  1. Hi guys, Im upscaling my grow from a tent to a room. Im hoping to put 4 lights in, i already have 2x600w HPS.. but would my 8” 1008m3/h extraction be enough? I cant find a calculation. My room has a calculated volume of 12.6m3. More light = more heat ..weep tia
  2. So ive had my grow pretty under control until today outdoors its mad hot and tomorrow its meant to be worse, my tents gone from a nice 24 -29 to 35c!!!the plants look okay and ive put a humidifier and opened every bloody window/door to try get some heat disipitation around the tent but id like to see if anyone else has struggled with this and what they did? Im not going to LST OR water or anything during this they got water yesterday and i dont want to burn their roots or stress them anymore than the heat has, should i raise my HPS light to counter this? Its a complete unknown and lesson for me, all help is appreciated!

    1st day in the sun, has been topped at 10 nodes, is 30 days in veg so far, flowering should begin at end of first week of august. was raised indoors to avoid hostile conditions while recovering from the various trimmings, shall source some liquid potassium soap tomorrow and give a light spray just to deter bugs settling in around the pot, i keep an eye on spray PH.... just in case, try to keep it not much higher than 8.5 in dilution. Shall also be using Propolis for mold resistance and B-Toxin for green caterpillars later on when well blooming. Am expecting every baddie to visit so there will be plenty of preventative spraying and hot oil ready at hand Shall see you good folk soon.
  4. First post guys go easy on me. Been following for years just never signed up. Now I have a conundrum and after some thoughts. I have as much airflow as I can arrange so adjusting this is currently not an option. which of the following is likely to yield more - 3 x 600w and 1 x 400w hps light and a canopy temp of 32 degrees c during lights on (with good circulation) (also temp below canopy and at pots is around 26) - 3 x 600w Hps only and a canopy temp of 27 degrees c during lights on all 4 looking healthy and fine I just can’t decide if i should drop 400w and have ideal temperatures or use the extra 400w and have canopies above ideal temps. discuss...
  5. Hi good people! I have a 4 inch rvk in a 1.2x1.2x1.8 loft tent pulling through a 125/300 rhino pro filter, I have a 5 inch (large one) rvk ordered and on the way which will be installed instead of the 4inch for extract. I'm running a 400w dual spectrum light, two oscillating fans lights light on 20/4 with off 12pm to 4pm.I'm getting very high temps at switch on as the loft is south facing and warmed up. would a fan speed controller with the 4 inch rvk as an intake remedy/balance this, could draw air from the cool side of the house. Would 5inch rvk with filter clamped on in tent have enough difference from 4inch rvk to create negative pressure. or should the passive intake system once 5 inch rvk (large) fitted work (keep temps down) autos are looking fine atm if a little heat stressed at times, three weeks in. I'm guessing summers gonna get too hot so gonna spring/autumnal autos only. Used to clone/mother etc before kids but these days it's all gotta be on the DL.

  12. I have posted a similar question before but was hoping it may been seen by more people who can help in this catagory. Going against the correct advice given here not to buy a complete set up, I did buy a complete set up. I wish now I had listened to the advice and not bought it. The equipment is all very well made but the 250w with 250w ballast HPS light is too hot for a tiny 50x50x100cm tent where I will be growing one plant. After setting it all up and leaving a thermometer inside I left the light and outlet fan on for an hour or so and the temperature rose to 35c/95f. I think this is too hot for what I need. After reading about how to cool things down I bought a 6 inch desk fan which has done nothing to cool the tent down. The ballast is on a shelf outside and above the tent and I have a 5" extraction fan. I thought of buying a lesser wattage bulb (maybe 150w) but it will not be compatible with the 250w ballast. It is strange as it's been very cold and the room/cupboard where the tent is kept has a temperature of 15c/60f. I am at a loss especially as the people where I bought the kit from are very unhelpful. Should I sell everything and start afresh listening to the advice i've been given on this forum or does anyone know other ways to cool the tent down?

  16. I have a friend who is doing their first legal grow in America, however his internet has crashed so he has contacted me to try and find a solution. The Problem is heat! It is a stealth cabinet grow currently with a 125w dual spectrum for 2 plants in 5l pots. They understand that this might not be the best set up but its what they have. Apparently temps usually sit around 85'F or 29.5'C which is quite hot on its own but temps have reached 111'F or 44'C on the odd occasion. The temps are being measured at the average height of the plant, Apparently they are around 2 weeks old (from sprouting) and are an autoflower strain. They haven't browned or discolored and are still a health green and growing daily, however some of the leaves are curling up at the edges and some apparently seem to be almost spiraling around ( not curling under but twisting sideways) not massively but a little. There are 2 80mm PC fans ,one intake and one outtake, which more than cover the cfm needed for the space. So what do you think he should do to reduce the temps? Add two more PC Fans? Also if they were do do this, roughly speaking one fan is in a bottom corner and the other is in the opposite top corner, would the two extra fans if they were to be attached on the opposite side of the cabinet be placed so that the intake are both at the front and outake both at the back or so that both intakes are say bottom right on each side, so from the front one would be near the front and one near the back? Add a PC fan inside to increase circulation? Reduce light hours as they are currently running 20/4 - 20 on and 4 off Also can anyone recommend any threads about building scrubbers/ carbon filters? Would a carbon cooker hood filter work? As apparently it has started smelling not of full flower but a smell they would like to remove. Thanks in advance for any replies!

  18. So the days are going to over 30 im on 18/6 autos flowering plenos vegging. Usually lights off at midday back on at 6pm, this is going to be a problem for the next few days if today was anything to go by, 30 was garage temps at 6pm before lights on intake will only suck in hot air in a hot garage by late afternoon so on days like this I find it easier to knock off a few hrs and run 15/9 from 9pm and wait it out for temps to drop before going back to 18/6. Its not ideal but its better than frying them I guess. Dont want to buy an aircon just for a few days a year, any tips out there from garage growers ?
