I have read that temperature among many other factors, can lead to the production of more females... Colder usually gives mroe females I read. I'm not sure how cold, or even how cold to make the grow before they actually die, but all I know is colder is better for girls.. And it was a pretty reliable source. A mod of og.com

You need to heat the room, not the plants. Get a good, small volume space heater . . . one of those electric mini square box ones. You want the ambient (room) temperature to be fairly steady, thus the plants will remain around that temp as well.

Hello again Tim, a space heater is a good idea. However, electric heat is very dry and the humidity levels in your growspace will suffer greatly if you do not use some kind of humidifier. Its been my experience that the cold roots can devistate a crops yeild. A plant can handle low temps but the roots must be kept warm. In hydro this is easily accomplished by adding a fishtank heater to the res. but in soil you must maintain a constant ambient temp to keep them happy. I hope this helps a little. gm714
