I'll be posting a journal in two to three weeks now, but technically haven't started yet, so no journal yet. Got my 150 watt hps light from www.e-conolight.com and modded it so the ballast is outside the box, which has yet to be built. I put a fan on the ballast inside an old computer power supply box and it works great. The light bearly heats up, but I haven't kept it on longer than an hour and I think it will eventually, so I'm going to hook up a 60 cfm computer fan and standard cheap aluminum ducting. The reflector/hood is really crappy, but I don't have time or money to build a decent one and can't buy one the size I need. I'l drill holes in it to accomodate the fan and ductiong, which will lead to the back to the carbon scrubber (see below for details). I'm building the frame for the box right now and you'll see it in a week and a half or so when it'll be pretty much done. The current planned dimensions are 1.5ft (deep) x 2.75 ft (wide) x 2.5 ft (tall). I'll be making a frame out of 1x2s cut to the dimensions, drilled together to make the frame for the box. The boxes floor will be elevated off the floor for better ventilation by about 1.5 inches. The legs of this will be attached to a .5 inch thick piece of particle board which will support the weight of the rest of the box, which will be placed on top of this "table." The sides of the box will be built out of 1/4 inch thick or 3/8 inch thick particle board cut to the abovesaid dimensions. The back will be made with a "carbon scrubber (two screens sandwiching activated carbon from an aquarium store). The front will have a thin 1/8 inch Masonite (super compressed sawdust sheet) which will slide in as a door. All the sides will have laminate placed on them when finished so as to appear as a strange piece of IKEA furniture. The inside will be lined with Mylar on all sides save for the back, which is the carbon scrubber. Instead of adjusting the light fixture, I will elevate the plants when young, slowly reducing height as they get older. I'll only have about 1.5 feet total for plant height, this does not include pot height, which will be about .75 feet deep and about 1.25 feet in diameter. There will be one pot per plant (2 pots total). I'll be starting them off in jiffy pots and will grow six, or however many survive germination (from six seeds), and I will continue growing them until i can ascertain which are males based off of rapidity of growth, node pattern, and if necessary, force flowering. Once I can ascertain which ones will most likely be female, I will take the two healthiest candidates and transport them to the larger pots. The pots themselves will be simple large pots cut down to the dimensions I need. I want square pots, but can't find them, so those will have to do. There should be drain holes on the bottom of the pots, but if not I can always make some. Below the pots will be placed an upside down cover of an old tupperware container to catch drained water. In the back, a 10 dollar desk fan will continually blow air at canopy level in order to strengthen the plants and also provide a bit more ventilation. I have considered putting a couple of two liter bottles full of yeast, water, and sugar for Co2 Production. Though there is some debate as to whether or not this will be beneficial on a grow this size, I have ascertained that it cannot hurt and is worth a try. My soil will consist of 1/3 Organic Soil (PH neutral, no nutrients), 1/3 worm casting, 1/3 Pearlite. I will adjust with bat guano and blood meal (blood meal in extreme cases of Nitrogen deificiency, most likely not going to use). I will need advice on adjusting the soil once flowering is induced. I will be employing FIM, LST, and tying down branches to promote more node growth and a wider plant. The pot size will also encourage more wider growth as opposed to tall growth, which I am obviously trying to avoid. Let me know what you guys think of these plans. Thanks in advance.
