I'm spending aprox £350 for my first wardrobe grow, I'll be growing 5 plants in soil and this is about as cheap as I could budget it with fans, filter lighting etc

Quick Question. The help so far has been useful. And ive found two or three great bargains online.

I have one question : I own a blacklite, which i bought last year just for ambient affect. its flourescent and is 20w and 24" long. could i use this? any thoughts?maybe buy a couple of others.they always have other uses if i ever decide to retire from growing. Just ive read on a couple of sites now, that they can be used.

Peace

You should use the part of the room that's 8ft high, it gives you more space to work with. Once you set up the light and extractor fan, you should be good to go.
 
A second fan to move the air around the grow room is a good idea, and an electric weather station to read temperature and humidity would also be worth getting.
 
After than, it's just a matter of experimenting until you perfect your growing technique.

I don't know what a contractor is exactly, but you need two fans on top of what's on this list - an extractor fan to remove stale air from the grow room and a normal fan to blow the air around inside the room. Otherwise, you have all the soil, pots and nutrients there to grow five plants..

That will work fine, they can be a bit noisy though, if you're a light sleeper and the grow room is near the bedroom...

One of these guys should be fairly quiet, I'd imagine... I use a bathroom fan myself, you get used to the noise.

The bathroom fan should be very easy to wire up, there's usually just two individual wires - live and neutral - which are attached inside the fan the same way as you'd wire a plug. Bathroom fans are often connected to the lightswitch, so they are usually designed for 220v-240v electrical systems. This means you can simply attach a plug to the other end of the wire and safely plug it straight into the mains.

    Hey Buddy,
Here's how I just germed 4 out of 4 White Rhino seeds:
Doubled or tripled paper towels top & bottom. Placed them into a square Tupperware, about 3 or 4 x 5 inches. Under the faucet, I dripped water over all of it getting it very damp all the way through, but not so that water is running around the bottom of the container. Pull back the top layers of paper towels and place seeds on the bottom layers. Lightly place top layers on top of seeds and, lightly, press towels around seeds, moulding around seeds. Seal lid, burp, and place on a heating pad set to low. This will aid in maintaining constant temperature of around 72-78 degrees. I did this and two of my Rhinos germed overnight.! By the end of the next day I had all four seeds germed. That was about a week ago and today, under constant 250HPS light, they stand about 3-4 inches high and very healthy. 3rd set of leaves sprouting as I speak. Hope this helps. Do what you want with it.
Good Luck and Happy Toking!
Nick
