Sorry for the late replies, been busy. In case you didn't see this other post I will put it here.

Getting ready to move these into the grow tent. Thought I would post a few pics. Sarracenia Oreophila. <br /><br />ImageImageImageImageImage<br />

Going to give this a shot. I have a couple of these totes stacked on one another. In the soil tote, I have about 25 drilled holes in the bottom. Lining the bottom under the soil is a weed cloth liner to keep the soil from sifting out through the holes.<br /><br />This will also help with moisture retention. I have 6 small flower pots turned upside down to support the soil tote. These pots are carved to allow water flow. I also have two pumps to circulate water in opposite directions. <br /><br />Airflow is accomplished in the Gorilla Grow Tent. I also have a custom made rainfall system that simulates weather and cloud cover inside of the tent. This is part of a much bigger initiative, I will get into that later haha. <br /><br />Image<br />

Hey there, I'm glad I saw this thread, I was about to buy some more T5s for a 30x24 grow chamber. If I were to get the Kessil H150, should I be getting the purple and the blue? Or just the purple? It looks so small, I'm surprised it covers such a large diameter
Oops edit: I guess it's the 380 that has the large diameter. So would a single 150 suffice or should I get more than one?

Get the H150 purple. If you want to PM me I may be able to get you a better deal.

Dematerialize, that light is a Chinese made led, they talk a big game and it may do just for basic lighting, but for that price you could just about get a Kessil H150 purple and have 20 times the quality of light.

Tish and sss,

I will do an unboxing as soon as I can. I also want to show at least one of my Gorilla grow tents.
