Mr. & Mrs. Spy here for another adventure.
I have a 10’ x 5’ room with a speed control 6’ exhaust fan filtering air out of the room (pictures of everything to come.)
We’ll be doing a single ILGM Purple Haze plant in a 27 gal beefed-up tote with a 6 inch net pot along with all the works; 4 air stones, tornado fan for the plant, and a chiller. Room temps will be OK. I also have a dehumidifier if needed, as well as a circulating water pump to circulate the water should I need it.
We have a question about the chiller. I noticed a lot of folks get the 1/4 hp but most have bigger system than what we have. We are curious if the 1/10 hp would work with the 27 gal tote (actual maybe 22 gal.?)
Thanks for the help!!
Actually, I do dB but don’t want to get over loaded right now with this first hydro grow. Still smoking on WW & SD that we grew over a year ago… roughly. Got plenty of lights if we want to expand, thanks to you.
I also have a sink and rack to store stuff in there.
We’re hoping to get a good size grow with this sense it’s such a good size area. I’ve got about a 4’ x 5’ to do whatever I need to with that one plant.
Thanks for any help.
I run 4 13 gal tough tote stations & a 27 gal control res on a 1/10 hp and it keeps up easily. The room temp is pretty steady at 74 or less so the chiller doesn’t work too hard. Insulation on the stations and control res will help significantly.
@HappyHydroGrower I move my 3" net pots up to 4 weeks of veg. I just have to check that the roots aren’t too locked on the air stones and lines. After that the root ball is really hard to fit through the hole without too much damage, so a 6" hole should offer a bit more time.
