Will Plant Continue to Grow at 85 degrees?

  1. On Friday I finally got around to building a nice, home made carbon filter. I followed this guide I came across earlier and it worked out wonderfully:


    Since I installed it, however, because of the additional restriction on my two fans the temperature has risen from a consistent 79 degrees to a consistent 85 degrees. It does not vary much or over 85 degrees. Plant seems healthy and doesn't seem to be struggling to sustain itself at this temperature but will it continue to grow and be healthy through flowering (which I am about to start)?

    Thanks for any tips GC'ers :cool:
  2. 85 F shouldn't be much of a problem... are you able to get it down to 70s at night? That would make a world of difference for THC maturation.

    If at 85 F for the start of flowering make sure you don't let it get too cool at night or you'll get a lot of stretching resulting in really stringy fluffy buds. For the first 3 weeks of flowering or until intial stretching stops keep the temps consistantly around 80-85 F at night if you are at 85 F during the day, that will minimize stretching. Then once stretching stops get it really cool at night if you can so that the resin glands can grow and mature.

  3. Absolutely no problem.
  4. Thanks for the tips guys. It is very good to hear that this will work. It took a lot of time to get my intake/exhaust setup as I wanted it, then even more time to later implement a carbon filter. If I could do it all over I would have opted for bigger fans. Perhaps after this grow I can spend a little time and get a bigger set of fans in there.

    As you predirected the plant hasn't had any problems with these temperatures. Thankfully it doesn't seem to get any higher then 85F.

    I just started 12/12 for my first time ever today :hello:

    Plant is about 2 months old.
  5. Hey just a little update for this thread:

    1. One of my two fans was not functioning I later found out. I corrected that, which has helped and

    2. Since I started 12/12 temperatures have been staying in the low 70's when the lights are off and the high 70's when they are on. It's been great :hello:
