Building a stealth grow box

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.

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!
After the initial investment, $1.64 was my total cost per gram when I factored electricity, carbon filter, and nutrients.

Next to the fan room is space for other more technical things. Here we find the ballast and command switching station.
Final Harvest Weight: 264 grams (9.3 Ounces)
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.
This allowed three different height settings for the light. The unused two positions are capped off. Take a look…

Next, I faced the issue of providing my plants their light.

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.

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

    I want it to be safe from fires or electrical problems. So if I go away for the day or week-end I don’t have to worry about it.

    A reflective inside to help use all light sources.

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

      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+)

    I’m very interested in growing and I’m new to it.

    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.

    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…
