First Grow!

Hello guys,


This is my first grow and my setup is a 1.2x1.2x2.0 cultibox tent a 600w hps with cooltube, 125mm intake fan and 150mm exhaust fan. I am planning to grow 7 plants in there. So my first problem is that after germinating my seeds, i placed them in their pots and then in the tent. I have low temperatures, like 14 C, so in order to get it to atleast 25 i opened the lamp and the whole air system. My point is how big of a problem is if a seedling has a 600w light, placed far up and as far as possible? Will they survive or no? Thanks in advance!

... they won't like it! Raise your temps in the room that holds your tent.

Thank you very much! Glad i've found you! So.. when you say "they won't like it", you mean they will die? Sorry if that sounds like a stupid question but honestly i don't know a lot. The thing is that i can't raise the temperature because it's a basement and it's like empty. Do you have any suggestions? Again, thanks you!

Heat your basement, or place a radiant htr in your tent (on a thermostat)! You want your temps between 20-25 degrees C.

Ok, so go get it right. When i am waiting for the seedling to come out and grow for atleast 3 weeks i must have it in the dark till they go to the veg phase?

i put sprouting seedlings under a 1000 watt.
only a little over a foot above them.
they like the light and heat. if your light is
closer. your temps at the seedlings will be warmer.
they will be ok under your 600. but run a fan so no
hot spots under light.
hope this helps Lrus007

you want 18 to 24 hours of light during grow.
when it is time to bud 12 hours on and 12 hours
off for the light.

Thank you so much for your answers my friend! I will try to see what happens, otherwise i will take something that produces enough heat for the tent so i can get started... any other suggestions you would like to give? I'll try to give a screenshot today if possible from my setup.

Hey mate, congratulations on starting. The first grow is always the best, you learn the most. There's a lot of information on the 'tutorial' page of this site (https://www.icmag.com/modules/Tutorials/) some of it is old, but the vast majority of it still applies. Also, don't' worry too much man, you learn something every grow, that is the true goal.
