    Hi all, mentioned in my last thread that I'd be consolidating my threads and journal/blog posts into one thread. it just makes it easier than trying to run multiple threads/updates in different locations.

    I rarely change my avatar, but a very nice gentleman here @ayr0n with some great design skills, created and sent me a new avatar recently, cheers Ayr0n! So new thread, new avatar, hoping it improves my growing skills - lol

    From time to time if I have a test or very specific run I'll run a separate thread but this will be my primary one.

    Anyone that's followed my previous posts will know I like to experiment, sometimes good, sometimes bad but hey, no experimentation, no new learnings, it's all good.

    I'm a hobby grower but like to get the most out of anything I do. In the case of growing while it's a hobby I want the best technology/efficiency to maintain as small a footprint as I can while producing good quality budz, that's what it's all about for me.

    I've been growing indoor for just over 1 1/2 years. Started growing in my 20s and just hit the 54 mark a few weeks ago so not like I'm a newbie to growing. That said, I quickly found out that growing is a completely game indoor vs. outdoor. Indoor, the environment and training is required to get the most out of my grows. To that end, after about the first year indoor, I built a custom flower room last winter, fired it up late spring this year. Spent 4 months of mainly weekends and incorporated design and technology to make it easy to operate and not have to spend a bunch of time chasing the environment. I have a business to run so a few hours a week is all I can spend on growing, like to get the most out if it. Posted that room build with details/pics, link below if anyone's interested in what I did and grabbing some ideas for your own build. My build was a combination of initial experiences indoor, many ideas picked up here in the Grow Room Design forums, and using my background in technology to make things as easy and convenient as possible. I literally "dial" my room in, depending on the season by turning the knobs on my incoming and exhaust inline fans now. Temps and humidity fluctuate huge in my area but I can simply maintain temps/humidity now by changing the setting on either my incoming or exhaust Inline fan variable controllers.

    Previous thread links for anyone interested in these subjects:

    Enough chat, I'll be posting some current pics and commentary on what I have going on right now. Like they say, pics or it never happened plus I love plant and bud porn!

    Cheers & hope some of you will pop by from time to time to see what's up in the garden :bigjoint:

    No problem! I love you're flower room! Matter of fact I'm taking one of your ideas if you don't mind lol.

    I'm going to build a sub-floor along the same lines as your's. I'm in a basement to and that concrete can get pretty damn cold at night. I've got run off pots but I want something better.

    Hey not at all, why I posted it, hopefully helpful for some ideas. The sub-floor imo is a necessity in a basement as concrete cold and dampness can screw with your babies. Even skids are better than sitting on the floor. It was also one of the easiest parts of the build, other than I got a little elaborate with the false panels in case I want to try hydro down the road ;)

    That's sick man!!! Could you please remove the '9' from that, and I'll definitely use it! (The 9 in my name is a reference to my graffiti crew, and I only used it because 'spek' was taken).

    You're awesome :)

    Thanks Polo, nice to have an on-site graphics designer, while his boss pays the tab - sweet
