Hi guys, a few questions before I pull the credit card out...

im planning on putting a tent in the garage on the side of my house, it’s not a well sealed garage so it pretty cold in there this time of year, I stuck a thermometer out there just to see and and seems to be only a few degrees above outside temps.

real question is which type of light to go for, was thinking HPS as the heat should help keep the tent warm enough, maybe it wouldn’t be enough at these low temps I’m not sure. 

 

other option I guess would be LED and put a heater in also, maybe I’d need a heater with a hps this time of year also?

if the heater was needed with both I’d go led just for the power side of things

 

im thinking I’ll probably have to get a tent, set it up out there and see what temps are like with no lights and might be easier work out which light suits better then.

looking at the 1x1x1.8 marshydro

Any help be great thanks

You could also look at insulating the floor and walls with Celotex/Kingspan PIR boards too..especially the floor

@zn was planning on keeping the tent off the floor, do you mean insulating the tent itself or the whole garage? Whole garage isn’t really an option, it’s large enough and without sealing it up properly I’d say you’ll still loose a lot of heat

Tent itself is good enough, the PIR boards can support the weight of the tent etc. so its perfect for the job...bit of gaffer tape to stick it together, even hinged panel for the door, lol

Thicker the better with 100mm being a good option...can get expensive to get the boards, but you will get this back with savings in heating in no time plus you get 10x better weed growing your own 😉

How low can temps get during the night and during the night? My guess is, you'll need a heater anyway if you grow during winter, which can cost you a fortune running, so LED would be the choice, so you can save money on that part.

I have had a couple of runs at the beginning of my growin career (growing career hahahaha I am a big man now mommy! XD) where the temps went below 15C and started to see all kinds of weird shits reactions on my ladies. I've had also higher temps and in my experience they can deal much better with higher temps than lower temps.

I would try to make sure that I keep the temps during the dark cycle at least above 15C-16C, ideally above 18C.
