    Below I have added a little video I made showing the grow room now that the tablets are up with our UI running on them.  Let me know in the comments below or on YouTube if you like the weekly videos and I will keep doing them.  If you guys like them enough I may do a few a week.

[ Lettuce Tent ]
    Our lettuce is still going strong.  I was going to change the water today but the water level is still really good so, I decided to give it another day or two before replacing the water and adding some nutrients to bump the PPM up a bit.  Below I have added some pictures of the lettuce tent and as always you can check out the link at the top of the page for the live stream to check in on the tent 24/7.


[ Anaheim & Big Tai Hybrid Peppers]

    This week we didn't have to do much to our seedlings.  I did give them a small bit of water I mixed up Saturday(11/25/2017).  Below is the mixture I used to water my seedlings.  We will continue to use this mixture for another week or two until the seedlings get a little bigger.  Once they start getting larger we will bump up the PPM gradually and start adding our NPK in the water as well as the small amount of fertilizer in the soil.

    Once the seedlings all had a night to absorb the new nutrient mix, I took them out of the tent one by one this morning(11/26/2017) and picked the weakest seedling out of each cup. This left me with one seedling per cup.  Whenever I put down seeds I always add two to each cup and pick out the weakest. This gives is a better chance of getting at least one seed to germinate in each cup.  When I use starter plugs I sometimes avoid this step but, even then I will do it sometimes just to be safe.  Below I have added pictures of each plant before and after the removal of the extra seedlings.

[ Room Updates ]

  This week I have an exciting new upgrade to the grow room.  I finally got around to mounting two tablets on the wall outside of the room to run the UI for my automation system.  I have added pics below of the tablets as well as the overall room set up just to track changes over time.
