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: ... B08R68HF7K
Grow lights, potentially get 2 8-packs: ... B07VD1884R
Bins, may not need these necessarily: ... 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: ... 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.

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.
