SCROG Grow Box Plans
    #269886 - 08/24/09 07:23 PM (7 years, 3 months ago)

Hello fellow growers, I am new to the growery but I am planning on building a perpetually producing Scrog grow box during the next few weeks. I have had good outdoor grows but have never tried indoor scrog and i need some help from you pros.:smile: I plan on having an inner "grow box" (5'H, 3'W, 5'L)and an outer "safety", smell proof, light proof, sound proof box (5.5'H, 3.5'W, 5.5'L). The inner "grow box" will consist of 3 sections (Flowering (5'H, 3'W, 3'L) housing 4- 6 fem plants in pots + 1000w HPS/HID light + 16 comp fans, Vegetating (3.5'H, 3'W, 2'L) housing 6 fem in pots + 600w HPS/HID light + 6 comp fans, Cloning (1.5'H, 3'W, 2'L) housing ??? + CFLs + 1 comp fan. I plan on growing White Rigno and C99. I will also be attaching a picture of what i am planning to build shortly to help with ideas.

Are the sizes for my sections big enough for the number plants I plan to grow??:confused:
Are the light fixtures appropriate for what i want to grow??
Do i have to many/few comp fans ??they are 80X80 mm, 25000RPM, 32.5 CFM airflow. :confused:

I will be setting up plans as i go along and posting pictures of construction and my grow as it unfolds. Thank you for all your help and support!!:cool:

What are you doing for exhaust. I imagine 1000w's has it's own exhaust. Fuck 16 cpu fans. Why not just the hps exhaust+ either a stationary regular fan or an oscillating fan + a fan exhausting the chamber space 20$ at Wally's World. They're pretty quiet for stealth, and when they get loud, exchange it at cust. service for free.It will be A lot quieter than 16 mini fans, and definitely safer than that that many crossed circuits. i guess you have access to a lot of mini fans, but really, that is a lot.
Also, 1000 watts, is a lot of heat/energy in a very small space, but hey, whatever. If it does not have an exhaust built in to it's housing, you can construct one McGuyver style. Look around construction sites, buldings being torn down, etc. for exhaust piping. You will need make sure they're parts that handle constant, high heat, like furnace piping, shit like that. insulate the cabinet itself for heat dispersion. 12 hours daily of 1000 watts gets super fucking hot if your not careful.

I myself, don't recommend using such a powerful/dangerous light in such a small space. Besides, your specs say 5x3x5. your scrog will be spaced uneven using only one light. You could try two 500w's, or check out the libraries here for designs that utilize wall space to even out the lighting.

Get yourself a FIRE EXTINGUISHER!!!:chong:

Good luck, and have a kind grow.:ganja:

Depends on how you prune the plants



Are the light fixtures appropriate for what i want to grow??
As long as you can keep them cool the'll work.


Do i have to many/few comp fans ??they are 80X80 mm, 25000RPM, 32.5 CFM airflow?
If the plants don't have windburn it isn't to much. That isn't to much.

Heyy man, I haven't logged on 4 a wile because I keep changing my sketches. What size do you think would be appropriate for a grow box to continually produce 6 flowering and 6 vegging plants (indicas and maybe some crosses mainly indica??
I will draw a sketch based on whatever ideas you can help me out with and post.

Lights: 420W total(10 X 42W CFL bulbs) or 400W HPS?
Pots: soil in 3g or 5g pots?
Fans: 8 80X80 mm, 25000RPM, 32.5 CFM airflow computer fans or +/- fans?
Exhaust: not sure, ideas? i will have a carbon air scrubber to clean air output.

Working space: hoping for max of 5H X 5L X 3W or if possible to do under, may add 1/2Ft if necessary but less space= better. It will be hidden under a pile of junk for stealth, I plan on having an inner and outer grow box. Inner will roll out on wheals from outer and have have 2 doors on either side.

any help would be greatly appreciated. Tank you:smile:

He hasn't been around in 9 months so I don't think he's gonna answer the question.

There easy enough to make.
