    Timer for inline fan - can't find the right one

    Jeeesus Christ. All right, I guess I tried to complicate things for no reason (other than having no experience). Thanks!

    Timer for inline fan - can't find the right one

    According to most guides I should cycle air inside my cabinet every 1-3 minutes. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to find a timer that can do this. Almost ALL of them are either: digital with only 10 (!) programs per day OR analog with 15 minute intervals. The only one that allegedly can do...

    Contact relay switch with 250W HPS lamp and timer

    Thanks for the replies, guys. It seems that I simply used an outdated source of information as reference. I'm really glad I won't have to get another part for my setup and worry about frying anything!

    Contact relay switch with 250W HPS lamp and timer

    The thread I quoted is pretty old, so maybe I don't need a contact relay switch? I should've been more specific. I'm thinking of getting this one: https://lumatek-lighting.com/lumatek-250w-240v-digital-ballast/ I only want to use a single 250W lamp.

    Contact relay switch with 250W HPS lamp and timer

    I've read this: https://www.marijuanapassion.com/threads/growfaq-electrical-section.1965/ So the takeway is that I need a contact relay switch to avoid frying my lamp timer. Three questions: - do they all look like this (box with outlets and a plug)? - should I connect everything like...

    Cabinet: lowering lights + filter vs. lowering plants on shelf

    They can stay fixed at the top? I guess that makes sense. I'm just looking at lots of pictures, so it isn't that obvious to me.

    Cabinet: lowering lights + filter vs. lowering plants on shelf

    NOT having to lower the lights (with filter and fan) at all would be the whole point. I'm thinking of moving the POTS down as they grow.

    Cabinet: lowering lights + filter vs. lowering plants on shelf

    Just for the record - I have zero experience. I'm gathering info and making a checklist of parts I'll need. My growbox is a regular 21 x 34 x 77" wardrobe. It has those little holes for installing shelves at different heights. My idea is that I will install the lights + filter + fan + ducting...

    What seeds? Rookie, indoor stealth cabinet

    Does that mean I shouldn't worry so much about height? This is a completely random example, but Supernova can supposedly get as big as 78". Is this something that happens only when you do everything perfectly?

    What seeds? Rookie, indoor stealth cabinet

    I'm prepping a 21 x 34 x 77" cabinet with the usual "semi-pro" setup: - 250W MH (blue) and 250W HPS (yellow) bulbs + spares - 250W adjustable ballast - intake and exhaust (6" everything) - exhaust fan, carbon filter - air cooled reflector - small oscillating fan I *THINK* it should be enough...

    Small, stealthy cabinet - fitting parts inside, reflector types

    Filter -> fan -> light -> exhaust. Right? Another question about the growbox size: Would 32 x 20 x 71" (80 x 50 x 180cm) be enough for two average sized plants (3-4 feet), side by side? Or is the length (20") pushing it? From what I understand, I don't want sativas (too big) or autos (could...

    Small, stealthy cabinet - fitting parts inside, reflector types

    So, a big cabinet is a must. I see. I guess I can get something significantly bigger after all. Anyway, can anyone answer question nr.3 about the reflectors?

    Small, stealthy cabinet - fitting parts inside, reflector types

    So far all I have is a wood cabinet - 23" x 21" x 40" (58 x 52 x 100cm). White interior. The plan is pretty standard: - only 1 or 2 plants in fabric pots - one or two small oscillating fans (6" or 15cm) - 250W HPS 2100K 32000lm bulb - 250W dimmable ballast - air cooled reflector - exhaust fan...

    First time grower. Aiming for max concealment

    I own the apartment and nobody else has the keys. Can you tell me more about strains? Are there any that aren't too smelly? This is my main concern since noise and conspicuousness aren't that big of a deal.

    First time grower. Aiming for max concealment

    Sup. I'm completely new to growing and I'd like to ask for advice. I live in a big apartment and don't get many guests, but I want to be extra careful. I'm looking for a strain that's: - not too smelly (I want to use one or two carbon filters anyway) - this is very important - not too big (fits...
