GSCE Auto - Day 56, too hot?

Hey everyone, I’m worried my GSCE auto is too hot(temp wise). I’m noticing the leaf tips are browning on some of the fan leaves. As well, noticing some purple forming on the bud leaves. I recently added a heater to get the temp up for the BD i’m growing in the back and I’m thinking it’s having adverse effects on the GSCE. I’m thining it only has a couple of weeks before it’s time to harvest so hoping this will make it to the finish line!

Having trouble understanding why you added a heater now you temperatures are too hot

Heat was dropping to mid 70s so put the heater to get back to mid 80s-90. I’ve got a blue dream photo in the same tent and seems like the low temps were slowing down growth. When I added the heater the blue dream shot up.

You think I should remove the heater until GSCE is done?

Here is a temperature chart my tent doesn’t get over 72 degrees


I’d remove the heater. Mid 70’s is fine. If you’re in northern hemisphere you shouldn’t need one for a few months.


Your runoff pH is a little low as well. What and how often are you feeding?

Greatly Appreciate this! I had read the range should be between 75-90 so this helps specify.

Everything I’ve read which is a ton of different places say 70-85max with optimal between 75-80. Besides seedling stage which I ran hotter my girls have been average 75-80 except during 4hrs of lights out I get it down to 67 or so. This is a blue dream Auto at 60 days today. I would definitely keep it cooler but I’m a newb lol


Heater is now off.

Feeding Foxfarm TigerBloom with a smidge of the stage 3 flowertime fertilizer every 2-3 days.

Just retested the feed it’s 1340ppm/6.2 pH.
I can retest the runoff in a few, the stats in the original post were from a runoff from 2 days ago.


@GrowingIs4Everyone i think you can change your name it’s looking great to me(also a newb lol).

Definitely going to lower the temps
