Your right but he's not talking about the law.  He means any prying eyes such as family or roommates.

okay the room is just for a sump pump it has to be at least 8 feet tall in there. where the picture is taken from, well its just a boxed off area of the basement with a magnetic panel that is just a little bigger than the whole cut out for it so it can have a cover which sticks to the wall to cover up this square hole.This room is no wider than this picture really and is not being occupied at all just when i go and check on my cakes, there is plenty of room to stick this tote behind that hole.

I'm starting to wonder if not your your setup would do better if you cracked the lid 90 degrees and kept it that way during the days and put it back on when you go to bed. There is not much air circulation in your room and I'm afraid the cakes will suffocate in there with the lid on. Wait for the opinion of more experienced growers!

Okay I am planning on drilling holes in the lid asap. Are you implying that even with drilled holes and as a real sgfc that it is still going to suffocate in there?

Yes, I'm afraid that even with a properly built SGFC the mycelium will suffer from the lack of air currents in the room. So in that case placing the long side of the lid across the short side of the bin will open up more at the top of the bin allowing for much more FAE. This will require that you keep a closer eye on the cakes to make sure they don't dry out. Mist as needed.

Okay, I obviously won't expect much yield this grow just because of lack of planning. When I do this again in the future it will be done a lot better. live and learn i guess. Will these guys still produce any fruit though? I'm so nervous about getting absolutely nothing. I at least wanted a few grams per cake per flush

I agree I wouldn't abort the grow.  Keep pushing on the best you can.

The more time and thought that goes into it the better the results. I feel if you half ass it then expect half ass results. If you're worried about FAE then build a proper FC and then you don't have to worry or try and skate by with a poorly built FC. Teks are written to be followed EXACTLY not to pick out the parts you like and go from there.

My advice is to get a rack, put it in the middle of the room, elevate your FC, drill all the holes the right way, get more perlite, and if you need a new tote go out and spend the $7 and 20 mins and build it right. They shouldn't suffocate in a SGFC if it's built right and has adequate room around it. You'll still get fruits so don't worry there, how much is anyone's guess.

Okay I'm not going to be able to get a brand new tote this grow, just for reasons if i explained id be here all day but anyway transportation is a bit of a problem right now. What I can do though, is drill the holes in the top like I said I would, I planned on moving it out from under there and more towards the middle of the room, obviously propped up on a rack if I can find one.

oh and I did add more perlite but if I add anymore then the cakes are going to be almost as tall as the bin itself then the lid wont fit on.

Put holes on the lid.  Make sure there's holes in the bottom and fan as much as possible in that tight space.  Good luck.

so you do advise to fan even with holes in the top? Pretty much that's how ive been doing it just without the holes on top which is going to make a big difference im sure

In that tight little space yes I would fan.

roger that, can do. I'm going to be honest though. this room is at least 3 times the size of the closet that i grew in last time and i got a significant yield then, but my tote was taller and I had a better light at that time.

Okay guys, here is an update. I have moved the tote from where it was and placed it on top of 4 mason jars (which i did a balance test to see if I would take one jar out if it would collapse and I am proud to say it did not so I know even if it doesn't look like it, it is safe how it is.) I finally drilled the holes in through the top and I fanned the chamber for the 4th time today. I misted it earlier on this morning about several hours ago and it still seems to be pretty damp all the cakes and verm are fairly moist still.

Here you are. the one in the back by itself has been in there the longest out of all. This is probably day 4 or 5 for it. The other 2 just got birthed 2 days ago.

I also hope that my lighting source will be fine. It's just a push on push off triple A operated led light. It's supposed to stick to things, it came with the kit. The sticky part has ran out and so I have just been putting the light in the tote in a corner turned on facing the cakes. I let them take in that light overnight while I sleep so I hope it is sufficient enough.
