Plant Killers

Common insects that hurt and may kill your indoor plants as well as outdoors are thrips, mites, whiteflies, fungus gnats, budworms, and caterpillars. Mites are mostly seen in indoor grow rooms. While outdoor growers generally find that leaf-eating insects like caterpillars and budworms are their most threatening insect pests. Mites are tiny, mobile, and vicious. They travel from grow room to grow room . From the bodies and clothes of people who have come in contact with mites or were in other grow rooms. Mites live in nature as well as on dogs. Approximately 65% of indoor grow rooms are infected with mites. Mites puncture leaves and feed on plant juices. Thrips Thrips are larger than Spider Mites with a more linear body shape.

SuperCloset Products

When I was shopping around for my first grow box I spend hours surfing the internet looking at different companies, different custom builds, and reading the forums for advice. I quickly realized I did not have the time or patience to build my own indoor grow box. After deciding to purchase a complete indoor grow system I focus more on what people were saying on each company and their products. I became very familiar with how to search all the online forums to find the opinion of others. However most of those searches were useless. People either were very happy with a limited response to why and others were extremely unhappy with limited reasons why. So I went with my gut, and picked Supercloset. I picked supercloset because there Ads just followed me for weeks while I was shopping, keeping them fresh in my mind. Then next major reason was that for the price I was paying I felt like...

SuperBox

My next purchase after the SuperLocker was the SuperBox. The SuperBox was a quick fix to the limited space in the germination chamber of the Superlocker. However the SuperBox has more draw backs than I expected. Here is what I found when operation my SuperBox.  The Box is a good size to fit basically anywhere which is what convinced me to drop the $800 bucks. However I would never recommend this box as a seed to harvest setup. In fact it makes for a better germination / clone chamber than even a vegetation chamber. With its short height I can get two plants in a 3 gallon plastic pot to grow to about 8-12inch in size before I have to move them over to my Superlocker. Keep in mind I do a lot of topping on my plants to help create more flowering spots, this would be a must to get your plants to a good height before starting to flower...

SuperLocker

My first purchase was a Supercloset Locker, this purchase made the most sense based on the size, price and interior grow height. Although I wasn’t new to growing indoors when I made my first indoor box purchase. I was new to buying a turn key set up and learning how to modify my grow according to the box. When I was living in my last house I was able to build a dedicated attic grow room. This is where I learned about ventilation, lighting, pot sizes, soil recipes and much, much more. However as life changes so must your hobbies, which led me to make my SuperLocker purchase.  The Superlocker was a small but tall compact complete system that would fit perfectly in a closet underneath my stair case. I grew for one year, about 3 full cycles, in the stock Superlocker setup. I was using the 5 gallons pots that were provided. The 300 Watt KIND LED light and the...
