My recycled grow room

  1. Dunno if this is the right section or not. But wanted to talk about my room setup. Its nothing fancy.
      For the light, I just converted an old 400W overhead light into a separate bulb and ballast. I just added a cord is all. Then I used a metal electrical junction box to mount the socket too. That is attached to a section of ducting that is a makeshift reflector for now.
    You can find these lights for free/cheap everywhere. I am just using a $30 bulb from the hardware store, WORKS GREAT.
    Around the hood is reflective windshield covers from the dollar store. They hold the heat in (cold drafty attic/storage room) and keep the light in. I dont have to worry about darkness, the room is blocked off well enough to just shut the door.
    I have a cheap temp monitor thats wireless and a fan that was laying around.
    Everything I use I try to find something I have already or something I would just throw out. For early stages of life I am using soda bottles for pots and milk jug bottoms for drain trays.

  2. Pics of the light would be nice
    re using junk is a great idea, so long as you don't kill yourself or others
    Its just a 400W so I am not running crazy power or heat levels.
