My new grow box

  1. I went out to Home Depot today and bought all the items I need to start a small single(maybe 2) plant grow. With the exception of buying paint, my bill came up to $73.

    I am going to be using a 21 gallon Gladware container. I bought 2 23W Soft White CFLs (Color temp 2700K) and I also bought 2 27W Day Light CFL(color temp 6500k). I plan on LST my plants because the container can't support the full height of a plant. The only thing I am not sure about is ventilation.
  2. Ventilation may be the most important factor in small grow cab's.

    PC fans, small desk fan, oscillating fan etc. You'll need something that moves the moist air, lets the plant breath, avoid mold, keeps it cool. If you use a single fan, I would put it was an exhaust fan, I think you could get away with just having plenty of vent holes for natural air intake and one exhaust fan. 2 fans would be better of course.
  3. Should I have both sets of lights on at the same time? or should I only use the soft white up until it starts to flower?
