First off, wazzup y’all. I’ve been researching everything for about a month and not asking any questions since google can be your best friend for finding anything. I took the plunge and ordered supplies for a small grow box 2’x1.5’x4’ tall. Already setup and just waiting on some GSC seeds to arrive.
I’ve built a 4 site dwc and top feed dripper in a 20”x16”x11.5” high tote. I’ve got a mars reflector 48 and the inside of the box lined with 6 mil Mylar. Two 92mm pc fans for the air supply and a 4” duct fan and carbon scrubber to handle the funk. My earlier intentions were to buy a smaller stealth cab but figured I had a plethora of 3/4” birch plywood so why not.
Now my thoughts are on going bigger and I haven’t even started growing yet lol. I was torn between the Mars hydro 300 and reflector 48 when I ultimately chose the reflector for my setup. I got paranoid (hence needing some smoke to chill) and burned all of boxes everything came in so I can’t send anything back now. So I’m thinking about the perpetual harvest and want an area to bloom while I’m begging the next round.
My question is, with a Mars reflector 48 already in hand which is supposedly good for a 2’x2’ area and I’m thinking about building a 2’x4’x6’ tall 2 chamber box, will a second reflector 48 be the best bet? I’m always changing my damn mind so I don’t know why I thought this was set in stone.
Basically, I feel like I should’ve picked a bigger light but I was trying to save on electric as I’m on disability and gotta make every cent count. Can’t afford to buy smoke anymore. Took a plunge and sold some personal belongings to get cash to get the supplies to start this.
