So my mother in law gave me a 400w Metal Halide ballast and a few plants he had for my birthday.
My wife didn't want me spending any more money than I had to on this project. So I cleaned out my fruit cellar and set up a makeshift grow room. I have a round showe curtain rod with Mylar reflective blankets hanging for an area to bid my plants. I made a grow box out of an old shelf I had and more of the reflective blankets. I use a 4 ft. Flourescent work light with two 40 watt bulbs in it for a place to veg my plants.
Well I have used miracle grow soil and miracle grow nutrients the whole time. The plant took 6 1/2 weeks to be ready to harvest. I used miracle grow bloom booster during the flowering and I'm currently using regular miracle grow on my plants that are vegging.
Here are pics from start to finish of my plant.
