I made a Rubbermaid Grow Box *PICS*
    #466568 - 08/24/10 03:45 PM (4 years, 25 days ago)

So, I decided to make a small, but hopefully functional grow box that is somewhat inconspicuous. I'm also more about quality instead of quantity, so yes, this isn't for huge crops.

-It will utilize CFL and florescent lights to keep heat to a minimum.
-The top contains a 6 inch inline duct fan for air circulation and cooling.
-A carbon filter can easily be attached or built to the top.
-The interior is coated with metallic duct tape and is super reflective.

Here are some pictures:








The total cost for all materials was about $65.00, most of which was the duct fan ($30.00). The time it took to build was approximately 4 hours.

So, what do you guys think?

If you read the thread, you would know it is metallic duct tape.

I would put them low on the sides.

Love CFL micro grows.  My prediction is you will harvest some bud from that, be addicted to growing and want an upgrade.  Stick around and we'll help you out.

Might want to cut a hole in there for fresh air as KaptKid mentioned but other than that it looks pretty good :smile: :bonghit:

and I hope this doesn't sound condescending but when using CFL's you've gotta make sure there is enough light from those tiny bulbs (some cfls are ultra shitty compared to similar ones) and of course that they are the right temp./color. How many lumens are your bulbs providing?

Those two on the sides were just what I started with. They are to help get some light into the mid sections of the plants as they grow. I also installed some clamp lights on both sides of the fan in the top half, both with 100w 6500K CFLs. They are adjustable to move up and down so they can get closer to the seedlings.

I'm not really new to growing. I've had several successes with CFL grows, but now I have a nice discreet box to put it all in.

I've also considered that if I wanted to take this to the next level, I could use the same exact design but get the largest Rubbermaid totes I could find. I could use either 2 foot or 4 foot T5 fluorescent bulbs to really get some lumen output.

Something like this or this.
