One 1000w Light

A grow room is not cheap and the cost of maintaining the system is a large monthly expense.1000w kit Lets look at the investment price for just one light.

One air-cooled hood (the fixture that holds the bulbs) can cost $250 at your local grow store. The ballast (provides the proper starting and operating electrical condition to power the lamp) can run $199 and up. 1000W light bulbs start at $69 and max out around $250. A mechanical timer will run you $10 to $20. A 6″ in-line fan (to cool the hood) will be about $100 and then the ducting, to carry cold air in and hot air out, will be about $20. So, if you were to walk in to the grow store and buy top quality equipment for just one light kit, it could cost up around $630 per light. With that said, most grow store’s offer this same kit with low end equipment for around $450 if you can catch a good sale (not including the in-line fan). If you shop online you can find all this equipment for $350.

inlinefanNow, if you have more than one light in a room or are growing in a small space than an A/C unit is going to be needed to keep the temperature under 80 degrees. Portable units are the best priced option for grow rooms. They start around $250 and go up from there. A split unit A/C  would be ideal but they start out around $1500.

Each 1000w light coa:cst about $40 a month to run. What they don’t tell you is the cost of running an inline fan and the A/C unit to keep the room cool from all the heat put out by the lamp/lamps.

A grower with 2-1000w h.p.s. (flower) and 1-1000w m.h. (veg) can expect a $300-450 a month power bill depending on the time of year and your normal usage.

The Mighty Mite


“O lord save us from the wrath of the vikings.” This was first said by a monk staring at the viking horde coming his way. I’m sure your plants feel the same way. It seems like the harder you try to terminate them the more entrenched they become. Lets start at the beginning. One or two of these little darlings found there way into your garden(mite heaven). Over joyed this soon to be mother starts to lay her eggs. Around 300 over the next three days. These eggs hatch and the first wave start to suck your plants dry. So lets say 200 hatch. 150 of them reach the point or reproducing. If half are female (75) and they lay around 300 eggs each thats  around 22,500 mites. You see the problem grows with each generation.

When you find them its usually to late. The best thing to do is stay calm, its not the end of the world. Check all the plants find out how infested they are. You have several options. First rinse the plants. For real, just put them in the shower if you have to. Send the mites right down the drain. Heavy rains are a part of nature, plants recover quick from the shower . Just be sure to place pots in a trash bag to keep them dry. Mighty Wash works best as a first line of defense. If you cant wipe them out with Mighty Wash. Oils would be the next step. Neem oil or Einstein oil works for a wile then the mites build up a resistance. Your plants will not like the oils. It’s very easy to burn/shock/kill your plants with them. Fogers don’t seem to work for me. Don’t Bug Me and Liquid Ladybug can be used up until the day of harvest, so they claim. I would not spray the day of harvest! I would not spray anything after 2 weeks into the 12/12 light cycle. The best thing to do is stay on a regiment. Spray every 4 days. Remember your plants wont like the spray so get the little buggers as soon as possible. Most people settle with controlling the problem, keeping there numbers down and just getting through till harvest. At first this seems to be the best answer. Each grow after that they will be harder to control.

You can also order predators like lady bugs. Don’t release them all at once. Put out a small pan of water for them. After they run out of mites to eat. they seem to disapear or die somewhere out of site.

If none of this works for you there is one more option a complete clean out of the grow-op. Spray every thing with a strong miteacide. Then come back after that drys and do a bleach spray. Wait 4 days and do it again just for good measure. Make sure you clean the whole building. Mites can hide on your clothes so do the laundry too. The key here is to clean/kill everything.
