Grow Room Setup For Weed
Proper grow room setup includes good ventilation and is vital for a successful grow room. Without humidity control plants will not perform well and become susceptible to mildew and other diseases. Without proper temperature control buds will not be hard, lack potency and produce less.
Many growers focus on lighting and forget all that heat needs to be dealt with. Take this into account before you set your grow room up. No matter what set up you choose air must get in and out. It is relatively easy to do this with a grow tent or grow box but it can be a challenge for a closet grow.
You will need at least two fans to grow weed properly. Depending on your set up and your local climate you may need to increase or lower humidity with a dehumidifier/humidifier.
You will need an exhaust fan to remove the heat from your lights and to remove excess humidity. You will want to hook a carbon filter to this fan to help control odors.
You will also need one for air circulation in your grow room or tent. It needs to keep air circulating though the leaves to prevent disease and to create sturdier branches.
If you are planning a large or commercial grow a sealed grow room with AC and CO2 will allow you to control your grow room perfectly and maximize yields.

Digital ballasts offer growers several important advantages over magnetic ballasts. First they give you up to 30% more light from your bulbs. Dimmable digital ballasts give you the ability to run a single bulb at different wattages and tailor your lighting to your grow. Finally they give off much less heat than magnetic ballasts which […]
Buying a grow tent is a great way to set up an enclosed grow space in a larger room for your plants because you can control the environment and even run a different lighting schedule. You also only have to light and maintain a smaller area, namely the spot where your grow is. If you […]
Sometimes when demand exceeds supply it’s time to step up your game and increase production and so I needed to set up a new grow closet. I call it my super closet, partly because it’s bigger than my other grow closet and partly because I am hoping for super harvests. I learned how to grow […]
