Update Flower Day 49

The ladies have really chunked up this past week to the point that I am afraid of botrytis again. Am running max airflow and three fans but this is FL and my humidity is rarely below 60%. Since I have a tester grow of Sour Orange Diesel that needs to be put into flower soon, in addition to the humidity issue, I began flushing the ladies this past Friday and plan on harvesting them Thursday. I'll post a few pics after the chop and rough trim.

The ladies today:



Peace,
starke

Looking great, but also looks a little early to be chopping?

Totaly understand the issue with mold and high RH, but maybe its worth considering a dehumidifyer?

Im very happy with mine, thinking about maybe getting another one.

I have a large dehuey but there is no room for it in the flower or veg rooms. I have tried running it in my master bedroom which is the lung room for my grow space, but running that way only decreases my humidity about three percent and heats up everything by about five degrees.

Good news is I have harvested four of these strains at six weeks following hurricane Irma and they still produced decent smoke. I'm looking forward to our lower winter humidity where I'm at, that's for sure.

I am having good luck with an oscillating fan under the canopy. It dropped the humidity 10-20% from the 70s to the high 50s. It’s the way it dried everything underneath out that helped. Any dead leaves get crispy instead of slimey. I grow big plants in 3 gallon coco and cut the underbrush out so there is a decent amount of space under there. I am going to put one in every room.

I'm running two 10 inch oscillating fans under the canopy in opposite corners and one blowing across the top. Exhausting with a 10" Hyperfan for a 5x8 room which is kind of overkill and still can't get the humidity below 60%. As I sit here typing this the humidity is reading 64%. I am probably going to have to buy a smaller dehuey that will fit in the room as a long term solution.

Started the chop at about 7:00am and with the misses' help just hung the last rough trimmed branch.

Normally I dry in my flower room but I have a tester round of Sour Orange Diesel that I have to get under a scrog ASAP. Since my exhaust and carbon filter also encompass my master bedroom and bath the bath just became a drying room. Going to be kind of strange having to duck under buds to brush my teeth.

Anyway, although harvested two weeks early, the buds are dense and well covered in trichs. I discovered one small dime size spot of botrytis on one cola so I am glad I went ahead with the harvest.

Going to take a break from this diary for a minute since the Sour Orange Diesel tester grow is being documented under the Real Gorilla Seeds threads. Be back here when that is done. Link to that grow is in the signature for anyone interested.



Peace,
starke

Just a quick update to keep track. The BB x WW went into jars today at 64% RH. Weight was 6.73 oz.

Peace,

The rest of the harvest went into jars this morning, also at 64% RH.

The two Super Lemon Haze produced 9.49 oz.

The two Liberty Haze produced 17.92 oz.

Total for the run was 2.1 lbs. Still not what I know the room is capable of but will keep on refining my process. Trying my first SCROG screen on the current Sour Orange Diesel grow which I hope will improve yields. Link to that grow in the signature.

Back in a couple months.

Peace,
starke
