Stealth Grow Box [Dresser] In the works - W/ Pics
    #322841 - 11/28/09 11:13 PM (7 years, 8 days ago)

went to a second hand shit store and picked up a cheap 40 dollar dresser.



took it home and tore it apart. i went further than this pic, but i dont have any of what i did next. i just took the back and middle drawer supports out.



i then used wood glue to glue the drawer door panels back to the dresser front, and well. looks pic the first picture now, but without the back or anything inside.

i measured the bottom of the inside and cut a piece of that fake wood stuff out and set it in. i also put 2 ceiling hooks in the top and attached the light, put the tray of seedlings and clones on the bottom, and placed a fan in front of the open dresser sucking the air thats in the dresser and blowing it out.



i need to get some money together to pick up a squirrel cage fan, carbon filter, vent tubes, and panda film. im working on the removable back piece now. im using the original back piece, but adding supports so it doesnt flop over and break off. i have velro to hold it onto the back of the dresser. i plan on having the air exit at the top on the back, and the air entrance on the bottom back behind the bottom of the plants. i thought about just using a regular house wall vent thing, or even cutting up a piece of air filter and using that so all the air coming in is cleaned before going to the plants.

ive got 4 seedlings and 6 clones. im definitely not going to have enough room. i had no idea how big of a dresser i needed for a 150 watt light. i could have gone bigger.... ill have to find new homes for some of these when they start taking up room. ill come back and update this when things progress. just thought id post what ive been working on the past few days.

Put that light closer, since it's only a 150w HPS it won't burn very easily.  I kept my 175w MH only 4-5 inches from my tops, just as long as you have a fan moving the hot air around, not stagnating at the canopy causing heat stress.  See how your seedlings are stretching?  You gotta transplant them deep next time so you bury that stem up  to the first node.

im kind of scared to put the light any closer lol i just feel like im going to burn the plants... ill give it a try though. im sure itll be fine.

i need to take a picture of the sour diesel plant and post in whatever forum that is. i think there may be some kind of nutrient deficiency. i need to buy a couple of pots to transfer in to that arent too tall, the one i have now is 1.7 gallon and about a foot tall. that might take up too much room....

You are right, you will DEFINITELY need more room.

Also, you need more light. Put it closer to the plants for increased intensity, a 150w should not burn them unless it is 6 inches or less from the plant. Listen to Inverted

Good luck on the grow!

well i have the light hanging on a chain now so i can easily adjust the height.

i lowered the light a bit, but i just repotted a clone into a 1.7 gallon tall pot, so the light cant get too much closer. ill have to elevate the plants to get closer to the light.

I envy your setup.  I've decided that i'm moving to colorado in 1.5-2 years.

Once my debts to the state are paid me and my GF are moving there to get our med licenses so we can both have 6? plants... Then shit's gonna go down.  I so can't fucking wait.
