    I'm attempting my first grow. Seeds are currentley germanting. They are just bag seeds, still a decent bud though. Planning on a 18/6 grow time for first bit till about 4in-6in due to limited space then switch to a 12/12 to flower(ideas or thoughts always welcome)

    So setup for now
    2x 27w fell spectrum 5500kEcoSmart 27 Watt (100W) Full Spectrum Craft Light, 1 Pack (E)* - ES5M827FS at The Home Depot
    4x 27w daylight 5000k EcoSmart 27 Watt (100W) Daylight, 2 Pack (E)* - ES5M827250K at The Home Depot
    4x 23w cool white 2700k for later EcoSmart 23 Watt (100W) Soft White, 4 Pack - ES5M8234 at The Home Depot
    Box is 32in wide x 19in deep x 24in high (so short bushy plants)

    So far just running lights for a few hours to check temp, puts the box in 60F-65F

    The few question I have so far 1) Will the lights I have work or will they not work (trying to find 6500k but hard to find locally)

    Any questions just ask.

    Okay have a question I need to get some venting for my box I'm thinking pc fans will be best for size and lack of space inside for a fan 6in fan fills a 1/5 of the bottom fans I'm pretty sure I can get free use to be computer geek and still finding parts. And if I did my math right i should have approx 6 cubic feet which means even tiny little ones will work. But for the life of me cant find anyway to get power to them without using a power supply, I'm completley lost on this.
