Lowryder Attic Grow In A Grow Tent

Discussion in 'Indoor Grow Journals' started by 10man, May 4, 2009.

  1. Hi Everyone. I started this grow about 2 weeks ago. Im really having a blast with it. After buying the tent i realized that i should have built a grow box to save some money. The problem i was having was fitting the wood in the attic. Oh well , what it is, is what it is. This is my first grow and any tips would be greatly appreciated. They are in FFOF soil and I have Grow Big and Big Bloom to use later. I started using a very diluted grow big mix and it burnt them a bit so I am using strait water now untill the middle of the week when i will go back to 1/2 cap in a gallon of water and see how it takes.

    Setup Pic 1
    In this photo I have 7 100 w Equivalent daylight bulbs and 2 300 w Equivalent soft lights. I would love to use my HPS but its to hot in the attic to use it. So its CFL's I guess.

    Here is my tent in the attic setup. It is hooked to the AC duct in my attic to keep it cool. It stays around 75-80 so far. My wife is wigging out because I have it freezing in the house. She would crap a loaf if she knew I was growing up there but she has never been in the attic and she is scared to death to go up there so lucky me :).

    My 4" filter and fan. Its a bit noisy so I set up a speed controller on it. Still quite a bit of air displacement, really sucks in the sides of the tent.... oh yeah the the tent is 2x2x4 and barely fits in the attic.

    As you can see here. Oh and all those cored look like a disemboweled robot. I HATE CORDS lol. Someone needs to invent cordless electricity. I can see that going really well. Walking along with your pacemaker and ..BLAMO.. get zapped by some cordless electicity. NICE lol
