Ok this is my first attempt ever to grow pot! So im going to need a lot of help and guidance! I have done a plethora of research trying to determine what route i want to take to grow this stuff and i have decided on hydro. It will be inside a computer case as to maintain maximum stealth. and i will use LED lights because my electricity bill is already just to damn crazy:mad:

My setup is as follows:

1. 2 1/2 feet tall x 2ft wide x 1ft deep computer case gutted out.
2. 2 80mm fans (intake) and 1 120mm fan (outtake)
3. 2 50 watt LED 12x12 panels, the supposed lumen output is said to be at 6000(not to sure on this):smoking:
4. aquarium pump with 2 output and 2 airstones. (the guy at the petshop said that they produce extra fine bubbles.
5. 1 rubbermaid tupperware container covered in aluminum tape.
6. 3 3" netpots, rockwool, and hydroton clay rocks, general hydroponics grow bloom and micro, ph up and down and a ph tester kit.

look at the pics whadda ya think!

I think you can grow some pretty nice lowryders in there and for a first attempt you did an amazing job. That box looks sick.

thanks for the compliment, i am very interested in growing a couple of different strains, lowryder being one of them, however i am taking the advice of one of my fellow GC bro's and just starting off with bagseed till i get the hang of growing. i already germinated a few and am about to put them in the rockwool and fire this bad boy up, so stay posted.

Why are the leds so spaced out, you could fit like 3x the amount of leds in the same place. Also power leds put out more light than those indicator leds. That led panel looks like a failure.

trust me! these aint no indicator LED's. THESE ARE HIGH POWERED LED LIGHTS! they are so brigt that i need to wear sunglasses when i work inside the box cause they blind me. If you had read the setup you would have seen that each panel is 50 watts, what indicator LED's have you seen take that much wattage, the only failure here is your abilty to know the difference between a indicator LED and a high powered one, read up young one, its obvious you need more schooling.:D

This looks like an incredible set up man. Are the hooks on the reservoir for LST? I'm very interested to see how these LED's grow! Cool post man, keep us updated.

I'd like to know where you got those LEDs from, I've been thinking about a similar micro-grow set up

1. what is the wattage of your LED lights?
2. What type of LED lights are they? panels, ufo, bulbs etc.....
3. how far (distance EXACTLY) are your lights from your plants?

knowing these things can help in figuring out your problem!
