A question from a fellow grower:
So I have a few questions… and was hoping you could help. Me and a roommate are starting our first season indoors… well in general really. We have read alot of different things and have had alot of buddies that grow and we have learn some from them. So to start we did the wet paper towel in the bag germination process and we jus transported the seedling.Our set up is a little rough due to budget right now so we are running a 70 watt plant light with a reflecting lamp. It sits on a table and the lamp is suspended from the ceiling down to the plant about 5 inches from the top of the soil.
And my roommate thought it would be a good idea to put a grow box around it so he built one with three sides so one side was still open for access and then lined it with tin foil. Is that a smart thing to do??
And it gets a little to hot in the “grow box” says our temperature and humidity gauge. I know the plant does best around 75-76 degrees. And it’s getting up to 82 and with temperatures around the 80s and up your more likely to get spider mites. Or am I wrong??
How should we set up our room with what we have?? And what would you recommend we change or add keeping budget in mind??
