1k lamp/hood/in-line fan - $300 (Helena)

condition: like new
1000 watt switchable Digital electronic ballast, runs at 100/75/50%, switchable between halide and hps, will include two near new lamps (one metal halide for veg & one high pressure sodium for flower)- only seen one seasons use. Easily 3-4 more seasons until I’d replace them. Proper heavy duty hood, wider than average by a lot- make sure you have room in your vehicle- accommodates 6” ducting.
Will include ~30ft of 6” aluminum ducting and a heavy duty 6” UL inline fan (perfect and necessary for this setup) . Ballast has a brand new power cord. The bulbs alone run $200. There’s a good analog timer around here I’ll include when I find it.

The arithmetic:
Between your setup cost, 300 for light, 30 for soil and plastic bag pots, 60 for beans, 40 for advanced nutrients fertilizers, the price of energy varies obviously but you can expect to “pay” about two ounces from your pound, figuratively of course. That’s $430 plus energy to yield $4k worth of flower.

We ought to meet in a friendly parking lot :)

This really isn’t a closet affair- the hood is extra-wide for excellent spread, but it’s possible if you go Ruderalis or keep them short.
Expect ~16” of space a minimum from your tops.
You’ll easily pull a pound from a 5x5x6 foot space of 6 healthy topped and trained plants (top at least 3 nodes, 3gal minimum containers)
