    What is the ideal temperature for maximum growth and prosperity for the vegetative state and flowering? I know some strands can prosper under different conditions but i just need a general idea. Thank you, any suggestions are appreciated.:blsmoke:

    Ideally you are looking to maintain 75F during the lighting period.

    this should drop to 65F during the dark period.

    as for humidity you are aiming for 40-60%.

    My grow bible says temps about 75 are good, up to 85 are great, but over that is too much.

    I hear aim for 75 Degrees. Of course give or take about 5 degrees and youre fine.

    Duece.

    so would it be fair to say that if the temps go into the 90's that it would slow the flowering development to a crawl? or even a stand still?

    not questioning the bible but I dont understand the thinking behind this in several places where weed grows outdoors naturally the temps can and do exceed 100, is it more about substained temperatures?? Even in nature during the course of the day you can have a 20+ degree temperature swing,

    I think to flower it has to be cooler as well as have a 12/12 light. I checked the climate in mexico the summers there are "insufferably hot and humid as the norm. In consequent, Winter offers the most excellent beach weather as daytime temperatures average around mid-eighties while nighttime temperatures average around sixties". which also would be when it's dark longer at night. So it's not so much temps during the growth period, as it is during the flowering. I'm having a fit with mine right now. this year is hotter than the last 2 and I cannot get mine (haze #1) to flower worth a dam, it's been since mid march! it gets too hot even with an air conditioner and fans. I may have to wait until the temps naturally get cooler, but i've also had a massive bug problem (white flies and fungus knats) with the temps higher, the bugs hatch quicker. I have to spray eery 2-3 days. Flourescent lights are looking like a better option to work towards as with the temps rapidly rising yearly I can't imagine it will get better. is anyone else noticing an effect on their grows due to climate change?

    Many right answers.

    Nature is not ideal. Imitating Ideal nature is ideal.

    77-87f daytime 19 hrs
    63-73f nightime 5 hrs

    this is perfection for North American and European Climate. Humans and Plants alike. (Think of the hand beneath the light to check light distance trick)

    Go by your plant. Obviously if it is Big Bud or NL for example these temps and times I present are perfect but for something like an equator breed you want to imitate more of that climate.

    does anyone know what happenns if it's to cold? My ave on temp is 19-21 c w/ rh 58-60 Off time round 16c w/ rh of 45-50.
    Any ideas how to raise temp slighty? I switched off xhaust to see if it makes a differnce but i prefer to keep it running caus its my air supply :) ( Room runs at negative pressure) I have kept my osc fan on though. All Imput is greatly appriciated. :)

    I am aiming for 23-24 c bongsmilie:mrgreen:

    88 is to high, and 66 is to low for 88.


    you shouldnt have more tha a 10 degree drop in temp between day and night. even better if you can keep the temp within 5 degrees of daytime temps.


    shoot for a daytime high of 80 to 82

    nighttime 70 to 72

    if feeding CO2 you can raise the daytime temps some.

    I have been pondering this myself, Under the assumption that heat (in excess) will stunt or slow growth. Is a room that is 82-84F on average during the day with a Humidity of around 38-40% in any way going to slow/stunt growth? are these good growth conditions for the plant?

    High temp will most def slow down bud developement and high humidity will slow down production of trichomes as well. IMO ideal temps are about 70-75 and RH should not go under like 40 or over 60. This is the way I run my grows and have always had great success.
