So a few months ago I started to turn a cabinet I had in my house into a grow box. The box on the inside is painted flat white and is 6 cubic feet of space. What I first did was choose the lights that I was going to use, since I was trying to save as much money as possible I went with CFLs. For veg growth I am using 3 26 watt at 1600 lumens each(6500k) plus a 55 watt at 3860 lumen(2700k), and i have two tube CFL lights one 20 watt 1300 lumens (3000k) and one 17 watt 800 lumens(7000k). The 26 watts and the 55 watt all are mounted on the side of the box to allow as much room for the plants to grow up wards. I had a couple out dated computers that I was going to scrap so i took out all the fans and wired them to 12v adapters to run them. I have three fans total. Two sucking air out and one sucking air in. the two fans sucking out are near the lights to expell the access heat the generate. The inlet fan I have some dyer ducting that I had left over from what I used for my washer. I have it directing the air to the middle of the of box so that the plants have a breeze going around them. My next thing I am going to add when i get the time is a homemade co2 generator made out of a two liter bottle some warm water sugar and activated yeast. I will be using air tubing for a fish tank to direct the cos over the plants. When it comes time for flowering, I have two more 55 watts that I am going to replace two of the 26 watts with. I am going to leave a 26 watt and the 20 watt that are closer to the blue spectrum. I feel this will help give a good spectrum for the plants to grow. I am currently using it to grow, I have just started my first grow with it. I have never grown before so I hope this works. Feel free to leave any comments or question.
