    Well guys, here it is.....my setup and grow info:D :D :D
    First of all, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who had patience with a NOOB and took the time to help out... it was not in vain

    GROW ROOM SETUP- My room is a closet located in the laundry room. It is 6ft x 4ft x 8ft high. I had to add outlets for power since there were none but that was no problem. I use a bucket warmer submerged in water to provide humidity and help regulate temperature. It is controlled with a light timer. It took some playing with to get the levels right ,but after i figured it out it was easy to adjust. I also have an old CO2 tank that i fill with dry ice and leak into the room but i have yet to use it since my plants started growing sooo fast.this was a spur -of-the moment idea so i made my grow tub out of ply wood i had here at the house and then coated it with liquid latex but i will be buying large rubbermaid tubs for next grow. I cut 3 5" holes on the bottom and covered them with some screen i tore off my window(lolol) and covered the screen with a butt load of MG perlite. My soil consist of a 6" layer of regular potting siol mixed heavily with perlite and an upper layer of MG 3 month feed potting mix that is 10" deep also mixed heavily with perlite for an over all depth of 16". Before I planted anything i watered really heavy and allowed to drain all day and planted 3 days later.

    LIGHTS AND VENITATION- I had a buch of old 4 lamp floro fixtures and decided to take them apart and mount them all to one board since i knew i would have to raise them every day(sometimes twice a day).The board holds 12 T12's.....6 40watt coolwhites and 6 40watt OTT-lights. The OTT-light is a bulb that claims to be a natural light supplement. I gotta say i really like em'. For ventilation, there just happened to be an air duct be hind the wall........so i cut a hole in it and glued a peanut can that i cut the bottom out of to the duct since i did'nt have any real duct tubing. I also found this little weather sensor that measures temp/humidity and records highs and lows for the day and sends it to this little display i keep in my bedroom.

    NOW FOR THE POT !!!

    Once i got the temp/humidity where i wanted it and felt that the soil had drained enough I planted 8 seeds.....bag seeds......but at least they were good bags. The seeds sprouted 4-5 days later and all i've had to do since then is water them.

    :D 2ND WEEK:D

    I decided to try to use perlite to reflect as mush light from the soil as possible. I also started a weekly foliar feed with FLORALICIOUS GROW.

    Wow nice job. I like the DIY approach thats awesome. I'm in the same boat attempting to get better equipment as and when I can. Keep doing what you are doing the plants look great. Only suggestion I could make is trying to get those bulbs as close as possible, even touching if you can without burning the plant.

    Saw your problem with humidity in Timmy's thread, went looking for stuff for ya. First at $60 is a small electric dehumidifier, which is really your best bet. You could set it up on a timer to only run occasionally.
    http://www.smarthome.com/32612.html
    They also make nonelectric ones that are linked from that page for like $20, they don't work as fast or hold as much water but may be good enough for your situation.
