Micro grow setup

28 posts in this topic

Hi guys !

Here is my proposed grow space for my first grow. Unfortunately I have to go for a stealth grow but have seen some amazing results on here, Alot of them in even smaller spaces than mine !!

Anyway I have converted an old set of ikea drawers measuring roughly 1.8 x 1.5 x 1.3 ft.

Its a simple setup but hopefully I can work with it. I will be using a 200 watt dual spec CFL and using pc fans for ventilation.

I started out in a similar size space and 125w CFL, you can achieve fine micro results with that setup.

Just train your plants to make best use of the light in that space. :)

I've been enjoying this so far, good luck fella :)

How do dealing with the oul reek?

Ive been giving that a read and thats what made me decide f*ck ill give it a bash ! I will be making a cabron filter before I start any growing I also have a few extra fans I can set up incase the pc fan struggles to pull the air through it.

What kind of resuts did you get if you dont mind me asking and would you recommend any strains ? I have been researching and researching training methods so I will hopefully be able to make the best of the space I have :chef:

Might be where I am going wrong. When I try to upload the pictures it says I have used all my available space even though I havnt actually uploaded any.

having two small grow areas might be the best option so you can have a bonsai mother and grow short clones in the flowering cabinet.

I'm not sure if you'll be able to extract the heat fast enough with just PC fans, or if they will push the air through carbon. good luck!
