    yeah, that'll do it. as long as the last one in is secured it should be cool.

    I had my chain pop once too, but i fixed it.

    temp changes isn't why they move, its because they have a little play in the groove that you thread into the slot. so when the plant gets a bit bigger, the wieght will make it kinda jostle and wiggle back and forth as it does its flips. This is what lets it move a bit side to side. your tape might prevent this if it is tucked under the edge. . . can't tell from the pic.

    That makes sense. They kind of "walk" along. I was pretty stingy with my tape, so it doesn't affect the gap any. I worry about things like "is the glue on the tape going to be toxic?". It's always the little things that seem to screw up the big pic....

    yeah, but it's on the outside of the housing, so it shouldn't really be touching too much RW.

    All my soil plants are in FoxFarm Ocean Forest. You don't need to feed for the first month, and it drains well. Not to be used indoors, it's too heavy.

    Adding enough coarse perlite to give you a 1:3 proportion to the FFOF ought to lighten it right up. Not quite something that doesn't require mixing, but the next thing to it.

    As a matter of fact, I didn't. I watched the vid once, before I got it, then when I assembled it, I followed the outdated step by step written instructions from their website. I had so many other items to assemble/modify, amongst other issues (like where's the rest of my stuff?), that I didn't check the smaller details. "When all else fails, read the directions."

    I've got that male tendency as well.

    First thing whenever I open a box of something that needs assembling - "throw the destructions, err instructions away"

    I've called that pamphlet 'destructions' for years, but never took the next step of immediate riddance. Good move, like Cortez burning his boats before finding and murdering Aztecs, you are commited.
    Canbis, uncovered windows allow 2-way views. You're running 24hr lights, attractive to curious eyes. That could be a nuisance, or worse.

    Re: Volks Grow

    Thanks for the concern Propa, I'm actually already doing 12/12, and I have an alarm set for when it's time to cover the window. I may be brazen, but not oblivious. Also the window faces the back side of a neighbors garage. Where I live is almost too good to be true. It's set up for privacy with years of well placed vines, bushes, fruit trees and other flora. Not to mention my 100 lb Rottweiler pup, he's as sweet as can be, but looks very intimidating. I keep a low profile, am courteous to neighbors, and have a lot of common sense as well as street smarts. Good lookin out though!

    CanbisMxmus great job man.
    Watch that algea if you using FF in your res. I treat all the time for algea with an algeaicide. My worst ever nute burn was from an algae bloom.

    Re: Volks Grow

    Day 6: Ph 6.0 at 20.3c, 700 ppm. I just left it as is, I'll be changing nutes Monday morning. Explosive growth on several plants.

    Day 7: Ph 6.3 at 21.7c, 750 ppm. I adjusted Ph to 5.8 and left it alone.

    Some of my quicker growing subjects:



    The last one is super silver haze.

    Thanks P4G! It keeps gettin better every day.
