I decided i would grow in a crawl space off one of the bedrooms we use as storage. The first picture is a little closer than the second but the second has a piece of cardboard (will be mounted higher) that i painted white. I am using 2 grow lights i bought from....never guess it... WALMART! ten bucks each, good deal i thought. The third picture is one showing what it looks like all sealed up (just put door up and turn little latches lol). There is no light escaping and i cant hear the fan really, you can hear a little buzz, but i dont know if yould notice it with out knowing its there. I also painted the inside of the door white with the little bit of paint i had left. I also bought 100W light bulbs and lightbulb sockets on one end and plug on the other. The light bulbs are 2700K. The wattage on the grow lights are 75W output, 16W usage, i believe thats what they were. Suggestions? like i said i have two 100W (23W actual) cfl lights i plan on adding these once i transplant my plant into the larger pot. i plan on using an auto flower strain called LR2 x AK-47 to be the first one i try. im not sure if i listed the seeds i ordered but the seeds include red dwarf buddha, Lowryder #2 x AK-47and Sweet Dwarf. The free seed i received is UFO#1 Reserva Privada Cole Train. Not too sure if that is a great strain, height or length from germ to harvest, but hey...it is free. I plan on doing LR 2 x AK47 first just cause its the one i am most interested in, then i will try Sweet Dwarf, finishing with Red Dwarf Buddha. And possibly UFO#1 Reserva Privada Cole Train indoors, but i think i am going to use that as my first outdoor grow. (fingers crossed for whole growing experience)
Oh and everything i bought added up to less than 70 usd. i was pretty pleased. So supplies was $70 and seeds were about $65 equals about $135 total spent, so as long as i get about a half oz COMBINED from all plants, i came out ahead, plus i get the experience =]
as for the first picture, i labeled some junk, i got bored lol. and i have the 100w cfls, menards has them on sale! =] 4 pack for 6 bucks.
