4x4x6.5 ft tent
380 cfm rated carbon scrubber w/ filter
465 cfm inline fan (have controller as well)
Veg - 400 MH (50% to reduce heat)
Flow - 600 HPS (50% to reduce heat)
Passive airflow through three bottom vent flaps and filter/fan extracting air from top of tent (above light) and pushing extracted air out 2 ft ducting. Went as short as possible to create least amount of drag and most amount of air flow. Have used A/C (apartments) to directly push air into fitted vent hole but it is well over 100 degrees here in summer and I am on the second floor, so I simply cannot afford to be using what little cold air I have in tent.
High temps have been 85 (lights on in the middle of the night)
* pretty regular temp but sometimes it dwells at 80
Low temps have reached 75 (ending 1st week flower and 12 dark hours from 12pm-12am)
* I keep apartment at 80 during the day and turn down to 75 about 9pm
Humboldt Soil - Coco and other organic amendments
* Want to start creating my own compost and start early in my growing life using organics - but since I am in an apartment I am already pushing several other limits and I'd rather not have to figure out to deal with that smell too

I have looked into cooltubes and love the idea and its benefits and the DIY methods are plentiful. I will do that when I can afford it. And then I can use my lights fully as I am only able to power them at 50%
These are two clones that I vegged, trained, and FIM'd for a month. I decided they were excellent candidates because of their stem structure, it made it easy to pull the tops below others and force auxins back upwards. Also I did not want excessive stretching so I kept the light close and did the balancing act with training.
I believe this is "Juicy Fruit" but I've know way to know for sure, but if thats right my flower time should be 7-9 weeks so I'm in this for a bit longer hehe
I have a move coming up and will be mid flower - i plan on renting a uhaul and getting everything moved in one trip - but am moving from an apartment...to an apartment. So having the least amount of stress on the plants is my goal but I must balance that with the light cycle and the overall safety-ness (what?!!?) of the trip.
Attached are the photos. Enjoy and thanks for checking out my family/
