    Ahaa we have same cool tube, mines had its little wings put on and is yours connected? I think the glass alone is help though from heat is it?
    Nice plant bro what is she? I have too much going on with 4 but am clean out of percy from last lot and kinda panic potted lol.
    Your tent looks amaizingly clean sir v good. What watt is your bulb? Mines 600 hps and I seed, Veg and flower under it. :) nice grow.

    Also you got nice humidity in there how you achieve that? I am at unreadable (below 30%) at 29c daytime) : hot and dry poor girls) : nights cool but 4 hrs only.
    Ps a "photoperiod " plant, ie non-auto will be ok at 20/4 light dark seed/veg will she? She's only ickle and seems to enjoy the light. I dunno if I asked but what strain are you growing. Peace
     

  5. Aha, We also have the same Carbon filter i think lol. Yeah I have the little wings for it, but I cant find the bits to connect them atm lol it will get done eventually.

    Yeah, the glass helps because you can just blow the hot air away, i love it.

    My plant is a CH9 Green Bud freebie i got, just a tester really to get my tent setup perfect.
    Also using a 600w HPS. Duel spectrum so using it from start to finsih, the same as you.
     
  6. First off, I have a separate Humidity thing for Lizard tanks so I can get a better reading, its usually a couple % above my other one. I think its just hit & miss really, plenty of fresh air being pulled in. With the lights off it goes quite high, 60% maybe.

    Yeah, should be fine at 20/4 lighting, but there is alot of growers who disagree which is best. I personally go with 18/6 as ive read alot of good things about it.

    You did indeed ask what strain, its a CH9 Green bud.
    Got some others waiting to be seeded:
    Pineapple express
    Cheesy Dick
    Berry Bomb
    Auto Blueberry
    Sour Jack
    OG13
    Blueberry gum
    La Musa (Auto)
    Madness

    You have a bigger thent than me, Bigger tent = easier to cool with a single light. I NEED a cooltube with my 600w. even with a 5" vent system with my open reflector, i feel like im on a camping holiday, roasting marshmellows in the tent lol.

    Not happy today! Timer messed up & light was on over 12 hours!! Need 2 toke some of this white cheese I got lol.

    Luckily, I only started 12/12 on sunday & have 3 spare timers.

    On the plus side, temps where i live have dropped a bit in the East so should help with some temp issues. May have to invest in a little clip on fan to hang near a window, think that would help?

    Edit: Just found this product, its a USB or battery powered "mini air cooler" Maybe worth a shot at £4 a pop. http://www.colubuy.com/gbp/usb-battery-2-purpose-mini-palm-air-cooler-snowman-gray-p12221.html

    Ah East eh? I'm a Yorkshire man born n bred but moved to EA 3yrs ago to be "coastal" ! Could do with forming a clan if you are east anglia :) only so I can swipe some white cheese :)
    The fan maybe worth it yeah, I love this site, love looking at pics of setups etc and products people find. The rhino inline above is my next buy though.
    I messed my dark period up today! I've a roof light in area my tents in and I forgot to turn it off. At least I've only myself to blame I HATE it when timers die.

    So you run the rhino with a carbon filter and the 5"fan for intake? I think I remember the pic ....do you pop it in a vent space of tent? Is that you? Love it another idea I'm pinching :)

    Am in on those and will grab 5. Be good doin same strain as someone else at same time.
     
  18. I am indeed east. about 10 miles from cromer (wont give exact details for obvious reasons lol but ive sent a friend request so feel free to PM me when ever)

    Yeah i may have to look into it, anything that cools the room temp outside my tent is a plus, dont really have £200 for A/C lol.

    La Musa is a Freebie from the tude. Strain is by Delicious Seeds. Believe it is a Auto version of belladona.

    I use the tude mate, love them. Never had a problem. Got a sick G13 labs shirt today with my latest order.
