what i your setup? lights, venting, medium, temps, climate control, ect?
I built a light tight 6'x8' growroom in my basement. Mylar on the walls and floor. In that room is where i do all my flowering. I have (2) Hydrofarm 400watt HPS. For fresh air i have (2) 6" inline fans bringing in fresh air from outside my house To keep air circulating i have (2) 12" air king wall mount oscilating fans and for my exhaust im using a 8" Vortex inline exhaust fan. My temps usaully hang about 75-78 during the day and 68-76 at night so im doing good with temps so far so good. And i have a part of my basement set up for veg. Just threw some mylar on walls of basement and then draped a piece to make door(not worried about light leakage) In this "room" is a w400 watt Hydrofarm Metal Halide for my veg. I have 5 mothers in there at the moment, also have my clones in this "room". I put my clones under a 2ft fluorescent light 750lumens 20 watts. Have oscilating fan to keep air circulating. No smell so really no need for exhaust. still need can filter
I am using :
a 10 gal tote with an air stone and a 30 gph pump split into 4 net cones for my mother plants, the pumpis 15min on and 15 mins off 24/7.
a 1 gal container with a submersible heater and an airstone hold my clones. I have 8 spaces for clones that accept 1.5 in micro rockwool cubes.
an identical tote as i use for my mothers to put my clones into after they are a couple weeks old until there roots are more developed.
an 18 gal tote with an air stone hooked into a 6 way 42 liter per minute air pump. this also holds 4 net cones. I use this tote as a transitional tote to veg them before i put the plants into flowering.
I have 2 totes identical to the transitional tote that i use for flowering, these also run off the 6 way air pump.
I make my clone under 6500k cfls.
My mother plants, and veg plants are under 5 florescent tubes, i have 4 other cfl's in a reflector.
my plants are flowered under a 400w HPS with a homemade reflector with a remote ballast located in separate cabinet.
My veg and flower rooms are 2'6"x4'6"x5'(WxLxH).
my clones live under a hung cabinet and a 2'x2'x2' area
my plants are flowered in a 2'6"x4'6"x7' light tight area
I use General Hydroponics Flora series, i add super thrive to my veg plants and clones
I use red garden lava rock and rockwool plugs for a medium and 18 inch black knittign sheets rolled into a cone
I have a regular 12" box fan venting my clone/veg room, and i leave the door open for fresh air during the day.
I have an old large squirrel cage fan for my flower room, right now i use a passive intake, but i am looking into an intake fan
I have a 12"x6" homemade carbon filter attached to a dedicated 250 cfm fan
I use black duct work and made some 90 deg turns to light proof
i used a 2x2 frame and panda film to separate my veg and flower room
I am running my hps at night to help battle high temps during the day.
I think i have covered everything, but i am open for questions and suggestiions.
