Tent up and running

Set up the 9x5 Gorilla Grow tent last night and this thing is pretty bad ass! I'm glad I did a lil more research and found this tent as its super heavy duty and 100% light proof. So after running the tent open all last night I kept it closed today and did run into a heat issue. With the doors closed temps were rising above 87 so I had to intervene. Luckily my basement is pretty cool and I hooked up a fan to pump some air into my tent and viola... heat issue taken care of. I'm going to pick up a temperature controller tomorrow to plug the fan into the keep temps above 80 but below 85 for when the CO2 is running. The one problem I am battling is low humidity. Colorado is basically a elevated desert so my humidity is right around 40% when the lights are on. I was waiting for the lights to turn on and humidity was around 60 so I just need to find a way to get it up when the lights are on. I bought a humidifier but its not working too well with the wall mount fans I have going so I'm going to need to play around with the fans going off and on every now and then to keep the humidity up. Will post back tomorrow after I do some experimenting.
