    Thanks in advance
    So I ordered a tent and 400 watt light switch my girls to their new home but the next morning I open tent they look dead every branch bending over went brought a box fan helped a little tried the light again sane results so I just put the cfls in the tent and major results why would they respond in such a way here are some pics love to hear thoughts
  2. Can't upload pictures yet I will keep trying
  3. What are the temps? Do you have an extraction fan running?
  4. I have a box fan running
    Never had the light on yet for more than two hours cuz how they respond
  5. Could the light be to bright or strong cuz I put the cfls in the tent and they stand back up

  7. 400 watt HP's for two hours fell over
  8. I have a box fan could the light change be the problem
  9. You'll need to exhaust the hot air, not just circulate it.
  10. What if I cut a hole in top of tent
  11. Doesn't it already have exhaust vents, or is it a homemade tent? You need a fan to exchange the air, the tent wont build up negative pressure on its own. You need something that will circulate it at every 2 minutes for a large room(8'x10'), or up to 2 times per minutes for a small tent(2'x2'-4'x4') to so if you have a 4'x4'x7' tent then that's 112ft cubed so you'll want at least a 225cfm inline or vortex fan and if you use a carbon filter you'll want to go even higher to compensate for the added resistance.

  12. Thanks my girl asking when I'm getting the carbon filter anyway I'll get the fan with the carbon filter but till then should I use the cfls
  14. Do what you gotta do, but remember those plant perspire regardless of temperature so you gotta get them fresh co2 somehow.
  15. I changed the light to a 400 MH instead of HP's the like it better still standing[​IMG]
