    A couple of PC case fans should work well for venting the unit. You can easily find the diagram for powering them with a wall-wart (cell phone charger and such). No idea on the filter. I don't use 'em.

    Here's a couple of tron grows all journaled up you might want to check out..

    Old Phototron Experiment

    thanks alot man. i already checked those journals also. lots of good ideas for my next grow. i added one extra cfl already at the top ive looked for the spiltter and havent found out yet. i want to find a four way or two two ways at least, and have 4 extra cfls at the top, 2 with cool, and 2 with warm. idk thought it sounded nice.

    Hello Weedy.I have an old tron like that,it's been good to me.I added 4 daylight cfl's to my tron by using splitters.100 watt equivalency bulbs.
    I could have done better but the stuff I produced with little effort was seriously nice.
    Look at my old phototron grow from my sig.
    Good luck,can't wait to see it.
    I must have posted this just as ya'll did.Lol.You can get those two way splitters from walmart or lowes or any hardware store.

    yeah i definitely read all they way through your old tron experiment. looked like it all came out nice. ok but heres my question for you, did you flush it at any time? or just use pure h2o at the end. oh and yeah im going today probably t get some two way splitters. do you think itd be better to run 4 cool bulbs for veg, and 4 daylight for flowering?

    either way the seeds are in the ground we shall see what happens.!!

    I had the soil directly in the box so no flushing,just straight h20 at the end.
    I like the daylights for the entire grow.

    ok so heres day 2. its been pretty warm in my closet so ive been using a PC fan sucking air out, and i have another slide propped up with a fan going until i mount a fan above. seems to be working good. this temp is a little warmer because we were in the box taking pics.. but anyways heres so pics of my babies so far.



















    i think they look good for only 2 days of being in the soil. I cant wait.

    With your soil directly in the box just be careful not to overwater.I would not water again until you can go 2to3 inches deep into the soil and it's dry.Or get a moisture meter.
