Growing Ambient Temperatures

Post by sirhchrhis808 » Sun Nov 26, 2017 1:02 pm

Another intense read about ambient temperature and what Black Dog LED calls Leaf Surface Temperature (another kind of LST)

https://www.blackdogled.com/lst/

Basically, anyone who grows under an LED may need to increase their ambient temperature to “optimize plants metabolism” good thing Hawaii’s temp are within that range. The only thing crappy is that our RH has a wide range, it could be 60-70, then in the next few hours, when changing winds, we get 70-80. I was told that our plants do best in cold temps while in flower, this may challenge that. I was going to invest in a portable air conditioner/dehumidifier but seems like I may only need a dehumidifier.

Anyway, enjoy the read. Lots to be taken by it.

Hey there sirhchrhis808...
Good information. Thanks for sharing. You're wide-ranging high humidity is not your friend so a dehumidifier sounds good. I run about 78-80° ambient temp to keep my soil in a good temp zone. Good having you in the forum!
All the best...

So the temp in your room should be round 80 degrees Fahrenheit for bloom? The reason I'm asking is I'm set up in my building out side and its been getting pretty cold at nite. I run my heater all the time I try to keep it in the mid 70 ish range sometimes 80 so is that good for bloom.

Hey there Nogood4480...
I personally maintain a higher ambient temperature 80°-84° because I want to keep my soil and root base from getting too cold. Heres some info I found helpful, ""
"Low temperatures: As the surrounding temperature decreases, plant metabolism slows down. This will mean that all the chemical reactions that take place inside the plant will take a longer time to be completed." So my 80°+ ambient temp gives me warmer soil base and thus a more steady metabolism for constant growth. It's a goog rule of thumb to not let your plants ger any cooler than 10 degrees lower than your daytime temperature.
All the best...

Thanks Longbow I have noticed that when the temp gets in the low to mid 80s they start looking happy again my space isn't completely sealed off I still get a lil draft and its a task to keep em warm but I'm managing its just killing my power bill and I'm out if work rite now. But add long as my girls are happy I'm happy. I also keep a heating pad under them to keep roots happy so far do good. Thanks homie I'm going to try to load some pics
