Hi folks Bean here, thought I'd like to share what i have been up to for the past few months. This is my first grow but have made a considerable effort both in looking after them and the initial set-up. I think i will start at the beginning. Before i bought anything, I went to talk to a guy at my local hydro store. It quickly became apparent to me that there was far more planning and research had to be done before germination! the fellow at the shop gave me some mags "the Urban Gardener" to be specific. sadly they are no-longer in production but they were pure gold. articles on every aspect. medium, ventilation, lighting, control units. so after several months of reading and shopping around i decided my plan was ready. I built a box inside the desired room made from thermal insulation kingspan. I chose this because i understood that temperature control is very important and that it might help to keep temps stable. as it turns out i would probably have been fine with a tent.
