I have a shop/shed that is 10' x 20'. I plan on building a fake wall at the end at 18' that gives me a 2' x 10' area(ceiling is around 7' at the walls and about 9' at the center. There is already a 1' sq. vent at the peak and I plan to cut inflowing air vents in the floor which will be cool air (florida heat). Sound good so far? O.K. My questions are these- I want to grow Three to Four plants starting out because I dont know how strong the smell will be outside because I have to vent the grow area right? I can get the exhaust about 12' in the air and my neighbors on all sides are old and at least 60 yards or more away and they think I am a lil angel. Did I mention I live with my mommy!!! She is cool but I will do my best to not let her know what is going on and she never goes in the shop. So can I grow 5 or 6, I'm sure the strength of the odor depends on the strain right? So my next question is can I use regular tube flouresent lights just to start the plants out or something like a 100w-150w heat lamp. I know that I need the Metal Halide lights for the veggie state and some "H.I._" something or another lights for the flowering process but if I can use F lights or 100w bulb, how long? when do I need to start using the Metal Halide lights? I do not have the money for the M.H. lights yet. How much are they? Where do I go? How many do I need? What is the fire risk? Could someone please hit me back up and let me know, maybe explain how they would lay it out working with what I am working with. I am really excited about starting but I want to do right and make it worth while. Besides my seeds are expensive little buggars!!!
