Nice setup, should be an interesting journey! I'll sub in
What is the tent like for environment? Day/Night temp and RH?
welcome @4d-Rock temps been on the cooler side.
- 1st indoor temp has it @ 64-75f and 43/56rh
- 2nd indoor temp @ 68-78f and 44/65rh

thinking about getting the night temps up
- cover with blanket?
- close 2 of 3 passive intakes?
- add filter pad to exhaust ducting to slow down air flow?

quick update:

its suggested on here by @BigSm0 to keep the autocob around 30"-36" veg and 24"-30" flower. I just recently moved the plants closer to lights on DAY 4 @ 27" away from the lights.
- havent seen any taco issue.
- they are reaching for the lights.
- no color change in the leaves

will keep my eyes on them for possible heat/stress issues.

am I moving my lights too much for a seedling? should I move it back up and wait for new growth before adjusting? let me know what you guys think!

I also decided to put on the reflectors after reading a couple results by @AutoWonders. basically came down to bigger/faster growth during veg

with 20% light increase (in a 2x2) + faster/bigger plant in veg.. what can go wrong?!
