lux measurements are worth nothing. spend an extra $60 on a PPDF meter from amazon, this is the cheapest one. if you're gonna spend the next 4 months on these plants, it's worth being able to test that you're getting them the most PPFD possible.
What about this one.
don't buy that. that measures lux which is not helpful. you need a PAR or PPFD reader. the cheapest one is $60.
aim for as close to 1100 PPFD as you can evenly across your canopy.
Get light meter
Don't go above 1000 or below 500 and you're smooth sailing .
this is what i use and works just fine. this is the cheapest option that measures PAR/PPFD. lux meters are cheaper but you don't want lux measurements.
I def know UV is bad bad bad. I accidentally left a jar of curing bud on my kitchen table, where it received just a small amount of window light each day, for 6 or 7 days. It developed somewhat of that 'hay' smell, while the exact same bud in a dark place (also inside my house) smelled fantastic.
This is what prompted me to inquire about the red light possibly doing damage. I use this app Dark Light App It is a red screen with no ads-so there's no while l white light infiltrating your drying space.
I had to look up what Grove packs are. They look pretty fancy and seem to control humidity for you the same way as humidity packs.
This is what I use. They are two way, so they will absorb/give off humidity to keep it at the right amount.
Couple humidity packs in Mason jars is all I do. I keep a humidity monitor in one to make sure the humidity doesn't get too high or too low.

I can't say 100% for sure if your bags are the same or if using the humidity packs would make a difference. From my little bit of reading, I don't think the humidity packs would change anything.
The humidity packs are reusable BTW. They are not cheap but since they are two way and obsorb humidity, you can rehydrate them.
If you go on Amazon they have plant stands and drain trays of all sizes.

I would agree with this also, it looks like you need some drainage holes in here.
Get some holes on the sides at the bottom / new pots with drainage holes and then put them on some kind of overflow safe container to put that inside like this
This way when you water to overflow you wont be drowning the roots instead, which can cause root rot - if this happens your plants will look droopy and will not respond to watering anymore, and they will need to be closely monitored if they survive at all.
Olympus Tough TG-6 camera does everything stock, no special macro lens needed, I would suggest getting the flash diffuser but not necessary
back drop this is a little thin and not super wide , so either get two of em or make sure all the lights behind it are off
Not using any special lights, although i do want to get some, just LED lights I got that are my basement everyday lighting
