    Some of you have seen my grow room before, so you know I grow on racks, with lights mounted in the racks. Well, it struck me that I should just mount the lights on the ceiling and remove the top racks. I could provide more room that way, and the lights would all combine to make a bright room. I also decided to put mylar right on the walls. Check it out (this is my bad camera. Parents are borrowing the good one):







    And here's the latest N. boschiana. This species must be propagated and widely distributed.

    Amazing setup Capslock. Nice changes.

    I've always wanted to ask: How many watts total do you use to light that room? And is it all cool white light?

    Now be sure and have your camera ready to catch the faces of the cops when they finally do show up asking what is up with all that light pouring out the window LOL.

    Pyro I was thinking the same thing!!! With that room getting warm from the lights your going to be lighting up the cops infrared sensors on the Maryjane hunting choppers. You know they look for the heat of the lights. It shows up as a hot spot in the house. So when it happens don't be alarmed. LOL I would love to be there when it does just so I can laugh in their faces right along with you.

    Invasion of privacy if you ask me, but thats another thread. Very nice room you have there too!!!

    And no I am not wishing the cops do bust in thinking they found a MJ grow room. I just think it would be funny if they do and find nothing but a dedicated grower of nepenthes. Oh and one more thing. This is just me, but if they came to the door and asked to come in I would say "Nope". Just to see what they do. I know I am bad.

    Sexxxy N. boschiana! Cops never visited my house when I had 4 lights on upstairs and 4 downstairs, nor have they visited the greenhouse.

    Thanks guys! So far the plants are happy - I just have to figure out how much window to leave open and where to put fans with the new arrangement. I like to have a lot of air movement.

    LLeopardGgecko: Each t5 fixture is about 220 watts. There are three on the ceiling, and another lighting one of the lower shelves. The other lower shelves have regular old 4 tubes of fluorescents. I mix a warm tube with three cool white tubes on pretty much all the fixtures.

    Oh, and this is San Francisco. Nobody cares if you're growing MJ here. Hell, half the cops grow their own. Seriously, nobody cares here. (There was a pot store down the street for "medical patients" until it moved recently. With a neon sign!) I would never grow that, though, as that would take room away from growing neps!!!
