I just finished my second box.. and of course, I was in a zone building it, I didn't take pictures.
Anyways, where I work I have access to many computer supplies. Especially old CPU chasis that were going to be tossed away. I managed to also get a few 7 plug surge protectors and a bunch of fans from the same CPU's that were being tossed and a bunch of 12v adapters.
This probably saved me about $100.
I then went and bought the following:
Reflectix Reflective Insulation - $10
Super Glue - $5
Magnets - $10
3 x 23w 6500k Bulbs - $10
3 x 23w 2700k bulbs - $10
Tape (electric, duct, and double-sided) $10
So in all I spent about $50 for materials on 2 grow boxes. I'm planning on making my smaller, original grow box that is 18" high, my vegging box. And my 20" newly made box will be my flowering box.
Let me know if you guys need more info.
I can be happy to annouce the baby girl (hopefully) is doing great. She's getting bigger by the day. I topped off her pot with a little bit of the FF Ocean Forest. I'm hoping the inch of FFOF I put in her pot will get her growing even bigger.
I had problems with temperature. When it was in my room, the temps reached 90-100 degrees!!! I got worried, so I transfered her to my attic, where last I checked about an hour ago, she was at a cool 70 degrees.
I've taken daily pictures, and will post them all up in a few days. Basically 7 days after she sprouted.
Also, stupid question.. But how much should I be watering her? I only watered her when I noticed the top inch of the soil was dry. But how much do I put in there?
