I live in a prohibition state and have a stealth grow in my garage. It is a work in progress and the current problem I have is the exhaust air is too loud and coming from and area that should not have any sound. So it seems obvious to me that people would notice that something is amiss here. It is a 6 inch exhaust with the sound of air moving rather than a mechanical noise from the fan. I could get a speed controller to slow down the fan speed but don’t want to risk the temp spike. Any ideas would be appreciated!
Also, I’m sure some of you guys have some super stealthy set ups peeps like me would love to see and bounce off ideas…so show us your grow!
I would definitely get a speed control for the fan you can run that fan on the low setting of the speed control and still maintain a negative pressure inside grow tent. Also running it on low it’s going to cut down a lot on sound. You can put a sound deadener kit on the outside of the fan housing will also cut down on sound. I like the 6-inch because of the bigger filter. good luck
As soon as Michigan legalized recreational cannabis, I went to my personal “seed bank” and started my first grow ever. The room is a “work in progress” and will continue to evolve. I’m finding growing to be very therapeutic and can’t keep myself out of the room LOL.
No idea how many are viable but I’ve been collecting them for a long time
When MI passed the law to be able to grow it legally. I pulled out my seeds and went to town. The big bummer was when I found out that 5 out of 5 were males. All that time and nutrients and power were wasted on them. If you can find female clones from friends or buy fem seeds thru a good site. I’d go that route. Learn to clone and you will be in business. You want a new strain down the line shouldn’t be hard later on when MI really ramps up with it. I’m sure more and more people be willing to exchange plants for $.
Good luck in all your grows.
I did the same thing. I’m in the metro Detroit area and planted 9 seeds the week after the election. I planted 3 seeds each in the left, center and right of a large plastic drink tub-probably 4 to 4 1/2 gallons. Plan was to hopefully get at least 2 viable sprouts in each location and then select the best one for a total of 3 plants. Huge rookie mistake. Only 2 sprouted and they were right next to each other on the left side🤦♂️.
I won’t make that mistake again! Good thing is one is definitely female and have successfully taken clones from her which are now in my veg room. (Originals) were put into flower 3 days ago. The second plant has been growing in the shadow of the female and has not shown signs of sex yet. I also have 2 viable clones from this one as well and check daily for sexing. Through LST I have been able to get it into the light so hopefully I’ll know soon.
Anyway, welcome to this forum and have a great grow! Finding it very therapeutic and exciting. Make sure you download the Bible as well as “tips for growing marijuana”. Tons of good info there.
Not sure what your plans are but I suggest going in soil and only committing to one plant. I have found it is very forgiving and easier to make corrections. Not sure if you ever tried before but you will find yourself spending a lot of time with her.
You might want to buy some feminized seeds from ILGM to significantly increase your chances of a successful grow!
