Upgrade Setup Project
    #3327092 - 11/06/04 10:52 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

So here is a picture of my current setup in my basement:

Im going to clear the top part of that wooden plant holding device to create room for more plants on top (smaller ones) while the bottom will be used for the larger ones (mothers). So I spent 120$ and bought 2 light fixtures and one soft and one normal florescent light for each of them (and of course ground and plant pots etc etc which are not shown), Shown here:


That wil be the hardest part, there will be small additional upgrades and mods on the whole setup too.

So I'll keep you updated with pictures.

goodluck, i wish i had all that room but i'd probably end up broke because of all the money i'd put into it (though 2 1/2 months later everything would be good) :cool:

i'd move that thermometer (it is a thermometer right) from where it is to right behind it on the wall at or a little higher than the highest leaves then you know the temp your plants feel not the room temp.

You should check out junk stores Like old building supply places.. You could get 20 ballests for the price of one of those fixtures.. And then you could have way more lights crammed together, because in reality floros suck and the more the marrier

thats is true, but this is a small town, and we don't have one of those, but there only 12$ each or so, nothing real expensive.

You should hang those lights on chains, with floros you want to get them as close as possibe for fast growth. With salvia you should give them a few inches but most plants and cacti can be right upto the bulbs and even touching.

Another way to go is to get a mh or hps light. They are more efficient than floros by far.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

Yes, there isnt anything but HID that counts if you wanna grow greencrops..they are rather energy comsuming but it pays in the end.

peace..

Lookin real nice man....

You're fine with Floros, HID lighting on salvia is extremely unnecessary overkill...

Peace
