I realize I should've posted this here instead. :roll: :lol:

I have an idea for a cheater indoor setup from stuff from Amazon:

Shelves (just realized I spelled it wrong in the title), the 4-tier version: https://www.amazon.com/Greenhouse-Reinf ... B08R68HF7K
Grow lights, potentially get 2 8-packs: https://www.amazon.com/Barrina-Lights-S ... B07VD1884R
Bins, may not need these necessarily: https://www.amazon.com/Durable-Black-Pl ... B000E7MTUI

Cold air humidifier sits on top shelf, adding some more humidity. During the day keep the window open, at night close it to bump up humidity. I keep the apartment roughly 70-72 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 65 at night (look, colder air on your head when you sleep is good for you :lol: ). Also there's the thermometer and humidity gauage for like $11 buck: https://www.amazon.com/ThermoPro-TP50-D ... B01H1R0K68

Could potentially split 1 8-pack of lights into groups of 2 for the bottom of each shelf. Get some sort of mesh cover for the lights that will be for plants that don't like super direct light. I also have some grow lights like these that I can clip to the rungs of the top part of the shelves and dim them a little for those kinds of plants that like less intense light.

Thoughts?

For not much more money you can get smart hygrometers and monitor from an app on your phone.

This one requires a hub. I have a bluetooth version that is no longer available.

Could be used to automatically turn on-off humidifier or heat mat.

I got drosera and sarrs from them
