Sorry it took so long. Was dealing with the last of the harvest and removing all my Boveda packs cause @ruprecht has me freaked out on whether I should use them or not.

Anyway I am using 12 gallon tubs instead of 5 gallon buckets. Just easier to change the water. And they have a lower profile. Every inch is vital. This is what I use to change the water;

Here is my tent setup

I am using 300 GPH pumps...10 bucks each on Amazon. Each container has a pump and aerator. I just bought a 6 line manifold to control the airflow. My fan is a 4 inch adjustable and the tent is just a normal tent. I do regret not buying a tent with a view window. Everything combined I have about a 1000.00 dollars invested.

P.S. If you are going 6x6 I would recommend either 2 315W CMH setups or the 600 Watt. And you definitely want the lamps enclosed with the fan blowing through them because of the heat they give off.
They work well for controlling RH sir, which is the main concern I think. Terpene claim I doubt but have not had time to elaborate....

RE Boveda: Ok, not much of a scientific study. 2 jars with weed, one with a pack one without. Same strain in both. My points being:
-2 jars isn't enough to do any more than make marketing claims (if you get friendly results)
-terpene levels vary wildly even on the same plant, so 15% more in the Boveda jar means little
-margin of error in testing labs is about 20%, and some labs well, suck
Etc etc.

Maybe they don't absorb terpenes. However, no way they are stopping them from coming off (and escaping with every jar opening). What you smell when you crack it, is terpenes.
Been in the industry for 4 years and work every day with isolated terpenes and whole essential oils and associated formulating.

The Boveda packs ARE regulating your humidity though.

Sorry it took so long.
Don't worry about it. I don't own, I rent and while my landlord is pretty hip and all (he is Jamaican)...he would very much appreciate me holding off until New Years Day when it becomes 100% legal for me to do so. I usually get a bonus in January as well, so it would be a good time to shop for equipment. Will update as the time comes. Got to admit, looking at my room and looking at those pics...6x6 may be a little too ambitious. 4x4 seems like it would nestle into the corner of the room I have free nicely.

Thanks again!
