This is my first post to share my findings using a new "Stealth Grow 2K8" box.
The Stealth Grow 2K8 consists of:
1x Cabinet with hinged front doors and exhaust hole in ceiling,
also has pre-made holes on back panel to fix light, 2x air intake fans, and power supply.
D- 15.5 inches
1x 12cm, 12v computer exhaust fan
(to fit to cabinet ceiling exhaust hole.)
2x 8cm computer fans
(to fit to rear of cabinet
for air intake.)
1x 250watt Halogen bulb with bayonet fixing and mains adapter
(screws into pre-made hole in back of cabinet.)
2x 60watt Cool White CFL's with bayonet fixing and mains adapter
(screws into a choice of four places around the cabinet.)
1x 4-way POWER-SURGE adapter
(mounts to top left hand side of cabinet.)
1x 9v adapter to power intake and exhaust fans.
I have heard a LOT of bad things about growing with halogen lights such as the intense radiate heat they give off and not providing enough lumens etc...
However, i sat and thought for a while and looked for a while on the internet and had an idea. if i could control the intense heat from the halogen enough to put it into a small enclosed area, add a couple of blue spectrum lights and a couple of varied spectrum lights WITHOUT, burning the building down OR, taking up too much space inside the small area i would have to work with, then i might be on to something.
The plan is to try and keep the plants as short and wide as possible, topping early, regularly, but also keeping them short until flowering, since they can only grow to just over 18 inches high ALTOGETHER!
Also, I forgot to mention. My first project will be with Swiss Outdoor seeds so it should be interesting.
There is often a way round a lot of things. Making things possible that shouldn't logically work. I am almost certain i can get a good result from a HALOGEN, so now i just have to wait and see.
I have attached pictures so please, tell me what you think, any ideas or improvements are a good thing. Thanks.

P.S. - In The Pictures, The Two 60watt CFL's Have Not Been Added Yet, And The Bulb Is Only 100watt. Still Waiting On The 250watt.
