Closet Chronicles : Growing With Mr.Sparkle 2019

Time for a new thread, so here we are.

Quick rundown of my setup for those who are new.

Dual chamber closet setup running at 0.28 m2 or 3 SqFt a side, and with a height of 73cm or 28.75" from floor to ceiling. Filtration and air exchange is provided by a 6" carbon filter connected to a AC Infinity T6. Also running a couple 92mm PC fans for circulation, and have basic auto watering setups composed of about $20 worth of parts per reservoir.

“At the time of this post” im running some lm561c led strips in an array, reduced my previous bigger setups down to a 3 bar and they are running at 70 watts a side, just as a baseline test for another light i may be trying out.

Plant’s wise i run pretty much only autos now, but may sneak in photo run for breeding purposes.

Nutrients is just Megacrop, the version 2 stuff right now.

And here we are

I do whatever is needed, typically I flop which is like supercropping just more focus on how it’s bent, but sometimes I need to lst, hst, and top and prune heavily if they are running big, as for height not much something like 18" or so from pot to light

You supercrop your auto’s?, Do you find it makes them have a bit of down time? sorry read it too fast, lol, like supercroping you said

Yeah crush the stems and flop them over but I just make that bend radius bigger than standard supercropping, but I also tie them down if needed, and personally no I don’t notice any slow down as I’m not trimming the plant and the other nodes take up the slack quickly usually giving me a somewhat even canopy. You’ll see in about two weeks :wink:, or I hope cause if they all bolt when I’m gone for 7 days it’s gonna be a mess

It gets dirty, i just clean it up afterwards or give it a quick wipe down with a cloth. Yesterday had coco everywhere so much so i needed the vacuum, figured ah let me blow that coco off the lower leaves of the pots i just topped up.

Forgetting that i hadn’t water settled all of it yet, Poof cloud of dry coco everywhere… damn now i gotta clean it.
