Probably Due To Network Congestion

Grow-Light Corner… construction

Posted on: January 5, 2008

I recently got an Envirolite via Ebay so I could give my Chillies a bit of light that the British climate has lacked in 2007, so 2008 is going to be a bright year for chilli growing.

First off I had to shift a large pile of wood from a corner in the cellar and generally make it annoying having to walk around piles of stuff.
Then I hacked out an old shelf and re-plastered the walls where the shelf had been in-set, then back to the pile of wood i moved and really roughly started constructing a partition wall and ceiling framework.

Using some pretty dubious wooden paneling that was ripped out of the house because of previous numpty owners building stupid things from wooden panels! (Oh, the cat helped by climbing the ladder too) 🙂

Now comes the Envirolite and the wooden staging, I’ll be painting the inner wooden wall white tomorrow.

I’ve left an air gap at the top of the side wall and the staging has got 1″ gaps in it with enough room underneath it if I should need to put an electric heater in there for more warmth. A piece of White Banner (print media from work) Vinyl is to be used as a curtain to close the side opening and to reflect back all that lovely light, I’ll probably just staple this into place. I’ve made all this and only spent money on the Envirolite and the Timer-Plug 🙂
Here’s the Video of the complete thing with our bunch of scraggy looking over-wintered plants…
