Hey Growers!

After the chat with @Mpower11 and a little research. I decided to add more “P-K” to my feeding as the low levels were pointed out on my previous feeding.
I’ve added Terp Tea Bloom 3-7-4. Only adding 1.5 tsp at the moment.
The day after feeding, the plants seem to be responding well:

I want drop the temperature in my tent. 87 is the temp it likes to averagely sit at. I don’t think this will be ok come flower time and I kinda think the ice cream cake doesn’t like the current temp (plant on bottom left). Any advice is appreciated.

Now off to research about these worm castings lol.

@Merle_Carsten
Yeah that’s a home built humidifier using house of hydro mist maker.

Thanks! I’ve got 3 fans in the tent. 2 above the light and 1 clamped to a pole blowing on the plants. I also think I’ve been doing ventilation all wrong this whole time. I’ve kept the tent sealed with the inline fan on during lights on.
This caused the walls of the tent to sink in with very little fresh air coming in. I didn’t think much of it at first. Then, I opened up the flaps at the bottom of the tent. This dropped the temp by few degrees, the walls aren’t as sunken in, and now it is sucking in fresh our. Not just pushing out stale air. I think I’m going to get a little water evaporator to bring down the temp a few more degrees.

Sidenote-
I have to have the inline fan on at full power (10) or else the temp slightly creeps up.
The light is currently at 80%. Worried for when I go to 100%.

I Think that was a good idea.

87 is to hot for Veg also

Worm Castings is the king of soil… This 100% should be in your top dress mix

What size is your tent?

You need 2 carbon filter fans 6 inch looking in parallel

First one fresh air in

Second one Exhaust air out…

In veg you can dim your lights a bit then lower the lights… This will reduce heat

I’ve got the following:
3 disc mist maker from House of Hydro (perfect for 4x4)
25-gallon tote (water lasted 10 days)
AC Infinity Axial 1238 muffin fan
AC Infinity fan speed controller
Inkbird Humidity Controller IHC200

I just followed the instructions in the video. Super simple. Cost was about $199:

So ideally, I’d want the exhaust fan at the top of the tent and fresh air coming from the bottom, correct? I’m not seeing too many setups with 2 carbon filters and fans. Other than the lights that have built-in intake/exhaust. Been doing a lot of research on air circulation. Seems like the proper number of fans, placement, & direction, along with the exhaust is the key. And of course the cfm math.
I guess by not having an intake fan I am making my exhaust fan work harder.

Correct something like this

You don’t have to use carbon filter but you will have 0 smell if you do

Make sure your fans are variable speed and you can adjust them to get the right pressure in the tent. You want exhaust like 10% stronger than intake.

See the control

Or you can Ac it and be just crazy like me and do something like this. But I really don’t think you need to do this.

Hope this helps

I also use a similar portable A/C unit with a modified duct. Works great to get temps back down to ideal ranges.
