ps. heres a 3d view, not accurate though since I put my water reservoirs left of the whole cab resulting in more space for the inhabitants
I See now. I should have known that you would have more foresight than that!
Very nice and tidy build though - i like the way you did that for the light it makes sense to put it right over an intake since even if you were to hang them vertical you couldnt put anything under it.Its like killing two birds with one stone- i will definitely incorporate this into my next build! because mine takes up some of the square footage on the floor( a 1 inch x 11inch slit). I can still put plants over it but i like your idea better. . very interested to see how the 1x 55 works out! From my experience 10G will be tough but i hope you can do it and i can blame my results on shitty gardening :P. Ive been running 2X55 vert and and could get around 10 in 3/4 liter( 2 liter trimmed down a little less than halfway) with soil. But I didn't have blu mats either so i like the change in variables here to compare. I Like growing with Vert Pll's too and it would be easy to make some nice small stealthy sog cabs if you could do it with 1 and pull 10 g a plant! Plants always get a ton of crispy fans where they touch but the plants really dont seem to care at all.
I moved on to LED now in my 11x11 cab and the density just blows pll out of the water, the rate of growth, aroma, resin production -everything. I was a huge LED skeptic - you can read about it in Trem0lo's pc thread..and now i am "spreading the gospel" lol
just a thought...55w plus a small fan... i wonder if you could power that off of solar..and with the blue mats..the energy free auto watered grow.
keep up the good work!
EDIT: Do you have a good 3d rendering of the bottom of the cab? interested to see how you louvered it for light trapping..hard to tell exactly from the picture.
