How to help with heat stress?

Any advice on how to help plants that are heat stressed? Also, what are your preferred Temps for day and night?

Keepin it outta such intensities would help :laughing::laughing:

But seriously. @Mrcrabs is in the hellish part of the country. I think he uses aloe vera (mixed into water) to help. Among other natural additives. Also believe silica helps strengthen plants to fight environmental issues.

@Myfriendis410 @Budbrother @AAA @Big123 all dabble outdoors and may can help more

is this indoor or outdoor? may be a silly question but any idea why they are heat stressed? if indoor, is this in a tent? is it in an unconditioned space? what kind of ventilation do you have.

they def look a little crispy

Its indoors in a 4x8 tent. I have an infinity 8inch inline fan plus an oscillating fan. I was having trouble keeping the temperature high enough during the dark period. I tried using a small ceramic space heater. It has a " thermostat " but it’s crap. The temperature will shoot up until the exhaust kicks on. So I shut it off. Then the temperature drops within an hour.

U want it between 70-80 for daytime temps. Some strains a bit warmer. Some a bit cooler. But never overly uncomfortable. May want to look into a diff space heater. Or try heating the room the air is being vented from.

@PurpNGold74 how cold can it get during the dark phase? In your opinion.

My plants do just find in the upper 50s. Albeit a tad slower. In veg Id try to keep it over 60-65 tbh.

Do you have the controller? I set my (six inch) to trip at ‘high’ and set at 76F: when lights are on it does a fine job of maintaining 75 ±1. When lights go out, fan does not run and temps drop in my space to 65F. Seems to be doing a good job.

@Myfriendis410 not a part of the topic but regarding the infinity fans, is there a way to let’s say run them at a constant fan speed of 1 then have them kick up based on temp or humidity parameters?

Mine won’t do that. Once it hits it’s target temp it ramps down to zero. I would suggest adding a smaller inline and leave it on or put on a timer for air exchange. That said I don’t worry about night hours and just leave it be.

The new controller 67 will do that. You can set a minimum speed and it will ramp up slowly as the perimeters are exceeded and go as high as you let it. https://www.acinfinity.com/hvac-home-ventilation/whole-house-fan-systems/in-stock-on-january-30-2021-no-pre-order-controller-67-temperature-and-humidity-fan-controller/

i use a Pymeter Digital Temperature Programmable Thermostat Dual temperature Outlet. (sorry for the long description but that is the easiest way to find it in a search).
Basically, it has two temperature probes and two outlets. you can use one for your heater and one for your fan, set On/Off temps for each. i use it to control two different fans in the two compartments of my tent since i am in conditioned space, i dont require a heater, i just need to turn the fans on once the temp gets too high.

Appreciate all the responses. So do you guys think it can recover? Or should I germinate another seed ?

Thats a tough start. If you see green, normally she can recover. But it may be more time efficient to drop another. Hell grow 2!

I don’t think that has to do with heat stress unless it’s over 100 degrees… have you gave it any nutrients… ?? I’m guessing nute burn

Nice find! I’ll be buying one or three later this month!

I don’t know how much time you spent looking, but the best thing is the app. You can control the controllers using your phone.

You can set the parameters

View and export graphs

View logs and set alarms. (Use your imagination)

The new controller can do just about anything you ask of it except for one downside, they made the controller 67 Bluetooth instead of WiFi so the range is limited. If they had made it WiFi so you could monitor and set perimeters from anywhere you have connectivity it would make a great controller outstanding

Im new at this and won’t pretend to know it all. I’m using a local organic soil. I haven’t added any nutes. It happened a day after I moved the heater closer. So I just assumed it was from the heat.

I’m sorry. I haven’t read… or seen what organic soil your using… but what I’ve learned is that at the beginning stage… you really don’t need much nutrients… and yes a heater can cause such a thing… no worries buddy… what organic soil are you using and what’s the Npk on it??? @detroitpwp3
