    Hey guys just started setting up a new closet in my basement.
    Its not much to look at now but I'll show you what I'm working with.
    Either later tonight or early tomorrow I'll line the closet in reflective shit and start these seeds up.
    As for now here's a pic of the closet as it looks now and all my nutes and shit.
    Thanks for stopping by :blsmoke:

    not bad for a quick setup brother, make sure its at least remotely airtight, you might not care about smell now but 6 weeks into flowering it may be a different story

    Good Luck!

    Thanks guys....How do u guys feel about plug-in fabreeze and those renuzit wax air fresheners? Cuz smell isn't a huge issue but out of respect for everyone else is like to keep it least smelly as possible

    They only attempt to mask the smell by overpowering it. You really need something to eliminate it. i.e.carbon filter/ozone generator.

    Would an air purifier work at all?

    The filter has to be activated carbon with at least a 1 1/2" - 2" inches thick bed of carbon. You pretty much cant overpower the smell, but what you can do is find a "smelly thing" of any kind as long as it compliments and mixes well with the smell of the strain you are growing ie... spicy, fruity, skunky or wut ev. Its like "pot"pourri. <-- I know ..:roll:

    Carbon filters are the best...Worth every penny...Look into some ONA gel or liquid. I like linen scent...get a seedling heat mat, and you should be ok... good luck...

    So I'm on a well and our water is how one might say, Hard as a motherfucker (HAM)...it comes out at like 7.5 ph and if I just add ph down its fine but when I mixed in plant food....it shoots way back up...every morning so far its gone up from about 5.7-5.9 back to like 7.2...I don't wanna have to run a million 5 gallon water bottles back n forth from the store....what do I do.....water softener?
