pot growing set ups.
    #3331018 - 11/07/04 09:33 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

i was looking around on ebay and saw these grow chambers.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...ssPageName=WDVW
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...ssPageName=WDVW
i saw the price, and decided since i live 30 seconds from a home depot i would compare the costs to build my own. i estimate the cost to build one at $500. plus i wouldnt have to pay the $250 shipping. i read that plugging a ballast into a surge protector is a fire hazard.
i saw this other auction too for the bulbs and everything.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...ssPageName=WDVW
so i would plug the ballast straight into the wall right? i do not want to fuck with wiring or anything like that.
does anyone know to make one of those air filters. i have been searching around for plans to make them, but cant find any. could i buy them as well, and just hook them into the chamber?
i understand how to set up the rest, i just need help with the air filter (so i can get rid of smells).
is there a way to hide the heat output? i was going to have all the vents hooked up to a thermostat, so when it reached too high a temp it would go on auto and suck out the air, as it pulled in fresh air. would this be good to do, or just set the fans on a timer? i figured a thermostat was only 15 bucks, and it would save much electricity costs.
how many plants could i grow in a 23-25 cub. feet chamber? yes i plan on using a light set-up like the one on the link.
i am not very experienced with growing, and i figure to get a good start i will need a good setup, and hope all my research will pay off. i figure if i start with the hundreds of shwag seeds i have, i can practice first before buying expesinve seeds strains. i am not worried about electricity jumps either, cause i am moving to a friends house where i can save up to get a better place then i am in now.
when i move into the new place of my own i will already have the grow chamber ready to grow, and my electricity will be at that level from the start. also i do have a nice size herp collection, that requires heat lamps. i can blame the electricity consuption on the many obvious 100 watt heat lamps, heat pads, and mister systems. any help on the air filter would be great. i want to get rid of as much odor as possible. i think i am going to take my plans from what i can see in all the very detailed photos.

would it be a good setup for salvia too?

Is that big enough to grow 9 marijuana plants?

ebay is a bad place to be buying expensive systems, stick to your local hydro shop so you can always run back to them with problems. You might be able to cram 9 plants under a 400w but timing for when to flower would be a bitch and 6 plants would yield just as well.

Funny, I live in Canada and there are 5 hydro shops within 10 minutes of where I live.

i am not getting it online. i am getting all the same exact things at home depot, minus the light. i can build the same exact box using their very detailed pictures, and model my own box after their design. i do not know where to get that kind of lighting in a kit ready to go. not localy anyhow. 6 plants would be more then enough for me to grow. i would almost always have a constant supply in a case like that.
