  • Anyone know of any good T-5 systems? I'm looking to get some more lights and don't want to spend 100+ dollars on something that will only grow 15 plants for the winter

    I didn't know they were more power efficient! I thought they just had a higher UV output per square meter!
    In that case, why would I use anything else:)))

    LED might have surpassed HPS recently but they cost a bundle. HPS is the most efficient otherwise, followed by MH.

    Thank you brother! I was always thinking fluorescent was better as far as power bill goes! I almost bought an MH last year for my indoor grow but the HPS performs so well I really had no use. I agree to start LED is expensive, also, from what I have heard from growers who use them is that they aren't that strong and have to be close. I can't even put the HPS close because the leaves will get fried. Hahah
    I have also heard it can cut some cost if you build your own LED pa...
    Does anyone have experience in Greenhouse, and "Chilli Room" Constructing?

    A green house... hahaha!!
    I am moving and don't know exactly what I will be working with.
    I was going to start looking at drafting up a rough design that could be edited to fit whatever yard the Army sticks me in:)
    I just wanted to know key things to add and things to look out for

    airflow is prolly the biggest thing to worry about, greenhouses get hot in the summer. Shade cloth might also be needed. If you want to use it through winter where it gets cold youll need a heater and a light to extend daylight hours. Shelves for smaller stuff. Must do is really a lot of small stuff.

    Gotcha, so in a sense... Similar to indoor growing? As far as airflow.
    I will definitely need a heated green house during the winter in Kansas haha
