Noobie here wants to grow something. Planned out a closet DWC system. This guy:
red arrows are 2.5" black plastic elbow air intakes. Interior painted with 3 coats of gloss outside paint. Dried out for a week in the garage.
the lights and controller board are from Supergreenlab. It looks like basically an 80W quantum board. I think its a little underpowered (compared to others in this board) but I cant buy another one right now plus they’re not available (board maker is in spain under lockdown) plus I see what other seem able to conjure out of lighbulbs ffs. I’ll get another when I can.
Interior dimension is ~5ft sq, 2.5x2ftX5f. The total plant height can be almost 4 ft currently.
4" inline fan [118CFM ](4 Inches, with Variable Speed Controller) and carbon filter.
this is the power/control board:
the control board programs lights, monitors temp/humidity and talks to my phone. So far on a dry run its pretty quiet and almost no light leaks . Some weather stripping for the doors and magnetic catches.
I project the water reservoir will hold ~30 liters (container has room for 50+), I have 2 identical boxes, one lid cut for one 6" post another I will cut for 2 pots. Air stone, air pump. RO filter.
I’ve a milwaukee ph/ec/tds meter. Planing a Lucas method type grow. I have GH Micro and Bloom, calmag and Hydroguard. Am I missing anything?
Yesterday I dropped 2 seeds of Bodhi Lavander Jack . Shells were cracked today, I transferred them to wet paper towel, once the root grows to about a cm, I’ll transfer to rockwool cube just soaked in distilled water.
Blessed be the little maker.
