here is my indoor setup
I have been having some excellent luck!!
Here is a link that might be useful: Indoor Setup
Looks nice! I always enjoy photos of light gardens. My room is so crowded (and messy!) I can't figure out how to get photos of it!
1. The "spot lights" are not very good. They are more floods then spots. You are losing a lot of light.
2. The amount of light seems marginal for what you are growing. You may want to consider installing a white (mirror mylar the best, if you can find it) pull-down roller window shade on the top shelve to roll down and reflect all the spilled light to the plants when you are not in the room.
how can you make a mylar pull down roller window shade?
buy a regular pull-down shade and replace the fabric with mirrow Mylar.
but how would I attach it to the sides of my GH?
It comes with two little brackets, which you will need to find a way of attaching them to wherever you want to mount the roller shade.
hm ok. where would be the best place to find a pull down shade?
Hardware stores, Home Depot, window curtain stores, Walmart, etc.
ok well i have looked but haven't seemed to really find one. do you use one?
All the home stores have them. I have the same kind of setup and when I added the reflex it made a big diffrence. things started to grow
oh really? can i see some pics? you have the same set up as fruitgrower?
I did last year when I was growing boxwood (buxus) Sorry I dont have any pictures but I do have pictures of my grow box. Thats lettuce.
nice stquack. is that just taped on?
Sears also has pull-down shades. You give them the measurements, they will make them for you.
No tape just staples. I bought a 25ft x 16"roll for $12 at the big box store. It works good and its really hard to rip.
if you have a local habitat for humanity or restore store you can get shades from them pretty cheap.
ok i'll look at Sears. how did you staple it to your GH? did you hook it to a board first or something?
hottielover14, I think you can either use a stapler or double-face adhesive tape. The roller is made of wood.
ok thanks dcarch. here is my indoor set up but im going to get a 125W CF in that refector and im going to get another one for the other side. SO far I have a Cav. Banana, Vanilla, Black Pepper, Orchid and soon to be Miracle Berry Tree. I can't afford and dont have room now for MH or anything. What do you guys think of my set up?
