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 Dangers Of Co2 Generators

Co2 is a necessity for the indoor grower. Claims have been made of 20% to 60% increase in growth rate and harvest. Plants that receive Co2 have more resistance to pest and disease. Most growers are growing in there home with grow rooms right next to the bedrooms or in there basements.

When you ad a Co2 tank the risk is minimal, raising your ppm to 150o, which is within human tolerance. When you add a Co2 generator you are now burning gas to produce the Co2 and a by product of this is Carbon Monoxide. In a sealed room these gasses can build up.

Homemade generators can be very dangrous. Using fumes from a water heater or furnace just seems dumb. So does using a propane heater or lantern. They produce Carbon Monoxide which can be lethal. It takes about 5 hours of fresh air to reduce the levels of carbon monoxide in your blood to 1/2.

In the winter people are at a higher risk of Carbon Monoxide poisning. Furnices are being used after a year of sitting idle. We are spending a lot more time inside. If you are using a Co2 generator make sure you have carbon monoxide detectors around the house(one on each level).

Everyone Thinks They Can Grow Medical Marijuana

Happy plants make happy people and happy people grow the best medicine.

So you think your ready to grow medical marijuana. Good for you.

If you have any background in gardening your plants will grow just fine.

But will they reach medical grade potency? That is up to you.

If your starting with good genetics, then your better off than most. Do you have the ideal environment to grow in?

Not everyone does, and that’s pretty important. A well thought out grow room can increase plant vigor and yield.

Controlling the humidity is important.

Without a properly sealed room humidity and other important aspects of growing like temperature and Co2 levels would be difficult to regulate.

With a proper grow room and a little bit of a green thumb you can say goodbye to buying meds forever.
