been using them over 10 years.
If you only want one plant ina little corner they are perfect.
Mine is in storage because i need new bulbs for it. I might get them soon I have a prized mom i would like to put in it.
Are you going to use the stock phototron formula ?
I use potting soil in mine- I was very careful how i watered them because there is no drainage. They work better with a pc fan in the top -to draw air out through the top ,, which brings cool air up from underneath, where the leaves need the carbon most. Better to grow an indica dom in a phototron, They make flowering and veg bulbs for the hanging fixture. I never tried those yet- Im going to get both when i order new flouro's for it.
And a lot of people talk real bad about phototrons, most of the people who do have never ran one right, or are interested in more commercial gains.
IMHO A phototron is cool for a hobby grower,, easy to stick in a corner and doesn't need a lot of space. You can get decent product fairly simple, for much cheaper than market value. Can't lose there.cheap on electric too.seems like it was about ten bucks a month to run on 18/6.
lemme know how the ww does in it eh.
hey i know a stu-padassho. Your brother maybe?

mine is a 2 also
the formula was 4 like hydro or coco choir i think.never used it myself.
id grow 3 to five at first- sex them and keep the branchiest female early, like 3 -5 weeks turn it to 12/12for sexing them.andjust keep the best- move the rest outside somewhere.

about that flourecent fixture you have though.
the bulbs themselves need to be between 2 &4 inches away.
to keep it about 2 inches away is best. but no closer.
they should perk up fine.
good luck hope it helps.

For $300.00 you could have bought a wardrobe (free-standing closet) or used an existing closet, provided ventilation, stuck a 400-watt HPS in there and grown a pound of phat sticky buds per crop.
I had a 'tron. It was my first indoor grow and the results were so poor (less than an ounce of light airy buds instead of dense nuggs) I gave up an indoor growing until a friend pointed me in the right direction.
I gave the 'tron away to a friend, he tried one crop with the same results.
This thing got passed around and last time I heard in was in the corner of someone's garage, gathering dust.
If you're serious about growing, get a REAL set-up.
If you willing to settle for low yield low-potency buds, a 'tron is fine.
P.S. I've heard that 'ton's are good for rooting clones.
