Going to use the 5 gallon kit in a window with supplementary light of 2, 32 watt cfls. This is my second grow; years ago I grew Lowryder #2. Will post pics as I take them.
I don’t have much expertise with the kit, but you won’t get much radiometric light energy through window in your home, and two 32 watt cfl’s won’t support much for plant canopy. They would be great to get started, but you will likely want more light later.
I’m also growing northern lights… This is mine at 5 weeks… I had a lol nitro overload but it’s all good now… good luck and happy growing…
Welcome to the community and you are in good hands with the Light Guru, @dbrn32.
I agree completely, just going to try it to see how it works.
