The temperatures are as follows:
SO far, I have been noticing that in the tank the probe was at the pot level and temps were like 5F lower or normalized at 85F. I thought that was just the buffer effect of water and the fan. But considering the air temp in the tank is a lot higher and the gradient just above the plants is soo much hotter, I wouldn't be surprised if it hit over 95F in the tank on the hottest days.
Current temps (autmn is coming) Readings from today
In tank, temps appear to be: Max: 78F and min: 59F
Unfortunately, as i mentioned, The probe was incorrectly placed durin the summer season. So perhaps, I am waaay off with the temp readings.
And you are right, ever since I removed one fan from the inside, I had to water only once in the week. There is still one fan at the pot level. I will raise it up and put it at plant level. The only concern is that Wouldn't that dry out the plants? Where exactly do u think is a good position. And bear in mind, I cannot control fan speed. (Atleast, without any other electronic devices)
There is no opening for the tank anywhere apart from the top and the side door. It is otherwise sealed at the bottom. So that means, the only air circulating is from the top where the lights make it hot.
But you guys say fresh air is not needed? Wouldn't a lower CO2 concentration in the air make it unfavourable for plant growth? But yes, I understand that without correct conditions and excess heat, that would be an even bigger issue.
So do u think I should turn off all the fans tomorrow and take readings?
