Great Things in little Places; My Opinion of the Homegrown Hydroponics PC Grow Box
When I read in High Times that you can grow 3 plants in a computer tower case I claimed no way! But I put my foot in my mouth after giving the PC Grow Box a fair chance, and I’m definitely happy to be mistaken enormously.
Who says great things don’t come in small packages. To say I was a doubter the understatement of the year! My story starts around a year and a half gone when I moved away from home to take up my new residence at university. I have always had my fogeys blessing when it came to growing some medical plants for my private enjoyment at home. But now that I was away at school, and living alongside other folk, I needed a safe and clever alternative choice to grow my herbs. Clearly I only required enough for my good friends and I, so I commenced scouring the web looking for stealthy options to growing plants. Long and behold I stumbled upon the homegrown Hydroponics computer Grow Box after picking up a copy of the best of High Times at my local Barnes and Nobel.
The editors of this prestigious mag had done a review on a company called Homegrown Hydroponics that was producing a unit called the PC Grow Box. The PC Grow Box is basically a micro-grow hydroponuics system, which means you are growing a few plants close together in a small place. In this case you are growing plants hydroponically in what looks like a computer tower case. Perfect I thought! I could have 3 plants growing on my desk and as far as anyone from the outside is concerned , all they see is a computer tower like any other school student would have in their room. But mine had a concealed secret inside. Three terribly healthy tomato plants that no-one knew of excepting me.
Going into it, I was really doubtful. How is it feasible to grow plants in such a small place like a computer tower? There is not really that much room, and it might get quite hot in there with all those lights. Plus you have got to make room for your hydroponics system, and all of the gear that goes along with it. But to my constant surprise and amazement the men at Homegrown Hydroponics actually pulled it off! They were able to design a complete growing system where you can grow 3 plants simply in a computer tower case from start point to end point, all of the time not detracting from the decoration of your room, or attracting any unnecessary attention to my tomato plants. But how does it actually work you ask? Well my pals asked me the same thing when I told them what I was doing, and the answer is great!
The system is designed with a very powerful bulb to keep your plants short and dense. As it turns out you do not have to have a very tall plant to get a great yield. A short, dense plant will also provide fantastic yields if you train the plants correctly. And that is precisely what i did. I thoroughly fed my women the proper quantity of hydroponic nutrients, and they flourished inside my new PC PC Tower Case Grow Box! In a quarter I had started from seeds, flew through the vegetative state, and harvested an organic bounty that any hippy would be proud of! All while keeping it on the super down low, and need to know only basis.
I went into this venture as a doubter, thinking how can you most likely grow full size plants in a personal computer tower case? Well the answer is you can if you get a system designed as well as this one. The price was fair and the performance was out of this world. If any of you out there are like me and wish to grow your own medical herbs in a tiny or confined space, you may want to do as i did and have a look at the homegrown Hydroponics PC Grow Box. It works better than publicized, only lightened my wallet a little bit, and more than paid for itself after my first crop. Everything from now on is topping on the cake. To all you doubters out there, good things do come in little ummm boxes! Hydroponics is both fun and straightforward after you get the hang of it. There are masses of good blogs on the net deliberating growing strategies, and I might suggest growing your own rather than paying those insane street prices for herbs not half as good as the ones I grow at home. The best part is that I have lots of fresh produce coming in every few months, and produces enough to tie me, my girlfriend and all my poor college mates over for months at a time. Life at school is good thanks to my creativity and quick thinking. I like modern technology, and now so does my whole circle of friends! My good buddy Lars like the idea so much he tried to build his own. By the time he purchased all the tools he needed it ended up costing him 4 times what mind cost. Oh, and his came out totally screwed up and really doesn’t work to good at all. I really don’t reccomend building your own.
