I have been following along here (ilgm) for a few weeks now. Started working on this when I had 3 plants growing in pots outside and decided to move indoors. Little did I know this was going to be a journey…

This forced me the finish all the rest of the plans I had. First I used reflectix radiant wrapping the box. Any other areas used Mylar emergency blankets to cover the upper areas and under the hanging seed cabinet. Then cut a few inches off wire rack shelving leftover from a job and cut a plastic skid down for its pedestals.

Also configured my lighting. It seems like over kill but I’m going for around 550 real watts.
Can always dim my lights if needed.

Thanks bud I had no idea what I was getting into. Trying out these auto flowers right now will give photos a shot after the worst part of winter is over. 3 weeks of prep and I’m getting close to being happy with the grow room. There are so many little things to consider when building a room. A tent would have been insanely easy compared to this but it’s too cold for a tent in the Midwest.

Oh I am running the lights at 12/12 for the last photo I moved inside. Hoping to have that girl done by the time the autos flower.
