Ok well there’s no heating in the tank until the waters in. Twin star on 100% for 8 hours but ramps up and down 2 hours before and after and spraying once a day. Only been set up 3 days so just curious, some of the stems have started to straighten up after being curled up invitro

What about the humidity?
You can use 12 hours of light but the humidity is key.
some folk even use 24 hour continuous light!

There is no doubt that several methods work as can be seen documented on this forum.
Personally I dont open the top or spray but others seem to think ‘airing the tank helps in some way.
