25) During the grow period, am I going to be away from my grow space for holidays, vacations etc?  How will I make sure my plants are ok during that time?
i wont b away

im trying 2 setup my own grow area(after having a bust up with a so called friend).

I've got a few ideas but just want 2 know if this setup would work... im thinking of getting a nft 1010mmx485mmx205mm tank (im hoping 2 get 8 plants in it ,sog),with a 600w hps light(4inch cool tube),12 aero propagation unit under a 2 tube t5 Florescent light.all of this in a 1.20m x .60m x 1.60m space (ill separate part of the tent 4 the veg/cuttings).

the cooling fan will come from the loft through the light and fan and get expelled out of the loft,the 'fresh air' will come from the outside,through a fan and into the tent directed by the oscillating fan over the canopy.the carbon filter will b placed inside the tent.the temp controller will control the intake and the air going through the shade.

i know there might b height issues but,i cant get a bigger tent as the loft joists etc wont allow a standard size tent.id have 2 build 1 myself which would leave the joists exposed to the heat inside the room .my only other option i think is 2 get all Florescent blue + red ,but id have 2 get a heater(i dont know what type).as i live in a cold area and the grow is in a attic above a garage the temp will fluctuate alot more with the fluorescence's (from what i can gather)

if any1 could tell me if this could work or a better way of doing things please speak up,ive trawled through the forums and books and these are my best ideas taking drawing from.
