Hi Guys,

I am currently at 4000 feet plus above sea level. Does this kind of altitude have a negative effect on seedlings/ plants?

I want to grow indoors with hydro and H.P.S. temps will hopfully be "normal".

Thanks Everyone.:wave:

altitude does have some affect the air is thinner so the plant may grow slower but im sure it will be fine.

Thank You Defspec.:wave:

I'm new in this area, and after going for a long walk, and watching weeds and plants around the house, things do seem to be growing slower than they would at sea level,( I brought some house plants with me,( NOT weed.) Also, it's coming into winter , and it's a good deal colder here than where I came from.

So I guess what I'd ask is: Will cranking up the heat in the growroom solve the problems, (so far I've had very slow/bad germination results,) or is there still a penalty for growing in higher altitudes.

Thanks again,

Bube

It's more about how thin the air is. Shouldn't be a huge deal though.
