Thinking about building a grow room
    #291814 - 10/04/09 08:05 PM (7 years, 1 month ago)

I'm going to build a grow room along the lines of what Harry_Ba11sach is planning. 

I want to lay down a 10 x 10 ft concrete slab and build a grow room on it.

I will be growing weed and shrooms in this place. I have grown shrooms in the past, but know very little about growing weed.

So I would like any input y'all could give me.

The kind of help I need is.

The overall room will be 10ft x 10ft.

How big should my veg and fruit rooms be for 4-5 plants?

How much air exchange would I need for something like that?
Could a whole room air filter system work or do I need a separate system for each gro room?

Is a general room temp good enough or do I need to have a different temp for each room.

I know so little and have the ability to do this right, I just have no idea how/where to start :confused:

I'm pretty sure I can have a veg room, fruit room and a place to grow my shrooms in a 10x10 room.

And, I live in the country, so I'm not worried about anyone seeing/walking into this 'shed'.

I can try to answer a few of these.

That's quite a large space for so few plants.. going to let them get giant?
Your rooms should be as big as you want the plants to be + your lights.
I'm assuming you would have 3 in veg (one mother two clones) and two in the flower room.
How much space will the shrooms take up? Monos or greenhouse?

General room temp is alright for all stages of growth so long as it does not drop below 55 degrees in the flowering stage of growth,
nor exceed 85 degrees during the day(some strains are able to handle higher temps, but I don't like to get any warmer than this.)

You can have one ventilation system that services each room.
It's going to take a lot of thinking on your part, and some help from the internet.

I will probably only have a few monotubs for the shrooms.
I figure the shrooms won't take up much room.
I will probably just use this room for an incubator, and simply fruit the mush in the house.

The room will be 7-8 ft tall, so I don't plan on letting the plants get too big, probably have 4-6 vegging and 4-6 flowering.

Would a 3x4 ft area be big enough for 4-6 plants?

I could possibly have my grow rooms set up in such a way that they could be used for either veg or fruit. Not sure how hard it would be to move the plants from one room to another, might be easier to just move lights around. :shrug:

I was considering having one room with a HPS light for vegging and another room with a MH for fruiting. I might just set up each room with a HPS and a MH light and switch it depending on growth cycle.

Maybe use both lights for veg and fruit :confused:

I want to get this thing set up right the first time.

I don't plan on selling any. I'm just tired of spending money each month on weed. I want a set up where I can grow my own and NEVER have to buy weed again.

So what you're looking for is a nice perpetual harvest set up.

OK so, in the VEG area is where you want your MH.

In the FLOWERING area is where you want your HPS.

Two different lights, focusing on two different spectrums.
Blue(MH) for promoting growth, red(HPS) for promoting flowering. It is not necessary to have both in each room.

A 7-8 ft tall room will allow you some LARGE plants.
A 3ftx4ftx8ft space will definetly allow 4-6 plants.
You have a lot of potential space to work with here.
Ultimately, it's you who decides how many plants and how big you want to let them get.
Don't forget you can train your plants. Theoretically you can have them climb all over your room if you want.
Here is one badass guide.

It's much easier to move plants around vs moving your lighting around IMHO.
Once the lighting is set up I try not to move it, aside from up or down from the canopy.

Yea, I got my lighting all ass backwards :tongue:

So two 3x4x6 ft areas would be big enough to have 4-6 plants vegging and 4-6 flowering.

I need to get some graph paper and draw this bitch out.

OK here is my sketch so far
(not to scale :tongue:)



The little X's are where I want power outlets to be
Each grow room will be 3ft X 4ft with a small vent
in the front to allow air into each room

My question now is how should I vent the rooms

Will I need some kind of carbon filter to help with the smell?
Should I vent the air from the grow rooms back into the shed
or should they be vented out of the shed????

Where should my air intake vents for the shed be?

I will probably use a space heater in the winter
and I may need a small window AC unit for the summer

I have never grown weed but do not think that it will be too hard.

Just gotta take this thing one step at a time.

The thought of never having to pay for my precious weed is a strong motivator for completing this project.
