@libertyordeath kind of kicked this thread off with the following post:
@farganne I used a simple 400 watt set up with the ballast and housing all in one peice set up in a closet. I could grow 9 plants at a time in a 3x3 grid with that amount of light. The ratio of lumens to sf is what you have to look at. I used a metal halide for vegative growth and high pressure sodium for flowering but I hear LEDs are the wave of the future (but much more expensive). Any larger of a set up and I would have had to contend with an actual air exchange system to address the heat from the lights but LEDs could allow you to grow more/bigger without having to deal with new problems that a bigger grow would foster. Depending on what you grow you may still have some issues not related to heat with a larger crop though.
The plant I was growing is one of the most sun loving plants on earth when it comes to how much light is required to produce fruit and the set up worked beautifully for several years. I'm not a big fan of hydroponics as I am not a fan of the nutrients needed to work that system so I cant comment there. I kept journals and documented the results from various organic methods though and could point you in the right direction although I dont know what resources I had here that are available to you in Korea. If you grow plants that require less sun that what I grew you can get by with a larger grow area for the same 400 watts. For extreme sun loving "tobacco" follow the 3' x 3' grow area mentioned above with one plant per square foot or 9 plants. For tomatoes you could probably extend that to 4' x 4'. For potatoes, lettuce and other plants that are sucessful with even less light you can likely go up to 6' x 6' with your grow area.
I think I paid around $300 for the whole set up originally and I would imagine you can spend less than that today. I always ended up spending more money on high grade organic fertilizers than I did on everything else put together but that was a central part of success with the plants I was growing.
Like I said its all about lumens per sf. Figure out what you want to grow and research what type of light (color) is required and how much light (lumens) then go from there. Some plants have been meticulously researched and have tons of information about proper lumens, intensity etc. Others are likely going to be more difficult to find info on. Good luck and let me know if you have any specific questions. This whole conversation is bringing a smile to my face thinking about all the good times I've spent alone in my bedroom closet with bright lights and pleasant odors.

I mentioned building an aquaponics system, which you didn't mention. That is, you have a fish tank, and the fish water feeds the plants, and the plants filter the water.
Read about aquaponics
Oh, and I have already shopped out 60-watt LED light fixtures.
libertyordeath May 22
@farganne I misread that and thought you were referring to hydroponics. My mistake. I was focused on a single type of plant at the time I started to grow indoors and it didnt seem like aquaponics was a good idea for that situation. I need to do more research into that. Checking link now.
FarganneFarganne May 22
Aquaponics is a real trip. So many designs with different results.
I won't search for the link right now, but I saw an article about a guy in NYC who grew a million pounds of food with it in the dead of winter.
Maybe that's an exaggeration, but I do remember seeing something like that.
Here's an interesting challenge. What is the best gravity siphon for such a system? I saw a vid of an Australian who made one out of pop bottles...

The CFL´s I mentioned in the newsfeed trough would be the ticket if you can find them. I have seen many different types of light - halide, mercury vapor, sodium, the whole 9 yards and NOTHING can touch a giant high color temperature (4200 or more) CFL. Those are dA bOmB
100 real watts INTO THE CFL, not 20 pretending to be 100 incandescent.

I've encountered this before but we didnt call it aquaponics. Its been several years since i did research in this field but thats simply a more complicated version of hydroponics whereby the nutrients are sourced from the fish/crabs/shrimp. From what I know about hydro I can suggest that aquaponics would defnitely lead to a more acceptable nutrient base from which to feed the plants but I would be worried about how to correct deficiencies in real time. The biggest draw back to hydro, from my perspective, is that the learning curve is tiny. Aquaponics is basically hydro but with an organic twist.
Think of it as swallowing a pill vs intraveinous drug use. With soil

For those who don't know, these things are factual but the government has had a campaign of disinformation for decades so that this subject still remains
as something to ignore. If you do any real in depth research, you'll find that the government has made deals with off world civilizations, Eisenhower was aware of this, so you need to read between the lines when he warned us of the Military/industrial complex. I know people are finally becoming aware of this especially the younger generation.

A Critical Threshold...
2. - A Critical Threshold
At some point during the last decade, public thinking on the subject reached an important threshold. No longer was it unsafe to publicly talk about the subject. Evidence for the existence of actual, living extraterrestrials is now discussed vigorously, both in print and in major broadcast venues. Prime-time documentaries and daytime talk shows discuss aliens and alien encounters regularly.
In the United States, for example, as part of a project run by Citizens for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI), nearly 600 former defense, intelligence and federal aviation officials testified on videotape about their experiences with UFOâs and, in some cases, live, in-the-flesh aliens. CSETI witnesses volunteered to testify before Congress in order to pressure the US government into disclosing its evidence for the existence of, and direct contact with, extraterrestrials.
As journalist Jim Marrs wrote in his book, Alien Agenda:
âoeMost telling is the established fact that the (US) government has denied the existence of UFOâs and any interest in the issue, while internal documents made public through the years show that a very real and serious interest hasâ"and continuesâ"to exist.â
Apollo astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell told journalist John Earls in 1978,
âoeMake no mistake, Roswell happened. Iâve seen secret files which show the government knew about it, but decided not to tell the public.â
CEOâs of top-ranking US corporations now make public admissions about the subject. In a recent book manuscript, a former CEO of IBM stated that the semiconductor industry is based upon technology that was reverse-engineered from recovered alien artifacts. In addition, Jack Schulman, former president and founder of the American Computer Corporation, maintained a web site for years on which he wrote that the âoetransfer capacitor,â a high-speed computer device made by his company, was modeled on plans given to him by an Army general who told Schulman they were based on recovered alien devices.
A few years ago, Joe Firmage, co-founder and part owner of US Web corporation, wrote that the computer industryâs debt to reverse-engineered alien technology is âoean open secretâ among Silicon Valley executives.
What do US media have to say about the subject? On March 18-19, 1995, Disney Executive Michael Eisner and Lucas Arts test-marketed a non-fiction TV special announcing that UFOâs are real, not fantasy. The program aired in five states: Connecticut, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and California. Featuring Disney CEO Michael Eisner, the documentary made the following assertions:
âoeMankind is in the midst of the most profound event in history: actual contact with intelligent life from other planets.â
And, âoeIntelligent life from distant galaxies is now attempting to make open contact with the human race, and tonight weâll show you the evidence.â
Times have clearly changed. On the childrenâs shelf at your local library are a variety of books about aliens, UFOâs, and the Roswell case. Unlike baby boomers, more recent generations have seen considerable evidence regarding UFOâs and aliens. As a result, they are more open-minded about such subjects.
The examples above provide but a glimpse of a larger body of evidence, some of which is listed in the bibliography at the end of this book. For those yet skeptical about human interaction with aliens, I can only suggest further reading. Sample the best videos and talk to friends about the subject. Test new information for scientific consistency. Readers will find that out of the many thousands of reports about alien encounters, thereâs widespread agreement about alien manner and character. People in disparate places report strikingly similar experiences, over and over again. Their descriptions of alien craft and technology agree with a growing number of government whistleblowers who say theyâve either seen or have worked on recovered alien technology in secret defense installations.
Given the quantity and quality of corroborating sources on the subject, even the most die-hard of skeptics must ask: why would men and women who worked in the White House, astronauts and other government officials, lie in a way that could only harm their careers if their stories werenât true? Scores of military officers have risked their pensions for speaking out on the subject. Few can expect material gain by doing so.
Unlike other reports, this book is not about UFOâs and secret military bases. It was written to provide a clear and detailed characterization of alien mind in its various forms. Based upon years of research and direct experience with human-alien interactions, the following chapters describe both the thinking, and the behavior of aliens who come from planets that vary in their

'Activated' Lugol's Solution, A Surprisingly Effective Virus Killer (Sep. 9, 2012)
Lugol's Iodine Solution in named after Jean Lugol, a 19th century Paris physician, who discovered that iodine crystals will dissolve much easier in water if mixed with two parts of potassium iodide. Dr. Hulda Clark tells you on page 559 of her Cure For All Disease book how to make a liter or quart (1 liter = 0.88 quart, close enough) of Lugol's iodine solution yourself by combining 44 grams (1.5 oz.) of granular iodine crystals with 88 grams (3 ozs.) granular potassium iodide in water and allowed to dissolve completely for 24 hours (shaken occasionally). Hulda recommends making your own Lugol's from scratch (or have your pharmacist make it) if you plan on ingesting it since commercial Luugol's will be contaminated with isopropyl alcohol or wood alcohol (used to clean the equipment) which is a big No No with Hulda (since the propyl alcohol is one solvent which encourages parasite proliferation in the body).
Placing one drop of Lugol's iodine solution daily on your skin is an easy way to absorb your daily need for iodine, which is essential for proper functioning of the thyroid gland and even for good digestion. Dry the Lugol's drop on your skin with a hair dryer so it won't stain your clothing.
Lugol's solution, all by itself, is a marvellous germ killer. It's the best thing to take if you have food poisoning (usually caused by Shigella). Six drops of Lugol's in a 1/2 glass of water will stop food poisoning symptoms very quickly. A newer idea that I just learned from a medical intutive friend who has given me many fabulous insights over the years, is to activate Lugol's solution in a manner similar to making MMS.
You can use any weak organic acid like vinegar, or lemon juicke, but I prefer to use 50% Citric Acid, added in equal amounts to Lugol's solution and let it sit 3 minutes (E.g.: 6 drops of Lugol's and 6 drop of 50% citric acid in a clean glass and allow to activate for 3 minutes). Then add about 4 ozs. of water and drink. My medical intuitive friend tells me that 'activating' Lugol's in this manner, will make it a much stronger anti-viral than just using Lugol's alone.
If you kinow the condition you are fighting is due to a virus, give this idea a try and see what kind of results you get. You might be plesantly surprised.

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Multi Grain Waffles
Makes 8 square waffles
click here for printable recipe
1 large egg (room temperature)
3 tbsp grapeseed (or other vegetable) oil
1 cup water
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup brown rice flour less 1 tbsp
1/3 cup white rice flour less 1 tbsp
3 â" 4 tbsp almond flour
3 tbsp potato starch
3 tbsp tapioca starch
1 tbsp flaxmeal
1 tbsp teff flour
1 tbsp coconut sugar (or other sweetener â" if you use agave, use less water)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp xanthan gum
1/8 tsp pectin
Preheat your waffle iron.
In a large bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together.
In a medium bowl, blend the dry ingredients together. Regarding the almond flour, start with 3 tbsp of it, adding the extra tablespoon as needed to thicken the batter. Add this mixture to the wet ingredients. Blend well.
Spray your waffle iron with vegetable spray. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into each waffle section on the griddle. Cook until done. Serve with maple syrup or fruit sauce (see recipe below).
As I pondered what to make for our small, intimate Fatherâs Day brunch, I found two small peaches and one pear sitting on my kitchen counter. They were beginning to shrivel and look pretty unappetizing. In the past, I mightâve tossed them onto the compost pile. Not today. I decided to look past their blemishes, peel them and make a delicious fruit sauce to ladle over my waffles. Wow! I had to stop myself from licking the plate.
For my gluten free fruit sauce recipe, I used coconut sugar. One of my new faves, it has a lower glycemic index than white sugar, is less processed, and often is a great stand-in for recipes that call for white sugar. I also used Tropical Traditions Gold Label Standard Virgin Coconut Oil instead of butter. Once thought to be very high in cholesterol, research indicates that coconut oil is much healthier than vegetable oil. It is rich in lauric acid, a nutrient that supports the bodyÃ¢â,¬â,,¢s immune system. And for those of us whose immune systems have been compromised due to Celiac Disease, Iâm all about doing whatever I can to support my immune system. Read more about coconut oil here.
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup mixed fruit (I used 2 small peeled peaches, 1 peeled pear, 1/2 peeled apple)
Combine the water, sugar, and coconut boil in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly to prevent it from burning. When the mixture turns thick and syrup-like, add the fruit. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another few minutes until the fruit begins to soften. "

So youâve purchased your first SLR system, welcome to a new world of photography. Youâve opened Pandoraâs Box to a huge range of versatility. One of the major factors that sets SLR cameras apart is their ability to change lenses. In part two of our series, weâll talk about the importance of lenses, third-party lenses, caring for your glass, and much more.
The Importance of Lenses
Iâve watched many new photographers go through a vicious cycle of upgrading camera bodies and seeing only moderate improvements in performance. The truth is that your money is far better spent investing in good lenses than continuously catching up to the newest camera bodies every year. I know that itâs tempting to jump for that new camera body with video recording or selective coloring, but money is best spent on building a lens kit.
Itâs true that cameras continue to grow in megapixel count and image sensor quality. However, if you donât have a good lens to project that image onto the sensor, the truth is that you are wasting the potential that your camera offers. Having worked for a number of professional photographers, itâs not uncommon for me to see kits that include the most expensive lenses on the last generationâs camera bodies.
Most importantly, glass is forever. If you are sticking with the same camera system, you probably donât have to worry about your lenses becoming incompatible or antiquated. (Just make sure that you donât fill your collection with crop factor lenses before jumping to a full frame camera.) Also, in my experience, I have bought lenses and sold them two years later for the same price or even a little higher. Buy used, and then sell again.
At half the cost of the modern day equivalent, my Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 lens has been a gem.
When should you purchase a new camera? The best answer that I can give you is âoenot as often as 90% of peopleâ. I know itâs hard to drop $1000 (or even $300!) on a piece of glass, but take it from someone who made that mistake: if you already have a digital SLR, get good lenses or nothing at all. Another simple answer is when your current one is broken beyond repair.
Third Party Lenses
In addition to the lenses that the maker of your camera offers, there are other companies that produce lenses for a variety of cameras. Tamron, Tokina, and Sigma produce lenses for SLRâs and are an intriguing prospect for a number of reasons.
Primarily, the allure of these lenses is the low cost. Third party lenses are almost always less expensive than their first party counterparts.
There are definitely some great third party lenses. In my experience, my Tokina 12-24mm lens has been excellent. Itâs not uncommon for many photographers to choose third party macro and ultrawide lenses because they may not want to spend âoefirst partyâ money on lenses that get used less often.
As a wedding photographer, I donât shoot wide angle perspectives very often, so the Tokina 12-24mm is an affordable choice for the times that I do.
In my experience, I have had mixed results with these lenses â" there are some great ones and some subpar ones. The best thing to do is spend some time Googling reviews for the specific lens and seeing what the results have been for others.
In addition to these budget third party lens, there are also some âoepremiumâ lens brands like Zeiss and VoigtlÃ€nder that seek to outperform the lenses of major manufacturers. Zeiss lenses are a great example of this. Priced at a premium, these lenses have a rabid following of dedicated fans. Although opinions on these lenses vary, most agree that the way that they render scenes is unique. A number of photographers assert that lenses such as these are more suited for the new era of high megapixel full frame sensors, such as the 5D Mark IIâs.
Zeiss manufacturers premium manual focus lenses that have a dedciated following.
Lens Maintenance & Cleaning
If youâve got great lenses and youâve been shooting with them a lot, youâve no doubt noticed that those lenses are starting to look worse than they did when you took them out of the box. More than likely, youâve accumulated your fair share of spots on the front element of the lens.
Fear not, for these spots are usually easily cleaned. There are a number of tools available to clean lenses with, but my typical tool is a microfiber cloth. It sits inside a small pouch and stays attached to my camera strap for convenience. Rubbing the front element of the lens in a circular motion usually takes most spots right off. I donât typically use any moisture or cleaning solution, although if you have anything sticky or crusty on the lens, it may be necessary. Above all, I wouldnât recommend products like Windex (yes, Iâve seen it done) on your precious lens.
An inexpensive microfiber cloth is perfect for cleaning a lens.
