    If temps are above 85F yes. As the plant transpires to cope with the heat, it will suck up so much water from your medium, bringing with it high doses of ferts. This will burn your plant. Similarly, when it is cold, high fert levels are not so much of an issue, so levels can be a little higher than normal

    Portable - Air Conditioners - Air Conditioners, Fans & Heaters - Appliances at The Home Depot

    These exhaust through a hose... no need to mount into a window or wall. They work great fr small area's.

    Sorry I know how ya feel... mine too. People may laugh, but growin up poor, dad would buy blocks of ice and put them in front of fans (on trays/bowls) to cool a room for us. While doing a small closet grow in a hot area (over 100 in the shade during summer. I survived by running lights at night, and doing my dads trick. Only I used Dry Ice (available for $1/Lb at the local grocery) in a plastic colander hung in front of the fan.

    It did cool the closet. I can't say as the extra Co2 really helped. But I thought it was a nice touch.

    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    k i got a diff reading from each plant and here they are.

    boshiba - ph7- i need to lower.

    curly- ph6- is fine but im gonna make a second check on that.

    12/12- ph4 - way to low

    and my tap water is ph6 when its touching the bottom of cup and ph5.5 when half way in cup.

    as for the 12/12 im guessing im over feeding ?

    as for curly i think she can stay right were she is but im gonna keep watching her

    and boshiba is to high and deff need to be lowered i need to do some reading and see what to lower them with. any household items i can use ? is vinegar for lowering or highering ?

    Re: biggreenbuds first grow !!!

    man soil holds on to so much ...

    When I have medium thats holding on to salts or messing with my PH, I bring water to target PH and flush. I'm in Hydro though. A friend suggests watering with 1 to 1.5 points lower than target PH to lower soil PH, no nutes.

    Double check it with a soil guru here though.
