My Pallet Grow

Discussion in 'Grow Diaries' started by bullfrog, Jan 24, 2019.

  1. Made a grow box out of some recycled pallets in a quick effort to rescue/re-veg wtc. Hoping it works as a poc as I'm building a larger one to house the seedlings later. Welcome all comments on the box and on whether or not it's worth it to re-veg.

    Nice grow box. Why don’t you start a grow diary?

  4. Really nice setup! I hope I get to build something that nice one day. Is the grid at the bottom also able to collect water? It looks awesome.

  5. Looks like a fan. Like the build but got to be 100% on anything electric. I see possible fire issue there. I know we don’t all have ideal starts
    we all start somewheres but I’d get the fan out from under there. Unless you are actually just using it as a table n not plugged in.

  6. That's what I thought too. It's a cool idea for airflow tho. But yes, it could be bad if water drips down on it or something

  7. Understandable. I've moved the seedling out, but the pot is in a pan as well. I've also place one over the fan motor itself since the photo and reading your concerns. I haven't sealed the back bottom portion and was thinking of installing 6" blower down there and getting rid of the box fan to gain more space.

    p.s. I thought I started a diary with my intro and that is why I posted this in DIY as just a bump for pallet builds since I hadn't seen any yet... guess I should've named it something else. oh well. This will be my diary then.

  8. Just an update! Leaves are coming in and thin pistols are still forming the at base of the nodes. The leave are 3 leafed fan leaves so I'm wondering what's next. The photo period has been 18/6 for the last four weeks. I was going to go full 24 but, being new with af's I've been told just to stick to the standard. I'm going to try and find a better camera than my phone and upload some pics. Again, I'm open to opinions.

    A plant that size will be very unruly during reveg. Better to go with couple of buds from the bottom ime. Other than that, looks nice. Reclaimed material, green as it gets, kudos.

  10. I think I agree as I had begun to think about that as I was getting rid of the box fan. She's going to want to sprawl a bit more than the space I have with this box and my larger box is not finished yet. When you say; "go with a couple buds from the bottom", do you mean to trim it down two nodes after I get for more leaves at that level?

    p.s. Read some threads about cobs and I'd have to agree there as well and I'm going to buy a couple strips for this other box.

    The red line is how tall it was when it started reveging a week or so ago. Thats what i mean by unruly. Reveging plants go crazy. The couple of bud suggestion actually involves cutting off anything above the bottom buds and then putting it into reveg. The shoots will go crazy and you’ll end up with an incredibly bushy plant either way.

  12. Right on, then it's what I was thinking too. I'm going to wait a week then give her a trim. Thanks for the tip.
