grow room
    #2439140 - 03/16/04 02:00 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

aight, so my grow room is complete. its 6'*5'*6'. i have the lights on via a timer. i have a thermometer/humidity meter. an electric oil heater with a thermostat and a cool mist humidifier that has an auto shut off just above 90%, so i plan on using casings.

My question that remains, is do i need air circulation? and if so what?

i am planing on installing a hepa filter air intake, but I'm not sure where to put the out take.


thanks for your inputs
J. P. Dillinger

The air circulation system you need will depend on how intensively you're using the room, if you see what i mean (i.e. the space between casings, how many casings in total, the size of the space in the middle of the room). The oil heater should supply some air circulation via convection if it's on alot, and if you have a hepa intake that'll be fine i would imagine. If you used a warm air humidifier, that would increase convection in the room as well. I wouldn't have thought that that an outtake would be neccessary, but my experience with growrooms is limited. If you wanted to be sure, something modest (a small fan) with ducted inputs at as low a level as possible, in order to suck out the CO2 laden air at the bottom, might be best.

hope this helps a little

I did a lot of research on plant grow-boxes. Most of the plant-related stuff doesn't apply, but my suggestion would be to install a hepa filter in the wall near your shrooms with a fan blowing in, and an OUTgoing duct with filter on the FLOOR. That way you aren't pumping out your heat, and you are pumping out your co2. I suggest using a fan on the input only. This is because if you create a negative pressure (like that created by an outgoing fan) then any cracks in your room will draw in air and contams. Keeping a positive pressure (incoming fan) will make sure nothing gets in except through the filter.

the cool thing about oil heaters are they dont have open flame or anything like that....i can touch it bare-hand...and not get a burn...but the room stays a steady 86/

is the oil pretty easy to buy (i.e. widely stocked) and is it expensive?
