whats up,

hey newbud,
yea its getting bad isnt it!
well im running out of room so it has so stop somewhere doesnt it?
im going to be starting to use co2 with my crops,
due to the high temps ive been getting lately i was thinking about how to cool the room,
but if i use co2 i can use the hotter room to my advantage, as co2 works better at higher temps, arount 90f 32c, which is where my temps are at when i seal my room, perfect for co2!,
i just need a reg, im thinking of using a solinoide off a car nos system, i have laying around,
and set it up to work on a timer,

hey lama
no, not mystery meat!
lol.

lol.

You'd think so wouldn't ya but i keep ending up using a little more of the room or " i'll just use this wardrobe for a day or two" which quickly changes to being another room lol.

Lets just say that i can be a little paranoid and i got enough plants at the mo to make me real nervous lol

Nos systems sounds like it'll work.
Do the plants not suffer any heat stress at the higher temps then?
Think i'll stick to lower temps and good airflow for now :)

hey newbud,
oh i think ill be starying within the confines my grow shelf!
we'll see though!
as for the higher temps, plants respond to co2 better at higer temps,
around 30-32c
i bought a small co2 reg and im going to fit the nos solinoide to the reg,
then im going to switch my 12v dc supply from a timer,
i have these laying around so i thought id put them together to save quite a bit!

plants are looking great :hubba::cool:
sounds like you got good conditions for using Co2!
and the cylinoid setup sounds like it will work. but will you need a AC to DC converter for it :confused::rolleyes:

whats up,:)

hey hamster,
no i havent used co2 brfore, but theres a first time for everything!
i have been using it for the last two days now,
and i am actualy very surprised with the results,
my grow room temps are 32c at the moment,
if my bud was in there with out the co2 im sure they would be very happy!
but there loving it, my two sativas have thrown out loads of new bud shoots,
they look healthyer then ever, even with 32c! my rh is about 45%
at the moment im releasing the gas old school style,
i have a tube connected to the valve and i just crack the valve for a few sec a few times a day,
i have my extractor working at half speed, and my large room fan
on full power,
also the room is sealed apart for my cool air inlet,
i will be getting a reg for the bottle soon,
ill put the solinode on then and connect it to my 12v dc supply.
then plug that into a timer!:p
that should save about $150 yeaa:cool: !

hey lama
this seems to be a great way to deal with temps,
and its got to be cheaper then going ac?
a 20lb bottle should last 3months or so,
and are not expensive to fill,about $30 or so
but you might have to buy a tank $80
a reg with a timer and solinode and hose about $150
so for $260 investment, you can get 3 months of high temps, before refilling
but the best part is your bud ill grow 30%-40% better,
that has to be cheaper then buying an ac and running it

i would recommend co2 to anyone who is serious about growing weed,
who grows in an area that can be sealed, no spraying it in your attic!:rolleyes:
and if you have a room that you have to cool all the time,
if you have to heat your grow room most of the time, get a gas burner,
ill try to get some pics of the new growth soon.

hey guys,
i went for a watering trip today,
brought a backpack lined with trash bags and filled with water,
and added nutes,epson salts and ph'd the water,
they are getting good sun from 10 am till 7pm and shade for the rest,
they seem to be looking well today,
some show good growth for these outside temps,
i have good shelter for them so they dont get battered by strong storms,
which we had for a few days,
i have a few white rhino plants in my flower room now,
there only about 2 foot high and are super croped,starting to flower nicely.
i had a few kc 36 cuttings root for me in 3 days,
the fastest time i have ever got cuts to root,nice.:cool:

Lookin great over there swift. 3 days to root some clones! Wow, that's certainly a time saver. Those white rhino plants should turn out awsome :aok: . Your outdoor spot looks like such an awsome spot to grow. Wish I had a spot that got that much light!
