open for ideas
    #434585 - 06/18/10 12:33 AM (6 years, 5 months ago)

So I built this 5'x5'x5' box, lights are on pully's. The top and bottum is kinda open for venting, but the room is completly blacked out and its a 10'x10' room. I'm going to add tin foil on the sides later on  when the plants get larger. There is a ceiling fan, I also have 2 small box fans for later on if needed...

I'm open for any idea's for this box to be a monster. :smile:

Tin foil is a waste, paint with flat white wall paint.

I'd go ahead and do the whole thing, then you have the benefit of reflection and sealing the plywood.

You have to tell us more man.  You want to make that box into one grow chamber?  What is your budget? Here is my advice:

Paint the inside with white primer and white reflective paint

Jorge Cervantes sez, "The fan should be able to replace the air volume in under 5 minutes" so you have 125 cubic feet of air you need an exhaust fan.  If noise is an issue you want an inline fan, and if not you can opt for a squirrel cage one. 

You need a light.  I am no expert on this you will have to ask someone else, but I think you want at least 1000 watts in there.  Some would say get one 1000 watter but you might be better off with two 400 watt lights b/c your box is only 5' high.

Yea, I wanted that to  just be one grow chamber. I have another area for clones and a mother plant. Noise is not a problem. I'm thinking im only going to have about 15 or so plants going in there. I can prob spend about another 250-300$ I guess, already spent about 300 on all the supplies already :frown:

You really think I'll need a big fan? the room has to doors to it, one that goes into my bedroom and the other to the living room. I have the cieling fan on high. I just figured that would be enough to move the air around....:crazy:

$300 is not a lot man, but it is enough to get started.  Even if you acquire most of your supplies for super cheap you still need a ballast and bulb if you are going to grow some dank.  This might help you grow on a budget: http://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?p=678179.

You need ventilation for two reasons.  First, you need to circulate air around your plants so that they can photosynthesize (so get gaseous water, O2 out and CO2 in).  Second, your light is going to generate a lot of heat.  If your 5x5x5 box does have 2 "doors" (wtf do you mean by doors? how big are they and do they close?) and your ceiling fan is powerful, then your grow room should be fine if you put a few fans in the box to make the plants sway a little bit.  However, b/c during the flowering phase the plants need total darkness and the doors will likely have to close, you will probably need to cut a hole in your box with a fan in it to create ventilation for the dark cycle.

The box is in a 10'x10' room, its a spare bedroom. the doors are just reg bedroom doors you open and close to your room. theres also 2 windows but i have them blacked out.

wow 1,500$..thats crazy, im not doing a whole room, its just a 5x5 box inside 10x10 room. I guess my issue was or is, ventting the room out.

I have ceiling fan and other box fans plus 2 windows, so that should be enough fresh air going through right?? I wasn't wanting to buy items for a vent system

I cant say for sure brother.  You could start out with that but be prepared to buy some more ventilation equipment if it starts getting hot in there.

Ok sounds good...I have some white rhino and free seed of sour cream on the way should be here in 2 days, I have bag seed of something that just came up and there's no rockwool sold around here so I soaked them in water for 24 hours. Should I do the same with WR and the papper towl method or just soak and plant, I'm hopeing this turns out better then my first round but I have learned a lot since then too, thanks for all the replies.
