New grower here. I have a grow closet that has a door that opens to the garage. I’ve insulated the closet, added a air-conditioning vent and have a 6" Hyper Fan that exhausts air thru the ceiling to a roof turbine. The closet is air tight otherwise.
I have 150 watt Advanced Platinum LED light and a 600 watt MH/HPS light. I bought the 600 watt light first, decided it generated too much heat while testing, so then started out my grow with the LED.
It’s only be less than two weeks and the 3 plants (the closet is 2’ X 5.5’ and 8’ tall) seem to be doing OK but I just felt like the LED wasn’t producing enough light (very scientific ;)) so I ended putting the 600 watt unit back in the room.
I think I may have not given the LED more time…
Anyway, my daytime temp is around 86 F degrees. I have turned up the speed on the exhaust and I set the ballast at 50% power. Light is about 25" above the plants.
My questions are. Should I worry? is 86 too hot? Should I switch back to the LED? Should I provide another source of fresh air? (right now air is pulled from the A/C vent),
I welcome your comments.
