    venting with
    4' ductbooster fan (90 cfm) placed at the top w/ a 4' Pvc light trap
    4' passive intake near the bottom ~ pvc Light trap
    2 gallon poly grow bags (10'x6.25'x6') w/ Foxfarm OceanForest Organic soil w/ some FloraNova bloom & Grow added

  6. If you wanna add CFL's go with 6400k to balance out the spectrum from the T5's. Sounds to me like two plants would fit pretty well, but I'd be careful about running different strains in the same bucket.

    If you have a closet why the trashcan?

  9. must be semi stealthy to start & this is step 1

  10. Do you think LST is needed for 2 plants ?
    Its been years since I last grew but I was thinking of either LST or Topping them as a way to increase yield. leaning towards LST

    This project is just now starting so I can change a few things around before crunch time.
  11. ~BUMP~
    * also *
    Has anyone had experience with 90w UFO LED + T5's and small areas like this? .... do you expect a heat issue ?

    IE... 90 cfm should be good ?
