Default Slim Jim

I recently acquired a bathroom closet with the inner dimensions of 69 cm height, 12,5 cm width and 28 cm depth. I plan to squeeze 61 W in cfls in there. I plan a vertical single plant scrog. Later on this may be a great prop, storage for bonsai moms, quarantaining cuttings or flower a male for pollination. Mostly it's for the challenge tho, so stay tuned.

Default That's Jim

Here the closet, I closed the holes at the back with ply, cut out of a cigar box.
And the Maple Leaf, that is going in there, before and after putting the screen on. I plan to veg her in my IKEA while I build the Jim. Hopefully it's a female. Well, I have others to fill that cab.

White foil goes inside, holes are drilled, one fan wired (only passive intake atm.). The holes are covered with filter mat for kitchen extractor hoods, sloppy wiring of a single hanging socket on a bracket, I'll use later for the 50 W. And finally the first testrun with a 30 W 4000 K cfl and three "Ghani in the Ethiopian Sun" seedlings, I just happened to have atm.

Default finished!


two sockets I collected from the trash mounted on brackets. 50 W on top, 11 W for the side. Maybe I have to add another fan on 24/7 for active intake. I start 10/14 on the Maple Leaf tomorrow to get her(?) soon sexed.

OK, the 50 Watter was a bit cocky and I decided to downsize it to 23 W, making a total of 34 W and 2400 LM. Still good 970 W/ square metre. After a little discussion with me missus we agreed, I'll use it as a drying chamber for my PC harvest in about two weeks giving me time to sex the ML inside. After that I'll stall it for future propagation use, drying, quarantaine or similar, as it was planned anyways.

I might even donate it to a friend as a christmas gift .

with 28 cm depth there's no way an Enviro will fit in there. besides it'll enerate too much heat. You can get more value for the money if you collect a couple of powerful cfls. It's even more stealthy. Have a look at tf1.
