This will be my second grow in this set-up, with some major upgrades occurring in between as I have baseboard heating, and with the temperatures varying outside between -25c through +8c the last few months it’s been… well, weird.
Until I added forced air from the attic via the duct work my growing room would heat AND vent itself outdoors sometimes spiking the rooms temperature because the baseboard had no chance to maintain the ambient temperature before it vacated… so, with this insane balance I can now have the room at 18c, the tent at 20-23c (lights on), tent at 18-20c (lights off), and MY ELECTRICITY BILL is better for it!
Here is the set-up and my Veg week 1 & 2 images.
Overview of my growing room; a little messy as it was after taking everything apart and re-installing it all after a full wipe-down and sanitization. The 2x2 on the right is my Mother’s tent, and the glowing tub is a DIY clone rooter (airstones/clay aggregate, 2" netpots, LED grow light).
