Hey all,

I just completed an indoor room that I will be using to prep some outdoor plants for this year.

This room looks pretty basic, but it was a ton of work. Started with running a separate breaker box, has one 220v outlet and two 110v outlets.

Next was the electromechanical timer for the 220v outlet. This was a bigger pain in the ass than I thought it would be since I'm not an electrician and the wiring to get this right was a little beyond me. What made this complicated was wiring in the 220v to the timer and then wiring in a switch in between the timer and the outlet/light. The timer will always be hot and run on whatever it is set to, but there is a switch in the room that can turn the outlet/light off if needed.

This is the closet, uses a vertical bare 330watt Ceramic Metal Halide Bulb, got it while it was heating up so the pic came out green :alien:

The electronics inside on the left side. From the left, the first is fan speed (either normal or hi speed, it was a feature of the Whisperquiet fan I got for the room), the second is to turn the fan on/off, the third is the 110v outlet, and the last is the 220v outlet/light switch. Stand alone temp/humidity sensor and there is a small room fan plugged in and the heat mat for the seedlings. The ballast is outside the room.

This is the top of the closet, the fan is used for bathrooms so it came with the nice grill LOL. It a Panasonic Whisperquiet and it really is barely audible even at the highest speed setting which pulls ~210 CFM and is way more than enough for my room. Installing the fan right was really challenging and involved sliding into some tiny crawlspace a bunch of times, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. It is designed to run 24x7 and the speed is adjustable with a toggle switch on the fan which sets 3 separate low/high CFM levels (low/med/high), and then you can wire up a switch that will control whether it is on low or high speed. The other fan is for room circulation and also doubles as the clamp that holds the light in place.

Here is a shot of the floor which I ended up tiling and that was a cool project. I wanted the floor to be water proof/resistant and had never actually laid tile before, but it was a lot easier than I thought and turned out great. You can see the air intake on the left and it pulls air from either a climate controlled room adjacent to this or straight from outside, depending on outdoor temp/humidity.

The room is really tall and not very wide. I designed it hoping that plants can be trained to grow along the walls if used for flowering sativas, but mostly it will be used for prepping outdoor plants. Going to use it to find some known females and then clone them for outdoors this year. Each one of those pots has 5 seeds in it, will break them out separately depending on what comes up. Actually I only had 4 SSH seeds so fingers on crossed on those...I have more of all the others so can replant if needed.

Wish me luck! I'm still a little miffed about my spot getting busted last year in the home stretch. Hoping this year can do better, have a solid spot to grow them outdoors so feeling good about it.

I bought the same watering can a few weeks ago at Canadian Tire! Fellow Canadian?

you may want to have a back up horizontal fixture and bulb so you have canopy penetration if indica phenotyps op up pop up. I very much like your tall chamber!

@Rza, so happy you got your cab up and running, I know it’s been in limbo for a hot minute. Very professional set up, well done.

I’m PUMPED for your outdoor season.

Your sweet cab is gonna fill up quick, I can’t wait.

Cheers old buddy, stay safe, have fun. Keep me posted!

Thanks for stopping by everyone. Not much to add just wanted to give a quick update. Had 18 come up:
5 Early Skunk Haze
5 Early Queen x Afg Haze
2 Spice
3 Mango Haze
3 Super Silver Haze

I am happy with this as the first 2 are the ones I am really targeting and expecting to do best around here with the least mold issues and finishing on time. The others might be a little tricky, SSH will probably finish without a problem, Spice might be cutting it, Mango Haze probably not but it could happen with the right pheno and weather. This is at 39N Latitude. Separated them all into their own pots and they have recovered and are doing nicely. Will be taking clones sometime in the next 2 weeks or so.

Hi all, clone update, not so bad if I may say so myself. Of the 18 I was able to clone 16, 2 of them were just too far behind and weren't ready to have one taken, they were SSH #3 and ESH #3. I had 100% success with the 16 clones I took. SSH #1 and #2 were the last to throw roots by a few days and I had pretty much written them off, but they pulled through in the end. Have taken clones of SSH #3 and ESH #3, but they haven't shown roots yet, they will be the last ones needed.

These are the originals, root bound and only getting water until I found out genders, might need to trim them up soon. The 2 SSH clones are in the front, they just got put in soil 3 days ago. The runt on the front right is a mystery, it came out of nowhere in one of the MH pots from reclaimed soil used to top dress so it could be any of them. Didn't want to toss it so giving it a shot at life.

14 clones in a holding pattern until they fill out the pots and get over the cloning process before we flower.

Thanks for the good vibes and take it easy.
