My new grow setup with cabinet and 48" T5 lamps www.htgsupply.com/viewproduct.asp should be here Tuesday, Nov 4th. I'm already thinking I should have gotten a taller, wider cabinet. It is only 48" tall and won't have much more head space than an AG Deluxe once ventilation, lights and grow media is added. Plus some of the nicer hydro setups are wider than 20". We'll see how it goes when it gets here. Maybe I can get this to pass aesthetics muster then slowly work my way to a taller one.
Does anyone have suggestions for media? I want to stay hydroponic or aeroponic and may just start by removing the light hoods from my two Deluxes and stick them in there. What do you think? Also, our largest local hydro store invented their own setup but it's a little spendy, I think I could make something similar lots cheaper... ahlgrows.com/hydroUG.html
