Will my setup work?
    #708467 - 01/19/14 01:23 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

Im married and have a house, no kids but my wife would worry way to much if she found out i was growing & my parents visit frequently so they couldnt know. Im planning on growing upstairs . I have 2 attics one on each side of the room. Each about 5 feet tall. Im planning on making one of those space buckets to grow in . Gunna have a pc fan intake and a pc fan outake connected to a homemade carbon filter. Im only growing one plant at a time since this is my first time growing. Any suggestions or should this work fine because smell IS an issue. Growing Northern lights btw.

Yeah it can work if your using as I assume some kind of cfl or t5 light.


Make sure you like everything with plastic. Water leaks in attics are expensive disasters.

It will need to be a strong one.


How are you going to get in and out of the attic every day with water and supplies and not tell your wife?

Dude it wont last, she'll find out, like 99% sure it will happen.

Also, you can make a carbon filter out of pencil cup holders and some pantie hose.  i made one, they work alright.

why not just be honest about it..... here under 5 plants is never prosecuted so its not like breaking the law if ur growing 1-4 plants



If you can get her on board your gonna save yourself TONS of stress and prob a big fight down the road :thumbup:




Grab a sack.... get her high and break the news :stoned:

she won't smell it if you have the right size scrubber for your attic. You'd be much better off buying a carbon filter rather than making one.

phresh filter just came out with a new product called the Hyper Fan It's crazy quiet. Your wife definitely wouldn't hear it.

pick up that fan and a carbon scrubber...seal your attic off and you'd won't have to worry about odor. Might cost ya $325-350, but it'd be well worth it if you're serious about getting started on growin your own smoke.

Don't mean to be a asshole here but I'm willing to bet this is your first and last grow. 1 plant with small lights (they have to be small with computer fans being the air source). Having to hide the system from your wife and parents. This sounds like a high school freshman hiding plants in his closet so his Mom and Dad don't find out. You're setting yourself up for more of a pain in the ass then anything else. I'd just buy the oz that your gonna spend 3 months growing.

He is right man. The temptation is definitely great, but whether your actually a freshman hiding it from parents or trying to hide it from your wife and parents; the risk is just not worth it. I mean no offense at all to you or your wife, but think about how many wives get pissed and call the 5-0 on their husbands for fights or for shit like this just out of spite. Imagine man, you could be chancing a lot just for one or two plants.

You have to weigh the pros and cons. The cons kinda outweigh the pros in your situation.

Talk it out with her like P-O said. Buy a sack and smoke with her and be honest. If she is still against it after that then you know where she stands. Just deal with the dealers for awhile until you are in a 100% safe environment to grow in. Your freedom and reputation is not something you want to take chances with.

As for the parents, I guess its a case by case thing. My mom is definitely not cool with it, but she would never turn me in for it. She knows I am a grown ass man who makes his own decisions.lol. Most parents don't want their children in prison,lol, its just the point of how much they don't want their kids smoking weed.lol.

Again man, I mean no disrespect to you or your wife, but you know whether or not you can be open about something like this.
Good luck brother and I hope your wife gets on board with you, its wonderful sharing something like growing with a significant other.

Also dont forget...

Were talking about bringing bags of soil home/into the attic, filling gallons of water and taking them through the house into the attic, then the water has to go SOMEWHERE so you are carrying trays of water to dump into sinks or tubs down in your house, carrying equipment such as lights, fans, buckets, tape, string, etc, spending hours in there pruning the plants themselves, constantly checking in for high temps, hiding the electric bill from your wife.  When it comes to cutting the plants down and trimming the buds its going to SMELLLLLLLL so bad!

The list just goes on...
