Grow tent advice
    #769308 - 02/17/15 10:22 PM (2 years, 7 months ago)

Im limited on space so I'll be using a lighthouse 2.5ft W x 1.5ft D x 3ft H 11.2 cuft total and 4sqft floor. A Kessil H380 light and may add 2 H150's as well if needed.

Im looking into getting a fan and or possibly CO2 setup. Im a noob when it comes to tents. Looking for a fan that is quiet and sized correctly since this will be in my bedroom. This may seem like overkill but this is a hobby that I enjoy and willing to spend a little. Sadly I wont be growing cannabis but will be growing Cacti, orchids, Iris, bonsai, and starting vegetable for the spring

Any advice would be wonderful!! Thanks!!

Don't use a dimmer on a fan, they do not control the electricity the same way a fan control works. They sell them right next to each other in the hardware store. Otherwise a fan speed controller is $20 on ebay

You won't need much of a fan, probably a 4" inline fan would do it, but I'd upgrade to a larger size to run it on a lower speed and keep a little bit more power in reserve (also quieter) if needed in the summer. You can get insulated ducting that should help reduce the noise.

its still not good for it, yes they will spin it, but they won't give it the power it really needs.

With my grow are being only 11.2cuft all it needs to do is spin it. The 100cfm (labeled as) Its almost too much. I may lose the fan seal up the temp and grow my mushrooms on one side and have plants on the other.
