how do you adjust the cfls closer to the plant if it is smaller?
you might be over thinking this
if you cant move the light. raise the plant
that grow doesnt account for the smell
true that, most of them dont sadly.
carbon filter can be added tho np.(with some mods ofc)
or ona works for most strains(did not help much with my afghan drying last year tho haha stunk up the whole house off a small amount)
It was scrapped for a bigger scale set-up. I have yet to put it into operation though.
i like to hear that! wish i could do the same atm
what you thinking for a grow box now?

2 68L storage boxes, foil lined (have mylar to go in for the next grow) with 4x30w cfls.
For ventilation I used 2 120mm pc fans for exhaust and one for circulation. All powered by a laptop charger.
For the whole grow i used 2 of each spectrum bulb and it worked well. As for lighting, i preferred my method of having them hanging from the top individually. That way you can independently raise or lower them to get them as close to the plant as you can.
Watch out when spraying them white, make sure you sand the surface and primer to give the paint something to stick to. I didnt and it ended up all flaking off.

Wow this thread still gets bumped every now and then. I scrapped this plan for a grow tent and a 400w HPS light. Have already pulled two decent harvests from them and I currently am starting on another (Deadhead OG and Blue Dream). Next step is to try to go perpetual.
Exactly what I've been doing for the last 5 years.. every two months I get 9oz give or take from two plants.. I just take cuttings before they go into flower and the cycle continues
