Rule out everything else 1 by 1. Is the temp gauge working correctly, are any of the fan motors running hotter than usual, any other motors involved that could be running hotter, any reason ambient air is warmer,etc.
I have 2 meters in there and they both are saying 86 degrees. I feel like that’s too hot.
What are the highs normally?
Usually low 80’s
And I have the temps dialed in to where they are the same everyday. So when I seen the spike I knew something wasn’t right. It’s driving me crazy now lol
Are you running an inline exhaust fan? Any chance of a partial clog anywhere? No clue dude just thinking out loud lol. Did you have a fan blowing across the top of the light that moved?
I recently had a temp spike from 80ish up to 91. Was told no worries. Most of my fan leafs dried out in a few hours. Now I’m almost 6 weeks into flower and buds are still growing.
Sounds like it’s pretty normal for them to be fairly hot.
Everything is in the right spot. I’ll watch it for a day or so. @dbrn32 what would cause it to run hot like that? I thought quantum boards don’t run hot?
They ’dont run as hot as most lights pumping comparable watts’ but electricity produces heat.
mars light isn’t a quantum board. But the heat is explained by thermodynamics. If you’re having an issue with canopy temps i would take a look at temp of intake air and how well you are exchanging air in your space.
I found the source. One of my fans up top shifted a tad bit off the light so it wasn’t cooling the light off.
Just a daily update on the plants. Gonna give the GDP one more week then they are off to the flowering tent. The Durban Thai is looking good. And the 2 in coco had a little stretch going on which I figured they would so I lowered the light a few inches without getting to close to the big girls. They received a dose of tribus original for the first time today.
Looking great. Nice looking buds!
Thanks guys! Couldn’t have gotten this far without all you great guys and gals! Much love to all of you for the knowledge!
