  2. I'll ride along. Hit us with the details on the setup! :cool:
     
  3. I'm curious, is that just a box covered in foil (for the red eye in the sky?) in a room in your house? And the strain won't grow too tall for it?

    basicly yes a cabinet bought at walmart for like 25 bucks covered in ultraflex fire resistant mylar not foil. used this cab twice already but added the reflective material in this setup[ and a 150 watt hps instead of the cfls which took up too much space. the cab with the light gives me 16in. of growing space thats why i LST my plants with a home made netting made of hemp twine will show that later in the grow. plus two 4in fans
    90 gph submersible water pump with micro tubing and an air pump with stone to keep the water oxygenated. the reservoir is a 2 1/2 gallon tupper from walmart. like i mentions i used this setup befor. its a good grow space just have to know how to maintain it to keep the plants compact. Fimming is always good too. gives more bud sites...:smoke: and yes it in my room in the closet i keep the door little cracked open for air circulation..
     
  5. here more pics 7/8/09 seven days from sprout. the first one looks kinda spiral weird looking but healthy second plant (center) growing the fastes third one lagging behind

  10. Clean grow box man , what kinda temps are you getting?
     
  11. 77 F during the day and at night its close to 60 F i sleep with the a/c on so its fresh
     
  12. Dude, I like the box. I have a very similiar one that I made from a entertainment center. You may want to try autoflowering dwarfs on your next grow, the box is perfect for them, and you'll spend less time trying to manage the plants "small". The Big Budda White Dwarf I grew last grew only grew to 22" tall and it still put out 2oz of great bud, some grow even shorter, ....Good luck!
     
  13. than for the advise BUDACIOUS, maybe next grow i will try auto flowering dwarfs normally i just fim or LST the plants but its a hassle keeping them in check well anywho thank you :D

    didn't feel like lst this grow i fimmed the first plant on the left but that was the only one. but in all everything is going great still using General Hydroponics 3 part flora nutrients. with addition of flora blend and flora nectar.
