Temps are 70-80F It's has gotten hotter but the plants did this in February when it was in the 60's F. I'm running 300 watt MH at 3 feet.
I found another post about this tent!
for anyone looking into grow tents DO NOT BUY AGROMAX GROW TENTS. I have over 10 years experience growing and recently decided to buy a grow tent. I purchased an agromax growtent, a/c unit, and all necessaties to take the grow into a tent. Now i have heard of the outgassing issues in the past, but thought it was taken care off. IT WASNT. NOT BY HTG SUPPLY. my temps, humidity and ventilation are all in check. i have 2 different grow houses, both growing same strain, both getting same water and nute supply, however at house #1 (agromax tent added) noticed weird yellowing mostly looking like a molybdenum (Mo) def. In my lifetime ive never had a Mo def. ive had what may have appeared to be one but never fully progresses to the point where it consumes my crop. at first sign i treated with a micro assembly that includes Mo. after 3 days problem was progressively worsening. after thinking about the unique situation, i came to the conclusion that the only thing that has changed was the tent and ac unit. 5 days ago i left tent fully open, 2 days ago i noticed progression had ceased. I WILL NOW BE THROWING AGROMAX TENT AWAY AND BEGIN TO PROMOTE AWARENESS ON HTG SUPPLIES PRODUCTS. ive never had a problem with them untill now. they began telling me i need to make a warranty claim (fucking really, how does that work). ive decided i want nothing to do with htg's chinese made tent or warranty." 03-10-2012 kejana
Can I have it? I'll pay for shipping. I agree that HTG gear is crap but they sell hundreds of those tents...
nvm, reread that and realized it was a quote lol. But if you decide to throw yours away like they did then I'll pay for the shipping
If worse comes to worse, I'll craigslist it. Fork over the extra money for the Jardin. I bet those hundreds of people are 90% new growers. How many Hydro huts were sold? How many years went by before the problem was solved? People had no idea till someone on IC mag reported it. Then Hydro Hut fixed the problem. People were having problems with a brand of black tubing until someone tested it and found out what the problem was. Agromax should be renamed to The Tent of Death. It's very hard to diagnose gassing off. No one has chimed in yet that actually owns the Agromax 8x4x6.5 tent. I'm not sure if the smaller tents have this problem. It's also possible that some people have not figured out it's the tent. After reading posts from other people and experiencing these weird problems, I'm 98% sure it's the tent. I don't have 10 years of growing exp like the last person I quoted but I do have common sense. When you stop hitting yourself in the head with a hammer, it stops hurting.

If you craigslist it ... disclose, please. I think letting Gastanker have it (since obviously he has an app that won't harm crop) is a pretty good idea. cn

I found a tester for $89 bucks. http://www.homeaircheck.com/
I thought I had a magnesium lockout problem due to the high levels of Calcium in the water in my area. With the RO unit there was no improvement. This points to the tent once again.
This is very interesting!
Grow,Smoke repeat! (Book)
"These VOC's can be absorbed by plants during off gassing. They can cause a variety of issues including but not limited to magnesium uptake problems, bud density problems and literal headaches."

Have completed 2 grows in an Agromax tent with no ill effects to speak of.

I called HTG about my order after this thread surfaced. I'll most likely return it but I hope I can be convinced otherwise.
I just don't understand all the hate for HTG. If they got a bad batch of tents, well, shit happens... But to say all they have is China crap isn't cool.

Gotta check those sources. Notice that was the one and only post that guy has ever made on that forum? And that he was randomly posting on a two year old thread? And the OP of the thread discovered that it wasn't out gassing that was giving him problems... not that he was using an agromax.
How much air are you running through your tent?
