no not yet with the funds I have right now (due to back pain caused at work I am on workers comp and only recieving 60%pay) I want to stop by a specialty hydro store nearby and see what they got. To be completely honestright now the only thing I have is the fridge so I am taking y time to imprevise and modify this fridge for as good as stealth as I can get.

As far as herbies I think I know who you guys are talking (i thinkk lol) andwill be in contact to arrange somthing right around january hopefully they get here in time for good outside temps :). Im still not sure even what strain I will order WW as all i read s that its the most potent but I nedd somthing strong or back and sleep as I also have SLS. Butwrst of all I need it for my depression and high anxiaty.

I understand bro, I've got those same issues and a couple more. I went from 180 norcos a month to zero, just with weed! All I take is stomach pills from the store. Bro, I'm gonna tell ya, my first two grows were with walmart grow lights! They even told me it wouldn't work...it will, just not as good. I still use that light for cuttings and seedlings, I'm no expert, but with all these fine folks at 420 I think it's hard to fail. They present information, then we choose how we will apply it. You can't help but succeed!

I have had time to make my final decision on the lights.. I will be veging with plenty of CFL pwer lol.. The flowering stage will be having a 400 HPS vented and I will be lining the fridge wall with panda sheets. I am actually leaning toward using a drip system as I can get better yield. My problem is since I cant use drip in te veg cycle howcan I transplant it safely t the drip bucket safely?? Any input will be appreciated..

I don't quite understand bro, a drip goes in the top of the pot, generally held in place by a spike or fastened to the edge of the pot, anything that will keep the emitter where it will function as you like. That emitter, spike, and drip line can be moved from pot to pot at your will simply by removing it, and placing it in another pot. I have been out of the loop for a long time bro, and maybe you're talking about something I haven't seen. If it's a commercial setup, I can google it and have a look and possibly come up with other solutions. I have a friend that uses a large intricate drip system with good results. I have also pondered this idea, and have some ideas what a drip system should do, and some designs that will water in a manner consistent with fundamental practices. I hope this helps. When I'm choosing a light for a specific space, i consider a couple of things. First, the spectrum of the light to accomplish it's designated function, second, the footprint of the light ( effective coverage at a given height ), next the amount of heat produced by the light, and how well I can manage it.

I think what I am trying to say is tfreezer is only 2 x 2 so for obviousereasons I cannot put a 5 gall bucket or container. I am sure I can engineer or rig somthing up but I am not sure how I woul actually pick the plant up and transfer it to the lower 2 1/2 or 5 gallon bucket/container in the lower fridge area which is 2w x 4h.. Sorry my keys some times sticks so when I am medicated and typing I dnt normally check for proper spelling lol..
