@Bugus_Monkey not intentionally in any way. The soil tent naturally runs at about 75f during lights on and within a degree or 2 during lights out (20/4 light schedule). The air conditioner is not piped in to this tent at all, but it does get intake from the lung room that the larger aero tent exhausts in to. The exhaust from the aero tent is air conditioned air.

The aero tent does have a dedicated 5500btu air conditioner piped in to it. This helps keep my reservoir temps in check, and lowers the ambient temp caused by having 600w of LEDs running during lights on hours. The AC does kick off during lights out, which are during actual nighttime hours when the outside ambient temperature is lower.

I'm in New Mexico, so the daytime temps this time of year are still ~80F. In July and August we were getting 90-100F days almost everyday. The AC unit really allows me to dial in my grow room temperatures as I see appropriate.

Soil tent day 84. Both plants got the chop this morning. They're hanging now in a tent. I monitoring temp, 74f, and humidity, 60%. Shooting to dry trim these in 7-10 days and hoping for at least 130g to match my last harvest, looks like it'll be between 130-160g all said and done. I'm happy with how they came out this time. They ended up more dense and less popcorn bud at the bottoms. Probably due to multi topping in the early stages of the grow.

Soil tent day 0. 2 ILGM Wedding Cake autos just about to break ground in the next 24hrs. Same grow specs and environmentals as the 2 that came down today.

Aero tent day 41 of flowering.

Soil tent seedlings have popped ground in their rapid rooters. Tomorrow they go into soil and we'll count that as day 1.

Drying tent temp 70f RH 55%.

Wedding Cake trimmed and jarred. 159g total weight. Looking back through my notes from my previous grow under the exact same conditions and environmentals this is a 20%+ increase over my last grow of this strain (131g harvested in July 2021), and puts me over 1g/w in a 2x2 tent, soil grow, under 150w of LED. Successful grow in my book!

Day 50 of flowering in the aero tent. Reservoir pH and EC is dipping pretty rapidly. I'm adding 2 to 2.5 gallons of solution twice per day to keep reservoir temp, pH and PPM in check. I'm repeating week 7 feed chart this week and will likely do the same next week because I think these ladies are still feeding quite heavily and week 8 feed chart calls for a pretty drastic reduction in nutrients. I'm guessing these will go 11 weeks or so. I plan to keep following the week 7 nutrient chart until these have 1 week left before chop.
Temp 72f, res temp 67f, RH 40%, pH 6.0

@Bubba this is the one I run in the larger tent. It brings the RH down a few points. I live in a dry climate, so I get more benefits from a humidifier when needed, than I do from the dehumidifier. It does work for what I need it to do though.
LEEL Dehumidifier 42OZ(1200ml) Portable Ultra Quiet Dehumidifier 2300 Cubic Feet (270 sq ft) 6H/12H Timer Small Dehumidifier for Home Basement Bedroom Bathroom Closet RV Camper https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08T9FN45...abc_18GFWGYW9FDRZXCEM4AD?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Yes I run a airplus dehumidifier and I drain it in a 5 gallon bucket it keeps the room at 40-45Rh along with window ac unit so the temps that are going in the tent kept everything pretty good temp and humidity wise so u guys put the dehumidifier in the tent ? I use a humidifier during veg that I do keep in the tent but dehumidifier in tent also????

I put one of those small ones in a 2x4 and it shaved a couple points off. Humidity outside is lower now, not as much of problem. When it was higher I considered putting another in it, but decided next summer I will get a larger one for the room.

Day 52 flowering in aero tent. Still seeing rapid drop in pH in the reservoir (res drops by .5pH every 12 hours). They're taking up a lot of water, over 2 gallons every 12 hours. Topping off reservoir with nutrient solution that has not been pH adjusted brings res up to ~6.0pH and I just let it drift down from there. I'm starting to see some plumping happening and a little bit of fall fading happening in the Chemdawg plants. I'm thinking we'll get a colorful show in this tent over the next couple of weeks.
pH 6.0, res temp 66f, RH 45%, temp 73f

Soil tent day 10.
Temp 74f, RH 55%

Pictured: full aero garden, lower branch of Fam95 looking glistening, Chemdawg top cola, and soil tent.

I think we might have the same tent and fabric pots. I thought they were my pictures for a split second. Nice setup my friend βœŒπŸ’šπŸ‘½
