Starting new grow closet


#1


Trying this all for the first time. This is my first attempt at a grow “closet”. It’s 3x3x6. I have basically no budget and I save lots of stuff for rainy days… used 2x4 for a frame. 2x3 Scrog frame half way up. Getting everything else gathered together to set up. I want to do bag seed first before I spend the money on some autos. I’m doing this for the medical side of it. I’ve never smoked before. Will be used for edibles instead. I’m excited to start!


#2

The “door” is an old air mattress cover off a frame. It works good for a zipper style door. The duct tape slit is to enter closet. So it’s almost like 2 doors… lol. Waiting for a friend’s harvest to finish so I can get a few seeds to start.


#3

I like it… what kind of lighting will you be using


#4

A mix of CFL and LED. I lined the walls with aluminum foil for reflect. Once I get things moving I’d like to get real grow lights.


#5

I would go with mylar blankets instead of foil. They are cheaper, reflect light better, and cover a bigger area. I got mine at walmart for $2 6’x4’ blanket.


#6

You can order mylar online for $4.95 basically those emergency blankets mine came as a for pack and it only too 2 to entirely cover my 36"x21"x52" closet. I started from scratch too just remember temperature and ventilation go hand in hand

Thanks @Viktor7 . Yea I understand the humidity part from hatching chicken eggs.


#8

Picked up a blue Led bulb and a red one at walmart to try. Got me a set of nutes. And a little Jiffy starter dome. Gigiddy gigiddy.


#9

Picked up 2 hoods from old lights at work today. About 3’ each. Now to set it up for the light bulb fixtures.


#10

hit a jackpot today. Went to DG to return a Redbox and there garden stuff was buy 1 get 2 free! MG was 50% off as well and a guy I was helping move gave me a FL shop light! God is good!


#11

my led bulbs I’ll be using along with some CFL for beginning.


#12

am going to put in this modified water heater thermostat so it won’t get to hot. Hook it up with an extra fan.


#13

This is some weird stuff. Straight up spiderman and Venom. Lol. This was a little tiny mushroom one day. The nest day I seen it and it grew about a 3 inch stem and made this thing at the end. Weird.


#14

Have everything ready but beans. Tomorrow should be the lucky day!


#15

This is my intake and exhaust to start off with till I get going. The bucket is the exhaust and will be filled with carbon sticks and dryer sheets.
