    I bet this has been posted a few times but having troubles finding it.

    Im just wondering about BC northrenlights grow box, just the Roommate because that’s all I need to please myself.

    Questions from users-
    Overall is it worth the price.
    are they power hogs.
    are the loud?
    and does carbon filter work?

    also if anyone has grow journals id like to see!

    I’ve got the Producer but I’ll answer your questions;

    Yes, it is worth the price. Yes, you can do it cheaper. I have minimal handyman skills and very limited time. This box was a great solution. My first harvest was 525 grams. I was paying $12/gram at my dispensary, now I’m paying them nothing.

    I don’t believe they are power hogs but I’m not really sure.

    I wouldn’t want to sleep in the same room as it but they aren’t loud. Mine is in a boiler room and I can barely hear it.

    Yes, carbon filters work.

    I also have a producer and I love it, the price seems a bit steep but it is worth it to not have to set it up yourself. Personally for my situation I would have bought the roommate without hydro would be the way to go. The room I have my producer has no windows and it is to hot to keep my res cool enough. I cant supplement air conditioning either. The producer is a bigger growing space than I need. I am sure u could pull 6-20oz every 2 months with it growing in soil/soilless or hydro

    the reason I edited this post is I would recommend buying the dryer with the roommate at the same time. I ordered my producer without one and ended up getting one later, keeps the smell down to minimum, unless u r legal or enjoy the smell
