First post here so go easy
So im pretty new to growing, I have infact completed one grow prior to this. Had a situation where a friend needed somewhere to keep his equipment and helped me out with a small 1.2 x 1.2 grow tent with a DWC system in. He came round and helped every other week to give advice and help, provided the nutrients and clones too.
Unfortunately he is no longer able to help and has most of his equipment back and I can no longer use the same area as i had before as it was way to much work keeping it hidden from family and friends!
I had a think and remembered we had a walk in cupboard that was awkward to get too, unused and spacious.
The dimensions are 110cm x 90cm with a height of 190cm. The buckets take up 40m in height, I hope that will be enough room!
So ive modified the DWC system and got rid of one of the buckets (had one outside the tent previously as it was easier to control temps). Ive still got my friends 8" fan on a voltage adjuster, filter and ducting so ive set that up in the meantime nice and stealthy in the loft. Its fairly quiet and nobody would ever know it was there so long as i get the intake and extraction right!
Currently ive got it setup so the fan extracts air into the filter, not ideal but i would lose a lot of space if i had it inside that area, will this work?
Would I get away with a couple of small passive intakes on the bottom of the door? Other options include having a small intake sat uptop in the attic (as far away from the extraction as possible) with long ducting going to the bottom of the room. Regardless of what I do ill need to replace the fan and filter and have no idea what to get! I need it to be as quiet as possible and would rather a large fan like an 8" one and turn it down to a third of its power than a smaller one. Any recommendations?
Lighting ive decided to go LED as I want it to run efficiently and quietly, hoping they will be much more efficient than a traditional 600w bulb alongside another fan just to cool it! Electric bill was huuuuge and my partner is paranoid that we will get caught because of it.
The LEDs I went for im purchasing of @Forest who referred me to this forum
They feature 2 x 2 quantum boards with lm561c bulbs 250w 3000k. Awaiting the first one and will purchase the second soon hopefully Will post some pics once there up.
£500 is a hell of a lot on an investment, and yet to get a fan and filter
