DIY - DWC - Scrog - CFL - Cab


New Member
OK I am about to start a new grow in my new DIY grow cab.

I bought an old armoir at a thrift store for $40


I installed two bathroom ceiling fans as ventilation. The intake is less powerful than the exhaust which will be hooked to a DIY carbon filter.


For the light I wired 10 sockets into 1 1/4" PVC. I have 42 watt CFL's 7 are 6500k and 3 are 2700k to start and then I will flip that to 7 2700k and 3 6500k when I go to flower.


The tub is a 10 gallon rubbermaid tote. I will generally be using 5 to 6 gallons of water to bring the water level to just below the netpots.


I have an external air pump connected to two 10" air stones. I also have a tiny submersible pump in the tub that is connected to a drip manifold. A drip lines connects to each of the netpots and will connect to each of the rockwool cubes.

I have the rockwool and hydroton soaking since yesterday in 5.0 ph water and tub is operating with 6.0 ph water. I plan to soak the seeds in warm wet paper towel tonight and insert into the system tomorrow 11/12/13.
Nice job on the saved cabinet!!! Love your DIY light too. + reps for your DIY!
great light see if maybe u can cut a hole in top and vent one straight out one of those ceiling vents those 2700k bulbs can get pretty hot I use them a lot..... just a thought I haven't perfected a vent yet for mine...
Ok the seeds soaked overnight in wet paper towel in luke warm water. The all sprouted little taproots and all went in the system today 11/12/13. No light yet though. Everything else is on. Hopefully in a couple days we will see leaves on all of these.

How did this grow turn out?

We would love to be updated with some pictures and info.

How about posting a 420 Strain Review?

I am moving this to Abandoned Journals until we get updates.

Thanks and hope all is well in your world.

Love and respect from all of us here at 420 Magazine.
