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!

Nice setup.
Just suggestions:
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?

RE: My indoor setup....

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?

RE: My indoor setup....

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.

Hardware stores, Home Depot, window curtain stores, Walmart, etc.

nice stquack. is that just taped on?

RE: My indoor setup....

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.

RE: My indoor setup....

if you have a local habitat for humanity or restore store you can get shades from them pretty cheap.


 o
RE: My indoor setup....

ok i'll look at Sears. how did you staple it to your GH? did you hook it to a board first or something?


 o
RE: My indoor setup....

hottielover14, I think you can either use a stapler or double-face adhesive tape. The roller is made of wood.
