Cooling problems! Solved?
We bought a 12000btu AC unit today.
I think that should help cool down the room!!
It'll be delivered Thursday. We only have a few more days before the clones are ready!!!
We're also re-arranging the fans and ducting to be more efficient. Might even go so far as to completely move the 600w & floros mothers/clones tent to a completely different room. Shame, we have a pretty sweet floor plan, but the extra space opens other possibilities as well. We'll see, a decision has to be made SOON.
On a surprise, a gift, a clearance sale, and a stroke of luck, brought a CO2 regulator and controller into the fray today!!!!!!!
This brings a whole new element to the grow. Picking up a 50lb tank tomorrow.
RECAP of setup so far
The CO2 rich environment will be kept at 1500ppm @ 80degrees with the newly aquired AC unit and CO2 regulator and controller.

I'm getting PLENTY of light between 2 air cooled hoods with 1000w hortilux HPS bulbs for flowering after 1 week of veg under 2 1000w hortilux MH bulbs.
My areo chamber drains, no DWC/bubble hybrid tub, the roots will be misted 24/7 and suspended in the open light proof chamber. 3 air stones will be pumping fresh air into the root chamber.
I cant quite wrap my head around the nutrient program my collective partner set up, but its a combination of about 20 large jugs of botincare and general hydroponic products. So think tailored extensive nutrient program.
The is reservoir itself is supplied by a RO filtration system.
The reservoir itself will be aerated by a 396gph submersible pump.
Soooooo......I know the flood tables running a SOG will produce a decent amount, but what about my 6 site aeroponic grow?
I think I'm going with grape ape and bubba kush.
GUESSES ON YIELD??
I want some people with growing exp, to tell me what they think I'll get on my first grow with this setup!
Screen of green, or just let 'em grow!???
