build a stealth grow box

I would like to be able to grow clones and mother plants at the same time, so I wouldn’t have to grow from seed each time.

An automatic CO2 pump to keep levels at 1800 parts per million.

I need to be able to fit it through a regular size doorway please. (Like that of an apartment or bedroom)

I would need an exhaust fan unless I can use the carbon filter for that, plus an intake fan unless I can just use an ordinary portable fan.

I’m interested in a CO2 hook-up and device to add 1800 parts per million to the cabinet.

A reflective inside to help use all light sources.
Here is what I’m looking for:

  • If possible a switch board to set the light timer, CO2, and view the temperature too.
  • Also, I don’t know if it’s possible to make it hydro or soil, I’d prefer hydro, but maybe that’s asking to much for a beginner.

    I’m interested in a stealth grow cabinet, but bigger than a side table, maybe a dresser, locker or cabinet would work well!

    Hi Everyone, I'm very interested in growing and I'm new to it. Hopefully I can get some tips and help to build a stealth grow box or cabinet. Here is…

    Build a stealth grow box

    Important: The opening for your intake hole should be about twice the size of your exhaust hole.

    Sirius: This is a great point! In any enclosed grow area such as a tent or grow cabinet, it’s important to have a larger opening for intake than for exhaust. This will maximize the efficiency of your fan in addition to keeping it working for longer. Plus, this will keep tents from “bowing” in, reducing your grow space.
    We learned above that the cabinet is 24″ deep. Now this Cool Tube was 20″, hardly enough room to attach two 6″ flex ducts for ventilation without having to keep a door open.

    Use the following items to make a stealthy grow cabinet just like his:

    I built and installed 4″ x 10″ x 48″ wooden housing for the duct work for the exhaust of the Cool Tube (picture 3rd down). Next, three 6″ duct flanges into the back wall of the cabinet leading into the duct work spaced vertically 9″ apart.
    Now that my fan room was set up, I allowed the exhaust to escape upward into a carbon filter. I mounted the filter inside a Rubbermaid tote to make the whole setup more discrete.

    Momentarily discouraged, I quickly scrapped the idea of a dedicated room filled to the brim. I began with getting clear about my intentions; I wanted to inconspicuously and autonomously produce my medicine. This was a much more respectable and realistic goal, and one that I could embrace.
