    What’s up gents. Appreciate all of your knowledge and insight. This is my 2nd year growing and my first indoor attempt. Here is my set-up

    4×4 tent

    6″exhaust through carbon filter

    2-6″ oscillating fans

    King Plus 1500W Double LED

    Growing in Ocean Forest

    Top dress with worm castings

    Using Cal-mag on water days and advanced nutrients on fert days

    Tent is in my garage

    I have 6 plants in 7 gallon fabric pots

    <font face=”inherit”>All plants are from seed ordered through reputable breeder so I think the genetics are good (but I </font>wouldn’t<font face=”inherit”> know good genetics in a seed from crappy genetics)</font>

    Gorilla Glue

    OG Kush

    Amnesia

    Pineapple Express

    Blue Dream

    Skywalker Triangle OG

    I have already learned that 6 different strains can be a pain in the ass, but going to see it through. Gorilla Glue and Pineapple Express are in the 2nd week of flower, the others are just starting. I flipped to 12-12 about two weeks ago. These are also a combination of Autos and photos (another lesson learned). But I have also learned that I can make the plants do what I want (to some degree) by adjusting lighting etc.

    I live in central CA and it gets H.A.F. here. I am wondering why when I grew outdoors last year the plants thrived in 100+ temps as long as I kept them well watered. Given that the plants did so well in such hot conditions last year, do I need to buy an air conditioner to get the temps down in my tent? The hottest it has gotten is 94 in my tent, it usually is around 80-90 in the heat of the day. Do I need to bring this down? (I am trying to avoid buying an AC unit and dehumidifier because they take up tent space and will hit my wallet a bit hard.)

    The RH ranges from 45 – 60 which is fine after good roots have formed. I just listened to one of your podcasts and you said that the RH should come down at the end of flower. I do NOT want to deal with bud rot after I have put so much love into these girls. If RH stays at 45-60 all the way through flower, will bud rot be an issue? ( I am sure genetics plays a role in this)

    I find it strange that the plants outdoors last year just dealt with whatever mother nature decided to throw at them and yet for an indoor grow it seems to be a more precise effort. Any insight would be fantastic. Thanks Gents!

    First 2 picts from this years grow – the last from last year outdoors.

    I haven’t been able to get my rh down past 55 where I am, but I haven’t noticed anything bad with my buds so. But I’ve wanted to get a dehumidifier for the next run they can be a little pricey but worth it in the long term.
