I’m new to the board, new to growing in general, but learn by doing. And boy did I start doing. But first thank you to many of you that I have taken ideas from, and please feel free to let me know what you think of what I did so far.
I’m planning growing one to two plants at a time. I’m working in almost 3x4 (12sqft.) closet in my office. I work from home but host coworkers at times, that aren’t really 420 friendly, but I do IT work so having loud fans running in my office isn’t anything new. So I’m trying to be stealth on this grow stuff, and this is all a trail run right? The first time I do anything like it. All the fun of the first time.
I started by caulking all the corners, and then painted latex semi-gloss white all the surfaces. I need to go back as you will see, I ended up removing a shelf (little more caulk and paint, easy, once I find that caulk gun…).
Then I went all me on this
Installed a outlet in a convenient location (and I also installed that temp/humid remote sensor)
That is a “killawatt” electric meter plugged in. I plan on tracking all power use for the grow, just for fun.
Installed a 6 inch duct fan (on a VERY short duct)
I need to go back to store and get some great stuff to fill the gaps on the grow side, but I think its a good start.
Just about everything is ready for the seeds that should have left ILGM yesterday (or the day before, hard to remember when exactly I ordered now). Still waiting on a single 600watt led panel (I know I will likely go with a bigger panel if this goes well), and the 6 inch carbon filter which I hope brings the noise down a good bit. Right now it’s a good 90-95db running at full blast with no filter, and just that little restriction over the register.
P.S. hope my pictures make it
