First Setup (Ever) Tell me what you think!

  1. Hey all! I posted about a week ago about a setup I had for germination. Although my germination was going badly, my first seed germinated, and I'm getting more seeds soon.

    Right now I live in a huge house: when I say huge, I mean its 48,000+ Sq feet. I found an attic in my house that has never been visited by any of the cleaners or my parents. I can tell because it was filled with cobwebs. I am going to bring a couple of friends over to help me clean the place up before I start my setup. What I wanted to know was two things:

    1) What you think of my setup that I am getting, and if there is anything that I'm missing or should upgrade let me know


    2) The door to the attic is unlocked, however the lights do not work inside of it so it would be unlikely that anyone would go up. Is there anyway I could block off the attic from the inside so the entrance doesn't look weird?

    Ok, here's the setup that I bought and am working on at the moment (under each item listed is a website linked to the item for more information):

    400w HPS Ballast System w/ Four Sided Horizontal Reflector and 400w HPS Bulb (55,000 lumens)

    12 Jiffy Pots (Once the plants get too big I'll get bigger pots, this is just for the seedling stage)

    ONA (Odor Neutralizing Agent) 6 oz block

    Mylar (25' x 48")

    And I got these nice clothes hanging cardboard boxes with a metal shaft through the top to keep my small/mini harvest in and I'd hang my lighting system on the metal rod (I'll get a picture later if anyone requests it).

    Also, I bought 2 cardboard pieces to cover the light being emitted by the light without being shown through the door to the entrance of the attic.

    The mylar will be glued to the inside of those cardboard clothes boxes in order to reflect as much light as possible for the plants.

    Please tell me how far away the light should be and anything else that would be useful.

    Thanks for your time and consideration guys!:)
  2. 48,000 square feet? That's not a house, that's a castle, literally. For comparison, Bill Gates' house is 50,000 square feet, and he's the richest person in the world.

    But even so the same rules apply -- don't grow in your parents' house. Or castle.
  3. Well it is a big house... ok, I'll be honest, the 2nd biggest in my state.

    But the fact is they will never find it and I just want some advice or suggestions on my setup.

  4. you can try im hiding a grow from my parents right now n my house is like idk 4000 sq feet lol
  5. Haha yeah, all I want to know though is what people think of my setup... anyone out there want to say something? Also, what else could I use to make a small little cubicle like area covered in Mylar (besides cardboard considering that some people think it's too flamable)?
  6. You shouldn't grow in your parents' house, period. Doesn't matter how much you think no one will find it.
