Since these produce more light from the side(the long side as opposed to the plug and tip of the bulb), light coverage could be maximized by positioning them front to back. Some creativity was required to install the Cool Tube to keep my HPS bulb from becoming too hot.

Also, I installed a "Kill-a-Watt" device to monitor my electrical usage so I can easily calculate the total extra cost to my electricity bill each month.

Keeping a door open is not a viable option for the stealthy gardener like me! I decided to use some creativity.

Of course I wanted to filter the intake air to keep out dust, pet hair, pollen, mold and the like.
