    @SoOrbudal - Yeah, its a jungle of information out there regarding LED lights. I will have to do some experimentation I think. Yes, they will finish in there. Getting one more light to get a better spread later on.

    swegrow, that sounds like a very nice light, you should do good.
    You just want your whole canopy even, so your plants are all the same distance from your light.
    I've had to put books an such under mine, if they weren't all the same height, just so it wood be an even canopy.
    A good breeze always helps.
    Your gonna do fine.
    GoodLuck swegrow.

    Looking good from here with the platform. I'm not real up on the lighting what's new today will be improved next week things change so fast anymore. Are you going to grow them all in that space or move to a tent?

    Looking great, can you tell us more about your light? TLG I've never heard of, I've heard of HLG, Is yours the same kind?
    Does yours have a dimmer?
    Cant tell much about your picture, but one plant looks pretty close, to your light.
    Anyway, I'm sure you will do just fine,
    GoodLuck
    Ps, it would be nice if you could put your shorter plants on something, to get them all receiving the same amount of light. Fabric pots sure need to be off the floor, helps them to dry out quicker, and breathe better.

    Thanks! Check out https://www.todogrowled.com/gb/

    I had not heard anything about them before. I found a growstore just a 10 min drive away, got there and talked to the man. He swears by them, got me a good deal and so far I think its good, I dont have anything to compare with though =)

    Good point. I built a wooden platform to get them up a couple of inches and to allow the air to move better. You think thats enough?

    started a topic Grow diary

    Grow diary

    Putting up a journal here for discussion and to share knowledge! This is my first indoor grow.
    Modifies our small indoor closet to a growroom, its apx 150x100x230cm.

    I use a TGL 220 LED light, a 125mm carbon filter and 2 speed fan. Got a wallmounted fan and also a small usb fan situated between the pots to make sure there is circulation and no stale air down there. Probably overkill for now =)


    I got a very small ultrasonic humidifier (also usb) but need to get a proper one soon. Humidity is a bit low. Put in a radiator aswell for the cold winter days, not very good insulation in that space.



    Current grow is a bunch of autoflowers. (Dutch passion seeds, Critical orange punch, colorado cookies and brooklyn sunrise) Planted in solo cups 3-4 weeks ago, transplanted 4 of them to 3 gal fabrics 2 weeks ago and the remaining for a week ago. I use biobizz lightmix and I wont add any nutes in yet 1-2 weeks atleast.


    Last but not least, I hooked it all up to smartplugs and amazon alexa. Makes it possible to use my phone for timers etc (voice control too but thats not relevant haha). Found a very basic sensor for temp and humidity aswell that I will get soon.


    Hope you guys will follow this and I would love everyones input and ideas for further improvements and discussion =)


    (I know the ducting could be betterlooking but I was eager to get started when I got all my stuff)
