i want to get a co2 setup but heat will be my main prob.the only way to get the heat out is i leave my door open when lights are on and closed when off.u can se in my pics i have a 15inch fan above my main hood wich works good my temps stay at like 75/85 now.but when i do the co2 door has to be closed and fans off.
i was thinking if i can just leave my 400w mh light on and have the other lights off.my room gets in the 90s with door closed and just that light on.it will only be like an hour or so.i asked my girlfriend that i want an enclosed hood with 6 inch duct for christmas ho ho ho

Hey SGT!!

Tennnnnnnnnnn hut!!! All buds at attention!

Welp dude, good job so far. Heat is a problem. The main issue with keeping that door open is light leak during flower. Also probably going to get a little humid once those plants build up sufficient mass. I'd work on addressing it now so it doesn't become a major issue when it's critical.

Good luck!

ya heat is mjr problem.what i do when flowering is i close the door when the lights go off.i usually set my time schedule 6am.6pm,im from the east so its dark here at 6pm and if i get home to late b4 i can close the door there is no ambiant light comming in, but i am good at keeping the door closed when lights are off.then when lights are on at 6am i open the door.its a pain in the but.but it works,i have a panel of insulation that i stick in the door with mylar and one side of it.it closes of half of the door.and top is open for air to blow out thanks TBG ya that whould **** if i had all females.but i have learned to do more seeds so i have more chance to get more females.i can pack 8 3gall pots in there.i have 13 going now hope to get 8 females.if i get more my buddie grows also,i told him ill hook him up with some femals.

what is good humidity during veg and flower?

i am at 34/40% humidity now.i took some pics of the piece of insulation.one pic you can see the mylar.and the other pic its in its place

If i'm not mistaken i think your humidity should be higher than 50% during veg and 50% or lower during flower.

It has been suggested to me by the guy at the local hydro store. Take a bowl of water and stand 1 or 2 sponges up in the water with half of the sponges above the water line so as to draw water up the sponges and into the room. This just a suggestion and it might help. :farm:
