    LOL I've been plotting this since I joined GK in 2007. I am 13 days away from cutting my first almost-full harvest. So excited. I have yet to actually go through a full cycle at full capacity yet, but everything on deck is ready to swing.

    And I want to go further!

    Nice clean set up. What kind of electric set up you got? I would def have to have a sub panel set up. Love the onyx room. You def got a bunch of em, I thought it was a type'o error when you mentioned how many you were getting lol. But they work great, is that the cheese in the pic?

    JCIO, I ran four new 30 amp circuits into the room for the lights, and 2 other 3o amp circuits for fans, AC, etc. I didn't use a subpanel because the main panel is only 20 ft away and had plenty of space. I have half the room under LED, the other half under HPS. The LED tables have two Onyx Bloom units per 2X4 table. The HPS tables have two 600W lights in cool tubes over each table. I originally had more Onyx lights (2.5 per table) but backed off to a total of 12 for 6 tables. Just an expense issue. I also have a 1000W HPS light I might put into action over the LED tables for that extra bit of weight. I will know what the yield is off theLED in another few weeks. I will adjust lighting as necessary.

    Yep that's DNA Genetics Confidential Cheese. I grow it SOG, going for total weight rather than big cola. Growing more numerous smaller nuggs also helps in the mold department. I loose between 5-20% of each harvest to mold.

    i notice the tote, our old grow house had them for our flood tables, i was laughing when i seen your 20 gallon mark, cause i had those then it got to the point where i was just sticking my finger on the side of the ressy and when it touched it was 20 gallons...try that and let me know. it was the totes from lowes LOLOLOL

    damn killing it, what a long strange trip that must have been

    Thanks guys. I am super excited. I built it out to a certain capacity and now I'm finally filling it.

    Yeah Nip for me it's the simpler the better. Less stuff to clean the better. I do a lot of my gardening by finger feel. And BTW you taught me how to set this up. Thank you. :beerchug:

    Just wanted to stop in and say damn. I can only hope to put something like that together someday.

    Looks very nice SMC, but something you mentioned earlier bothers me. Are you running that all that stuff off of 30 A breakers directly? If so, please consider a sub panel. A 30 A breaker can flow enough current to fry commonly used power cords long before the breaker trips.

    Where I used to work, we had 30 A- 110V circuitry for interior building lighting. This was set up properly, with metal conduit and heavy wire feeding each group of about a dozen 175 MH fixtures on each breaker. Since these were MH bulbs operating in the cold, these lights were left on 24/7 as every time they were turned off, several would not relight without needing bulb replacement. (Power failures were fun.)

    Anyway, we had some people at work that thought it was cool to tap into the lighting circuit to power drop cords so they could have a place to plug in whatever new equipment that they were installing. It saved them a lot of work to do it that way. They proper way would have been to run conduit 150 feet back to the electrical panel room, pull properly sized wire and install a proper breaker, but that was too hard...

    On a couple of occasions, I got to observe what happens when a little water got into an outlet at the end of a drop cord. Basically, it turned the cord into a fuse that sizzled and burned all the way up to the ceiling, all while the breaker happily supplied 2000 watts to the lights. Another time, they plugged a $25K metal detector into this mess. It got a small amount of water into it and in spite of having fuses inside, it fried everything in its $5k control box.

    All it takes is once...
