Large box grow journal: t5 system.
I'm starting this now, however build posts will be slowly starting. I have a 8 x 4 x 4 wooden box I am going to be doing a stealth grow in. It is sealed so I will be adding fans to bring air in and out. I made this for my lizard however he never got to use it before I sold him. It has a nice window on the front that I am going to paint black, then white. So any one who looks at it will think it's a cage turned off. The walls are water proof and epoxy ... Grey, I will be painting them white with more epoxy or applying Mylar them. Not sure yet.
I have 18 bulb 80 watt t5 system I will be installing Thursday.
I still am unsure what I am going to use to grow yet. Pots, hydro, air, bubble.... No idea.
I will be doing a scrog just because of hight.
Thanks guys! Photos to come.

so you dont have sitting air in your stealth box
i think you should go with a 6" booster inline fan for like $48
i think it pulls 166cfm and your box is gonna be 128 cubic feet
if your just gonna stay with low temp lights like cfl tubes and leds then i would say ebb&flow or dwc top feed hybrid
run either of them with a SoG + Scrog
18 bulbs * 80 watts= 1440 watts *.25GPW (Grams per watts [growers skills range 4rm .25 - .60]=360 min grams per watts if meant factor*
but yea bro i love love building new grow rooms an yea make me so happy
* is [SoG/Scrog = 4x4 (16 square feet)] ≤ light's area
I got some new equment and stuff to post up later. Got my fan, lights, nutes, compost stuff, plants. Still waiting on a few things to find. So far so fun.
I also have two 400 watt hps to turn on for flower.
Right now until things get better for me, I think I am going to run soil.

Oh, I guess I missed the best part of this grow system. It's all built into my bed.
My bean sprouted in 17 hours.
Bean is in soil right now. Her root was about 1.5" long.
So, I installed some floor tile today. Remember my this grow box is under my bed, short and will be running T5.
The floor is waterproof under the tile, with four coats of epoxy. Not really going to run grout. Seems kinda pointless. The slate is going to suck up the light on the bottom and not to burn the leaves. My lights are off right now, just a small 300 watt box light. Still got a lot of work to do on this. Installing inline fan, and carbon filter next, then a/c, then reflective walls.
