    Re: Volks Grow

    I've actually got one of my wheels going again, with quite the mix again, but everything is labled this time, and all the clones were well established before getting put in rotation. Avg temp and humidity for my room is hard to say, it really varies with the outdoor weather, roughly 78f and 50%+ humidity. I am working on gaining controll over more of the environment a step at a time.

    this is for any wheel cultivator. when nightfalls n the wheel is off, plants begin to droop. does anyone have an idea why this my be. I think its a lack of co2 in the room at night. second nite in a roll this has happened. thru the day, they look like there working.
    when I return the next day after 8 hrs off. they look droopy. temp in med 70's to low n humidity 69. in veg.

    it's not low co2 at night. co2 is only used for photosynthesis, a process which is not happening at night time.

    what do you mean the wheel is off? you mean the light in the whee is off right? you dont stop the wheel I hope.

    what is you watering schedule? could be overwatering or underwatering. . . thats prob the best I can say without seeing any pics.

    start a journal, post some pics, and there are enough experienced growers here to help you diagnose your problem, but it's hard to help just from your description . . . if you don't know the problem you might not be able to describe the proper things to get it diagnosed properly either. . . pics would help a lot.

    regarding turning off light, yes thats what i meant. i water once a day, 2hrs after lights on. I had my room to hot the first couple days. lost smell of clones n vigor trying to nurse them back. things were looking up until i turn nights off.

    Re: Volks Grow

    At night all plants will droop period. Thats just the way it is, it takes a few hours but it will always happen. Check out my last journal and you will see some of my plants drooping in the nightime photos I take, do yours look any different than this?!CLICK HERE! The idea that your plants aren't getting enough CO2 at night does make sense because at night your plants expell CO2, Any plant that is green and growing including Cannabis does not need CO2 at night because there is no photosynthesis going on. Without light there is no need for CO2 because its not photosynthesizing/creating sugars and growing. Plants have several reasons for drooping at night, for one theres no need for the plants to stay turgid with the leaves facing up when there is no light, another reason is to keep from loosing excess water at night through the leaves. When the plant is drooping it has less exposed surface area to transpire through. You see this commonly in plants from the southwest when during the hottest middle part of the day they wilt to conserve water, and come 430 5 o clock they open back up to collect sun and grow under more reasonable temperatures. Its a way for plants to conserve, and it doesnt always mean your plants arent happy. Since your plants only wilt at night that leads me to beleive all is fine, if your plants were short of water or something like that you would expect them to be wilting when the light is on and its hot. Plants can also wilt from reservoir temps being to high, or your PH or PPMs has gone array quickly and suddenly for some reason(this is ussually fallowed by death however). Or just simply high temperature. ALL of those would be most evident when the light is on though so for it to only happen when you turn OFF the lights leaves it unlikely that any of those are your problem.

    Anyhow pictures would certainly help but I think that everything is probably ok. I hope this helps out with some of your questions, if you have any more feel free to ask.

    I just love these volks grow forums!
