  1. So basically as the title suggests... I’m a yield whore and want to maximise my space in my 2.4x1.2 tent. I wanna get my big 13l humidifier and get rid of my 2k convector heater and build a box with either a 500w or 1000w heater and my humidifier then run an active intake through that to my tent. Any recommendations of materials to use as I’m assuming there will be high heat and humidity. Any one don’t this and experienced any problems or got any advice? Thanks I’m advance
  2. WELCOME! Id love to say "I'm back" with another micro grow but i have had to make a new account due to stupidly using my old user name on lots of other sites. Not gonna lie, it sucks a bit as i was a active user of the forum about 6 years ago and ran a few grow diaries then but ended up not finishing the threads. Now i come back to do another and realised a new account must be made, which means i lost my subscriber status oh well, start new! So here is what will turn into my diary for my current grow, its been 6 years since my last attempt, and again i'm just fed up of spending a fortune on what i know i can grow at home! Enough chit chat, lets get into it! For this grow i will be using a 92l storage tub, lined with diamond mylar (not very neatly if i do say so myself ), a LED light unit i purchased from a guy online who makes them (holy shit is it bright), inlet fan, exhaust fan pulling through a home made carbon filter box, 6" pots and i will be growing the sweet seed mohan ram using a good amount of low stress training to keep the plants low and bushy! This worked wonders before when growing in PC cases so i'm hoping it will contain them nicely in this box, as the light is a lot more powerful than last time and the pots are bigger so i'm sure they are going to fill the space right up!! I have grown the mohan ram before and its a great plant for small spaces due to the way it stays nice and bushy! i decided i would start the diary today and i have just about finished building the box and the seeds are almost ready for the soil! So first, the box itself! Its a very simple bodge job set up i have pieced together from random cheap bargains online, but considering my last grows were inside PC cases im gonna have way more space to work with! Its not pretty, used lots of hot glue, double sided tape for the mylar application and my trusty knife to cut rough holes for the fans to pull through. Being someone who doesn't do a great deal of building stuff though, i'm pretty happy with how it came out! The 2 fans are just 140mm PC fans, wired onto a 12v 1a power adaptor, took me an hour or so to work it all out last night but its all working now! (The fans wires were marked very weirdly so trial and error took a while to get them paired up right!). The light is a LED unit that the seller says produces 12k lumens of full spectrum light and uses a metal fin design to dissipate the heat. Each LED has 8 reflectors around it too so the light coming off of this bad boy makes the 80w CFL i was using in the PC cases look like a low battery keyring torch. Here is a couple images of the box from the outside! Now that the box is ready, the light is mounted to the top of it i decided to bang 3 seeds into some water! They all cracked nicely over night and then this morning have been put on some wet paper folded over to help them show a good root, then ill be putting them into the soil later tonight or tomorrow morning! Exciting times! I could bang them right in the soil now as they shown a nice start just in the water, but i think ill let them go another 12 hours in the tissue just so i have a good established tail before planting! The idea is going to 18/6 for the whole grow as they are autoflowering. Medium is biobizz all mix, nice and simple, i went with the plant magic last time so i thought id switch it up and try the bizz this time, and i also grabbed their try pack of the 3 organic feeds, veg bloom and topmax! I'm aiming for an OZ per plant dried if i can, then if the smaller 3rd makes much thats just a bonus! as working it out, 2 OZ would last me nicely until i could have another couple of plants ready for the chop on round 2, if this one goes well! The plan was originally just to do 2 plants as space is tight in the box, but i popped 3 seeds in to make sure atleast 2 would germinate, but all 3 are doing great so one will be going into a slightly smaller pot and either joining the other 2 in the box if the space doesn't get to tight, if down the line i start to get short of space then it may well have to be a conservatory girl if it stays nice and small. Not really a lot to add at this point, but hopefully in the next 7 days we'll have some pictures of some girls poking out of the soil and getting started good and proper!
  3. High guys! I am a complete newb here! I have only ever had one grow a few years ago, after moving to a new apartment I decided to build a stealth grow box, took me a couple of days to get all set up and planted, I started to lst at week 3. I am growing 2 sweet tooth auto's, using; Straight up coco, (never thought of a pertile mix until it was too late), 3 20w warm white CFL's ( these were added after pictures were taken), 1 85w daylight CFL, Not sure of pot size, 1 pc fan ( cool air intake), 1 small pc fan ( warm air exhaust). Please please leave any suggestions or ideas you think may help me out.
  4. High again, I'm soon going to be setting up my growdrobe and thought I'd get some insight on making my fan as quiet as possible, I've seen other threads using similar methods so hopefully it will all work out! I've ordered my fans from Greens - so hopefully the box the fans are supplied in will be ideal size for the d.i.y silencing.. I plan to put the fan in a box.. 2 side of the box will have holes for attaching my ducting to be connected to the fans inside the box / all round the fan I plan to pack with acoustic foam (lots of offcuts not expanding foam) Seal up the box and hope it works! I'll repeat the process for both my intake/exhaust fans depending how noisy they are once they arrive etc. also would the boxes on the floor be okay or should I attempt to hang them too? I'll update my post once trying out my idea but any tips on reducing noise are welcomed!
  5. Hi all. This gonna be my first grow, Im gona use a 250w Dual Agro CFL (6400k/2700k) with a CFL reflector from the top of the box.
