First Grow in a Dark Room DR60

    What's Up Everyone. Joined the site Recently and about to start my first grow. I have very limited space so I decided to use Top 44 Seeds and grow it in the Dark Room DR60. I hope to get at least three decent sized plants in there, but Im gonna try four.

    Im going to use two 60 Watt CFL's in there.

    A few questions.

    Any of you ever use one of these Dark Rooms?
    Should I worry about getting CO2 in there?
    What kind of fans do you all recommend I use?

    Also any helpful tips would be much appreciated.

    Doing some more research. Decided against getting the DR60. Just going to build my own. :mrgreen:

    I doubt you would be very successful with 2 CFLs and 4 plants in there :lol:

    I'm going to be using the DR80 which is one size bigger than yours, and I only plan on growing 2 at a time with a 250w HPS. Maybe after I get comfortable I'll throw in a 3rd plant, but for the most part 2 should be fine.

    A friend of mine already uses the DR80 and he recommended these items.

    DR80, 250w HPS, Light Hanging, Carbon Scrubber, Exhaust/Intake Fan (although I have my doubts on whether I need the Vortex)

    Yea, this setup is pricey but if you've got a job, you can make shit happen like myself.

    Old thread I know, but I am going to buy the DR60 and am curious what changed your mind?

    I can't decide on which light to put in, although I'm thinking an 8 light T5(2ft model). Just not sure if 8 is too many

    Aren't T5's relatively cooler than HPS setups? You should do fine with those if so...maybe still think about getting an exhaust if temperatures are an issue
