northern lights yield

Northern lights yield

The plants in the grow box definitely smell at this point, but it only became noticeable to me within the last few weeks. Even now it’s not too bad, and you would have to be in the same room as them to smell it.

I’m really happy with how they turned out.
The dimensions of the box are 4’W x 2.5’D x 5’H.

Here’s a quick preview…
The grow box cost me about $135 for the lumber, screws, caulk, sandpaper, wood stain, and hinges.

I’ve got a pack of these pellets to start them in. I did a test run by putting a pellet in a cup of water, damn those things expand!

For my next grow I’ll have a real ventilation system set up and heat shouldn’t be a problem. I’ve been running my light at half power (200W) for the past couple weeks to control the heat. I’ll have much better ventilation my next grow so I’ll be able to run it at 400W the whole time.
