Question from a fellow grower:
I’m a newbie! I just got a 4’ T-5 (4’x4 tube) and have been tossing
around the idea of getting a tent, vs setting up a room I already
have. The tent would go into an area outside (it can get below
freezing here), and with the low temp of T-5, I think I’d have to
heat it as well. So, not sure the t-5 would be as cost effective in
The other space is about twice as big too. So my question is (thanks for reaching out... and thanks for the books... haven't read them yet, but will soon), if my walls are just a skeleton with some insulation, what should I put up for walls? I have mylar sheets, or foil... or some other kind of thing, regardless, what would you recommend as low cost? I think I'll put up plywood, but then what on top of that? Also, with that light (plus, I may get some other fluorescent grow light pig-tails too), how many plants would put off the best results? Eventually, I'll add another fixture like the one I have now - but until then, what would you say? And in this circumstance, which seed (from your site, or in general) would be best in dirt with good nutes? I like a good indica x sativa mix, usually.
