I turned on the lights at 1am and adjusted the lights up a bit. Tuesday or so I'll be raising them up all the way. The corncobs are almost touching the buds, so I used some coated wire to tie up the splitters higher and at a better angle. The corncob lights are too heavy for the "industrial" metal joints.
The temperature after lights on is 80f and the humidity is at a 65% high range and currently at 50%. On average I see it at 40% humidity by 2 hours after the lights turn on. I know warm and dry is what gnats love, but without a humidifier or a dehumidifier I can't adjust the humidity.
I'm pretty sure it would break it, but it would be cool if I could use nutrients in a humidifier to foliar feed through ambient humidity. Sadie is slowly changing her smell towards a cereal smell now. Nice strong vanilla notes like what I can only describe as frosted flakes. Skunk has all but vanished on her. Holly is almost all skunk, but with a whiff of cheese mixed in. Almost a B.O. smell LoL. Harmony was definitely the right name for her as she smells like Sadie did last week. At this point I'm not going to be surprised if they all end up the same. Ingrid was stunted most likely during the initial pruning when the was almost cut in half while my roommate zoned out. He's not allowed to use the shears anymore. Ingrid is continuing to stretch though, so who knows, she could catch up to the rest in height. 🤷🏻♂️
Still no drooping, but at least the gnat population was reduced again. They all got stuck on Sadie and died on her. Lovely.
I'll stay strong though. If I'm fortunate enough they'll keep going strong until the gnats are reduced enough to eliminate with the pesticide I'll be using. I plan on harvesting near December unless the girls tell me they have to be harvested sooner. I'm just happy to see them still making new trichomes. Maybe once they are finished throwing out new trichs I can find out the final smell they'll be throwing around my house. If everything goes according to plan I'll have bud to smoke on Christmas LoL
