Well, I am getting into the days total on when I will be a normal person and free of the military. My brother grows in tents I funded for him, and I'm ready to grow my own now that I can go back to taking the worlds best medicine. Im going to go on a much smaller scale than him at first, using just one 4x4x7 tent with 1000W HPS (dimmable lumatek ballast). I am seeking some advice. I have all my supplies/seeds lines up (LSD, Vanilla Kush, OG Kush, Pineapple Express) So right now Im worried about temperature/humidity. I have looked at some small portable AC units (only 5000 btu). Have people had success with these doing the job? Is it even necessary. Ive read of people having humidity issues when using these. I have an active air running into a carbon filter, so I will be moving a decent amount of air. Also, Im not sure if you would set the actual unit inside the tent, or just cool the room the tent is in down more. No pictures for you all...yet. We had heat issues in the 4x8 tent my brother runs, so I expect even more in a smaller area. I keep my house fairly warm (78-80) degrees to save a little money and I run alot of fans. When I am gone during the day I bump it up to 85, or even turn it off (which just wont be an option once I start) I do not know anything at all about humidity/humidity control. My brother has had no issues with having successful grows, but he doesn't report back to me on the levels. I know the goal is 50-60%. I do not like to half-ass things so Im working to make my set up and overall grow as "legit" as possible. Also, Im really interested in scrog. Ive read a TON online in the last year while helping my brother out, but I know NOTHING replaces that hands on, make mistakes experience. Is a scrog too ambitious for a first grow? I have 12 3 gallon smart pots right now, my original plan was to grow 5 plants normally, but the scrog seems like you get the most bang for your buck out of an area the size I'm utilizing.
