  1. Thabks Psyclown, unfortunately I am in Durban, going to builders warehouse today to check for those u shaped aluminium bars, I have decided to run 3 x 3000k and 3 x 4000k samsung strips at 1050mA which should translate to approx 150w true power which I think will suffice for my 90cm x 50cm area, still unsure about the height though, perhaps 1.5m should be good enough....
  2. I guess passive might be the simpler option, I want to use those 144 Samsung lm561c boards, I'm not sure how much of heat they generate but I'm also planning to have a fan blowing air around the light towards a large rectangular air passage out of the box
  3. Yeah I watched the entire 6 video series ! Great information, how would you go about building heat sinks.....perhaps I was contemplating using a piece of metal off something like a car amplifier cover but that might look a bit too diy for my liking.
  4. I have been researching leds and I'm sold on the lm561c samsung strips, if they are the same diodes on a quantum board then 2 of those 144 led strips have an equivalent amount of diodes (288). I have checked rs components and DigiKey and they have good prices as well! Just looking for the perfect driver that could run 2 of those led strips which are rated at 46v each, want to have the option of adding in another 2 strips at a later stage without having to replace the driver, just having an issue to locate those heat sinks....

  5. The plan is to build in a rectangular duct on opposite ends of the box, one at the bottom left and one at the top right with 2 fans. Hopefully this will regulate the temp to a desirable level. I could build a cover to avoid the sun hitting the box directly Sent from my SM-N970F using Tapatalk
  6. I have seen them, awesome stuff! Sent from my SM-N970F using Tapatalk

  8. Will definitely give it a look, I love diy and know the bear minimum of electronics that will allow me not to blow my head off lol Sent from my SM-N970F using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the feedback guys, a grow tent would be ideal but impossible due to the fact that I'm planning to build the cabinet on a small open balcony, I can push the dimensions to 50cm x 100cm but that's the maximum I can go, I was thinking to do 3 plants in 12L pots to fill up that area nicely. I'm glad to hear that a 1M high cabinet will be enough which means that the height of the cabinet will not exceed the height of the balcony railing so it wont look too bulky. Will 2 x qb70 lights from growopz suffice for the entire grow? Sent from my SM-N970F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi guys, needed some advise, I want to start a small grow maybe 2-3 autos in a 30cm x 100cm grow cabinet. Not sure of what light to get that's around the 2k mark that will give my plants enough light. Seen the qb70 on growopz, was thinking that 2 of those might be enough, another option is to get the roleandro galaxyhydro 1000w off amazon which falls within my budget but I'm really not sure about these lights. Thanks for the help! Sent from my SM-N970F using Tapatalk
  11. Sorry to hear about your aunt Dave, I guess it's just the luck of the draw when it comes to having good health, I do vape as an alternative to cigarettes which I feel makes a massive difference when compared to cigarettes. Have to get me a good herb vaporizer after I save up enough for my indoor grow [emoji16] Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  12. I have been smoking everyday for about 2 years now, it's usually just 1 joint between the 2 of us in the evenings, lately I have been thinking if I am smoking too much coz I dont want this to become an issue when I become older. Are there any smokers out there whom have been smoking for years but are still healthy....idk Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  13. I really enjoy a good bong which is in my opinion the best high however, the good old fashioned joint still hits me the hardest, havent tried vaping tho....edibles are not my thing Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
  14. What amount would be considered safe as such Sent from my SM-N950F using Tapatalk
