garbage can grow box weed

At least for the trashcan grow I plan to only use auto flower. So it should be ok. I’ve seen people do well in this size, and even people do well in much smaller 5 gallon buckets.

Waste a hundred dollars on a cheap led only to find out it’s not enough to get through flower. What’s the point of that?

Got the trashcan brand new for only $10, so I think even if I invest in a decent light, I can keep the whole set up to $100-$200.

So you’re in LA and want to grow inside a trash can? I guess if the plant fails you don’t even have to do anything. Just push it to the curb.

This is my first grow, and I don’t want to invest the money in a grow tent yet, but if it goes well in the can, I will probably get a 2×4 tent next time and figured I could reuse the LED by getting a second one and putting 2 in the tent.

Is that still the best way to go? I was thinking if it will fit, possibly using a spider farmer or other similar LED that is designed for a 2×2 space. Is that too much for the space of a 32 gallon garbage can?

With that power source and light I wouldn't use it for flower, but great for veg. Very nice 🙂

The LED was cheap: $40 on Amazon. I want to see if I can actually flower in it. It’s only 35 W, but 35 W at 9 inches is equivalent to 240 W at 24.

So Ricky's pot garbage cans from tpb are a real thing

Yeah, more of an experiment really. I’m just interested to see what will happen under the low wattage. I’m hoping I’ll be able to use it to isolate plants when producing pollen or seed.

Nice, and good thinking.

I wanna follow this to see if it works

“Master of space bucketry.” I like the sound of that.

Ha ha, that’s awesome! Same can too. The only issue with hanging your light though, is that would decrease your vertical space significantly.
