Questions from a fellow grower:
I’m getting into growing my own. I just started
growing a couple of plants in the garden, but I’m keen to build a grow
box to manage things (and security) a little easier. I leave in
Queensland Australia and the climate is also quite variable.
So far, I just have and old wooden cabinet (H
105cm, W 78cm, D 50cm), and before I start drilling holes on it, I
wanted to make sure that I had a good plan and know what are the best
specs in term of exhaust fans, lights, etc.
I would like to try and use thermostat managed
the exhaust fans (maybe two sets of them, to be more efficient in
managing temperature, and have some redundancy in case one fails).
What’s the common practice?
In terms of lighting, I read on your Grow bible
that HID lights are the best for veg and flowers stages. Any
recommendations on brands, size, number of lights for the growing area I
have (0.39 m2)? I guess I can fit 3-4 plants in there.
Also, what would be good strains to grow in a box?
