    I'll sort it out soon (I promise), but just FYI, this grow is 100% legal. I am in California, with a medical card & 99 plant exception - both acquired from 420recs.com (thanks Dr. Francis G. Ambrosio!) so light leak probably isn't as big of a deal for me as it would be for other growers.

    Like I said, I'll sort it out though...thanks again.

    Hello brother and welcome to the forum ... noce set up and it sounds like yoi have done your research and got all that you require ... good for you bro ... and on the legal growin part, damn it im jealous hehe alright i had to put it out there lol
    As far as the light leak goes, and althought discretion isnt an issue for you, yoir worries wouldnt be about light leaking OUT as much as it is leaking IN.!!!! Remember, that once the girls are in flowering, any light leaks may disrupt their dark cycle, leading to stress and hermaphrodite plants and trust me you dont want your plants to hermie (busted timer screwed up my very last run .. busted timer = messed up dark cycles etc) ... itll mess up with the yield, the physical quality of the buds as well as the potency ..... we dont want that after aboit 4 months of working hard and waiting now do we 😉😉
    Happy growing and good luck brother .... let us know if ya ever need anything or have any concerns or questions 😊

    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on

    I tried to reply yesterday...looks like it didn't post.

    Thank you so much for that, that makes perfect sense - and I never would have thought of that on my own!

    I definitely don't want to stress out my plants, I'll start thinking about the best way to handle the light leak right away.

    It is a gorilla grow tent, the only intake at the moment is the roll-up one on the back wall. My biggest concern with incoming air is eliminating dust/pet hair/ dander - though I am a very clean person and don't allow my dog in the room while the tent is open (pest prevention too).

    Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated!

    Hey guys,

    So I started my grow diary - I decided to place it in the LED Grow Diary section (but I did name the thread "esanacore's First Grow -- OG Kush -- Kind LED so everyone can easily see that it is my first grow), rather than in the Newbie Corner.

    Here it is: http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...ferrerid=79081

    Thanks,

    -Eric

    Finally took care of that light leak...I closed up the flap, installed ducting to act as intake, installed a dust shroom on the end, and have the ducting bent to eliminate all light leak.

    So, here are two pictures of my (passive) intake, that is capped off with a 'dust shroom' that I got on Amazon.

    The first picture will be lit, so that you can see exactly the shape that the ducting is formed into. The dust shroom is claimed to be a zero cfm-loss cap, which eliminates dust, hair, and can help prevent mold/mildews.

    The second picture is set in the exact same place as the first picture, but with the lights off in the room that the tent is set in. You will be able to see the light radiating trough the insulated ducting slightly, which will demonstrate the way the light trap is working.
