hey guys if temps get between 80 to 85 f for 1 or 2 hours is that bad for the plant ? i have noticed the last few days about an hour before lights off my temps rise to 83f with led lights before the rise the temp is 77to78 f

I hit 88F everyday it’s not that hot. Of course I’m running enriched. Secret is to get your humidity to match your temp for the ideal vpd

Try switching the times for lights out during the day and light on at night when temps are cooler.

It’s hot here today, I have my ac cranking at 60f it’s lowest setting and it’s still 76f ambient temp but inside my tent it says 87f which sounds horrifying but my leaf/bud temp is 79 and my water temps( I’m in hydro) are 77f and the plants look healthy and happy! I also have tons of air movement which is key.

You are fine at 85, I would not push it past 85. If you can try to keep them around 83 degrees that is the sweet spot. Take a look at You Tube and look up Black Dog LED's. They were where I found information about running the temperatures higher with LED's. Their video does a great job of explaining the differences between LED and HPS for temperatures. Good Luck with your grow!

Increase the humidity my plants love vegging 75% 83-84f. There's a chart here

I'm also going through water in my 3 gal pots in 2 days but my plants are growing fast and love the high humidity.

too low with LED's. That is the sweet spot for HPS, because of the variations in spectrum and IR you need to raise ambient temperature to get the leaf temperature to the correct numbers. Best to have a temperature gun to get true leaf temperatures.

Do you have any idea why your temperatures are going up the last hour of lights on? That would be the only concern I would have. I run a sealed rooms so the control I have over temperature and humidity may provide me with more control over swings. I would start out a little below that because there is going to be fluctuation. Probably go 81 and see how well your system holds to the number..
