When you say DIY abilities, what does that entail. I have no experience with electricity, or electrical components. It’s one thing I’ve never messed with. I can figure stuff out pretty quick, but I don’t want too much margin for error. I don’t want to end up with a pile of wires that cost me $300... but I’m down to trying it out. I was going to go with http://timbergrowlights.com/model-2vl/ But I don’t know if that’s enough wattage for my area.
