Updated Posting:
Due to the overflow of plants, I've been documenting all sorts of various grow projects in this thread.
Many of my other threads have been condensed into this thread too.
Happy Growing!

Original Posting:
Currently I've got roughly 12 plants growing in my cinder block / wood grow station. There are 3 levels, the bottom two for emersed growth and a 50 gallon on top for phase 2 (what's phase 2? I don't know). The plants are growing in plastic bins with 80% peat soil and 20% humidity control fertilized soil. For lighting, I've got 3 light strips, each contains 2x T8 light bulbs (4 foot long) 6500k. Plants are watered daily and an box fan blows air on the plants at set times throughout the day.
