Hello!/Help?

, I'm a bit confused about to what to do regarding my set up, I've got a room to grow in and a small tent with a extractor fan and a basic mars hydro light (with banging stickers) (1.2mx1.2m) that's currently in that room. ....(the room is off white and I have an old donated tent that's too big for my gaff that I was planning on covering my actual tent with (reflective side out) so the black doesn't absorb the light) and I'm gonna stick as many standard bright LED light bulbs in as my budget allows and hang them all individually )

Im popping enough seeds to do some inside my tent  and some outside my tent, I think I'll end up with about 10 plants...(smell isn't the biggest issue for the foreseeable future, which is a blessing I feel obligated to take advantage of)

I was thinking about putting four of the better strains inside the tent and keeping everything else outside and running the air from the tent to the outside of the room (using a garden hose on the end of my ducting to send the air discreetly through some grove in the bottom of my door) and opening the door/window occasionally to get fresh C02 in for the plants outside the tent.

 

Firstly ....are there any obvious flaws in this plan??

Second ....am I causing myself any pointless problems by having a tent in the same room as plants ??

Third?? .... Should I even bother with extraction from the tent or just open a hatch and let normal fans push the air around the entire room and stay on top on cycling the air on and out of the whole room by periodically opening the doors and windows to swap the air? 

If you read all that THANK YOU SO MUCH 💚💚🍃💚🍃🧟

This is a picture of some weed my friend just harvested....try and guess the strain for fun while you help me out 😇😇

The lan is a bit confusing mate lol, but ill answer how i can....

Im not sure what you mean by turn the tent inside out, just dont use it, and paint the walls bright white, that will do a great job on its own

I would just not use the tent and have them all in the room. But you will need extraction, old air needs to be pumped out, and new air needs to come in, itll keep humidity at the right levels you see. Does this help? If not just ask more questions mate Smile We will get it sorted Smile

Be aware 10 plants will smell a lot,more than you’d expect so make sure your venting it well & away from neighbours smelling it.

good luck.

Is temperature of concern at all? If it is, I suggest finding a way to make the tent work to flower your plants within. Then vent the warm air from the flower room out into your larger room for additional warmth. Run the timer so you are providing heat during your veg dark cycle.

I live in Canada and maintaining my plants over winter can be a challenge. For the most part I do it in the manner mentioned above. Although my inner tent does flower the odd plant it is mainly for sexing my new starts for the upcoming outdoor season. 

Pics attached.

This is a 10 x 10 with a cheap 5 x 5 inside, if that makes sense.

 By the way this is in a stall within a barn that homes sheep straight across the isle. I am able to vent enough heat from the tent to grow lettuce in a flood and drain table that is inside the stall as well.

 

Cheers,

@island-cultivars seriously no offence bud 

however venting it in to a room in your house is madness.

I dont think it is too bad mate, as long as the garden isnt too big, it shouldn't cause many issues. The smell is the biggest problem, and if you live somewhere where its legal, you should be ok. 

Humidity may be a concern, but not when it is freezing cold like it is in canada. It a good way to use the heat before it gets vented outside

Honestly bud it depends we’re you live I guess.

if I vented into a room in my house the house would smell I know I tried it.
only got away with it myself as my neighbour at the time let me know it was drifting into the loft and into there house.

Still I guess it all about were you live 👍 as you say some country’s are legal 

I’d just loathe to see someone get busted no more no less 

I’ll bow out good luck & as said seriously no offence

Thanks alot everyone! I know it was alot to read!!  My heat source is a radiator and I'm growing everything at the same time so I guess I'm going for the full room approach 😬 if I can figure the air flow out.

Im two bowls deep and starting to think I might be miss judging the smell security 🤣 l

 

Does anybody have a suggestion for getting new air into the room?? Could I just open the door or window every now and again? Or would I need a constant steady in flow??

I’ll come out of hiding sorry if I made you paranoid or is that just good weed your smoking 😵‍💫😆

if you do end up needing it,a extraction fan will pull in new air. They can also pull air out. aka one extraction fan for intake & one to push the old air out.

You’ll want a oscillating fan to push the air around it also has the added benefit of strengthening up the stems so they hold the bud weight better.

Hope I haven’t confused you. Good luck with whatever way you go.
