What would you do with a 6'X7' closet?
    #2099511 - 11/13/03 12:56 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I would like to convert my closet into a grow room its 6 feet wide by 7 feet long and about 7 feet tall and I whatever needs to be done to make it as conducive to growing as possible. I was thinking of setting up shelving units on the side walls three rows tall on each side running the full 7 foot length of the closet. Probably use as many 24"X18"X12" containers as could fit all with casings. I would like to create a room that has a high enough humidity that the containers that I will be using wont need lids (unless thats a bad idea?) and I would like to find some sort of air filtration that would work for that large of an area. If you know of any particular products I would appreciate it.

You would need a shitload of humidity and your room would probably get fucked up. It's like in your bathroom, the paint will begin to peel after awhile and mold will begin to grow. So I don't know how you would do this.

If your planning on shelving units why not just cover the drawers with plastic wrap?

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

Keeping the whole room that humid would be really hard, and as MycoCat said - would just beg mold to move in. Plus, by having all of your cakes/cases in the same air one nasty case of contamination could wipe out the whole closet, or, at the very least cause you a major headache.

I think it might be more wise to set up 1/2 of the closet with heating pad or double container based incubators. The other half of the room could be an array of PMPs. You could get a few of those dualie air pumps and have each one drive two PMPs.

The three big advantages of this setup would be:

1. You can build it as you have money - just add a new pod when you can.
2. If a pod gets contaminated just take it out, clean it up good and you don't have to worry about the rest of your grow
3. You can run controlled experiments and report back the results to us! ;-)

Check this out, http://cactusgarden.net/ , Diploid had a killer set up with this.  Thats what i'd do with a big ass closet.  I'm ordering one myself. Go for it  :thumbup:

There's a lot of potential in that much space, but building as many PMPs to take advantage of it would be incredibly time consuming. I would suggest copying Faht's Setup pretty closely, but it might be advantageous to add some of the features from Diploid's Setup. The greenhouses can be found here.

That place is cheaper than cactus garden. It's 42 bucks there plus 19 bucks shipping

2 of the 4 teir greenhouse being fed by a humidifier like this:

http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Hunter_33200

The more I think about it, it seems like it could be reasonable to connect the two greenhouses together and because it has a humidistat it would be pretty easy to maintain good humidity. Are there any drawbacks to having a humidifier less than 6" or so of growing casings? Ive got some florescent lights that I could put up. It would make a nice start.

Poor Man's Pod

How much money are you looking to spend? That's the most important thing to determine before you do anything.
