Has anyone here bought a grow box?

I was wondering if they are worth the money. I can only afford the Super Locker they have. I was just wondering if anyone has any different cases. I am looking for something that is self sufficient like the Locker. Just turn on and put nutrients as needed.

Thanks.

1. I considered one, but they are beyond my budget.

I have a balcony, and the growing season is long here. I'll get a nice crop.

4. Cool

We are going to be moving to a senior mobile home park, so growing outdoors might not work like it used too. Can't use "It's a Tomato plant" anymore. LOL! I have a prescription, but I'm sure the park rules probably don't allow growing MJ on their grounds.

5. You definitely need a grow box. If MMJ is not legal in your state you

need a very stealthy one. Snoopy neighbors and all, you know......

10. I'm in Ca and have a prescription

So it's legal and we are going to be moving to a senior park, so theft isn't really an issue. LOL! But they might not allow it there, so I do have to be somewhat stealthy.

11. Just get grow lights and have a setup in your spare room. Probably don't even need

a reflectorized tent. I have space limitations and cats so I can't grow inside, but the balcony is gonna have my 6 allowed plants next summer. I just have 2 this year because it was an experiment.

6. Grow autoflowering strains - they stay small and bloom quick.

They were bred for stealth.

9. I never heard of those

I will have to find out more. But I do have a friend who has old seeds from the 80's. I am just dying to see if they will work.

2. DIY is much more fun IMO.

And growing in a small cabinet sucks.

I'd probably buy a grow tent instead. They're much cheaper and customizable.

Spend your money on a high quality pH/TDS meter and ventilation.

3. I looked at tents too

But it just seemed the boxes had everything without putting up vent hosing, and doesn't take up much room. I just started looking into this today, and I still have homework to do. I watch videos on you tube to see other growers.

7. Also look into a coco drip/recirc system (instead of hydro) and a CMH light.

I'm giving you all the good tips.
