I'm on my third year,I've progressed from throwing some seeds in dirt outside and hoping for the best to setting up a room where I can try to actually grow some decent bud. Everything is DIY, I'm only growing for personal and to give away to friends so keeping costs down is my main goal. I found RIU last year and have loved the information exchange here. All the lights are thanks to the build threads here and I figured why not document what I'm doing and see what everyone thinks I can do better. Lights- 1 eb strip build with 8 4 ft strips, 1 eb strip build with 16 2 ft strips. 1 QB288v2 x 2 and a "high bay" light in 4000k that I got to finish off a gift card the in laws gave me.
