Lights and Fan-
Well, I was able to set up my new light fixture last night. It's got two 55w and two 42w bulbs. My bubble bucket girl seems to love it! It's growth has taken off with the first set of 3 leaves starting to grow quickly- but it may just be the nutes too. I want to use one of those set-ups for each bucket. Would that be too much? It's a small space and got really warm, but I bought a fan today and it cooled down pretty quickly. I'll have to see if it actually keeps it cool. I heard if I put wet towels in there, it'll produce humidity and help cool it down- is that true/good for the plant? Well, I may just make another light set-up like the 4-way then make a 2-way set-up and put it in the middle because the one in the middle will be getting light off the other two. Make any sense?
I still need to put the other 2 plants into their buckets, of course. But I need to figure out what's the best thing for lights/heat. I still need to get a couple air stones and air pump(s) for the buckets. So as soon as I figure out the light situation and get paid, I'm going to finish my set-up.
What do you think so far? What's your opinion about the lights- more than just "Shove as many as possible in there!" haha If you want to, give me any tips, tricks, and criticism- it all helps.
