i set up my vivosun 4x4 tent. there are 2 xs1500 (150w ea) and an xs2000 (240w). i got a kit with a 6 Inch 390 CFM Inline Fan with Speed Controller 6 Inch Carbon Filter (hope i did it right, the arrow on the fan is pointing out of the tent, the other end to the filter)

i need to move the humidifier and heater and little fan and move the plants. i have had the tent running with lights and fan and it is staying at 72 degrees the humidity is high, like 80%, dont know why, just an empty tent and a fan and lights. and it is 43% outside of the tent... maybe that gauge is broken, i will try another.

so, should i move the plants right before their night time? or does that matter, they are auto and not in flower yet. do i need anything else?

do i need to worry about the part of the tent the lights overlap? to cover most of the tent in the right light, the cone of light overlaps at about 2 ft off the ground, will that be a bad thing for a plant?

i have both my tents in rooms that it’s the only reason to go in, reason as i don’t think i’ve ever grown with the tent completely closed, so night time as to be pitch black.
this way for me i can keep my humidity and temps within 5 “point” range 24/7..

Looks good. The light overlap wont hurt it as long as they are not too close to the plants, but thats any light. Maybe throw a lil fan in there. Good luck.

ok, this is a spare junk room. i havent gone in it in a long time, forgot how messy it is! should i get a thick blind or curtain for the window and then the room will be black.

ive got two small fans, one a hurricane i can clip on, and one that i had on my desk.

i used one outlet for the lights, and a different one on a different circuit for the other.

how much do i run that fan/filter? all the time, or just its daytime? so some each hour? no idea

ya id black out the window, clean up before setting up!
well you can run the filter, though when growing babies/clones small plants it’s not really needed as it’s for the smell but it helps in air movement. so..

lol, yeah, not so much dirty just all those things you dont need and stick somewhere... when i am able, i will take stuff to the shed, but that can wait, i shoved it out of the way!

i still have the problem of the bag seed, they are still in the other room, no way to totally control light in there. would it hurt them to spend nights in the spare room? not in the tent, just in the dark room. then move them back for the daytime hours

as long as temp and humidity are not far off.
what do you mean by controlling the light?
how big are the plants?

5 weeks old tomorrow. there are 3 of them.

i mean the other space is in my room, in a garden tub but no door so any light would disturb their sleep if i try to move them to flower. the other option is to hold them in veg, someone told me a few things i can do to keep them from getting out of control. but these autos (3 weeks old, could take a couple months or so to finish.)

the others are photos, 3 of them at 5 weeks old (green pots), 1 at 3 weeks old (black pot) in 1 gal cloth pots. those are the ones i am at a loss about what to do with them.

if i put those 4 in the tent, they take up room, and they will just keep vegging and get bigger and bigger... or i think that is what happens. id like to flower them, but that needs 12 on (which i can do) and 12 off (which i cant really control). if my phone rings, or alarm goes off they would see that light. so i can veg them in my room, but id sort of like to sleep in a less humid and less hot place, lol. i can put them in the tent, i am just not sure about space and what it does to the others not to have that room. i just am uneducated at this point. i was advised here to get rid of them to avoid problems like these... i just didnt do it. i meant to, but then i sort of got attached... ugh

@Wh1teScorp1on can you jot down some more detail on the filter. i have Quixote, my german shepherd dog, and his fur gets everywhere. i sort of see what you did, but not really...

If the room is dirty or if you have pets I’d suggest running an intake filter. I made this up works good without flow restriction
Not to be off topic,
But when I see this it always freaks me out.
Fire danger at it’s finest!
Better check that brother:)
There’s danger brewing there.
Make sure that breaker can handle the load you got there.

yes, i have 3 things plugged in, but am moving the fan to its own circuit, the 2 lights will be on that circuit, and i have one more circuit i will be using for the other things (small fan, dehumidifier and such)
