This had been a long-time dream of mine, and I fondly imagined my first harvest, curing my flowers to perfection, and collecting their resin for concentrates. I saw myself carefully journaling their progress, and eventually becoming an expert caretaker of myself and my marijuana garden.
“1st time grower. Plants are 1 month old, and 12″ tall now. Set up for less than $250. Used cab.w/4 bulb, 24″ T5’s, 4″ elec exhaust, Thanx for great info.”
Then reality set in: I have a small space, in a small house, in a crowded neighborhood.
Also, I installed a “Kill-a-Watt” device to monitor my electrical usage so I can easily calculate the total extra cost to my electricity bill each month.
This allowed three different height settings for the light. The unused two positions are capped off. Take a look…
A rule with any grow space is to have the intake’s opening twice the open area of the exhaust’s.
Important: The opening for your intake hole should be about twice the size of your exhaust hole.
Of course I wanted to filter the intake air to keep out dust, pet hair, pollen, mold and the like.
