The Doc builds a clone/mother tent
    #138295 - 10/30/08 01:25 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Welcome,
Due to my limited space I decided to build a fully collapsible, tent for mothers and clones. So without further ado;

Tent Construction:
Part List:

(**All pvc sizes are 1/2" unless otherwise stated**)
8- 90o turns with threaded side out
8- Threaded-push adapters
2- T connectors


4- 2' lengths
4- 1.5' lengths


4- 9" lengths
3- 24" lengths (Not pictured)


20sqft- Black and white Poly film


1- Hacksaw
2- Velcro strips
1- Roll of black duct tape




Build it!:

1) Connect all threaded adaptors to the 90o elbows.



2) Connect the bottom and top frame by connecting the 90o angle joints to alternating 1.5' and 2' pvc lengths.


3) Build the rear pillars and supports by attaching 2x9" lengths to the T fitting.


4) Affix a 24" length between the two T fittings, creating an "H". Connect the "H" to the rear 90o connectors on the wide side. Now affix the remaining two 24" sections to the front of the bottom frame. Cap the structure with the mirror image of the bottom frame.


5) Wrap the skeletons sides with a 28"X64" piece of Black and White polly.


6) Wrap a second piece 25"x90" from the bottom-->back-->top-->front. Leave the front piece unattached like a flap. Attach Velcro strips to the bottom corners of the flaps. (I forgot to take pictures of this step. Check the completed structure for details.)

7) Cut an appropriately sized hole in the side of the tent for ventilation. I used a 80mm muffin fan, but you can use any small fan really.






Finished:

The finished product allows me to keep a couple small mother plants around without requiring any space in my cabinet. Best of all, if it's not in use, I can break it down to store it. This style tent can be proportioned in any way you like to hold as few or as many plants as required, just a bit of math.
Let me know what you think, questions and critiques always welcome.  :stoner:

Nice tek!  I love seeing all the 'how to's' you guys post.  I need to find some of that stuff quick.  I looked for visqueen at one hydro shop.  I haven't seen this black white poly before.  That looks exactly like what I need to partition things off.

Looks very good! What kind of lighting are you using for this? Thanks for sharing your tek with me, this seems like one of the most cost efficient systems I have seen so far.

There's a good idea!  Too often I forget about the main sites for here and the shroomery.  The growery's main site was fairly empty last time i checked it.

Ya know, I haven't posted it up there yet, I should look into it. As far as whats in it now, a pot of gold mother and two potential doublegum mothers. I'm growing out some test stock right now, whichever I like best I'll keep, the rest get composted.

Cost wise, about 25$. The most expensive parts are the pvc connectors.

ooooh, POG!! One of my favorite "xmas chronic" strains.  Seems i only managed to find that one after the fall harvests.  Definitely a good one :laugh:

Ahahaha. As a matter of fact, I think the test run for the POG will be finished on, or a couple days after Xmas, so it will defintly be Christmas chronic. I resurrected this POG mother from a disaster with miracle grow organic potting mix. I can't wait to try it out, it is a very hardy plant, quite the survivor, a bit stretchy though. She seems to be flowering quickly so I will evaluate the final yields and determine weather or not she's a keeper.

That's a lot more cost efficient than a lot of the other setups I have been looking at. Having homegrown christmas weed is going to be awesome

Must find more information about making carbon scrubbers for odor!
