Hello Everybody!!! This is my first time trying to grow Sum Ganja!! All of my Seeds Germinated well.
1x White Widow
1x Blue Cheese
1x Critical
1x Sweet Deep Grapefruit.

After Germination i planted them Yesterday 6/1 in 18oz cup full of Pro-Mix BX Soil. I Did make a big mistake by leaving my A/C off the first day i turned on my 400 Watt Grow light. What happened was i came back from work(9 hours later) and when i opened my door OMG! was it freaking insaly hot in my room. the grow tent was really warm and when i open the tent and check the temp it was reading 111% and 20 % Humidity(yea crazy). I Then turned on my A/C and cooled everything off. now the humidity is @ 25% and Temp is 85%. Now im Waiting for the Seeds To Sprout.

I read on here the other day not to use your filter until you need it for smell bcuz it will slow down the exchange of fresh air. So in a sense IMO it won't remove heat because the best way besides a cool tube to remove heat is air exchange. I could be wrong but in theory it sounds good:confused2:

That is exactly what I do. I am flowering and with the lights on I keep it around 72 to 75. I leave it run during dark period and bring the temp down around 62 to 65 because I read that at night during flowering you want your temp to drop 10 to 15 degrees becuase it stimulates the flowering hormones by tricking the plant into thinking winter is coming. Sounds like your germination is coming along great! Best of luck to ya!:watchplant:

Looks like your well on your way. I had a similar thing happen to me a couple weeks ago. I started 4 ak-48's and there was a stick below 1 and it stopped the tap root dead in it's tracks. :eek: I learned real quick to make sure there is nothing above or below. I have four more starting but before I planted the beans I used a pair of sterile tweezers to make sure the path is clear. Food for thought for next time. Your babies look great. They don't appear to be stretching at all. All looks good. Green mojo comin your way! Good luck:lama:

Update!- So Far So good, getting my inline later this week with my fox farm nutes. Sweet Deep Grapefruit is abit slower than the other 2 but its still growing.

Quick question when it comes down to nutes, Do i mix em together?( i know not all three but i got a feeding shedule online and somtimes it has 2 of em together)

Try to buy a t5 setup and use it until the end of veg. then remove it and use the hps for flower.
Try to get also a extractor and attach it to the cooltube and remove that hot air from your room.
Both this things will help you with your bill in a relative short-term.

How big is your tent? If you have space for 4' fixtures, I would recommend using those. If you can only fit 2' fixtures in your tent, you might want to check this one out--20,000 lumens and less money (these are the PL-55 double tubes):

Theese would fit in perfectly in my grow tent, i was wondering if they would really help out in veg and would grow well? once i switch to flower i use my 400 watt hps correct? Also i dont want to mess up my digital ballast when i turn it off i just unplug it and it wont dammage or is there a better way to turn it off?
