The special lights needed to promote flowering and fruiting of your plants (HID lamps) put out a lot of heat. Now you might think that putting them in an enclosed cabinet with your plants would just "cook" them. But that is not so.

The temp inside the box stays in the optimum growing range for warm season plants like tomatoes, peppers, beans, cucumbers and medical herbs. Oh heck! I don’t know why I am rattling on when I can just show you my video:
Read on and I will tell you more about my great little closet hydroponics grow box, the simple yet prolific bubbler unit, and how you can easily create this system for yourself with common household items and easily obtained supplies.
Put together a simple but wildly prolific hydro bubbler system! The hydro bubbler is kinda like a cross between top drip and deep water culture.
First you’re going to buy a ready made wooden box (a pre-fab storage cabinet). We tell you which one and where to buy it; it costs about $95. You could also use a different brand but similar cabinet. Then:

Create a secret garden, a space in your home to grow plants that nobody will know about. To the outside world, you are an ordinary neighbor. But when the… Read more…
