Goomba's 3x Green-O-Matic Autoflower CFL Stealth Grow Hi everyone. This is a grow I'm running in addition to my first grow which is not yet harvested, Autoflowering Northern Lights from Nirvana with CFL's. If you're interested in that journal, please visit my profile. My criterion in determining my chosen strain was: - Cheap - Small and stealthy with reasonable yield. - Fast Green-o-matics are indica dominant autoflowering dwarfs with an advertised lifespan of 8 weeks (seed-harvest) so I assume I will run 9-10 weeks. Here is my setup so far. Oh yeah, and a disclaimer that I'm not a pro or anything, this is my second grow. Materials mostly come from dollar tree and Walmart. I am poor, this is a key factor, lol. Material List: - 1x large plastic bin with lid $15.00 from Walmart - 3x 1 gallon smart pots from Amazon, $5 each. - 3x 45 watt 6500k + 3x 35 watt 6500k for flowering, totalling about 250 watts across 3 plants. - 5x Car reflector shiny foil things, from dollar tree. $1 each - 1x roll of masking tape, 1x roll of ductape, both $1 each at dollar tree. - 2x ziplock bag, bought a whole box for $1 from dollar tree. - Travel suitcase packing cables (bungee cables) $1 for a pack of 3 from dollar tree. - 45 feet of copper wire from Walmart $2 - Zipties $1 Dollar tree a bag - Ducting $5 at Walmart - 2x PC fans with additional cables and power source $30 from Amazon - 1x box of office clips, the big black painful ones. $1 at dollar tree. Total cost about $127 to build about. The plastic bin is about 3 feet wide, just perfect for my 2 gallon smart pots. I chose smart pots because I've read great information about how they help root growth. Look them up if you're interested. I also wanted pots that were made of a soft material in case the growbox was too small and I had to squash them a little bit. I then lined the inside of the box and the lid with the car heat reflectors, and cut holes for fans. I made a Scog with copper wire above the pots which will be used for training. The Scrog is attached to the grow box directly, not the pots, but this is unavoidable because the pots aren't rigid. I then fastened the bungee cables at the very top of the growbox so that they can be used for bulb positioning. I've fastened my bulbs to the bungee cables with zip ties and office clips. Since the ducting was not the right size for the PC fan, I zip-tied ziplock bags over the connecting end of the duct, then cut a hole in the ziplock wide enough for it to fit over the fan, where I then ductaped it. Right now the bulbs are almost resting on the Scrog. I'll keep them there until they need to be raised then suspend them directly from the bungee cables. Hope everyone enjoys grow. Seeds arrived today and are germing in paper towels under a warm light. Hopefully will plant tomorrow. They will go straight into their final pot as autoflowers don't like being transplanted.
