Thanks to those who take the time to read and help me through these things… it’s somehow both easier and harder than I thought. Advanced appologies for the kebtgh; I don’t know how to ask much shorter. TL;DR at bottom.
I finally made sense of a lot of things; but then there’s always more. I can not figure out how to have a paced out grow without dumping cash. I can do this or that, couple hundred here or there, but I don’t have that money right now. Y’all have to help my keep it simple a bit. The two major issues I have, or maybe three, that are preventing me from having plants on two light cycles are light proofing my air ducts, and the conditions in my basement. Most winters, like now, it’s 35% humidity and 65*. There is not much I can do about either of those things until I can afford to wall off the area. I have a small amount of lumber, and some moving blankets. Not enough lumber to build frame sadly. They hang from the ceiling just fine, but leave a large gap under. Better than nothing?
Otherwise I foresee the cheapest option to be put up Panda film; although that is a bit of an expense still even. Panda film and stud wall is easily my first choice but out of budget. I also need to lightproof my flower tent, two 6” holes for the light fan. Two 6” holes for intake, and one 8” for exhaust. Currently there is just open intake and one 8” fan exhausting out the top of the tent. Taping off any pinholes or seams is cheap as a roll of aluminum tape. Airflow seems to be the expensive part of light proofing.
TL;DR I need to close off a 10’x9’x9’ and it needs to be done… let’s say under $100 USD. I have tools, I have fabrication skills. I do not have much cash. Or anyway of getting some anytime soon. I swear this damn virus is going to kill me even if I don’t get it.
