    I use a big squirrel fan...its an old cannibalized swamp cooler...built a stand for it...when frost is a threat, I plug it in and goto bed...moving air discourages frost from forming....helps that I live 200ft from a large lake....hth

    Cannabis is very frost resistant. If it gets to 28 degrees HARVEST. It depends also what the weather that day will be sunny cloudy wet ect ect and the days following. Is she in pots? You can bring her in for a day or two and put her under t-5s until the weather gets nice again. Unless you live in Cali or the deep south i would harvest. But by the looks of her shes got a few weeks.

    I grow in a greenhouse, so I was able to add a space heater, which works perfectly!

    I noticed my plants really start to slow down in terms of bud growth, when it gets really cold. The leaves also tend to turn purple in my experience.

    Here's a video of my setup with a heater:

    I'm doing a Fall/Winter seed test down here in NW Florida. I've had a few frosts, and they are hanging in there so far. This is the 5th week of flower, so they don't have far to go. I will be putting out more plants for a Spring crop early in the new year.
