I’m new to growing and am hoping some of you veteran growers can help me out on figuring out what setup I should get. I was leaning towards a grow box vs a tent to avoid issues like broken zippers or light leaking through. I don’t have a ton of space, so I was thinking about the Deluxe Hydroponic Grow Cabinet 36” x 24” x 72”, or the SuperStar Hydroponic Grow Box 24”x 24” x 60”. But I’ve read some pretty horrible reviews about their product and customer service, even though they claim to have won all of these awards.
Does anyone have any personal experience with Supercloset or the grow boxes I listed?
I read the ventilation is inadequate, and I will end up buying all kinds of additional equipment to properly grow.
I would prefer a setup that’s a little more automated, and would prefer to grow 2 plants at the same time vs just one. I do have more space outside on the side of my house, but it seems counterproductive to put an indoor box outside.
I am open to any other grow box suggestions. I even looked at the “Mary Model Z”, and “The Green Goddess Armoire”, but I know I will have very limited yields with both of those models.
The majority of indoor growers here use tents. Grow boxes can be very limiting and take away your ability to provide good airflow and ventilation. A 36” x 24” x 72” box is a pretty tight space, even for just one plant. Unless you have significant experience training a plant to live in such a confined space, I would stay away from a box.
Bingo. @shep523tke im running a grow in my 1st Super Closet for Legal reasons but have 3 tents I was using. I have a tendency to grow too many plants and that lead me to several training techniques to accomplish that. I’ll have to modify this closet for fresh air intake, it’s designed with a passive intake that’s not getting the temps down to where I like them with lights on. Here’s my super closet with 3 in the 4th week of veg and the 2nd pick is 6 in a 3 x 4 x 78”
I’ve looked at several kits but piece mine together. The lights they offer are insufficient. I’ll take a quick look for you, what kind of budget do you have so I’ll know the ceiling and number of plants, you’ll want to grow more after the 1st run… trust me on that one
I’m OK, but wouldn’t consider myself a handyman by any means. I figured since this is all new to me, it would be easier to buy a complete kit even if it was a little more expensive doing it that way. I was looking at Gorilla tents, but it looks like I will have to buy all the accessories separately. I guess I could build a closet outside. It would give me more grow room at least. But building something opens a whole new can of worms with having to research every aspects of all components.
Welcome to the neighborhood. For $2000.00 you can get a really nice set up. Just do your research and ask questions before you purchase your components. You want to get it right the first time. Happy Growing
Hi there and welcome to the neighborhood
I would definitely add everything everyone said and look up some of the better equipment. I have a closet full of cheap light, nutes i didn’t like, ph meter that wasn’t worth a dime…the list could go on. then i found ilgm. HLG OR spider farmer for lights, gorilla tent, ac infinity carbon exhaust, fans, lot on here use Jack’s 321, bluelab or apera meters, ac, Humidifier, timers, …you have a nice budget to use. You will love your new addictive hobby, might as well get the better equipment now instead of having a closet like mine. Like @OGIncognito said, you will want to grow more after your first. This is just a few ideas to combine with others’ ideas. This is the best place to learn and teach and ask.
