Thank you! And yes this forum has been amazing and super helpful! The only thing I am battling right now is the temps in my 4x4x80 tent. I have 2 1200 watt Full Spectrum LEDS both veg and bloom switch on , two fans blowing across the top creating good circulation , a 6” circulating fan in the corner and a circulating fan across the bottom underneath the scrog net.
One 4” intake fan at the bottom and a 4” exhaust fan with carbon filter on the top. I don’t have the money to put in an ac unit and my man wouldn’t let me anyway because of electricity usage. I’m going to try and see if an extra 4” exhaust fan going out the top will help when I get paid. The highest the temp has gotten is 86*F but it averages around 80-83 * F during the day and mid to low 70’s at night.RH has been averaging low to mid 40’s Thanks again for all the help!

Your temps would be fine if your RH was higher. There's a certain area the plants like to be in regards to RH and Temps. The carbon filter restricts the cfm on the fan and for a 4x4x80 I would recommend a 6" exhaust fan over 2 x 4". The 4" exhaust is fine for smaller tents but you want a minimum 6" exhaust fan hooked up and venting out the top of the tent. You could get rid of the 4" intake and just use the vents to bring air in. You want a negative pressure in the tent.
What's the pull from the wall on your lights. 1200W each I may take a guess at 600w. Can you just use one light for now which will drop your heat down a lot. Are you in veg or flower?

I strongly recommend getting a journal going as well. Tag me and I'll be sure to join in. Lots of good peeps will also. It's a good place to keep all the info you learn, and the admins prefer it :)

I am currently 14 days in from 12/12 switch. I have a humidifier but can’t fit in there with the setup I did for the scrog net and stands I made to be able to water the girls by fitting a dish underneath for runoff. I have the bottom flaps (with the mesh screens)open as soon as the light come on until they go off. I was thinking about trying to put the humidifier in front of the intake fan maybe could raise it that way? I will get a 6” then as soon as I get paid! My last grow was in my craft room closet and the atmosphere was much easier to control for sure! I’m not sure what the pull from the wall is but the manufacturer says it’s supposed to replace a 900watt HPS/MH.
From the manufacturer it says
It consumes 213 watts, maximum coverage area 4x4.5 at 24” height but I don’t buy the completely.
