build stealth grow box

I don’t want there to be any smells at all. So I guess a carbon filter would work well.

I’d want to have the proper lights needed.

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

If possible a timer for lights would be good, so I can set it for 18-24 hours or 12/12 just in-case I forget or I’m away.

  • 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.

    A reflective inside to help use all light sources.

    I assume I’d need a PH tool to measure the soil and water and any other tools needed.

    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.

      I want to produce at least 8-16+ ounces or more of dried herbs per yield. (So I think I’d need about 9 plants+)

    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…

    “1st time grower. Plants are 1 month old, and 12″ tall now. Set up for less than $250. Used cab.w/4 bulb, 24″ T5’s, 4″ elec exhaust, Thanx for great info.”
    The first thing to deal with was the Intake and exhaust – a clean environment and fresh air for my plants.

    On Craigslist I found a cabinet kit still in the box for only $35. It came in at 24″ L x 30″ W x 70″ H. Next, I purchased a 6″ inline fan for another $100. The fan combined with a 400 watt light and Cool Tube from a previous grow gave me something to design around.
    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.
    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.
    Then reality set in: I have a small space, in a small house, in a crowded neighborhood.
    When all was said and done I harvested 264 grams (9.3 ounces).

    Was the cabinet in the above article a little too much for your sensibilities? Then check out these pics by one of our awesome readers!
