HEY RBB!!

Glad you made it to the Topia!! I think you will find this forum pretty much Drama Free. I dunno whats up with Canna sites but I feel ya on all the BS. It gets old fast. Hang here in the Grassroots forum for a while. We can definitely use a grower of you're Caliber here.

Thanks Ette!!:loveeyes:

It is getting so hot in the growroom I think I may do a double sized spring grow and take the summer off next year. I turned on my sideways MH last night just to see what temps I'd hit and I got to 100 Deg F.

I turned off the MH and we are HPS only till it cools off.

Yeah its really warm but I don't think one day of 100 Deg Temps will hurt em too badly. I have been running in the low to mid 80's with one 400 Watt Light. The second light really raised the temps.

My fans all ventilate into the same room as the plants so the room doesn't ventilate per say... Usually I have few issues because I grow in a basement, but these hot summer temps are killin me.

I take the outtake and attach it to
a vent that the furnace would usually use
to heat a room upstairs, and exhaust all my hot air
up into a room on my first floor.

keeps the basement cool.

Great Idea SG, but my room in a cinder block room.. no vents in or out... Just a door.. I guess I could vent through the door, But that's less stealthy IMO.

A "Swamp Cooler" is made by stretching a line, hanging a piece of fabric over it (say a towel), putting the bottom of said fabric in a tub of water causing the cool water to wick up, and then having a fan blow on it creating a cooler breeze. It's a balance between a thin fabric to allow of more air but not to thin as to dry out. If you have a small pump you can drip from the top as well and use a thinner medium. The pro systems use a super airy sponge that has water spread on it in a variety of ways. :bow:

Of course in a concrete bunker you might have to remove some of the humidity as well, At night run a dehumidifier. Might be an easy way to make one, don't know . . .
