By adjusting speed of fan?
Yes, the LED's warm up the air in the drum, I lower the temp in the drum by blowing colder air into the drum, more air = colder, less air = warmer.

Nice. I am the opposite for my winter indoor grows...I try to maximize heat retention because I grow in a 50-60F space.

This picture will give you a better sense of the grow of the lettuce in the drum. I am pretty happy about how things are going right now and I really start looking forward having the 2 cannabis clones in the drum, hopefully next week…..

? What is the normal grow time for the lettuce, has your system sped up this process ?
I am at week 5 now and in soil it takes 6 - 9 weeks, in hydro it takes about 4 weeks according the Internet so I am behind to the latter. I might have lost one week because of my clumsiness in the beginning and probably I could fine-tune things a bit but as it looks I might beat soil in the future but not DWC hydro, at least not with lettuce....

Still, for a first trial run I am happy with the result.

Small update, the lettuce is still growing very well and roots are showing with one of the cannabis clones. As soon as I see roots at the second clone I will put them in the drum, hopefully this coming week.
