If anybody could re direct me to the right thread or help me out at all, that would be awesome. Keep smokin. Any help would be appreciated.
i totally agree with madmedmary, thats a very very good piece of adviceI read all I can about gardening,our gardening. One story or means of growing, Temps, humidities, etc contradicts the other. Keep day & dark temps within 5-7 degrees F. to keep close, tight nodes. Raise lite, lower lites 1/2 dose nutes double potass. It all depends on your own experienceI notice w/ run of the mill houseplants that indoors at your friends house isn't the same as the indoors at ur house. take what you read as good advice but you will find your niche soon enough. Its a weed. It will grow w/ lite, h2o a medium(soil). our first time was a great success. then I started reading about it. new ways, new strains, heat mats, a bunch of crap along w/a little good info. Fox Farm, the way to go ????????????? NO!!!!!! Not only r they not organic, their soil is buggy. Find a better nute. Make your own. play w ur lights see 4 urself what its like to have ur lights up higher and c what when u lower them. informed decisions. :all good:what happened to the color i was writing in?
Well I did the same thing at first to keep temps down. It was and is my first grow but I have finished 6 plants now. The first 3 my temps stayed pretty much the same and they did great. It was alway about 80-82f. The next 3 I switched my cycle and installed and ac unit so I could have the lights off at night to get a temp diff and to help prevent light leakes. The temp is now 76-63. Since then I noticed the same straines I finished last time were way better than the first. Their were deep purples and blues I didn't see the first time with the original plants. The last 3 were clones of the first btw. They were also completely covered in trichs. To the point they appeared white in the right light. But that's just my experience. Hardley a scientific analysis I know but I'm sold.Sorry for bringing this up again,
running a 400 HPS in a 2x2x5.3 (air cooled with a 300 CFM fan) with 3 small fans blowing inside and 1 bringing in cold air from the house.
Problem is i live in a hot climate so If i run the light during the day the temps would go up to 31-32degrees for a couple of hours a day.
So i turn the lights on at night.
im in to flowering now and I was wondering if it is that important to have a drop in temps at night because my temperature difference is around 2-3 degrees celcius
With the dish I believe it needs to be like a baking sheet, you want more surface area. For 40 bucks you could buy a humidifier or another thing I read about is hanging moist paper towels so your fan blows across them.Hope I'm in the right place for a humidity question. In a small grow closet with a AeroGarden. My temps run between 80-85 but my humidity is way to low. Around 30. How do I get my humidity up without breaking the bank. I put a medium dish with water in the cabinet with no noticeable results.
