The lamp thing was a good idea until i tried to murder my only Bonda ma jacques seedling with it by dropping my aluminium Armytek headlight near it..But it survived maybe by an inch. :surprised: Never going to do that again and put two spare Bonda ma jacques seeds to germinate near it inside a pot just in case, as Bonda ma jacques is pretty fast growing chili once it germinates.

Todays morning picture before the led light turns on:

IMG_20180201_0754431.jpg

Some of the seeds have not germinated yet.

 

Temperature and air moisture inside the growing room:

IMG_20180201_0755321.jpg

Little bit confusing, so it is 18.2 degrees of celsius and air moisture is 33%.

Looking good Janne... you sure have things dialed in for your location as long as the weather co-operates. Your 2014 results were fantastic!

First spray with the  B'cuzz coco A+B fertilizer:

IMG_20180203_2117351.jpg

Mixed part A 5ml/part B 5ml to 10 litres of water, the EC number was 0.7 and it was the same number as similar mix using Floramicro/Floramato fertilizers. It is going to be so interesting to see the difference between those two fertilizers, if there is any in the end. :eh:

Well they seem to be kicking pretty good after the first spray with the coco A+B fertilizer mix, but now i will have to wait for the roots to start growing in the coco from the rockwool pieces for the real results to show up. In a week or two i will start giving them coco part A 10ml/ part B 10ml to 10 litres of water.

They look good and also have that healthy green color:

IMG_20180205_184015_1.jpg

I think the coco A+B have worked really good so far. Very simple to mix and fair prized too.

I dont know what is going with me and everything regarding lights lately trying to kill my plants:

IMG_20180206_1117221.jpg

 

You see that heavy 100w led growing light i changed just 10 min ago. The whole thing came crashing down on the plants because of the weakened hook i didnt check before hand to make sure it doest come down on it's own. Few of the chili stems got bend pretty bad, but i think they will survive just fine because those things seems to be bomb proof and the stems didnt get damaged at all. :rofl:  :woohoo:

 

I checked every hook etc. and made sure it doest come down ever again by installing double hooks, so remember kids to check your gear to not make the same mistake i did...Um practice makes perfect!

 

This could be the beginning of a horror movie called the bending and the stars of the movie are my chilis:

IMG_20180206_1128411.jpg

 

The newer 100w led growing light is much more brighter, than my old 120w led glowing light.

Ool... Here's hoping you dodged the bullet Janne. Mashed plants would be a real bummer.

Dont worry, i dodged the bullet all right. The chili plants survived just fine and the stems are slowly going back to straight. The next thing i will do now is to give some serious feedback to the manufacturer of the growroom as those hooks are not strong enough to suspend anything remotely heavy for any extended time and the growroom is not even one of those cheap ones.. :banghead:

Secred jardin is the maker and i just send them the feedback to tell about the weakness of the suspension hooks. Let's see how will they respond to my feedback and if they are a serious manufacturer, they will make the hooks stronger in a short order.

Great news folks, there was a quick response for the feedback:

 

" We have been through “handling reinforcement” on Dark Street and Vintage, mid 2014. 
 
Your tent has probably been manufactured before this reinforcement: very sorry."
 
So my growroom was manufactured before this reinforcement of the hooks started. So they want to stand behind their product and will be sending me those stronger hooks free of charge, so all is well and the chilis survived. :thumbsup:

Check this shit out:

IMG_20180206_1805381.jpg

 

These chilis just took almost 2,6kg weight head on from a distance of 50cm like champions and they are like hold my beer mode right now. :drunk: :beer:    If that cant kill them, nothing can... :deadhorse:

 

There is just no way the led light will come down after that double hooking thing and that thick chain can pull a car or something:

They have started to grow more rapid this time around and the fertilizer works great:

IMG_20180208_1937411.jpg

I will now add the 10ml/10ml solution in there to make them pick up the pace.

Ok, next time i will drop two in the same time and that will surely give them some nice growing shock. :dance:
