building meself a cab, A Journey...
    #7738174 - 12/09/07 10:36 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

So, I'm starting up my first real attempt at growing a marijuana plant.

I've done a few outdoor grows and kinda half-assed it but, now I'm more dedicated and ready to build.

So, I'm going to build a cab, and I will be posting the whole ordeal with pictures here.

Anyways, on to the question, I'm gonna build a hood kinda deal and line it with mylar, but how many watts of cfl do i need for decent budding?

I've just started the seedlings while i build my cab, but i have 2 18 inch plant fluorescent and a 100 watt cfl.

I was thinking 400 watts of cfl would be good, am i correct? Thanks guys, pics and such to come...

If you really want your plants to flourish you should try getting a 400 watt High Pressure Sodium light.. Your CPL may be good for vegging but not for flowering..

If I were you when I build my cab I would make sure its at least 4ftx4ftx6ft, you dont really need ventilation like as much as some people think, just get a few fans to keep the air flow going and if you dont want the sweet aroma in your house just buy a cheap carbon filter and put it in your grow room.. Also you want a HID (high intesity discharge) light which is made just for growing amazing plants, such as MH (metal halide) or HPS (high pressure sodium).

Another fact if your using nutes, 2 weeks before harvesting instead of feeding your babies flush your them out with pH balanced water to get rid of all the fertilizers..

PEACE

Yeah I had a shit ton of CFL's on my plants and they didn't do a damn thing until I threw a 400 watt MH on them and they've been growing like weeds ever since :grin:

Well, the plan is to build a carbon scrubber and run a squirrel cage type fan as an out put, Would i need to smell proof the intake also just incase?

Also, is it possible to find hps or mh at anyplace other than online or at a plant/hydro shop cuz the nearest one is a good 1 1/2 hours away and the owner is a little sketchy for my liking.

I'm willing to build if need be.

I'm still working on figuring out dimensions, the goal is to build a prebuilt box and modify it to my liking...

plus, how hot does a 400 watt hps get?

Thanks for the responses, i'll be sure to check out icmag

The carbon scrubber is a good idea and no your intake doesnt have to be smell proof.. You do need to make sure the grow area is light tight though because you dont want any light getting in messing up your cycles..

A 400 watt HPS gets moderately hot but if you have a few fans running across the tops of your plants.. 1 being intake and the other outake you and your plants should be fine..

The only places I really know where to get a HPS/MH are online, the local hydro store or lowes sells low watt HPS and MH but I dont know.. The best way to get one is online or a hydro store because they sell ballasts and systems made for growing..

Ok, well, The hps will probably be bought within the next few weeks, I'm gonna probably just buy one on ebay, it's not a bad 150 dollar investment.

Thanks for all the help

Pictures within the next few weeks

I haven't decided on strain, i'm thinking about ordering some lowryder#2 but i'm kinda sketched about ordering marijuana seeds.

I'd really like to take a trip up to canada and hit up a seed bank.

Or find someone who'd be willing to trade for spores/pedro cutting.

Any suggestions on strains or the easiest way to get seeds without landing in prison?

i have a few going from a decent bag i got a few weeks ago

If your cab is big enough and heat is a issue with that hps you could air-cool it with some ducting and CPU fans from radioshack

Lowryder is a good strain but only if you are trying to conceal for it only grows 1-2ft.. Really you can order online and not get caught.. Ive done it many times and I have a good site for you that I cant post so Ill pm you it..

If your really sketched about ordering seeds..
1)Use the name of the previous owner of your house
2)Use some bag seed.. Schwag seeds grow into beautiful Cannabis plants
3)You can drive all the way up to Canada like you said which is the most work.. which in turn might be worse then ordering online because you are crossing the border and bringing back something illegal which is a very big felony..
