So, we all gotta start somewhere, right?
I’ve seen lots of nice setups and people talk about having subpar lighting. But how about we compare to see who has the most “ghetto” grow.
Who isnt using a bought tent or anything like that. Or even better, who’s makeshifted everything and having great results still.
Strictly just for fun, from what you had setup in the past. Or even may still be using. Let’s see how ghetto some of our grows are with good results.
Running an hlg 65 v2 4000k and an hlg 135 rspec. Their hanging off a metal rope I bought.
I have 2 fans that are from Walmart no clip on oscillators or anything yet.
I have mylar I’m gonna put on the wall next grow. I have a reflective tarp that hangs down. And a window ac unit I’ll use if temps got too hot.
I’ll also hang the buds off the metal rope after a bath when I harvest.
Wouldn’t say ghetto but this was my starter set up. A 2x2 tent with a 132w (real watt) viparspectra and 3- 19w side lights. I wasn’t sure this was something I was going to continue so I didn’t dump a bunch of money up front. I believe the total start up cost was about $220, including seeds and soil. I ended up upgrading the light to an hlg 135 the day after this pic. Have bought 4 more 135’s since.
Well I started 3 years ago with two 300w mars hydro /true 140w burples, a clip on 6 inch fan, pots, timer and cord, seeds… About $ 220 and did 6 grows getting 2+ ounces per plant. I was happy but saw on this forum what hlg lightning improved everyone’s grows so I upgraded to two hlg 100 v2 3k, and bam doubled my yields!!! So happy, but still just lights and fan in a closet. I call it a simple grow… Here’s pics before, and now. Oh I forgot $300 for hlg upgrade
Is that even safe @Oldschool82? Lol.
Upgrade the lights to hlg 135 rspec and use the promo code dude.
177 and itll be well worth it and you’ll get way. Better results. And less stuff plugged in. I’m running 3 lights, 1 of which I dont need to ut I’m trying to add on the far side of my ladies.
@Oldschool82, test those 19w lights. Turn the switch off and make sure the lights go out all the way. I had some of those and almost screwed my whole crop. This is with the switch off. You can see one side stays dimly lit. That’s hermie fuel.
Yea, I have a roll of mylar that’s gonna go over the wall. I was just too lazy to put it up when I moved my plants over.
I have a double fan for windows on one side and a broken oscillating fan on the other side, but I’ll be getting a few clip on fans soon to change them out and have a little better airflow.
