Weed plants are happiest when they’re in a temperature range of 20°F variance throughout day and night. When lights are off, temps should be no lower than 64°F during veg and 54°F during flower. When they’re on, temps shouldn’t be much higher than 84°F during either phase.

Short plants can only yield so much even if they’re completely covered in bud
$82) – I actually have two of these. The TopoLite tents are not particularly high quality, but they have everything you need. It’s difficult to find a good tent in this particular size, but that extra foot of height is useful enough that I’m willing to deal with second-rate zippers.
