Should I paint the ceiling rafters in basement?
    #615593 - 04/01/12 09:36 AM (4 years, 8 months ago)

I have a 10' x 10' room with a door in my basement that I will be using as my new grow room. Out grown my little room down there! I'm going to paint it white (all the walls). should I paint the ceiling rafters? or cover it up? or just leave it alone? My little grow room that I'm using now (4' x 8') just have paint on the walls but not the ceiling rafters. Any input? Thanks

I have never grown before really but I dont think it would matter much. I think it's just whether or not you are bored and want it to look a little more professional. I dont think it would impact your yields

Yeah, probably wouldn't really effect it too much. If ya got the shit to do it and are bored, might as well.

I think the effect would be minimal, but could see how it may slightly increase the amount of light reflected back downwards.  Also, painting the wood puts a mask over the surface of the wood that may have molds and bacteria trapped in it, thus keeping some of it from dropping on plants, soil, etc.

I would do it, but a good high gloss white paint is only about $10 a gallon by me.  Cheap investment IMO.

I am not a cannabis grower.  I find the cannabis growers to be the most open to experimenting and sharing out of all of the different botany groups I enjoy.  I frequently use the suggestions that I find to apply to own organic gardening and food production.

I agree with all of this except one thing.
Don't use gloss paint, to appear glossy it has to take in light.
Flat is by far more reflective.
Just saying.
