I have a 4x4 tent in my garage, 22x22 with the ceiling sheetrocked. When I close up at night, is there enough fresh air till morning when I open the doors?

my tent would have 3 fans---1 for fresh air exchange is critical---you may be ok for the time being---and a 2nd oscillating fan blowing the plants around remedies powdery mildew, makes it rough on insects, and strengthens the plants branches---the bigger the plants get---the more fresh air exchange CO2 they need---3rd fan for exhaust

...think there's enough fresh air in that closed up garage until morning?

I've got the tent environment going just fine.

Thinking I may have to crack a window, or put a vent in the wall to bring some in.

imo---open windows and doors invite unwanted insects---if the intake air is run thru a filter (nylon stocking) and exhaust creates negative pressure---you be good to go

Perhaps I don't yet have the inside dialed. Just using the bottom passive for intake...and I'm getting some critters.

Id be surprised if you had any issues. Most garages are drafty and not air tight at all but if you have a window in there to open you might as well crack it a little.

I grow in a small room in my basement and in the colder months I do not exhaust the air outside and I keep the door to the room closed. As long as you have an exhaust fan sucking new air into the tent you should be fine in my opinion. I know you didn’t ask but I would personally get some smaller pots and carefully transplant the seedlings into them. A huge pot like that will limit what you can do in the long run. 5 plants will get pretty unruly jammed into one large pot. Also it is harder to properly feed them. I use 3 or 5 gallon pots as my last transplant pot a couple weeks prior to flowering.

The plan is a SOG in there, if it doesn't work I'll reload after harvest. Are they that picky they need their own meal?? Crazy women! I don't want to transplant but thanks for your advice. I do have 4 outside in those pots with 1 in each.

I've already lost track of all my missteps but at least they won't happen again...

It is coming into focus on your transplant suggestion. These have been in 2 weeks. Does anyone reading think they'll survive a move?
What are the curled leaves doing?
The one seems to be doing fine.

Please ignore my previous comment about having my tent environment dialed.

18-6 now but I'll start that tonight. Strain doesn't matter on the 24 hour light? These are feminized WC.

I'll go read up.

Sorry. A lot of people do 18/6 too. Just making sure you aren’t doing 12/12. As kyfarmer said dig 3-4” around them and very gently put them in a smaller pot. Try not to disturb the soil within a couple of inches of the stem. I was able to separate and transplant a couple of marigolds and a cucumber plant about the size of your plants yesterday and they are happy in my garden. Just be careful( I sound like a broken record)...
