RGS Royal Gorilla Auto--1st Grow!

Got my Grobo last week and immediately started my 1st grow with an RGS Royal Gorilla Auto. I’m hoping to get away for a bit in August (if the COVID gods will allow), so wanted a fast strain. Looking good so far I think. Started in paper towel, transferred as soon as shell cracked and I could see tap root and she sprouted on day 3. A little concerned about nighttime temps–I have a heater on termostat (growing in garage), but my nighttime temps still seem to have ranges from 11-14 C (52-57F), but we’re in a cold snap, so that might improve. Humidity is also very low (21-24%), but I just got a humidifier, so hopefully that will help. These pics are from today, Day 5.

Very happy for any advice, and very psyched to be getting started!

Is it just in the garage or in a tent in the garage. The later will have a serious impact on helping humidity and temp

Just in the garage. Not ideal, I know, but I don’t know that a tent is really an option right now. I have gotten the daytime temps pretty regular (and am a little confused why the nighttime aren’t regulating, as the heater is on a thermostat). I wouldn’t have thought low humidity would be an issue in my climate, but the heater is likely the reason for that.

I made an assumption its all good. Based on your low humidity id buy thr cheapest tent you can for the garage. Maybe a 2x2x4. Will make a world of difference

Managed to get the RH up to 45% last night using the humidifier for the first time, so I think that’s probably going to be OK (my wife thinks it’s possible that it just got more humid out, but I don’t think that accounts for the shoft from around 20% to 45). Still need to work on nighttime temps though. The light being off makes more of a difference than I would have guessed–at least 5 degrees celsius, minimum. I think I just need to play with the timer and thermostat to get it right.

I think I’ve got the temperature issue under control. RH will continue to be a problem–45% is the absolute highest I can get it, it seems.

Nevertheless, we’re making very slow but steady progress. First water change last night.
