Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been gearing up for indoor growing.
I got a 4 foot by 4 foot growing tent and set it up in the basement. Then I picked up the shelving and some 25 quart bins with covers. I drilled holes in the covers and fit in some 3 inch pods to hold the germinated seeds.
Here are some pictures:
This is the grow tent. You can also see one of the containers that will hold the 9 plants.
Here are some lettuce seeds, germinating in ph corrected distilled water. This is about 3 days in. I got distilled water and some ph adjustment liquids to make sure the PH was between 5.5 and 6.5.
Here’s looking into the grow tent with one T5 4-foot fluorescent light installed
The first shelf I got was 3 foot wide, but you can actually fit 4 foot shelves inside. Here’s a shot of the first tanks. This was taken on Jan 30 2018. I also got a second light for the second shelf.
This is a shot from Feb 14. There are 4 tanks and two grow lights now. The lettuce is doing the best, but the spinach isn’t too far behind.
This is from the 18th of February – some nice lettuce!
