Hello all, wanted to share an idea that is working very well for me. I’ve made these for two of my tents now, and they’re a big help and very easy to make. I made the first one because I overcrowded my tent when I first started out and it allowed me to get the heater and humidifier along with a fan underneath the plants and free up space to spread them out a bit. Then I realized I can easily fit a couple of propagation chambers under there when I needed to as well. On the second one I made (the one in the pic) I added side ladders to hang fans or anything else on. While I was growing photo periods I did get close to running out of height a couple of times, but luckily my tents are 84" so I was able to get my lights up high enough. Now I’m growing autos, so these racks work even better because height is not an issue at all. It also makes it easier on my back when I’m putting the plants back in the tent after feeding or watering them. I don’t have to bend down nearly as far. I think it also helps that so much more air is moving around underneath the fabric pots. I don’t seem to have issues keeping humidity down in flower nearly as much as I used to.
Basically all you need is some 3/4" PVC, elbows, T’s, couplings, and a couple of closet shelves. I don’t glue the joints, just press them together so you can always make changes. The best part is you can customize it in any way that works for you.
One note, if you do something like this and put a heater underneath it like the 700watt oil filled ones I use, make sure you have a fan blowing on it so it doesn’t overheat the bottoms of the pots.
