Looks a little like a mad scientist's room to me. And I mean that in a good way.

Thanks. It was the most flexible and inexpensive system I could come up with. You can get the lights anywhere (walmart, lowes, etc]. They're Balco 10.5" brooder lights. I got the brooder lights because they're made more heavy duty than the regular "work" lights.

I've been pretty impressed with each plant popping a new leaf about every week since I had them under this system. Better than I thought.

Welp, my naners made it through winter hibernating in the basement for a jump start this year. The setup worked perfectly and they all seem happy. I'll be tilling up a few new sections in the yard for veggies and bananas tonight so they'll be in the ground soon!

Thanks for all the help Ty!

Tall Namwah




Tall Orinoco




Manzano

Your very welcome!

Your plants don't have a spot or blemish on them! For first day coming out of the basement pictures that is the best I have seen! Most plants look horrible after all winter indoors. Get those in the ground and they will go nuts!

Awesome job with the winter setup. They have grown a lot over winter! Best out of the basement pictures ever!

Smile Re: Winter Hibernating Setup

Sweet.....awesome results. Plants when small are easy to manage under lights.
Those plants look nice.

Cool facts to ponder in the fall...your plants will have a 5x+ footprint this fall in your basement .
Currently you did a 75 sq. grow footprint..5x plus this fall.
Your plants will have fantastic growth this summer

Plan ahead...shorten the chains and raise the roof
