I'm a little worried about low humidity and fruit set. The lights are not hot, but the normal room humidity is low and the lights do warm it up some, so I'm experimenting with glueing buds to see if it makes a difference. Gluing is something you can do outside to ensure self pollination, instead of bagging. The stigmatic fluid should stay sticky inside the glued bud. At least that's my story. The truth is that I got bored "watching the grass grow" and just had to fiddle with something.


The discount mix I am using has styrofoam in it instead of perlite so the pots are drying out every couple of days. A 4 inch pot only has the equivalent water holding capacity and root environment of a 3" pot because of the stuff.
