So, I am a big diy-er and I like to keep things as efficient as I can. I have been debating with myself on indoor vs outdoor growing while I do other research on growing cannabis. I've never grown it before, but I do have a bit of a green thumb. At the moment I have a large back deck on my house that is covered, and I never use it for anything, so it could be an interesting quasi outdoor growing space. Its out of view of all the neighbors and I live in the middle of nowhere a bit so theres no chance of a random passerby coming to check things out. The problem though is being covered it only gets sunlight for a few hours in the morning, which is not enough. The next natural thought of course is investing in grow lights, but those are expensive and I really dont want to spend that kind of money right now. My next thought comes from an idea that goes back thousands of years - moving light instead of generating it. The right kind of mirror would do the trick. I am also considering parabolic reflectors to concentrate light and a series of lenses and mirrors to move it where its needed and then diffusers to not set things on fire. I have also looked into plano convex lenses to focus light into a fiber optic cable where it gets paired with a diffuser of some kind and maybe a reflector to properly illuminate the area. I am curious to know if anyone else has done what I am thinking about - moving light. How they did it, how well it worked, how much it cost to setup. Any other thoughts on the matter are welcome as well.
