This week we missed @noahtheegrowa. The panel discusses lighting sensors and how to use them to optimize lighting for your grow space to avoid getting too much or too little lights to the canopy. After a lot of deep diving into lighting, we switch over to discussing how aphids can be attracted to healthy plants with high brix, and Matthew shares data to support his claims. We discuss how fast LEDs diodes degrade in comparison to HIDs, then we begin taking questions from chat like how to manage environment going from budget to full sized lights and how to adjust to accommodate. We also take a question about PM or powdery mildew and how to avoid pests when growing veges outdoors. Spartan grown gives an update on his outdoor sparkleface plant and how he would plan to deal with late flower rains. We go off topic and talk about chocolate, white vs dark and milk chocolates, and IPM for coffee beans. Brandon rust gives an update on his grow box, and his breeding projects he is testing and line breeding. We discuss good IPM practices as a result of accepting the knowledge and info the pests can attack even healthy plants. We discuss rice root aphid ipm as a response to a question about using doctor zymes in the water tube of a SIP container. We discuss the implications of remotely mounting LED drivers vs mounting them within the grow space and different ways this can be accomplished. We discuss up and down regulation genes of resilience or susceptibility genes of plants. We also discuss use of ozone, or ozonated water for cleaning grow spaces, or filtering exhaust. We discuss some of cannabis aromas, like fruity pebbles og (FPOG) cereal milk, and others with similar aromas to smells we find in nature or foods. We discuss healthy plants and what makes a healthy plant for a bit as well.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/cheaphomegrow/support
