Grow Room Winter Health Check List

With winter on its way today we are here to provide a growing tent winter health check list, to ensure that as many hydroponic growers as possible are able to get the most out of their grow tents this winter! If you want to grow plants as healthily as possible this winter, this checklist is for you, and we definitely advise that you take the time to read it… We are certain that it will be able to help you greatly.

  1. Monitor day and night temperatures

Use a temperature and humidity meter to monitor day and night temperatures inside your grow tent, taking temperatures in the safe at the base level of your plants and inside the ducting. Temperatures should be about 24C-28C during day with the lights on and between 2C and 5C at nighttime with the lights off.

  1. Check running lights are working

During winter it can be a good idea to run grow lights during night as this is when the plants inside your grow tent could face becoming too cold and in turn their growth being halted/damaged.

  1. Get a heater

You need to ensure that there is a quality heater inside your grow tent, but the great news is that this doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. For smaller grow tents tubular heaters work amazingly, however if you are even in doubt as to which heat you should choose you should discuss your needs and requirements with your hydroponics equipment supplier.

  1. Drawing fresh air

Outside air is usually too cold for plants being grown in grow tents during winter therefore you may want to consider moving your intake fan and rhino filters so that you can draw in fresh air from inside your house.

  1. Seal off your grow room

Ensure that you grow tent is completely draught proof, filling in any holes, sealing up any gaps and checking that no air is seeping in around your grow room’s windows and doors.

  1. Take your plants off the floor

A cold floor can be really detrimental to the growth of plants therefore if possible you should raise your plants pots off the ground, or at the very least ensure that there is a barrier in-between your plants pots and the floor.
