Grow Tent Etiquette

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

Do you take your shoes off before you enter your grow tent or grow room?

I always have my shoes off in the house anyway,
But If you have been outside then I suggest taking off your shoes to avoid tracking critters from the yard inside.

Every Sunday I take the girls out to be sprayed with Neem oil or Captain Jacks. while they are out I vacuum and wipe everything down with alcohol. Yes I leave my shoes on.

When I enter my grow room it is like I am visiting a very good friends house. Today after unzipping a tent and removing the front high CFM pole to step in, I realized that I was grinning from ear to ear. When I thought about it a little more I snickered. I wasn’t even high.

Oh… and my shoes were off.

It seems like in most journals and grows that I have read the pictures show the light fixtures hanging left to right.

I have 2x led fixtures in my tent. The are hanging left to right if standing looking at the tent entrance. I feel like this inhibits access into the tent and am probably going to hang them front to back. Does it matter on the orientation? Am I missing something obvious?

Every single time. I also wipe it down after each grow.

What time of the day do you all run your light schedules? I run my 18/6 to be lights on at 3pm and off at 9am. I work during the day and this allows the lights to be on a couple hours before i get home. I am trying to figure when I want my 12/12 to start and stop and am curious how others do it.

I went over a friend’s house. Greeted the dog in the back yard . He followed me in the house and to the grow room. As we entered , my friend’s head popped off with anger. He gave me a lecture about mold ,disease , and, bugs. He went on and on ,talking about the cucumber plants in the backyard. ( I didn’t know cucumber plants are notorious for mold) . I caught him eyeballing a Tyvek suit in the corner. That’s when I had to put my foot down , if he wanted me to put that on I was leaving. Now that I have my own grow , I understand.
