hey y’all, not forsure if I got everything I am new of course. Wanna make sure I am on the right path. My little one doesn’t seem like it’s growing very much. I am only doing 1 plant in this tote. It’s staying hot to me. Do I have too many lights?? I have a hole in the top and in the bottom back of the tote keep in mind it’s vertical the tote.

I am confined to using this tote because I’m in a little space. I saw where someone did this and so I wanted to try it out due to I have nothing else guess I could have gotten a box… I only have one plant so u don’t think this tote will work all the way up to harvest? Am I wasting my time with this tote? She is looking good(I think) will send a pic later when I get home it’s just hot in there and was trying to figure out how to lower the temp. Have a temp gauge will get humidty gauge later. Right now she is in a solo cup!!! Thanks for the pot idea will check it out and thanks for ur help.

Seems like a 5, 7 or 10 gallon pot would take up far less space that a 30 gal tote? You can get a temp/rh gauge at Walmart for under $10.00
Keep updating and would like to see pics.
