grow room planning and design
    #500100 - 11/22/10 04:33 PM (6 years, 16 days ago)

i thought i'd make a thread just for all the questions im going to have regarding the set up of a grow closet. i doubt this grow will be under way untill after the new year, but i like to plan ahead. :grin:

this is the basic plan for the grow.

the actual grow area is going to be a wardrobe
250w hps/halide light
2 plants
4 inch ruck fan and filter

my main concern at the moment is power. i only have 3 power outlets in my bedroom so i was curious whether a contactor is actually neccesary for a single 250w hps/halide light.

lots more questions to come  :hehehe:

thanks :highfive:

yeah im in UK. and im really not too sure about this, but i think the sockets(outlets) in my room are spurs off the main circuit and i think the breaker is rated to 32 amps

electrical stuff confuses me :lol:

but after reading a few stories about timers melting because they didnt use a conacter ive decided it probably is best to use one just in case. it just means i need to move the furniture around a bit.

this grow room design is giving me a headache most wardrobes are probably going to be too small to fit a decent reflector and i cant even think how im going to be able to light proof the passive intake:confused:

im tempted to buy a grow tent but it wouldnt be as stealthy if i was to have some unwanted visitors :strokebeard:

maybe i could cover it with posters so it at least looks like it could be a wardrobe :shrug:

It would be good to befriend someone who knows about elect.
Thats what I did.

Dealing with heat is a bitch. In summer cost more running a/c than lights and fans.

You'll figure it out.

:lol: luckilly its rare we get many hot days here. so i dont think it should be too difficult to keep the temp within reasonable limits. one of the benefits of a small grow :grin:
