G13 plan. 150w Hps Carbon filter??
    #401226 - 04/14/10 08:33 AM (6 years, 7 months ago)

hello i have a small area to grow in and was only planning on growing 1 barneys farm g13 haze and 1 autoflower maybe 2 autoflowers under a floralux mini 150W HPS. I will also use a carbon filter with a fan from htgsupply. Now ive grown indoors under cfl before and had 180W worth of CFL and it was pretty hot but i did not have a carbon filter or AC in like i will this time/ Will the smell and heat be gone? is 16000 lumens enough for those plants? 1 g13 2 auto white russian?

150w will be enough light just make sure you don't veg too long. The autoflowers won't take up much space leaving most of the light for the G13, so you should have a nice plant when its done.

Yeah you will need to run ducting between them and a single carbon filter is fine. It is preferable to have the carbon filter mounted high inside the cab and the fan exhausting outside. That way you are pulling air through your filter as opposed to pushing through it, which you should only do if your fan is overly powerful since it reduces airflow. The 150w doesn't generate much heat so you can have it very close to the canopy.

The whole point of the carbon filter is to filter air through it to be exhausted outside of the room.

You're only going to have 3 plants under a 150W light (2 autoflowers and a G13). If you ask me, you probably won't even need the carbon filter. That few plants shouldn't smell much, if at all.

I run a 400W and as long as the air is circulating, I hardly ever notice the smell unless I'm right in the room with them.

I would think you would be okay just running the filter in the room. Guess you got a really stinky strain or a really small space.

The 150W shouldn't create too much heat. A lot less than 180W of CFL, so you shouldn't have a problem there.

You can use the carbon filter to just scrub the air in the grow room without exhausting it. Some actually prefer to do it that way.

When you think about it though, when you're exhausting the carbon filter out of the grow area, it's gonna keep somewhat of a negative pressure on the grow room and that will prevent odors from seeping out even better.

okay well i bought a 150w sun system and a growbright 4" carbon filter. I plan on growing 3 fem auto ak47 for now since they are already started and the most expensive seeds i have so i want to make sure i grow them lol. although the ak47 is a really stinky strain it says so will my carbon filter be enough? i am just going to use it as a scrubber and use other fans in my closet to push the air in / out and with my AC i shouldnt have a problem with heat but how about smell?

I'm think it would be wiser financially to buy the inline fan and make your own carbon filter!  This site has the instructions, which are really easy.  Hell, I've even seen ducting that runs to a 5 gallon bucket with holes in the bottom covered with an air filter and carbon pellets.  150w isn't a whole lot to grow 3 plants, but maybe 1 really well.  You might just want to consider buying oder gel that covers up smoke.  Who do you have to concern yourself with about the smell issue?  Maybe a $150 ionizer would be worth your $$$!  :syringe::mushroom2:
