Hi Guys and Gals.... So I left the light on in the tent to test what sort of temps it got to for when I start Vegging (Be prepared and all that ). That was when I saw little light leaks all around the zip section. The zip works fine- it's just like when material has stretched a bit around the stitching, leaving tiny holes.
Before I continue with the grow- does the fact that the light leaks- also mean the smell will leak- even with a good extractor and filter?
(I'd be buying the one Macky recommended- Black Orchid kit)
Thanks folks

Hey Ali,

you can stick a bit of tape over the holes if your worried also if the room or area you are keeping the tent is in darkness then I wouldn't worry to much about the tiny pin holes, extraction will be sucking air out and also pullin air in so I wouldn't be worry the lil holes letting smell escape

or ali do you have an old bedsheet or duvet cover you could just put over the top on their dark period if thats a big concern of yours 

Give a stoner some bud he will smoke for a day, but show a stoner how to grow and he will smoke forever. 🤣💚

@joshuaarr420 Another good suggestion...and free ! (My fave type lol) Thanks Josh, yes, I do have some bits like that I could use -and will do .Even for England, this weather sucks,man! It should be hot and humid enough for the flying ants to appear in swarms by now, checked the tent before and it was down to 18 degrees...

@joshuaarr420 Man, I hate them too....I fell into a huge pile of them when I was little , had a phobia ever since....I don't go out when they appear...it's only a few days a year thankfully! 
I knew about the boiling water for ants but not flying ants- I'll remember that!
