Lighting problems for stealth grow

  1. Hey guys,

    I made myself a stealthed PC and its equipped with a power source and two exhaust fans. I plan on making a carbon scrubber to filter any smell. I will only be growing 3 plants max I would imagine, maybe less due to space constraints. I have a 24" 15 watt flourescent tube I could use. Is this enough for a nice little grow like mine or do I need more? I have two fixtures I could use but not CFL bulbs, how can I buy CFLs without looking to suspicious? My dad will probably ask me about my package if he sees it/has to pick it up. Most likely, however, he wouldn't see the package... How about two 25 watt CFLs? Will they get the job done? (100w equivalent)
  2. Youre gonna need wayyy more light.
  3. it can be done with 50 watts one plant tho u really need at least 100watts per plant....but like i said it can be done...just expect an 8th as ur yield......also u have to look at acual watts....not equivalent wattage
  4. Thanks guys,

    I've convinced my parents that I care about growing exotic plants, so buying CFLs is not going to look too suspicious. I'm going to grow some coverup plants to hide the smell and account for all supplies used... How will 30 watters suffice? I plan on using 2 or three, remember it is a small PC case so I will not be growing much, actually probably about a square foot or two, and no bigger than that. I will be growing short, small plants, and only like 5 at most.Plus, this is all for personal interest only. How does 90 watts on the plants sound?
