    Temps are I or I-W. It's been at the upper 70s during the day. Lower 70s at night and an occasional upper 60.
    I see you grow under lights - what's your set-up - how do you lower the temp at night?

    I had four T5HO 6400K. I just recently replaced the bulbs and this time am trying two 6400K and two 3000k. Once the lights are off at night the temperature goes down on it's own (easier being winter). I don't know how long it takes to drop to the lowest temp. Also I can close the register a little more to help bring temps down. I do have a small fan that runs off an on through the night. I don't know how much of a difference I will get when summer comes. The room will be harder to keep cooler then.
    I also have the set up enclosed with plastic to help keep humidity higher.
