Am contemplating attempting a first grow... Please could you critique my planned grow room set up. ..... I have a small to medium spare bedroom which is about 10x12x10 with a 3 speed overhead fan fixed to the ceiling in the center of the room and a window (not overlooked at all) about 3x4 on one wall. My main fear is that it will be too hot as I'm growing in a hot and humid environment. About 40-55% humidity and temps ranging from 23-33 degrees celsius. With the fan on max and the window open I'd say the average temp will be in the high 20's during the day and low 20's at night. The room gets direct sunlight in the morning from about 8am until 11am at best but the heat is always there. The door to the room will always remain closed for security purposes. In such a situation where I need to keep the temp down and the window open what kind of artificial light and what strength should I be using? I will be able to stop the bug problem from keeping the window open by using a mozzie screen. This will diffuse the sunlight a little but I can always make up for it with more light power. One more light question. Are halogen lights the same as HPS? Got a few ideas to control the smell but a grow tent/carbon filter seem to be impractical for this set up due to excessive heat. It has been suggested to use a carbon filter but I cannot see a way I can practically do that without having major renovation, knocking holes in the wall which is not an option in this case. I can open the window in 2 ways I can close the window. I can effectively cover the window for the flowering stage. but a fan/filter system seems out of the question in this case. Have looked at using an ionizer http://www.rainbowaire.net/site/product.cfm?id=68778408-188B-2DFC-BADA294541F555F2/decoy grow/gel fresheners ONA PRO GEL GAL BREEZE | GYO Supply to hide the smell from neighbours (town house). On failing all this a tray full of gel air fresheners in each corner of the room plus a few on the windowsill is my back up plan. Are there any other options I should be looking into? I'm currently undecided as to what strains to grow exactly as I have a mix between autoflower and normal feminised seeds. For my first grow I think I'd like something quick and easy but at the same time some of the others are big faves (TD/LSD/DrG) so the temptation is there to load them all in together and see if I can pull it off! These are my choices.... Tangerine dream Dr Grindspoon Afgan Kush Ryder (autoflower) Connie Chung Green-O-Matic Blue Cheese LSD NL (autoflower) Blue Hash Blue Widow Critical (autoflower) Pineapple express Which of these would be easiest to grow? Which of these would be the least smelly? I'm thinking the Afghan kush would be quickest. Is that right? This is a first grow so all comments/questions are welcome. Sorry if this in in the wrong forum but I'm casting my question net wide in the hopes of finding help.
