My 8x3x6 perpetual indoor garden TIPS APPRECIATED.

So I've finally got all the pieces and everything setup for my small perpetual garden. I am using the vivosun 3x3x6 tent for flower and a viparspectra 4x3x6 2 in 1 tent for veg and clone. It splits into a 3x3 and 3x1 space.
I have a 6 inch ac infinity fan hooked up to a ac infinity carbon filter in the flower tent and a piece of ducting connecting the flower and veg spaces. I'm using the exhaust fan on a high enough setting to pull the air from the veg tent into the flower tent and exhausting outside. I also have a 6 inch ac infinity fan pushing air into the veg space to help with the airflow. A 6 inch vivosun oscillating fan in the flower tent. (DO NOT RECOMMEND). One i got was a lemon and stopped turning. And using genesis fans off Amazon in the other tent and one blowing on each light.
Now for the lights.
I'm using a Mars Hydro fc3000 in the flower tent and a bloom plus bp1000 in the veg tent.
Vivosun 2 bulb t5 fixture in the clone/seedling section.
I am using a 5L humidifier in the bedroom itself to control the humidity at 50-60%. My temps stay 75-80F. I also have a 6 inch max fan and carbon filter in the bedroom to help when I have to open the tent for working in there. Im pulling around 650 watts off one outlet with a belkin surge protector to run the entire setup at max power which i haven't got to do yet. Well I think that covers everything.

Looks like everything is coming together. If you happen to run into higher humidity in the flower tent.. I would suggest that you reverse the direction of air flow to pull from the flower room, and into the veg room. Late flower calls for lower RH that you would veg with. 35-40% is usually good for late flower til harvest while veg can run up from 45-60%. Not sure if it makes a big enough difference. Someone else checking this out may be able to assist further on that subject. I could be wrong, and you may have no issues. I just try to be cautious.

Ya I may have to figure that out. The veg area does stay a little higher rh vs the flower area because of where I have the humidifier

I’d just crack the bottom vents on both tents and hang your filter in the flower tent.
Then pull all the smelly air from the flower tent out to a Y duct joint above the tents and put your 6” fan in the veg tent pulling out to the same Y joint.
You’ll still get fresh air in through the vents and no stink in the room.

Hope it makes sense.

Ya I'm leaving a few vents open in the veg tent. I was gonna use a 6 inch inline fan to pump air in but it makes the tent have too much air into and the exhaust in the flower can't pull it out fast enough I guess. But I am waiting on proper ducting to get here so that could be my issue. I have them connected by a small 4 inch piece of ducting I had around the house. Got 6 inch on the way. But I don't think I'm gonna need a inline fan with the setup

So, I messed up and too many seeds a month ago. So I had to buy a carbon filter for the veg tent as well now because I am going to have to finish my autoflowers in there, as I won't have space for them in the flower tent in 2 months. I have tied down all the branches of the little kush autoflower bush. The trellis net in the flower tent seems to be working well to make my plants canopy really fill out. We have started to sleep in the spare room a couple nights a week to increase the co2 levels in here haha.

Now I have 3 carbon filters and fans in total for my garden setup
Hopefully no odor.
I'm also thinking about scooping a shop press and adding heat plates to it to press my own rosin. Would be cool to have a full grow and solventless processing area in a small apartment. HUSTLE ha

Oh and I added hooks and screws around the middle of the room walls to divide the bedroom into 2 spaces if friends or family decide to come visit, they'd still have a bed and I wouldn't have to worry about light leaks.

The bp is doing damn good to be in a bigger space than expected. Good shit.
