    Cool man! Love to see micro grows as I am still trying to fix mine, earlier in the grow I did not have a proper light on it so it stretched a bit, and now is really close to the lights (2 cfls; 1 23w, 1 13w)

    What light are you using, Im thinking of switching to led soon for the rest of the grow as my 2 cfls will only do until like, mid veg then will need to be switched for more power, but I am also on a budget lol.

    I'm using these for flower and their alot better than cfl. They give off minimal heat and have good penetration.

    I just bought some screw ins from walmart. Have a 14w/1100 lumens daylight led and one 9w/800 lumens soft white led. Ill swap the soft white for another daylight or just add another daylight in a couple weeks. Oh yeah i cut the diffuser off the daylights.

    Are you using 90° elbows on the intake, when I used them I got temp issues so out they came, problem solved.

    How did you light trap them? Right now i just have a gap in the bottom of the back wall. That was my plan though. I was gonna do about 10 two inch intake holes with pvc 90's

    Does that work pretty well for the light situation? @KrazyG

    How many of those would I need for flowering? I found a pack of 4 for 20$ CAD on amazon. Im going to also need to upgrade my box soon lol, its about 2' x 3' x 3' and my plant itself is over a foot tall not including the pot.

    Currently I only have 2 sockets available because my grow space is so small, so once I upgrade I'll probably buy a single light that would preferably be strong enough to go into flowering.

    @asetter I'd probably shoot for about half the size of what krazyg has in his pic there probably. Im just guessing though. I plan on flowering in my pc with 2 of those daylight bulbs i have.
