    #2
    Just tepid or room temp. Not hot, not cold.

    Space: 30x48x62 DIY cabinet lined w/space blankets

    Soil Supplements: Worm Castings, Guano, Crab Shell, Oyster Shell, Neem and Karanja Meal, Volcanic Basalt Dust (for minerals), Recharge root micros, My filtered tap water runs over 7.5 pH but the soil will do my pH correction

          I read someone's post post with some good and interesting information. Got me interested in PPM.
          He seemed to have a fair number of posts. One thing he said he did was give cold water. Something about shocking the roots to absorb more nutrients? Not as a general thing? I did a quick search on GWE(Prime) and can't find what I'm looking for.
          But, yeah. Unless proven otherwise, room temperature.

            I'd venture to guess you have never grown indoors before. If this is all new to you, believe me when I say the water temp is your least concern!

            I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest you do some more reading on the main site before attempting a grow. Otherwise i think you are going to have some real issues when the plants don't produce...

            But...in answer to your question, not hot water and not freezing cold...however it normally comes out of the cold tap is fine.
            I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

              Thx so much for the answers, the first answer I got was just let it be room temp. I normally keep my water around 60% ive had no issues but I was wondering if there was an ideal temp.

                Hi again, I suggested room temp as that is what it will be if you let it sit long enough for the chlorine to boil off

              I always give my plants warm water
