I have a dedicated grow area that is approximately 8’ x 4’ in my basement. I only use about 4’ x 4’ to grow. It is winter where I am so the temps in my basement are around 62-66. I have seedlings now in a humidity dome with a heat mat which is keeping the plants in optimal range.
As i get ready to transplant, I am looking at ways to only have to heat a portion of the room to save on cost until the plants are larger. Has anyone ever used a larger plastic storage bin to create a larger vegetative area?
I have extra PVC and was also thinking of building a temporary wall or structure area to help contain the heat better.
Any input or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Hps light or maybe cmh, the hps will make more heat though.
But many people in your situation use hps and cmh in cold basements, garages or storage sheds in winter and leds in summer… or even just a small heater pointed at an intake vent could help at lights off using a timer for it to come on when lights go off …
