*The area where the plants are growing in these pics, has now been covered with tin foil. Cant wait to see how this turns out:ganja:

I have the same light!!! What are you doing for the ballast's heat issues? I placed mine inside a milk crate and placed a fan on top of it, silent and effective. boy does that ballast run hot... I believe it even says so on the side of the ballast.

Im thinkin you could use a smaller light while they are so small if you wanna save electricity/bulb or ballast life.

Hmm. Well Id DOES get very hot in there, which is why I have one fan on my plants, and one on the side of the ballast to keep shit cool.

It was funny actually. Yesterday after I blazed I went in there to check on my plants and what not. Then I noticed how amazing to temperature was. I could sit in there and it would feel like I was at the beach with the perfect wind. Again, maybe I was just to high.:biggrin:

speaking of which looks about that time to wake and bake:gethigh:
