    going to sound terrible but i dont have a thermometer...inthe post at the moment! was all rushed! so trying to sort it out before proper grow... this was a test run.

    i have from work a fan which draws air in and blows it out small one 6" sqaure but powerfull enough to hold a piece of paper to the back of it. used for cooling electrical panels.....silent.

    no exhuast! was going to put some sort of grille in the shed.

    also just looked at yout grow journal! (epic) could you explain the system with your roots!?

    Thanks man! That was my first grow. I used 3 Waterfarms with a controller kit and recirculating kit. the roots just grow down into the water. I put a air stone in the bottom of each bucket to oxygenate the water. It was crazy how fast the roots started to grow once the hit the water. Its a really easy system to use but its kinda annoying to drain and keep your PH/PPMs constant. I just purchased a GL120 tent and was going to use the waterfarms again until I saw this thread http://www.rollitup.org/grow-journals/219496-64-plant-ebb-flow-sog.html

    You should defiantly get a cheap thermometer in there. But your plants look good you should post some pics.

    Oh I forgot to mention there is a drip ring at the top of each bucket.
