DAY 1 (07/06/12)
I have been looking around the site for a few months and decided to grow again! , I read about 100 different threads and posts and forums and you guys seem to know and help more! I have grown before, but not with all the right lights and soil so those yields were minimum and the plants grew slowly and very tall. This time round with a very limited space and a small budget I set up a mini "grow op"
I have a very very small indoor setup in some old bin that I have. Lined the inside with tinfoil (only temp. For 1 or 2 more days), got a nice bucket and some nice potting soil and germinated 2 seeds using the paper towel formula and handling the seeds with a tweezer and germinated 2 more seeds directly in the soil. I'm using a 65watt 6400k daylight cfl and a 20watt 4000 (highest I could find around in the "normal size") cfl with a fan blowing into the bin over the lights and plants through a vent hole that I made at the back of the bin. My bin is about 30cm x 30cm x 70cm
I planted 4 seeds in total and 3 has come up so far so the lights are on and the fan's running. With both lights and the fan the temp. is about 24 - 26'C. In this small space I will propably only grow 1 MAYBE 2 of those plants anyway, don't know how to choose as I have to choose now and its still very early!
I have pretty high hopes with this setup even though I know I propably can't grow a very big plant.
I attached some photos, of the full setup, from the top, of the plants and of the vent hole.
