(The following is merely an introduction to become acquainted with my current situation, feel free to skip ahead to see my current setup plan!) About Me Hey there fellow City members! Call me Argonath - I'm your average "Cannabis Crusader;" quiet, introverted and polite. I'm nine-teen and I've been enjoying the herbal lifestyle for just about a year, and after much rumination and contemplation I've decided to venture into the realm of self-sufficiency. If for nothing else, the science and botany behind this absolutely beautiful, majestic plant is more than enough to get my feet wet in this abhorred but adored underground. Though my contribution to the community, as seen through my low post count, leaves a lot for me to improve upon, I feel that I am a complete member. To stress again - I'm introverted, and as such, I often find myself simply reading and acquiring vast amounts of information without readily pressing the reply button. Let's just say I like to "soak it all in." The Plan Without further adieu, allow me to reveal my brainchild: Operation Stickyfingers. With a scheduled launch date in late November, I am hoping for a more than generous (as always!) reply from my brothers (and sisters) of the City to reassure my monetary, mechanical, and scientific situation. The box will be a dresser. Now, I'm going to try and explain as best as I can in words here. (There are pictures in this post, feel free to open then to gain a better idea of what I am saying.) I intend on "gutting" my dresser completely. That is, removing all of the actual drawers, but keeping the "face plates" of each. Now, those "face plates" will be re-attached using glue or perhaps another soft mechanical means back onto the dresser to give the illusion of a fully functional dresser. In other words, if you try to pull on one of the drawer handles, it won't work. It's merely glued onto the dresser itself. So, that being the case, what's left is the hollow shell of a dresser whose dimensions are as follows: Twenty-eight inches (28" or 2'4") wide, fifteen inches (15" or 1'3") deep, and thirty-eight inches (38" or 3'2") tall. To answer your question - yes, it will have to be stealth. Thus, I am planning on throwing my dresser in my closet to "save room" after I rearrange all of the furniture in my room. The new area to hold my clothes will be a small night-stand-dresser that I already have. I'm unsure as to how many plants I will be allowed to grow in such a confined space. I was initially under the impression that growing two plants would be fine but I would need the advice of the City's expert panel to confirm that. Photographs (The following are thumbnails. Please click to see a larger view.) Please remember that the following views are all from the front. When finished, I intend on having access through the back by a hinged door. Also, the drawer sliders and all other obstacles will be removed! Side picture with sizes labeled. Front view with drawers removed. Front view with drawers removed - looking down. Side view showing relative size. The Execution My initial budget was set at around two-hundred dollars. However, I am a firm believer in "quality with a price." Thus, I am willing to push that budget to three-hundred dollars if need be. I plan on having one fan, since the intake vent should draw air in due to negative pressure created by the exhaust. Again, that is subject to change based solely on what is learned in this thread. I haven't browsed any hardware, mainly because I'm not too sure exactly what I need. If anyone can comprise a list of essential tools, I would be deeply appreciative. Now, I've done some reading and research in the field for the last month or so. My friend even let me borrow his copy of the "Grower's Bible." You can only do so much reading, in the end it's experience that separates the skunk from the shwag, the harvest from the death. So, with that in mind, I stand now before the City with open arms. Please, if you have any input on the matter; if you've been SoG growing for the past twenty years; if you've grown one plant in a PC case; if you have the most elaborate hydro setup known to man; if you haven't grown, but rather have anything to offer, please lend me your aid!
