Do you ever worry that your AC will break down while you are away, and you will come home to a lost cause in your grow room? If you are like most growers, this concern has crossed your mind more than once. Temperature is incredibly important to the health and vitality of your plants and ultimately your yield. Yes, there are many other elements that need to be considered, but for now, let’s look at temperature’s influence on the health of your grow.
What is the ideal temperature for my grow?
Although some plants may vary, the typical range that most flowering plants thrive in is between 72 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants grown in a natural outdoor environment, are more resilient to hot and cold temperatures due to the high rate of air circulation. To mimic the outdoors in a closed system, make sure you replace the air within the room up to five times per minute. With constant circulating air, you will also need fans, air conditioners and/or heaters to regulate temperatures within your grow room.
