    Default Paint Outgassing ??

    Hey all

    I have been battling with this problem for about two months now and its driving me crazy !

    I recently built myself a new growroom out of plywood in the basement of my house with the walls painted white and floor secure on the floor. I have a 4" fan sucking air out and a 4" hole cut for air to flow in which i have attached a lenght of ducting leading outside for fresh air. Theres a paving slab in there rised a couple inches off the ground for my ballast to go on and fo my fan to clip onto

    Problem is when ever i put a new plant in there it starts looking like this !


    And before you say sulphur deficiency, ive tried it Read here ---> http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...m-top-of-plant

    Its definatley outgassing of some sort as i have done LOADS of research and i foud lots of pix of plants looking the same from people using cheap growtents.

    The only thing i can think of is the paint> Has anyone ever heard of painted walls outgassing and ruining crops ?

    PLEASE HELP !!

    Just used some crown matt white out of homebase
    Was just giving water
    p.h is at 5.6 - 5.8 in soil (besides my mate has a grow room with 8 plants in that he's feeding pond water which is at 10.2 !)
    didn't get as far as two weeks let alone 5-6

    yi didn`t buy crown odourless did yi?

    crown odourless was on watchdog the other night because it was far from odourless, the complaints were flooding in that there was an eggie,sewage kinda smell from it.

    just a suggestion, dont know what else it could be, lol

    hello m8,
    yes that would be a good idea,
    to be honest m8 we couldent sort this problem out so we pulled down the g/r and wacked a tent a bit smaller and wacked that inside the old g/r and this sorted it,
    try taking all your plants out clean the g/r with disinfectant PROPERLY then air it out for atleast 48hrs then get up ther with with a industrial hoover and suck all that shit up, m8 i know this is a proper arse holl but we will sort TRUST me,. T/C
