Use the following items to make a stealthy grow cabinet just like his:
I vented this area with a 4″ opening that opened into the fan room.
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.
Important: The opening for your intake hole should be about twice the size of your exhaust hole.
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.
When all was said and done I harvested 264 grams (9.3 ounces).
