Grow Cupboard? Potential grow cupboard for one plant
Posted 30 April 2012 - 01:20 PM
Just wondering and maybe being a bit to hopeful but was thinking of setting up this little cupboard as room for one plant!. This is a cupboard just below my aquarium so no one would suspect a thing. I reckon i could grow a fairly decent auto flowering plant in here like a low ryder.
Problem is im shit with DIY stuff so i have some myler reflective stuff. Can always put a fan in the back but not massively worried about carbon filters.
Only problem is lighting. What kind of lighting would fit in such a small space? and without a reflector how would i have it suspended horizontally? Any ideas or maybe i have it hanging but that leaves less space for the plant surely? I have one tiny little light on at the moment which i usually use for the aquarium. My other indoor grows in my grow tent im using a dual spectrum CFL
any ideas are welcome

About 50 - 75W per square foot is good for CFL's I think.

I know id need to buy a red and blue spectrum but where do you find lighting that small and how would i attach it to the mains? I doubt lighting that small provides hangers like the slightly bigger wattage lights

Also, are you sure about the no CF? Even a small plant can really smell.

I would be,even if your venting into the room,it's smelly stuff.
