I’m sure most people on here like me started off with one tent.

But as I run one big bed in my 4x4 I found it hard to grow any regular seeds without adding a veg tent and I don’t like constantly disturbing the soil and wasting the space really as I SCROG.

So I added a small 90x60 tent that I keep on it’s side to keep clones and veg in. 

But I just did my very first pheno hunt and managed to squeeze a small 75x75 budbox into the loft. So the idea was that this would allow me to keep one pheno going while I can hunt some of my other packs in the main tent.

At the moment I’m only using the 75x75 and the 4x4 and have nothing in the small veg tent. But now I’m at the stage where I’m going to have to take clones so I need it to be up and running again the only issue is I had to use the 4” extractor from my small veg tent for my 75x75 tent.

 

I was wondering is there a way to do a minimal veg setup in this small tent without buying more gear to set it up?

 

I have been thinking there’s probably two potential money saving options. I could either pump the extractor output from my small tent into the little veg tent (the thinking behind this being it would also warm the tent up) so the air would just come out of the passive intakes on the sides of the tent.

Or I could remove the active intake from my main 4x4 and make that a passive intake?

I also would probably need to get another inkbird for temps at some point it I’ll figure that out later.

There is one other thing that might make the passive intake on the 4x4 a better idea. I will be flipping soon and then about two weeks after will also be flipping the 75x75 tent so as I only have one dehumidifier (and it wouldn’t fit in the 75x75) I could just let the dehumidifier sit in the loft space keeping humidity under control.

 

Does anyone have any pointers on this kind of setup? Or have any idea if it’s ok to just run a dehumidifier in a loft space as in the winter humidity will obviously get reasonably high in the Uk?

I veg with just a out fan only nothing else. i have zero issues with my plants expect that they get too big for the tent as I always have too many.  just removing the hot air is all it does.

I run a dehumidifier all summer here, and it adds a lot of heat. You could possibly use this to your advantage during the winter in the UK. I use a large capacity dehuey in the basement and a smaller unit in the grow room. For me it's harder to lower the humidity then it is to raise it, if the outside humidity is already high. Good luck man, you'll figure it out.

@woodi2 thanks man I think I’ll give that a go then. I also thought I might be able to keep the dehumidifier waste water to use in my humidifier in the small veg tent as it’ll be cleaner than my tap water?

@yoshi, that's a damn good question and my answer is I don't know. It reads like 0 PPM and EC, as good as my RO water. I tested it cause people have wanted to use it for their plants which is discouraged by some growers and not by others. I choose not to but never considered using it for the humidifier, I normally don't have both running at the same time, but multiple grows, sure. Give it a go and if you see white dust then stop, other than that I don't no how else it could hurt.
