Okay, so I went and bought a few hundred dollars of stuff someone would only want if they really were best friends with Mary Jane. I purchased one 400w switchable ballast and lamp using sun system 2 hood and hortilux eye hps bulb for now.
Made a cabinet (i suck at using tools) that is about 4x30''dx4h. I was thinking after I built it to go higher which I could by unscrewing top and adding an extension, was thinking 1.5ft higher so I dont have to worry too much about stretch and not having any exp lst or other styles of small grow.
I am using a 4'' inline duct fan pushing fresh air thru the hood and out the box. I am also using 6'' inline duct fan pushing air out and trying for a passive system in the gen box area. Purchased some FFOS and some of their other nutes like tiger bloom and open sesame . I plan on using a cabinet that was premade for a small clone/veg area after this is online and up to speed as to try for perp grow. Here are the start pics kinda crappy but will do more when motivated, also I did over water the plants in this pic kinda droopy and only a week or so old.
I keep thinking of things to add like I am in a very cold climate its three wks till spring and by me using my basement for grow box spot its kinda hard to add heat when the light is off so I am using cfl one has an output of over 360watts and then one that is 200watts, just so I can run almost 18-20hrs without over heating. If I run my 400hps I figured I wouldn't have the best veg cycle,,bad idea or safe bet by adding cfls?
Everything I say one of my voices in my head madeup and I rarely listen to them you shouldn't either,,,all farce
