Storage Cabinet Greenhouse?
    #11321766 - 10/26/09 12:52 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

How feasible would it be to use this storage cabinet as a stealth greenhouse?

I was thinking of getting a coolmist and piping it in from the top via a single pvc length running from top to bottom with branches drilled with holes on each shelf level.  I could also get some plastic sheeting from Lowes and custom fit each shelf with it. 

2 problems from the start.  The first is that I'm not quite sure what the best method is for securing the sheeting to the cabinet.  I guess I'd also have to figure out how to make a plastic doorway/flaps.

The second is lighting.  Maybe I could have the lights for each level on the other side of the plastic sheeting.


Ideas would be welcome.  This is the best idea of come up with as a stealth greenhouse that I can lock.

Yeah, I know, I've been shopping greenhouses.  But they aren't stealth, and can't lock.

Good point, but my mono's I'm not worried about.  I'm really after a greenhouse to do casings, specifically pan cyan's and to case random jars that don't go into my tubs.  I can't be around to fan, etc so some options are out for me.  And having a whole buttload of SGFC's isn't really an option since I have monotubs to worry about.

Plexiglass shelves and a flouro in the back have a space that would have accomadate a tray have a coolmist and pump the ultrasonic in maybe some large 3-4 inch holes stuffed with polyfill to help with the FAE:shrug:

On another note, I'm doing this because I am probably going to end up renting a house soon.  It's less hassle than having apartment personnel always about, but I wanna be certain that I can ward of curiosity.  The lock accounts for some of that, and the fact that a storage cabinet wouldn't look out of place in my bedroom.

I have a decent hand at wood working minor things so I might build a small box to enclose the humidifier with a port hole for the pvc pipe.  Then I could stain it, and it would be as easy as setting the box on top of the pvc atop the cabinet and connecting it. I could place the humidifier internally I guess and work it that way if not.

Sorry TK, I didn't catch all of that.  So you're saying replace the shelves of the cabinet with plexiglass?  I'd have to brace it somehow to support the weight eh?  And you don't think just the coolmist would provide enough FAE for the whole thing?

No but that coupled with the ultra and adequete airholes will.  I dont even think you would need to replace the shelves with plexi just put the light vertical in the back

Cool, the whole reason I mentioned the light really was because I didn't know if it would be a fire hazard in the same container as the humidity.  You know, this thing is pretty much all plastic or some crap so I might not need plastic sheeting to protect from the water just maybe something to collect all the pooled water at the bottom?  So if I don't install plastic sheeting all around, then should I just install a little bit surrounding the light for safety?


Oh and suggestions for how to secure the plastic to the cabinet is still welcome.



Thanks for the help, I'll check back in in the morning.

No joke huh?  Lol, thx for pointing out the obvious. 

Would you forsee any problems with just letting the humidifiers go in there with no real sheeting except for a flap at the doors?  I guess I could fill the bottom layer with perlite

It's cool man, I was wondering if there would be any negative effects to the cabinet by just piping in a bunch of humidity all day.  Warping or flooding perhaps? 

Heh, yeah it's a dumb question but I figured I'd ask just to be sure.

an oz of prevention right?  i dont thinks its dumb like I said ive smoked and am stoned so im here to better help you out.  Are the racks metal?  I only see warping happening with wood.  Flooding not if you rig a tray at the bottom maybe with plastic to make sure the water drips into it

I'm pretty sure that it's all plastic so I guess no problem there.  I was gonna just pour perlite into the bottom compartment, but it's probably better to put a fitted tray at the bottom with perlite to take out and drain if necessary huh?  I was just worried about water getting around the tray and into the bottom. 

What do you think about if I install plastic on the sides of the cabinet in the bottom compartment and lead the plastic into the tray making it funnel water into it?  And of course I'll make sure I have enough holes in the shelves to lead the water downward and prevent pooling.

And do you think I should have 2 FAE holes per level?
