Ya I'm getting batteries but I'm ordering off the menue here first lol I've never grown any of shanti strains so I sending off for them soon but good news for today my two sssdh from connoisseur genitic popped so all five are up in sprouted so once I get camara sorted and beans ordered I'll post picks ya I'm thinking I'm going to fim and do scrog I know how to bend and handle pretty good so I figure five was perfect for this room I'm used running fifteen plants at time but I'm alittle tired all that work so I'm focusing more on less plants more watt per plant with these high yielders should be nice ya I seen delhaze shots with 12oz yields in five gallen dwc so I hope for good out come this round and by time I flower these girls I cut clones and start my other room it will be cold by then so electric won't be as bad, like during these summer days lol

So today I checked all are up in perky just running a light aqua shield quarter strength its basically a clone starter real light feed it works great to get them started with out burning them but so far so good hope get picks up don't really want download off my phone just use my camara when I get batteries soon man I hope these are delicious strains I know that delhaze was crossed with lemon skunk and the last lemon skunk I had was awesome smoke so that what I'm hopeing for that lemon haze pheno aw can't wait I'm so glad I took the step in to this cultivateing world my last three years of growing has been wondurful experience and journey and its really my hobbie that puts me at ease and that's wonderful for all to try I find that you can learn something new everyday and that is what I look for this is my first all haze sativa infuelence grow but I started out growing bag seed sativa and found that a lot of them can go up to 14/15 weeks to bulk up so I tried a cross strain haze selection figuered about 11weeks for all should give me fat colas and more 50/50 trichs for that knock out full potential kick that's were I'm leanin towards anyone with any experience growing any of these fill free give me some knowledge especially on ppm for these girls I rather know the range ahead of time then take the chance and burn them its just that I've allways heard that sativa dom are picky eaters and they burn easy happy growing all

With those high temps, are you talking about air temp at canopy or temp of your recirculating nute solution?
You keep saying temps are 91% but I think you mean degrees, right?
Unless you are talking about humidity, in which case, not good.
Those high temps are not good in veg, but even worse during flowering.

From what I understand about DWC, if you can't keep the nutes cool, you are probably better off running a simpler system. You mentioned no $$ for chiller, etc. I have done the ice bottle thing and it would never be considered a realistic solution for me. They melted too fast and needed to be changed constantly.

There is a balance point between increasing light levels and decreasing ability to cool the space.

If you recreate the light of the sun in a 4 foot by 7 tent with temps @ 100, do growth rates increase over an identical tent with a 400 watt HPS running at 78 ?

My advice would be that if you can't cool the room, decrease the light until you solve the temp problem.

nugs, this is exactly what pushed me away from hydro growing in the first place. DWC works very well in northern basement grows, because the floor can work as a heat sink and help keep the nutes within the ideal temp range of 68-72 degrees. Not keeping the water within this temp range makes it difficult to keep the plants happy.

After you finish this grow, I would suggest either going to an organic soil grow, or if you want to use bottled nutes try either a coco grow or hempy baskets for your warm months. These methods give more insulation to the plant's root zone and will keep you from cooking your girls.

You have some wonderful genetics in this grow. I hope you took clones. Delahaze is a favorite of mine, and S.A.G.E. (mkage parent) is near the top of my wish list.
