Ok so hopefully I’ve lurked enough not break any etiquette rules ... ideally I want RDWC but I’ve already upgraded at 20 days in so I just thought I would share instead of crawling out of the shadows for help.

Attaching my work to date . Sorry for the chicken scratches it actually makes sense to me . Red and yellow are ph testers . I think red needs to be calibrated .
Mistakes made so far:
Started on soil grow box Nutes ( flushed)
Too many Nutes too early ( new bucket should arrive tomorrow to flush again)
Light was too low

It’s drawing out of the tent to create negative pressure and into the filter . I saw this as an option when I started with the tiny tent .. if it isn’t effective when the girls are blooming I will fix it ?
Although it is an option and it works fine, your carbon filter won't stay as efficient or last as long hooked up this way as there is no pre-filter on the inside like there is on the outside. Don't have much of a choice with the small tent but the big one should have plenty of room up top

What a bitch!!! I'm not convinced she is airtight and I might pick up another filter for her to blow into? ..but I am listening!! Thank you :)

Airtight? do you mean the the joint between the fan and filter? You are sucking air out of the tent so the tent is negative pressure, no smell will come from that. You are pulling through the filter so the only way smell can get through is from the joint between fan and filter, if that is sealed you are golden.
