  1. High everyone [​IMG]

    I got 2 chambers the same size..1 chamber is split in half {top to bottom}The full demensions are 27"deep x 60"wide x 72"high.. [​IMG] The one you see with plants in it, now has 4 100watt Metal halide lights setup to go across the top..I got each light 12"s apart..
    At each end or the chamber I got 80watts of red GRO-LUX fluors.That is the 12/12 chamber {flower chamber}...Now in the top of the other chamber ther is 240 watts of fluors hanging overhead..This is where I start my babys.. :D On the bottom I got 2 100 watt metal halide lights..This is for clones..I am just starting to experiment with clones.. [​IMG] I am now growing with super soil that I got at home depot, I really like how good my plants are growing..It is the best {in the bag ready to go } soil that I have found..I've tried most other brands an none seem to work as well.. :D I start my seeds in 6" pots..{I only transplant once}an I keep them like that till 4 or 5 weeks an transplant into 3 gal buckets..Then I start watching real close to see when they need food..I use Miracle Gro..20-20-20..In 2 to 3 more weeks I then put them into the flower chamber..Food schultz 10-60-10 for flowering stage..12 to 16 weeks total an hope for great big buds..That is the basic setup that I got..stay cool an Grow big budz..

  2. Sounds good to me :D I still live at home with my parents but they dont mind if I have a little set up I just use my closet There is a self that is 2.5 feet from the ceiling on the ceiling I have 2 4foot 200watt cool white flours this is for my babies :) From the floor to the self is about or just over 6 feet I took off the rod you hang you coats on and put up a 1000watt HPS light, I also use 8 4 foot 200watt cool white flours on the walls for side lighting. I have 8 5 gallon buckets to grow in I dont use any cemicals or ferts nothing, just water.It has worked out well since I started indoor 3 years ago.

    Like I always say..If it works for you, and makes you happy, then it is a successful GROW..Stay cool.. :D :D :D
     
  4. I say! I forgot to mention the clones I always have a few or more clones about a month or so behind the others so I have lots to harvest :D

    Here is a drawing of chambers an where I got my fans positioned..Very important to have proper ventilation..I use a series of 3" puter fans..I got 10" fan inside blowing on plants so they will grow to be big an strong.. :D :D :D This setup works for me.. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What I would in your case is a AC..I'll bet you got lots of humidity in S. Calif..I fight humidity because I live next to the N. Platte river..{ good fishing though}Any how try that..It is mostly trial an error..stay cool.. :D :D :D
