    re: Help - Freezing temps

    Sorry to hear this. They don't take freezing well and won't recover if fully frozen. Bummer.
    It sounds like your grow needs to be insulated. I don't understand how they could freeze that quickly? I have no heat in my flowering room for 12 hours every day during lights off. Sometimes the power goes out on top.
    Is it possible to insulate the place- it do you think this is a freak event?

    I see.
    It sounds promising if they're doing that well. I was thinking they were completely frozen. Pics?

    They might recover just depends on her genetics. Some cannabis get hurt from that temp some don't what was the strain or dominant strai

    hi
    thanks for PM pitbull, like I said in PM, a pic would be good so we can estimate the damage better.
    I belive they could perk up if it was for only a gew hours ( and not 1-2 days)

    You can try to make use of Heat Recovery ventilation. What you can do for cheap and low efficiency is to put intake lets say 100mm tube into outtake that is 150mm. Make it so it is made of aluminium tube with lots of crevices and crumples. You can preheat the intake tube with air from your outtake without the air mixing together. Try to google it to get the idea. You are gonna get some condensation in the intake tube also. Good luck with temps man, winter can be hard.
