This is my 80*80*180 cm tent and this time of the year its around 27c outside. Inside the tent was 32-34. I found a temporary solution cause im nearly 3 weeks away from the harvest. I covered the tents door with some fly net . Its still around 29 inside the cabinet but its better than 34. Do you think fly net is enough to block pests . I know spider mites are realy tiny but theres nothing else i can do. Can this take me to the harvest without any pests infestation

Mites wont get through a mesh smallercthan themselves.

Your tent heats up quick, is extraction low or thermometer in the light?

I have Soler&Palau TD350/125 for extraction runs in high speed with 600 hps cooltube and carbon filter. I didnt install an intake fan because my tent is small it was fine in the vegetative stage with mh light ,but i forgot about the season. I live in Turkey its hot in here in summer.

I used epsom salt for sulphure def.
No cal mag (i think i needed some but wasted a lot of money for useless stuff and i had no budget)

Its 72th day total since the seeds pop up. Now im out of cannaboost and cannazym . Do you think this affect my yield because i cant buy new ones at the moment. Or is it okay to do with with i have in the hand.

Pic shows thermometer in direct light.
Should be above light line or shaded from light.

After that if its still so hot then the fact you having the door open to help means your not pulling enough air through,.
Are you lights on at night?

Where does the hot go after extraction?

Canna boost is a waste of money. Just use the base nutes next time and you wont be able to tell the difference

I only pull air with exhaust fan no intake fan.

Yeah you shouldn't need intake for a small tent, the passive vents and lower duct socks should be fine.
But the extraction has to go outside.
Some fans don't like resistance, but a quality one will handle it fine, might be the fans a bit weak on either cfm or static pressure.

But first....
Reset your thermometer and take readings out of direct light, there's a good reason weather stations protect their thermometers from direct light.
Might not be as bad as it looks right now.

Corey is right your thermometers in the wrong place and heating up from the light. Suspect it is not 34c in your tent and that shows as plants grew not that bad.

Once you get more accurate temp readings you will see more clearly, its prob a lot of things just need to keep at it.

Air extraction goes out of the window. I have solar palau silent td350 exhaust fan runs in high speed. I thought it was a good one.

from the first picture on your post I can see the issue
your 6" exhaust is dropped down right next to the 4" intake. If I were you I would keep the exhaust pipe high up , cut some off, throw away the 4" and use the peice you cut off as the intake.

Not only will this solve the issue of your heat dumping straight back into the intake, but the fan will not have to work as hard and you will see the tent go to the temperature of the room it is in

this is what I'm looking at.
that 6" pipe is exhausting correct? That heat would just be pulled right back in before it could mix with the room air
