You know the drill no need to be redundant.
Today I started my indoor grow box. Bought an end table sort of thing that has 2 doors for $10. For the sake of letting the plants grow as tall as possible I made it on the side. I plan to use small hole chicken wire to stop the plant from growing too tall. I was thrifty and found that Walmart has the light reflectors for your wind shield on sale for $3. So, that is the inside lining. I am going to paint the far back wall white once I have made all the holes. I do have a 3 in 1 meter to monitor PH , light, and moisture. I have always used the pick up, pinky finger 1 inch deep method for herbs and flowers in the past but that is not an exact science so I will try the meter method.
Tomorrow, the goal is to go, on the down low of course, retrieve my light sources from storage at my parents house. then I plan to use CFL's. I am using CFL's because my friend and grow partner is using led's and we are going to compare results at the end. So far I am not sure if I will use a carbon filter, it is not needed at this pont so i will cross that bridge later. But, certainly an intake and exhaust fan. Soil I will be using is fox farm ocean, I know some criticize that it may fry young plants, but live and learn my friends.
At this point I have the seeds germinating in a zip lock bag, wrapped in moist paper towels under the bed, I will leave them alone until Monday or so. Hopefully they sprout.
I will send get pictures of the grow box to be uploaded to the computer tomorrow and post grow box 1.0.
