I am using a 4x4 indoor tent soil is a mix of 3parts organic potting soil without time released nutrients 3 parts peat moss 2 parts vermiculite and one part perrilite the nutes j will be using is the 3 part advance nutrients ph perfect a 6 inch in line duct fan and carbon filter temps are 75-83 night and day wither around 55 for now have humidifier and fan am using the Mars hydro tsw2000 led light

This is day 7 from sprout

Keeping ph of the water at 6 for now

How long does your soil say the nutrients are released? The longer they go, the hotter the mix, and can potentially burn up seedlings. But usually, at about 4 weeks, start testing your runoff PPM’s. Once they drop under 1,000 start feeding.
