Lighting for a stealth dresser?
I'm thinking about setting up a stealth dresser cabinet ( 18in deep, 5ft wide, 4ft height) and have no idea what lighting to use. Keep in mind this is still in the planning stages, but moving fast. I'm looking to get max yield from the space. I will have a seperate area for germ and cloning. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Also I could use ideas on method to use. Thank you.

You're dresser sounds like an extremely hot place to grow. Deciding on lights goes hand in hand with determining the level of ventilatiion and heat control you need. In your case, with a space like that, I'd go with 2 in line 150 HPS in an integrated cool tube setup. I'd have an intake fan on the bottom and an extraction fan at the top for the air in the grow, along with a mover fan to keep the plants swaying in the breeze.
Max yield from that space probably wont be what you envision for a while, if ever. It takes practice and experience to get good yields every time, and for me, that space just wouldn't cut it if I had to grow enough just for me to stay self-sufficient.
yeah i had a dresser it was more a pain in the ass to keep cool then anything and i was using cfl but if your gonna do it just make sure you have alot of vent or you will fry the baby up
