    I like to grow most anything outdoors esp. food/fruit. Growing pot is a skill that might come in handy someday esp. where it's a dual-use skill lol. Plus you never know when friends are going to drop over. Anyway I just wanted to say hello.

    I'm in MA where it's now legal to grow so I won't have to go all stealth or anything. I've got a grow box under construction and a Hash Plant seedling that is doing fine.

    Hi thanks you guys. Yeah I'm looking for nice people, sometimes you get a forum populated with alligators lol so I'm looking for a place with a low troll:nice people ratio :chillpill:

    My setup is really amateurish so far, but I am on the right track, as there are other things I want to get started for outdoors besides MJ, so I do need a good indoor grow setup, maybe a couple of them, and the MJ growing is getting me going on growing lots of things. So like I was saying, MJ skills are dual use.

    I got some 1/8" plywood crap from HomeDepot to make a box, it's too small for pot actually, but will be good for flowers. It's 2 x 2 x 39" with 8, 6500K, 23W CFLs homemade fixture. I have yet to install the computer fans. I have CalMag, GH Flora Series, a PPM meter, pH meter, pH test strips, GH pH up/down, 3 gal pots, some rainwater...maybe a few more things. Enough to veg for a while and/or get a mother plant going.

    I like the price point of the 300W Viparspectra LEDs, but LEDs don't get a lot of respect. I know it will cost in yield, but I don't really have need to fret over that, plus I don't want to deal with the elec bill and space and heat issues with MH and HPS, and necessary fans and bulb changes. I may just chnage the bulbs in my fixture to 2700K CFLs for flowering just to see how they work, even though there are better lights available. I can always use the bulbs elsewhere in the house if the yeild/quality is really bad.

    So anyway my first growbox is 80-90% done and I'll post a pic soon.

    Any comments/suggestions/criticisms are welcome that's what I'm here for!

    Welcome my friend.
    I am a little concerned with how small your grow box is though. Dont think yur gonna like it in the long run. You will definitely have heat issues and height problems.

    Yeah so am I. I knew I'd make my first one wrong, but figured I needed a prototype, and besides, I'm not into it for any money or anything. I have space issues. Plus I needed to scope out how Puppy Love Lips goes along with growing pot in the house. Turns out she could care less and also we need to start food plants indoors, as we always have a less-than-optimal harvest due to our short season in MA.

    Plus I have to wire up some fans and get some experience with ventilation and heat etc. and find a good place where it's not in the way to set it up and leave it.
