    Unhappy

    Okedoke, I was picturing like some clear sheet plastic from home depot, over a frame of some type: simple yet functional. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] back and sides stapled down, front stapled at top- 1 quarter of the way down. Then a few shelves... voala! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] My question is: Is this a good plan and what lighting would be needed? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Thanks!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Here is what I am using for a growth chamber at the moment. I will be making a 6'x3' chamber out of old glass windows later in the year to replace this.

    That is actually a indoor greenhouse kit from JoAnn Fabrics. I bought two to make it higher. If you have a JoAnns near you, they may still have some. They are $49.99, but are now 70% off making them $12.49 + tax. One can be made with some pvc pipe, some clear vinyl and a sewing machine.

    As for what is growing in the tub... Those are my green dragon vfts I ordered form this site. There are 9 growing in there now. With 4 common VFTs. I hope to be moving them to the back porch soon. I didn't want to put them outside right away. Since that picture, the grow lights have been moved inside the lower portion to allow more light overall.

    My next plans are to make a chamber out of several old windows I got from my aunt.

    I'm THERE man! My girlfriend goes to JoAnn Fabrics all the time for flower arranging stuff (I hate silk flowers-I like real plants she's the opposite) She never told me about those, I suppose I know why! She's afraid of coming home and the living room is finally just one giant growing chamber. I'm on my way to JA Fabrics tomorrow before she gets home from work... heh heh!

    and boy will she be mad! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I went to Lowes and bought 4' by 2' by 6' heavy duty shelves and covered the whole thing with plastic and put flourescent lights under the shelves a while back.
