Next, you need to choose the right lighting system. There are three artificial light sources to choose from, these are:

Marijuana plants require three nutrients in large volumes in order to be healthy. These are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, so you must do what you can to ensure they receive adequate levels of each. Fortunately, you can buy ready-made fertilizer from the local marijuana dispensary containing all of the necessary nutrients and in the correct ratios.

You can grow/harvest any time of the year

Once again, if you grow your cannabis outdoors, you are restricted to the seasons that provide adequate lighting and heat. Depending on where you live, this will most likely mean you won’t be able to ensure a year round harvest; however, this is entirely possible with a garden shed grow room.

As you know, cannabis is big business these days. All it takes is one trip to the cannabis dispensary and you’ll be greeted with an amazing variety of marijuana strains as well as other various products such as vape oils, CBD lotions, and even THC gummy bears.

Pick your climate controls and monitors

Using your garden shed as a grow room is ideal for those who don’t want their grow space to encroach on their living area. This means you can focus on creating the perfect conditions for your plants rather than having to compromise due to issues that arise from living in the same area, such as heating and humidity.

No matter what your legal plant limit is, this tent should be able to handle it. At 80” for the main grow chamber, height is not a problem, and just about any cultivar can be propagated successfully under this build. With a 630w 3100k CMH fixture, this room can be used for both vegetative and flowering stages.

The “Standard Grow” is designed to be a fully comprehensive cannabis cultivation and propagation system, offering an all-inclusive perpetual grow space packed into a 4×5’ build. For just under $1,000, you get a 3-chambered, 3-light tent with a full air filtration system, automation and metering included.

All of the hardware used for each project can be ordered online or bought at a local hardware store or grow shop.

Grow room components:

With this system, cool air will enter through the bottom of the tent, and warm air will be scrubbed as it leaves the top of the tent. The 6” clip-on fan should be placed just above canopy level on the back-left pole to help circulate air evenly as the plants mature.

LED lights work well in this environment because they produce very little heat. Although filtration for a grow of this size is not necessary, those who wish to grow in a more confined space should consider opting for the intake fan and thermometer/hydrometer. This will help to both increase air circulation and provide some fundamental metrics for maintaining a healthy environment for the plants.

The 6” exhaust kit may either be fastened on the top of the left tent or on the bottom-right, each option directing air through the carbon filter and out of the top port. This room receives two 6” clip-on fans—the first will be fastened to the top-right support beam of the tent to help move warm air towards the exhaust. The second fan can be placed on the back-left corner to follow the canopy as it rises.

Supply list:

With the tent height maxing out at 48”, plants grown in this space should not exceed 24” in height and we recommend using dwarf, indica, and auto-flowering varieties for best results.

The Nano Grow is designed to be the most budget friendly and least technical design. This build focuses on trimming down the necessary components to eliminate any superfluous items. While the essentials will cost you just under $120, you can add an optional inline fan and thermometer/hydrometer for just a bit more.
