Fucking temperature
    #386052 - 03/18/10 07:55 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

So I have some CFLs (~150w) and a HPS (150w) and when I run both at the same time, it ends up like 100 degrees in there :sad:

I have a relatively small closet. I put a fan in there with the plants so they are always getting a breeze while its that hot, but the air circulation doesn't bring down the temperature at all.

What should I do? I can't really cut holes in the closet for air exchange...so, should I just leave the HPS off altogether?

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Uhhh no dude leave the CFL's off and see how much it lowers the temp. You def want that hps on over those cfls if you have to choose.

Hmmm...I could give that a try, but I don't have any chains to lower the damn thing down to my plants. They are doing great from the CFLs...

Do you have any air movement? Like a fan or something?

Yeah, its quite a breeze in there actually.

But the thermometer doesn't change...its just blowing around hot air.

Leave a door open? Or maybe you could pick yourself up a A/C?

I could totally leave the door open, but I'd lose a ton of light. If I could find a way for it to stay cracked open, maybe.

And no, it sure doesn't warrant an A/C :tongue2: Not just yet anyway haha. Just small atm. Room for rapid expansion though :wink:

How many plants are you growing and how large are you trying to grow them? The advantage of hps is a given but if you cannot lower your temps you may just be better off using a bunch of cfls which will definitely lower temps and still get in the area of an ounce a plant.




I have 3 autoflowers (which means the will stay small) and one plant I'm hoping is female so I can make it a mother.

The sex is unknown on all of them for the time being, so the ones that are in there might get thinned :shrug: I'm hoping not, but hey, 50/50 on all of them, right?

And its a really small space. 3 and a half feet tall, 2 and a half wide, 1 and a half deep.


Edit: Cool, 333 posts, and I was last seen 3 seconds ago :vaped:

Well here is what I did to help combat my temp problem.
I was running 3 1k lights in a 8x12x5 cave I had set up in a friends attic. It would crack 112 in the summer in there. My solution was simple, and scaled back would work pretty well for you, but all depends on your medium.
I took 1/2 inch pvc pipe and put a cap on one end, and cut the pipe to about 10 inches. Filled with water or water and my nute solution on feeding days I would freeze them, and then stick the frozen plugs into the soil for a time release water system. That helped with the temps, and I would take the other unused tubes and place them into a 2 liter bottle to melt during the light cycle. The addition of the ice in there would help keep the humidity up, and temps down a bit.
Cheap, easy and simple.

And remember heat rises, so any sort of air pull you can have at the top of your grow area will help keep temps down a bit as well

Btw, I left the door open a tiny crack with the fan on max blowing out the door...it dropped the temperature 15 degrees. :eek:

Sweet! :vaped:

Well it's obvious the hot air needs somewhere to escape too.... circulating hot air, what good would that do?

why would i contribute when you've already provided such amazing advice? its pretty fucking obvious that hot air needs somewhere to go anyway lol, anyone who has at least one grow under their belt knows this, but since you have yet to accomplish that, you are baffled by this mystery.


In the couple of grows ive participated in, a ventilation hole was cut in the top of the closet for the hot air to escape to the attic. a carbon scrubber is added as flowering gets closer.

i dont give a fuck about any sort of ban. i have a life outside the forum lol

i didnt advise him to cut holes in his room, that is simply my experience from the past.
