2294.5 Noel 19 (x self) Greenhouse Plant

Nothing major to report here, plant and pumpkin are looking good. There is some slight stem splitting, but the vine now has some extra supports just in case. Also, the mister is turned off since the plant is taking up most of the space the simply transpiration of the plant is providing extra humidity. In about two weeks the main plastic covering will be removed and the summer cover will be added which has side venting and the mister will be needed.

The CO2 is still being run and typically this is the case from transplant until the pumpkin is about 30-40 days old as this helps the plant fill in. However, based on my data the pumpkin does not grow any better so it is removed to allow better overall air flow in the heat of summer.
