Thank you sarah :) im quite proud to say its my first grow lol!
well before the snow arrived with my fan, i clocked temps at 35 degrees!! ahhhh!
So i turned my radiator constantly off, re routed the ducting as duggested by BM to the window and ofcourse my osci fan arrived so im getting average readings now of around 29/30 degrees, still a tad warm i know, but i was pleased with the drop :)

he may have a similar size growroom, but all growrooms are different, and work in different ways. just one minor factor would be where in your house the tent is situated, just this small detail will have great differences in environments.
 
my growroom is 0.8m x 2.2m x 2.3m, with a 400w hps, and my 4 inch extractor works fine, summer and winter. i only use the fan on the outlet, the inlet draws air in under a vacuum caused by the extractor outlet. also, the inlet draws air directly from outside, so very cool at the moment.

I know the problem of to big files in the forum so I would recommend you use a free programm called the gimp...its an opensource programm that even can beat photoshop or such anything and its so easy just open a pic with that and when saving as jpg you can reduce the filesize in percent and when first making contrast a bit up  with your great cam even a resized pic will be great.... this programm is available for nearly every platform as windows 2000,win xp and vista,macintosh and linux...just windows 7 works not at the moment

Yo!

haven't updated in a while so here it goes!
My plant is now on dat 26 of its flowering period :D , no major problems so far, just a minor glitch with watering!
i wasn't watering her (yes, officially HER!) thoroughly enough so the bottom started drooping, but with some fantastic advice from threads in these forums , i fixed this problem :D
My baby is now huge! and i think ive done a great job for myself considering its my first ever grow!
I've been feeding 2ml Grow, 2ml Bloom, 2ml Topmax and 2ml Alg-a-mic through the flowering so far, and am going to up the doses soon enough along with a dose of epsom salts.
The smell now is really strong, i need to invest in a better carbon filter haha, amongst the well known weed smell, it smells quite fruity and i can not wait to smoke this baby!!

Heres how shes looking!!






hope ya like!
Tommy

(so sorry for the watermarked pics again, sensi does not like my 12.1mp files!!!!!!!)

Good plants so far, though it looks like there's stippling or discolouration of the leaves. I can't tell if this is due to the leaves themselves or if it's just caused by the angle from which the pic was taken.

I know the issue of image resizing has frustrated some forum members who don't use image manipulation software (ACDSee is my favourite).

For the moment a solution is offered by this website:
http://www.picresize.com/

You can upload images to this website and reduce their size by 25, 50 or 75%

We might be able to implement a solution in the forum itself, in the future, but for the moment this is a very easy way to resize images for posting on the forum or in the gallery.

Thanks ganja, all the leaves look pretty healthy, but the pic was taken inside my tent along with camera flash so it can give that impression, only the 2 sets of lower 3 bladed leaves are unhealthy, very pale green.
 
Thanks for the picture info, i hate posting them up with the watermark so ill try the site you suggested next time!

i hope im not to late tommy, but whatever you do, DO NOT feed her epsom salts, this is used for supplying your plants with magnesium, and so is the alg-a-mic, but the alg-a-mic  is much much better as it has other micro nutes in it too.
 the epsom salts should only be fed on its own, if used at the same time as other nutes, it will cause no end of problems.

Just thought I'd quote Bart to amplify the message... don't use epsom salts as a routine feed. As Barty mentioned alg-a-mic will supply plenty of trace elements, save epsom salts for rectifying Mg deficiency if it occurs.

The best way to use epsom salts is to add it to your bath water after a hard day's gardening and soak in it... it's really good for easing sore muscles and joints %3chumbs%20Up
