Yes, you’ll need much more. You can bring the light closer to the plant so that it gets more light for now, but consider something like this.
100 watts, spectrum tuned for plants. Good value. There are others with comparable specs for similar prices too! Spider farmer isn’t the only good light manufacturer
Aphids are usually pretty easy to take care of. Pyrethrum fucking wrecks em'. Buy a pyrethrum bomb for the room, put the plants in there and set that fucker off.
This should help https://images.app.goo.gl/XhGkuL3fyy3Yaaxb6
I would highly suggest getting a Lupe. Amazon has a digital microscope for around $20 that's works great!
You should be able to get the light ~6 inches from the top of the tent.
I recommend you completely fill your tent canopy before you switch to flower. You can always cut back excess.
great! consider it purchased! EDIT: in case anyone is interested, hereis the kindle/amazon link . There seem to be a couple of version floating around, but this is the one OP has.

Yes it's WalMart, I mix that with the Coco bricks from Amazon.
It stretches the mix and I think it would keep soil moisture because pro mix tends to dry out and when you have alot of plants outdoors it gets expensive.

Rub it if it comes off its fungus youll need to defoliate all infected leaves and heavily spray the spores off the rest of the plant, get rid of the material same day in a trash far away from your grow. Make your u have proper ventilation as fungus loves humidity.
If it doesnt rub off its calcium or magnesium deficiency, this early into flower can really effect your yields. And can still be foliar fed for fast absorption https://growlightinfo.com/rust-spots-on-leaves-during-flowering/ <-good stuffs..
Before adding anything check your soil ph and make your adjustments based off that and your grow journal as it could also be nutrient burn and adding more nutes could be making the problem worse.
Also i see white specks on the there if you are misting stop asap

Yeah they aren't great. But they'll let you see the colors of your trichomes, spot powdery mildew and see tiny bugs. Best you can hope for for $20.
No you can’t have too much c02.
Op you missing out on the real easy at home c02 solution. Those grow bags don’t really work and are pretty expensive! I wouldn’t worry about it being too much.
It’s harmful to have too much c02 for humans not plants lol.

You can buy citric acid and baking soda in bulk from amazon and it only costs 2$ for 2 weeks of c02.
With the grow bags, you looking at going from like 500-650 ppm and it’s like 30$ a month. With this you looking at 4$ a month to get 1200ppm.
There’s no comparison!!!

I would recommend keeping the humidifier outside of the tent to humidify the room, rather than the tent (assuming you are pulling fresh air into the tent from the room). I also recommend getting THIS BOOK. It really helped me understand a lot more when I was starting out.

Dude, get a couple 2000w (268w) Quantum Boards. They have dimmers and full spectrum. Most growers build it themselves, but Amazon has them for like $150 each, and they outperform Viparspectra, Marshydro and Spiderfarm because the tech is newer.
There are cation exchange sites in coco that will interfere with nutrition until they are buffered. The cation exchange sites in coco naturally come loaded with sodium (Na) and potassium (K) cations. However, the Na and the K are only weakly held to the exchange sites. In the presence of calcium (Ca) or magnesium (Mg), the sites will release their Na or K cations and lock onto the Ca or Mg. These processes are known as “cation exchanges”.
Buffering coco is accomplished by soaking it in Ca and Mg. This allows the cation exchanges to take place prior to adding plants. Simply soak your coco in a solution of Cal/Mag water and the exchange sites will release their K and Na cations and lock onto the Ca and Mg. When the cation exchange sites bond with Ca and Mg rather than Na and K, it is “buffered”. The bonds that hold the Ca and Mg to the sites are very strong and cation exchange will largely stop. This means that all of the nutrients that you add to the water will be available to the plant at the ratios that you provide them.
Growing in Un-Buffered Coco
Many growers are unaware of the need to buffer the coco and they try to grow plants in unbuffered coco. In unbuffered coco, the cation exchange sites will strip the nutrient solution of the Ca and Mg and replace those cations with Na and K. This creates a sub-optimal Nutrient Element Ratio (NER) and renders Ca and Mg unavailable to the plant.
Failing to buffer the coco is why so many growers suffer calcium deficiencies in coco grows. Manufacturers of prepared coco products try to exploit these problems and convince growers that only their proprietary products are suitable for growing. However, it is actually very simple to properly buffer your coco yourself. This tutorial walks you through the process and provides all the information you need to turn even the cheapest brick of dehydrated coco into a superior growing medium.
Inkbird makes a cheap controller for this I’ve been looking at myself here Amazon
I hear ya. But those little cheap Wish cork bottles are cheap. Look into perfume sample bottles. They’re glass, with plastic lids, and airtight. They look good too. Some come with center sticks on the lids but they’re easily clipped.
Like these as an example. You can find them cheaper elsewhere.

First of all, that's quite a showing for someone who doesn't know what they're doing. Looks like you're going to have a nice little harvest soon. Second thing- You're really awesome for growing this bud for your family member. A loupe like this is what you use to tell when the plant is ready for harvest. When you see trichomes turning amber on the calyxes (not the sugar leaves), you are in the harvest window.
For the next grow- Topping and training your plant is easy, and will boost your yields while making the grow much more manageable. Here's how I top and train:
That's all you gotta do. Good luck!

If it's this stuff, it's 3-0-3 so it's pretty mild but has nutrients.
As long as they look good, leaves pointing up, then you're good to go though. Especially when they are small less is more, because if you stress them, you'll lose time and growth with them recovering. You could do half strength on the first dose just to be safe but seems it was fine anyway.. With fresh soil, under nuteing isn't going to do any harm, but over definitely can, so I would always err on the side of caution.
Yes, 4" exhaust fan should do it. I would also leave the doors open during lights on so that the heat isn't all trapped in the closet. But that's just me. If noise is an issue I'd go with AC Infinity.
If it's not and cost is more your concern, something like this might be better for you.
I'd be more inclined to get two smaller fans rather than one big one, but that's only because I like to control every detail and I'd be treating each tent as its own environment even though they're right next to each other.
I really like these BIO BAGS for the drainage and they come in many sizes. I use the 30 gallon or the hundred gallon depending on what I’m growing.

A dehumidifier in the tent will do just fine depending on how big it is. Venting is good if you run your exhaust 24/7. If you have your exhaust connected to a temp controller, and choose not to vent 24/7, drop your controller to 70° at night and open one of the Velcro flaps facing a wall to prevent light from getting in. Been doing this for years and never have my humidity go above 60% even after they’ve all been watered. You seem to have a full house so the humidifier in the tent seems to be out of the question, so venting 24/7 would be your only option. However, during the end of flower, you do want to keep your RH below 50%, so running your exhaust 24/7 will be needed at some point. Running a dehuey in conjunction with the exhaust is pointless because now you are trying dehumidify the air coming into the tent. My dehuey has its own humidity controller, so I just set it and it does the rest on its own.
Here’s the dehuey I have if your interested…..

Some strains barely smell and others can stink out a room in a sealed baggie so you won't know what you're dealing with until they really start budding up.
A small grow tent with a carbon filter would give you a steady supply. A 2x2x6' tent, 4" exhaust fan with speed control to keep it quiet, carbon filter and a little LED light like this one, (I have the exact same one in a 2x4x4' tent) and it covers half of the tent really good.
COB LED grow light.
You just start a new fem auto seed every couple of months and by the time the 2nd one is making it crowded in there the first one is ready for harvest and you start the 3rd one so every 2 months you harvest a couple or more ounces. Keep the light on 18hrs/day using a cheap timer and for maybe $500 - $800 you have a nice little system that is easy to hide and should be odourless. Tip: Buy a bigger carbon filter than the little ones sold with cheap systems and you get much better odour control and it will last a lot longer. Virgin Australian charcoal is the best.
I grow medicinally and over the years have put about $5000 into all my grow gear. The tent is just for small plants, clones etc. My main room is 7x9x6.5'h and I'm expanding it for another 8x4' flower area and I mainly use HID lights up to 1000W. Pot is legal here and I've yet to buy a single gram.
Is this a 3d print? Or did you buy these and modify them?
I use this vent outlet. It has a door that shuts when fan isn’t on. Might be a good solution for you. I run my fan 24/7 but it’s a nice feature.

It looks like a blurple, and it seems to be fairly high above the canopy. I've used this light, which you'd think is 600W, but actually draws 260W at the wall. I found it was barely adequate for a 3 x 3 tent, but I noticed a 3 fold increase in bud size when I upgraded to a more efficient light. The efficiency of blurples is about 1.05 umol/w, whereas something like a Mars Hydro is 1.8 umol/w. If you multiply your actual draw wattage by the efficency, and divide by your square footage, you want to be somewhere around 65 umol/sqft (700 umol/m^2).

I just wanted to see if it was off after a couple months, but it was still good! It’s still correctly calibrated right now, which has been another couple months since I did it last
I know some people use the cheap 15-20$ Orange and yellow ones amazon has with some pretty good results. I would personally spend a tad bit more and get one from Apera if you can.
Here’s the one I have: Apera ph20
I got a few seeds last year so I planted all just in case I ended up with males which I did, who's counting if it's never known? What are the repercussions? I think they just take away not sure.
I use IMG if you're on Android here is play store, I upload to that and grab the link and post it here, I use an app called boost for reddit which I customize so not sure exactly how to upload through the app but on boost I just pic the image and upload it might be the same with the Reddit app if not IMG will do it.
This is that kit.

Price dropped 15% since I added it to my list a month ago. Not a good sign IMO.
This kit is $400 and does simple potency analysis at home. I’ve seen it used on some forums.
Sorry, not sure about on demand local labs.
It's a beast. The low profile lets me keep the tray close to the ground - which is an issue because I have height limitations. It's quiet and, thus far, reliable. And it has enough head height to move the drainage a good distance.
Well worth the money. I tried to buy anything recommended by coco for cannabis through their affiliate links to say "thanks for doing the work." But the float switch pump he had was twice as much.
You have enough time to get one of these shipped in (link below). Don't wast your time with loupes or hand held microscopes. You can plug this bad boy into your phone or laptop, and it is 100 times easier to see trichomes with.
STS is an abbreviation for Silver Thiosulfate Solution and it’s one way of making feminized seeds with no hermaphroditism characteristics
Here’s one product that’s reliable but really anything with STS will work. You can even test your inner chemist and make it yourself
One week before you flip to flower....Spray STS 4-5 days straight about 2 hours prior to lights off. In about a couple weeks harvest those sacks and carefully apply the pollen with a paint brush to the lower buds that won’t get very big anyways, and bam seeeeeeeeeeeds

Flower Fuel...and epsom salt...the epsom salt is better than the cal mag mixes....to each his own though..right 😀..
There are a lot of preventatives out there, the most common one being neem oil. You should be able to get it in the UK. the harshest chemical to use if you already have mites is Avid
It's expensive but you only need to use a little bit. I spray avid once, right before the dark cycle because light can burn your leaves. I say mites bc they are the most feared pest and are hard to get rid of. You can spray avid more than once in veg if your mites are bad. If you have fungus gnats, breaking up some of these and sprinkling them over top your soil will get rid of them quick.
I've never had any pesticide come up in testing, bc I spray during the veg cycle. By the time the buds come around, all the pesticides have gone away.
Probably, but the way to get rid of them is the same so thats why I said either. With mites they are almost always on the bottom side of the leaf. Thrips will be on both sides. Thrips are annoying as hell and they actually will bite you if they get a chance.
Maybe look for something like this? Although you’d probably want a different color temperature for flower; some thing with more red spectrum and less blue.

I personally usethis one for a 4x4 tent and it heats it extremely fast. Gets below freezing where i live and this can keep my tent at a steady 75
The mediums may act differently from one another and you likely won’t be able to make a homogeneous mix. This could cause complications for you. Which I’m not saying to discourage you because more than likely the new soil would be higher in nutrients and it doesn’t sound like you’re planning on using store bought nutes.
Non expert advice incoming, I’d highly recommend getting a second opinion:
When transplanting, depending on how dense the root structure is you can kind of shake out a bit of the previous medium to get rid of it so that it’s using more of the new medium.
Something that may help such a shock to the system would be something like this:
Mycorrhizal Root Booster for A Bigger, More Explosive Root Mass (200g) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H5V7VZ2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ywxfFbSF9T78W
I’ve never used anything like this, but I’ve heard good things from others (not about this specific product, but in general)
Alternatively if something like that isn’t too affordable for you, I have heard of dusting the roots with cinnamon during transplant. It doesn’t do all the same things. But it’s supposed to be helpful.
Take all of that with a grain of salt. I’m still on my first grow so I’m by no means positive on this stuff. I hope you get a decent light mate. They have pretty good daily deals on amazon. I saw a 100w QB board get down to 75 bucks the other day. Good luck to you in your growing journey.
Any suggestion on a lighting controller?
And putting them on something like this won’t work? https://www.amazon.com/Century-Outlet-Protector-Mechanical-Outlets/dp/B00MWHQZX0/ref=asc_df_B00MWHQZX0/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167151358503&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11296596728728995496&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqm...
It'll vary based on the plant, but I've transplanted and flowered 1 week later. I recommend a trowel like this to help get it out the 3 gallon pot.
Generally 2 weeks after transplant is sufficient unless the shock is super bad
about a tbsp or so of gypsum per 5 gal does well by me.
and yeah, you got it! test the runoff vs water going in . theres soil test kits that are pretty cheap and work okay, but not perfect of course lol. to be a bit more thorough, you can check the soil ph kit results vs the runoff. heres a link to the kits im mentioning.
I've been using one of these for about 8 months and it works ok, plants seem to like it. I spent another $80 on a 2 stage sediment/chlorine filter that I run through first. I wish I could afford a better system. This one wastes a significant amount of water. If you do go RO make sure to use Cal/Mag. Also you need sufficient water pressure to run this filter.
