First Question! (ventilation without tearing up things)
    #509048 - 12/27/10 01:32 AM (5 years, 11 months ago)

Hey all,

So I currently have my 8'H x 5'L x 3'W closet converted into a grow closet.

However, I'm vegging the plants with 4' fluoro which puts off almost no heat.

I have a 250w HPS setup on order, but because my house is rented, I don't want to tear up the closet doors for ventilation.

The doors do have slats however.

What would you guys recommend for ways to get air in and out of the space as it is not currently sealed in anyway, except a dark curtain to keep light from being noticed by those who enter my room.

My plants are almost ready for flowering.

So, something cheap, efficient, and quick to install would be much appreciated!

-Dan

take the door off, get a piece of mylar or something that light can't penetrate and cover the openingr; get velcro and completely seal it by doing the obvious...attaching one side to the covering material and the other to the door frame be sure to press the two firmly together to make it light proof.

then you can add two fans, one for air in and one for air out. you'll have to be creative on how to get them to stand as the mylar obviously wont do it itself...maybe use some cheap 2x4's to build a frame for them on the inside?? use a chair?? anything, i guess it depends on your fans you're using. and you're going to need a good bit with a 250 watt hps in there.

thats really the only way i can think of without buying another door and modifying it for use and just replace the other when the lease is up. :shrug:

I want it to be as inconspicuous as possible, so that anyone who walks into my room won't instantly be sketched out by.

I'd say a giant mylar board with two fans would be a bit telling :wink:

Any way I could do similar inside the closet or using a bought wardrobe?

well in that case, i have read about these stanley blowers used..they are like 45 dollars and move a ton of air, you can find them cheaper sometimesss. you could attach some vent hoses to it someway that way you could hide the blowers wherever and run the hoses to and from it whichever way you see best.

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=stanley+blowers&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=6225880849020247525&ei=XsEYTYm0MISclgeHmMXkDA&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CCcQ8wIwAQ#

you could hide two of those...one inside the closet to move air out and one hidden in the room somewhere with a hose run to the closet to bring fresh air in.

That's certainly a possibility!
