Space bucket thoughts?

Has anyone made a space bucket if so are they any good ?? I been researching found it for people who are bit more discreet about it but want to keep growing even through winter. 

 

 

 

Would it be worth making one for a auto plant?

I loves me a space bucket.  But I'll warn you this.  You will end up paying more to build one than buying a teeny tent, lamp, fan and filter.  Unless you live in a workshop kitted out for building space buckets.  By the time you have bought, tape, PC fans, cobbled a charcoal filter, researched ghetto lights, bought components, new hack saw blades, wheres my Stanley knife. More tape.

 

Flash report!  Light leak! Light leak!

 

More tape purchased the next day.

Blah blah.

 

Just buy a teeny tent fan and filter.

 

Choose your lamp.

 

Far more cost effective and less wasteful I feel.  Dont get me wrong, I love the concept as much as I do p clips and cable ties. But......

Meh.

What you aiming for? if its stealth your after then a pc or a purpose built cupboard would be the steathier route. Can't imagine it's easy to disguise cables and fans coming away from a bucket in the home. The shed yeah i see the attraction but not in the home. 

 

Plenty of info here for cupboards and pc's, hidden grows and such. You can still incorp what you had in mind for the bucket but into something easier to work with.
