I am thinking along your ideals now that I chat it out loud Just vegging them until I get a nice big cut and flipping them afterwards would still give me a decent amount of smoke for the holidays I think.
                    I am A closet toker and the people that do know I toke are just party tokers so they don't purchase.
                    Its fine though I just got lazy and didn't have my act together for a new harvest when I started running low.

                      My pleasure man. I never even thought about cutting down a carbon filter! Great idea. I'm just thinking about your situation now. I don't know if you've heard of it, or if it is even useful info to you, but 11/13? By all accounts it's a reduced yield, but it's meant to take a week or so off flower time with hid lights. I only mention it since there could be time issues perhaps and you mentioned you're not Cheech or Chong

                      Thanks for the info!

                        Hey Huggie bear
                        Nice fridge man! Looking forward to your grow and subscribing!

                        On your dilema, i would, and i am, going with option A.
                        Take some clones, flower them and see what is what... throw away males, or keep good one for seeds.
                        Make some bonsai moms out of your best plants and go perpetual

                          I wish I could have cheech and chong sessions like back in my glory but until the man cave is constructed I will have to wait!

                          Hmm option a with an 11/13 cycle sounds like plan! Do you know where to find some reading on this?
                          Is that like a straight jump to late september early october that is being mimicked? Would potency be lacking cause I can deal with some gram loss but not potency..
                          Great info!

                              Well, I never follow the seasons when I grow outdoors. We can grow all year here and I do things pretty different to everyone else. So I'm not too sure on that.

                              I started 11/13 on this run but pulled out a little later and returned to 12/12. So this entire post is only based on reading.

                              I'm actually not too sure about the potency - it could be an issue! Just do a thread title search for 11/13 and you'll see the same things I read. It's one of those things, like everything else, where each consecutive poster will post a different opinion.

                              One thing I found particularly interesting was post #8 onwards in this thread. As a fluoro grower I got my wig firmly flipped. Someone else made a thread raising this issue concerning fluoro growers, and I kind of felt like people shrugged it off without paying any attention to the facts being presented quite up front by DeadlyFoez. Anyway, it's trippy stuff.

                              Now, I said HID earlier, but now that I think of it, I'm not too certain how which lights are affected. If your CMH doesn't give off this far red 730nm, then it would be in the same boat as CFLs I would imagine - meaning that 12/12 would actually be giving us more like 13/11 or 14/10 (!!!). So if a fluoro grower uses 11/13, it brings the real balance back to more like 12/12 to 13/11. That's why I said it speeds it up with HIDs, because with fluoros, were not speeding it up as such - we're just making it what it was supposed to be in the first place! That's why fluoro grows take longer than hps.

                              Sorry it's so long and possibly off topic but I found all that hella interesting. With cannabis, it's almost all about the daylight hours, so messing with them can give dramatic results.
