OK just for shits I am throwing up a couple pics of my ultra expensive and custom made clone and bonsai box. Pretty self explanatory.
Wish I had done this last year.
I had two nice plants growing and for the first time I had a hermi so I culled it in week two of flower. Luckily the cuts I have and got one maybe two started looks OK for a first effort. Tonight I planted one in a 3.5 container to move up per the uber cool bonsai mom thread.
In a year or so I hope to have a few moms. This one is elmersglue. Next up is my first ever grow for a pheno hunt for gorillabubble.
I hung two Sunblaster T5 fixtures and have iPower tubes. Looks like I will only need 1 but I dont know for sure so I hung the extra for the backup. I used two Axial fans and the uber expensive Reynalds wrap for now. I dont see how mylar or panda film is needed for a spot like this. 34" wide 26" tall inside dimensions made from 1"x 12" board from box store with 3M spray adhesive for the aluminum foil. The front is the same material that is used on the back of furniture. Buy it by the sheet from box store. The back is 1/8 " and the front is 1/4". Hangs off of a screw in each corner at top. Not a perfect light seal but its in a closet so its OK. Grabbed a cheap set of handles to ease off and on of front cover. Running it on a timer 23/1.
The fans were about $17 each off ebay and the Axial brand are totally silent. Probably have another $20 in it for the 1"x12" and handles. Rest of the stuff I had laying around. Plus the cost of the T5 tubes. Already had the fixtures and hangers. Put the foil on the inside of the front hanging door as well. Used the last of the wifes kitchen roll of foil and had to take grief for a minute until she realized what it was for. Drilled and screwed the ends of the 1x12 and used some 1x4 scraps I had cut at 45 degree to reinforce corners. I ran two screws from the underside of the existing finished closet shelving to make sure it wont accidentally fall off.
No excuse to not have done this a long time ago.
This is starting to look like a sub hobby all its own.
Pretty plain and unobtrusive. Kind of.
Next to my small tent in a small closet. People have no clue.
And my first so far success. The other one is behind and will be kept for now as a back up until first one is established in a 5.5 square pot and doing well.
