kewl epidermist! Came indoors myself a few years back after too many 5 gallon buckets to count.... it gets better! One thing is the size of the cab for 4 plants and a 1000.... heat will be something to overcome... We have an ongoing mentor project, our Scooby is building a cab with Tokecrazy as his mentor Here is a link... https://www.greenpas...ntor-adventure/ Size and training will be important, in the indoor grow, natural expression is not the thing to have, lots of reading for you to do about lollypopping or cleaning lower sections, LST and HST to control We can help, with a 1000 HPS,,, ventilation and heat control will be a priority. Also, I might suggest a grow tent.... they are quick and easy and will grow great med, lots of tent growers are here to assist if you see that as an option. Bless! Pete

Hi epidermist nice to meet you,I don't know what kind of system you want to use but I use a flood and drain in my box.It's very easy and very effective Just fill the rez with water and nutes plug in the timer and let them grow.It has to be the easiest of hydro systems I filter my tap water with a zero water pitcher(0 ppm's) add the nutes I don't even have to ph.So far i've had no problems at all,i'm just sayin in case you want to go a real easy way.But I do agree with Pete,KaK or Tokecrazy are the go to guys for hydro.

Hi Epidermist, Here is a link to the diy section on the home page.I would look through that.Has Pete said running 4 plants and a 1000 watter in a cab heat is gonna be a real issue.I would make sure to research that well.Here's the link:

you guys are great! so much help already. im really wanting to keep the 1000 watt hps, for yeild sake. id love to work around it and make everything tip top:) what would be recomended to get rid of all the heat? smell is also an issue i would like to take care of. i was hoping to have enough room to keep my mother plant and clones on top of the flowering room, would i still be able to do this, or would i have to move it to the side? i would love a mentor to take me under there wing is anyone would be willing ? i wont dissapoint. i think a flood and release is the way i want to go. im so on my toes about all of this. i love this community, feel right at home. also if im postin in the wrong area let me know, im new to any online community. dont even have a face book for christ sake. cheers to all of us that do what we do!!!

G'day epidermist :D hehehe welcome to GreenPassion. I would suggest you list you potential grow area, lights, method , and equipment needed...others can suggest wh@ might be needed and why...you will need an exhaust fan and filter of some kind...and a way to support them. plan on the res size and accessibility...and plan for the harvest also...you will need an area to dry the buds in nd containers for storage...glass jars being hands down the most popular method IMO :D hehehe muA
