    should I keep my fan on at night?

    I am growing lowland neps, I also have a small pc fan running during the day.
    should i be running it at night?

    I have been doing this for months but looking to make air flow better for more growth at night.

    I have found that most of my growth is at night.

    I turn my fan off at night in my HL setup....I only keep it on during the day to prevent constant condensation on my plants and to prevent temperature layers in the chamber.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    well it depends on the temp. if it is above 80 at night yes two lights is good. if you have your plants in a terrarium then yes no matter the temp. one or two fans are good.
