Flower room up and running.
Unless running a chiller I wouldnt put the airpump inside the tent. Not saying you cant, but depending on the type of system your running, its gonna be hard to keep water temps down.Flower room up and running.
Yea that would be to much work to tear down and paint. Perhaps a blanket for now, I like to use bath towels, pretty all 3 of my current systems have a towl over the res. My 4 plant with an external res is painted black too. My totes are not painted, but they are thicker plastic than most totes. Plus my venturi stops microbial growth from sticking to the sidewalls or anything at that. I do enjoy high flow rates.I would be worried about light leaking through those totes. That's a very light gray. wouldn't hurt to spray paint the lids black if you aren't using some kind of light cover, if not the sides of the totes as well. some people paint black, then white on top to reflect heat. as the black base will be to block light.
@Cashmeh good advice on testing water temps. I'm ecstatic that my small ass chiller is holding the temps. To ease the load on the chiller, i'm going to insulate my dwc buckets before next grow with some double bubble.
Such a contradicting statement . . .MBI would ditch the humidifier as they are really only needed for clones without roots and the ability to pull water from the soil. In my experience the lower the humidity the better, even during veg.
I also would never spray the plants with anything. From my perspective its prolly residue from tap water ran through the humidifier, and then its the spray is compounding the issue by adding more molecules to the leafs.
I would get some RO or Distilled water, and spray them down to wash everything off. Whats your temps and humidity level?
