Next, I faced the issue of providing my plants their light.
The solution I came up with was to place the duct work outside of the cabinet.
After the initial investment, $1.64 was my total cost per gram when I factored electricity, carbon filter, and nutrients.
When all was said and done I harvested 264 grams (9.3 ounces).
The first thing to deal with was the Intake and exhaust – a clean environment and fresh air for my plants.
This had been a long-time dream of mine, and I fondly imagined my first harvest, curing my flowers to perfection, and collecting their resin for concentrates. I saw myself carefully journaling their progress, and eventually becoming an expert caretaker of myself and my marijuana garden.
“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.”
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.
Sirius: Google SketchUp can be pretty tough to use without training, especially if you’ve never used it and you just want to design one thing. Rest assured: some paper, a pencil, a little math, and careful planning will work just as well!
See how one grower built his own stealthy grow cabinet (in pictures), then learn how to build your own!
Plants live and grow by consuming sugar. Plants produce sugar through converting CO2 into oxygen and sugars. Therefore, make sure to create some openings for fresh air circulation.
In order to maximize yield, you want to have the right humidity level. When the humidity level is too high, mold and fungus will appear on your plants and equipment causing damage. Both seedlings and cuttings require unique humidity levels all the way till the growing and blooming phase. In addition, there’s variation between plants in regards to humidity so conduct some research so you know what’s best for your plants.

As mentioned before, installing an air extractor enables you to regulate temperatures. This is important in order to avoid your plants from being overheated.
In this guide, we will walk you through every step you need to take in order to successfully grow your own cannabis with a grow box!
Let’s get started..
In order to prevent the smell of cannabis spreading around your house, it is recommended to buy the earlier mentioned carbon filter. Anticipate on any scenario that could bring harm to your plants or facility.
This could be a major disadvantage and might limit your yield. However, a grow box is relatively small and perfect to keep indoors. When you want to grow cannabis in a grow box, you want to pay attention to: lights, water, humidity, ventilation and temperature. All mentioned factors are in your control and can be optimized in order to perfectionate production conditions, resulting in quality cannabis!
