One has showed me a sign and i posted pics in https://www.greenpas...__fromsearch__1
I have another question.... right now i have one 90 watt ufo led and two 100 watt 2700k CFL's for a total 0f 290 watts, And was wondering would it be a good to add two more CFL's one 100watt , and one 75 watt both 2700k to each side of the armoire lower down for a total of 465 watts (i think my math was right)

As long as you can keep them cool. The ballasts and bulbs, including the LED, put out heat, as long as you have the venting you can run the lights.

The plant always stretches first, about the first 1/4-1/3 of flowering is stretch. After it quits growing it will start seriously putting on the buds.

Great cabinet setup you've got there, Greekone! I love the use of space and all the colorful LED lighting and pretty much the whole thing. It's super stealth. Wishing you lots of good karma on this grow. Will be watching closely!!! -Scoob

how cool, that matches my filing cabinet and dresser. i love your design of stealth growing, what a great idea. My hat off to you for yet another ingenious grow box. The LEDs are perfect for that grow box. It makes me wanna go out and build one myself to add to my bedroom/office collection. Great job!!!!

Quick question.... I went outta town for just the day, and left the armoire
open to let good air circulate in the grow area planing to be back before
6pm (Lights in armoire off @ 6pm) to close doors, But got home @ 6:20....
Question is "Will the 20 mins of room light (not direct) hurt my babies?"
First time this happen, And i told my wife don't ask me to go anywhere
again...lol

LOL...don't even think about it...you could go an hour or two even and have no trouble. It gets dark gradually in nature too.
