This is my 5th grow ever, but it's my first retry since my string of fail back in the day. I'm hoping for some sweet success this time around! Here we go! Well i'm about 70% done with the construction of the cab itself, my last step is to build the light and install it in the cab! Here is a lowdown of how i designed it. So i found a small bedside table with wheels, and decided to turn it into a stealth grow cabinet, and i also settled on CCFLs for the grow light. I thought it would be a WONDERFUL idea to use a computer power supply to run the lights as they are 12V, and a typical PSU outputs a LOT of current for the 12V line. An ATX power supply also switches on/off via a small logic signal, perfect for control via a micro computer or the like! Well, it was after i installed the PSU that i encountered problems, such as my logic controller being a real bugger to get going (timing wise) among other conundrums, so i decided to modify a standard timer i had left-over from my last grow, and get it to switch the logic supply. I've basically ended up with a standard grow, minus plug-packs: A power supply switched by a mechanical timer. Only the switching order is different; the timer is powered by the PSU's filtered mains, and switches it on via the "PS-ON" logic line. The computer PSU is doing all the work, with a benefit: the fan (when i turned it around) acts as my air intake, as such the power-supply performs three functions: Power-supply (duh!), Switching, AND Ventilation! The 5v standby voltage also allows me to run maintenance lights and an auxiliary exhaust fan without needing to hog more than one spot on my power-board. So all up, while i didn't get the epically-cool results i hoped for, i still have a great cab that is rock-solid! I have decided to code-name the cab "Shiva", and i'll be finishing the construction on Monday when my lights arrive I'll be posting my pics of the cab on Monday, at the moment it's just a box with the hardware half-mounted! Oh, and i gathered my beans, i found some "tiger stripe" seeds i got from some dude when i went to high-school, they're about 4 years old, so i'm wondering if they're still good? I would rather go with a named seed than some mystery bagseed i've got lying around. Can't wait to get this thing started! Edit: CCFL - Cold Cathode Flourescent Lamp, Commonly found in old-er scanners and LCD monitors. Mine are actual products, mainly sold for lighting up computer cases and the underside of cars... Still, they are really bright for their size!
