$1000 dollar indoor growroom...need help please (my first post!)
    #668700 - 05/01/13 11:39 PM (3 years, 7 months ago)

I have about a 1000 dollar budget. I want to build this growroom in a inclosed cabinet or something i can build out of wood. I think 7ft high by 4ft wide and 6ft long. I wanted to get about a 600w HPS light with a air cooled reflector.  I dont know how big my fan should be to cool this.

then I wouuld have a out take fan to vent to cabinet and i want to build i carbon scrubber to clean the air. I also dont know what kind or how big of a fan i need for that. Then i dont know if i should have a intake fan as well.

I also want to buy some sort of CO2 tank and regulator. but im confused on what kinda on/off cycles i should have the CO2 released and dont know if i can afford any kind of CO2 monitor or anything right now.

and as far as my hydro goes. I wanted to do a flood and drain setup. Dont know how many gallons i would need in my resvoir or how many plants. I thinking maybe 4 plants doing the SOG method.

Also, does anyone know a good website to order most of this stuff off of such as the light setup, pumps, fans, nutes. 
Can anyone recommend a good TDS/PH tester?

please help so i can hurry up and order all of this stuff and get my grow built so i can post it in the grow log posts. lol

also can anyone suggest some good seeds. I was going for something with high yeild (1 gram/watt would be ideal) and something maybe purple or a different color than just lime green.

Hey thanks. I went to that page and put together a supplies list. Here it is...

http://www.rvfgardensupply.com/cgi/viewcart.cgi

Idk if that'll work for y'all or not. Please take a look and let me know if it works, if not ill type in every thing I want to buy.

Please take the time to help a noob out. My list is just under a grand after shipping and that's a lot of money so any input would be helpful. I still yacht decided on which seeds to buy either...

First off, don't forget to use your growery discount on RFV. Code is 420 or fourtwenty I forget.

You should decide weather ur gonna use ventilation or CO2 before shopping, the two don't work well together.

4x6 is 24 sq ft. You need a minimum of 1200 watts for that space, but if I was you I'd divide that room into 2. Then use a 400watt for veg and 600watt for flowering.

1000$ is more then reasonable. My best advice would be: if you want good results, go with the tried and true. Hid's, ff soil+nutes, no co2.

Ok. So if I supply good enough CO2 then ventilation isn't even.needed considering humidity and temperature is fine? I think.I definitely want to add CO2.but y'all are the experts.

And for the lights I realized that yesterday so I figured I'd build a flower box that is 3 by 5 feet.

My veg box will.most likely be fluorescent lights.

How will you get rid of the smell without a fan?

I couldn't see your shopping list, but if I was you I would get a 600watt hps ballast+reflector+bulb, 250 watt MH ballast+yadda+yadda, 2 4" inline fans, 1 4" carbon filter, fox farm ocean forest soil and 3 part nutients,

That's 90% of what you need $-wise. Around 800$ all together

Being you're a beginner.
I recommend avoiding the CO2, and go with mas air flow set.
Meaning you'll want good filters and a fan or fans capable of changing the air in the rooms greater than 3 times a minute.
I myself change at a rate of ten times a minute.

Well for starters you're going to want your filter off the floor, to pull the hot air out fromthe top of the room.
To find cubic foot, WxLxH=cubicfeet, you'll want 3 to 5 times that at least. 
Fans are rated at cfm= cubic feet per minute.

3x5x7=105 cu ft. Technically you just need 315cfm+, but I would go at least 400 since you're gonna have to pull air through a filter.

As for veg, just get the cheapest 4" inline fan they got. I have a 240cfm one I got for 80$ and I never even use it on full.

P.S. you're gonna want to get a fan speed controller.

Man guys, yall are being extremely helpful. Sorry for all the questions. I just don't want to waste good money and do everything right.

Couple more questions if y'all can just bare with me.

1st. What about the fan that is taking heat away from my lights.. How big should that be?

2nd. When you say for my flowering i would need about a 400cfm? is that intake or out-take? I'm assuming its out-take. And if so, can i just use like a Y coupling in my vents to vent my flowering room and heat from my lights? Then push all that out-take air through my carbon scrubber?

Thats what im thinking anyways. Hopefully y'all can imagine what im talking about.

3rd. what about the in-take fans? Those don't have to be very big at all right? Maybe a computer fan or something.

Well other than that i think that pretty wraps up all of the major details about that.

Most likely a six to eight inch fan would work nice here.  I'd run it straight thru, meaning fresh air in to hoods and back out never touching the air in the grow rooms itself.

Well you'll want to pull air thru the filer then out of the room/house.  As for the Y thingie, I wouldn't go there, mainly because the filter won't work right unless you're moving the correct amount of air thru it.

No need for intake fans, with such an exhaust only an in take hole is needed, and air will be pulled thru it passively.

    #668908 - 05/03/13 12:54 AM (3 years, 7 months ago)

that was very helpful asshole... lol.. Can i say that?

but here is a list i compiled on that website rvfgardensupplies.com

Keep in mind that is the price BEFORE discount. Does anyone know how much the discount is anyways? Also i want to visit other websites and make the same list to see if I can find better deals anywhere.
Can anyone suggest any?

Also I went ahead and got a 1000 watt light bc it was cheaper than a 600 watt. IDK why. It just is. So I might make my flower room a little bigger. Also, the MH ballast i have is switchable and you can run either 250w/400w bulbs. So thats pretty cool. It was $180.00.

Also can yall make see if I got the right nutrients and testers. thanks guys. And is that pump big enough for the size reserver i need? How big of a reserver would i need?

Everything else that i would need that is not on this list i believe I can buy at local hardware stores.
