OKAY 1ST :IM NEW (HI!, :439:)
MY FIRST GROW WILL BE FROM 2 CLONES I JUST PICKED UP AT THE CO-OP
I THiNK THE GUY AT THE CO-OP TOLD ME THEY WERE OGxSOUR DIESEL.
NOT TOO SURE.

IDK IF I ALREADY STARTED OFF WRONG. BUT I CAME HOME.AND GOT THE CLONES 1ST WITH NONE OF THE EQUIP READY BUT....

FOR MY SET-UP I WAS THINKIN A GROW BOX. SEING AS I HAVE PLYWOOD AT HAND.FOR 2 PLANTS I WAS THINKIN A 2X2X3.5'' TALL BOX

LiGHTS: GOING CFLS. PROB. 4 ON SPLITTERS. WAS TOLD TO GET 6000K BLUE SPRECTRUM.
SOIL: NEED SOME HELP. ALTHOUGH I WAS GANNA LOOK AROUND TO FIND SOME MIXTURES
NUTES: ALSO GANNA GO LOOK AROUND THESE GREAT FORUMS.

PICTURES WILL BE UP LATER

...but i would wait on a more seasoned grower to answer.

given your growing area 7sq' and needing @ 2,000+ lumens a square foot. you're looking at needing easily 14,000 lumens. so really it would take 16 of those lights to produce that.

...i could be wrong tho

have transplanted each clone to a 5gl.

have made a new box.
specic. about 3 ft long and 1.5ft foot wide. lenght is about 3.5-4 ft

will finish sealin the box. wrapin with foil...
i do i need to seal ....right?.. beacause the room is huge and fairly cold.\

from what i hear foil will cause hot spots and burn your plants. buy some white matte paint and apply to your box all around to reflect the light, or buy Mylar.
Good luck with the grow cant wait to see the yield with cfls :cheer:

^^ nah too hot. You dont want the ballast (the power portion) to be in a small closet when using an HID. The white paint is a great idea, use flat not the shiny finish stuff. You cut a bunch of drain holes in the buckets right? home depot has ph strips in the hot tub-pool-pond supply section that'll work, they arent ideal but much better than nothing. good luck on the grow
