You need 1m x 8 wood beams for (A), 2m x 8 wooden beams for (B), and 1m x 2 or x 3 beams for (C). The amount of beams you need on top depends on the weight of your light fixture, exhaust fan, and carbon filter.

To build a grow tent, you will need wood, metal or plastic poles, and a plastic sheet.

5. Safety precautions: electricity and fire prevention

As you may know, light is vital for growing any kind of plants, including cannabis. Depending on the kind of light fixture you’re planning to use, you’ll need to make some adjustments so you can adjust the height of your light.

To start building your own indoor growing space you’ll need some basic materials and tools, some you might already have at home. You’ll need:

3. Building your own indoor grow step-by-step

A grow room fan is placed inside the grow room to create air movement above the canopy level, this not only allows the plants to cool down but also sways the plants around, promoting stronger branching that will be able to support the heavy buds that will develop throughout the flowering stage.

Momentarily discouraged, I quickly scrapped the idea of a dedicated room filled to the brim. I began with getting clear about my intentions; I wanted to inconspicuously and autonomously produce my medicine. This was a much more respectable and realistic goal, and one that I could embrace.

A fan speed controller and light timer are mounted on the outside of the fan room.

This had been a long-time dream of mine, and I fondly imagined my first harvest, curing my flowers to perfection, and collecting their resin for concentrates. I saw myself carefully journaling their progress, and eventually becoming an expert caretaker of myself and my marijuana garden.

On Craigslist I found a cabinet kit still in the box for only $35. It came in at 24″ L x 30″ W x 70″ H. Next, I purchased a 6″ inline fan for another $100. The fan combined with a 400 watt light and Cool Tube from a previous grow gave me something to design around.

Now that my fan room was set up, I allowed the exhaust to escape upward into a carbon filter. I mounted the filter inside a Rubbermaid tote to make the whole setup more discrete.

My inline fan with had 6″ opening (28 square inches) so I would need 56 square inch opening. I went with two louvered grills that were 5″ x 8″ which gave me 80 square inches – 30% for the louvers = 56 square inches. Perfect!

I chose a High Pressure Sodium bulb. Since these produce more light from the side(the long side as opposed to the plug and tip of the bulb), light coverage could be maximized by positioning them front to back. Some creativity was required to install the Cool Tube to keep my HPS bulb from becoming too hot.
