  1. Hi. How do most of you hang your lights and power them if you're doing a grow in your closet?

    I'm planning on growing 3 pots of AK-48, and I have no idea how to do this light fixture set up.

    Suggestions would be much appreciated.
  2. Depends on what type of lighting the growers is using, T5 hang by chain, HPS cord, cfl's by DIY rack
  3. Screw hooks in to the ceiling in the closet (get them trough the drywall on the ceiling in to some wood(stud)) about 1-1.5' apart ,connect two chains to those hooks and connect the chance to the hooks on the light.
    I personally think that closet grow will create some odor leaks.... My personal preference is grow tent - easy to set up , no damages to the house .... Good luck.
  4. ....Hang it... Generally I use like a heavy duty wall hangasr for say coats, and suspend it from their with a power sun chord. Heres a pic I think I have, IMG_1864.JPG
  5. I personally use chain for my 600w HID, nice because you can adjust it in about .5"-1" lengths depending on size of links.
  6. ill answer in another fashion....i do hang my lights from a chain, but i have a tent. for the power cords i run them through the hole in the tent and drilled a smallish hole in the back corner of my closet. (my closets sit in the room, not the sunk in wall kind, so the back corner of my closet is flush with my walls) i then just run the cord to a surge protector or ext. cord depending on what it is. id NEVER run a huge light through an ext. cord though, unless i had a heavy duty commercial ext cord
  7. Use the force Luke
