I AM HEAVILY UPDATING THIS FIRST POST TO CURRENT. ILL LEAVE THE ORIGINAL POST BELOW A LINE.

I am currently running 2 setups depicted in the last few posts.
Setup 1.
315w cmh sun system (4k bulb)
Mostly various sized fabric pots from 1 to 5 gallons.
Fox farm soil. Some happy frog some ocean forrest. And coko loko in the mix. And growstones for air
For nutes im using either organic dry amendments by (roots organic) or (down to earth) starting around week 3 or 4. Or megacrop/bud-explosion/calmag.
My water comes from the tap.

Setup 2.
2-300w viparspectrum 300hp
2-autopot easy2grow trays (4 pots) 2.2g
For medium im using the half/half fox farm soil coko loko. And growstones of course.
Ill be using the megacrop bud explosion and calmag. Because we know thats the recipe for success. (Ill be hand watering molasses too)
Water will again be from the tap.

___________________
Ill be using a similar setup as my last grow with a couple changes.

2.5´ X 2.5´ X 5´ tent

Ffof/coco loko 50/50 soil

DOWN TO EARTH Bio-live every 4 weeks topdress
ROOT ORGANICS GROW weekly in water starting at 1 week thru week 8 (top dress once at 2 weeks)
ROOT ORGANICS BLOOM weekly in water starting at 4 weeks (top dress once at 4 and once at 8 weeks)

Sun system aio 315w cmh reflector/ballast with 4000k 98cri bulb.

4" fan/filter and 2 tower oscillators.

Ill be using 2-7gallon growbags(only filled to 4/5gallon

And 3-3gallon growbags (only filled for 2.25gallon)

I moved the growspace from my bedroom closet to a back room that is generally cooler with the ac. Im hoping that a cooler room will help the 4" fan pull enough heat from the tent. The cmh will run hotter than the leds, im just hoping i can keep temps closer to the mid 70s. The room is kept near 68-72. I acknowledge that i may be seeking a new fan/filter before the end of this run and im ok with that.

Im starting the 3 3gallons ahead of the other 2 as the bigger pots have what im hoping to be seedstock in them from the last run.
I started og kush, purple haze, and ak47 last night.

As its setup, my temps are in the low-mid 80s. The tent is alone in a 12×12 room thats fed by the main house ac. The tent is right next to the vent. Any ideas how to get that temp down further? The room is roughly 68-71°f
Is the light just too much for the tent (2.5×2.5×5)?
