Usually above, at light level or higher, where the warm air accumulates. You're sure a small (but sure not pricy) Enviro will be enough?

definately i not, my height is the issue thats why ive chose to go for the envirolite. plus i only want 4 plants and im gonna train them alot so they fill a ScrOG grow, but i need the light to be very close in the final stages, i can see it before ive even started. and with me going for a good fan and filter for my small (less than 2 cubic meters) room, then i could probably get away with putting another enviro in there later on.

ill be going to my local growshop today to take some measurements so i can progress with this 1. ill keep you posted on how it gets on

peace out DIV

how about an installation of some shoplights? You surely can pull off a good harvest from them and keep the plants close. They're cheap and not suspicious as well. Maye bome from tf1 can help here?

If that is all you have to work with, go for it. Just ventilate it well.

mj sack that!!

hey, after doing a little more reading about, i found that 60 watts of cfl is not enough for what i want. and as the temps were already over 30C, we decided to start again. i think ive been a little cheeky tho, coz ive used desk fans for intake/extration.

so here is my new setup;
6" desk fan
5" desk fan
6 x 20w cfl = 120w

and as my grow space is (w)1ft4" x (d)1ft5" i think this should cover the watts/sqrft?!?!

looks much better now. I didn't think a fridge was that easy to setup.

Anyway. If you have the option: try to find a proper exhaust fan, like a rvk or ruck. Axial fans don't build up much pressure. You can get along with computer/bathroom fans, but if you have the space, try one. I have the smallest RUCK fan with appropriate filter here, collecting dust, because it's too big for my current situation. A fridge is kinda borderline but it should fit in nicely, so try an upgrade.
As soon as I've more space available I'll setup mine. And there'll be even less noise or scents then.
I'm currently thinking about a double server case grow, hps with additional cfls.
