What You Need to Do to Set Up a Grow Room in Your Home

Posted by on March 31, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Growing your marijuana plants indoors requires proper planning and investment. Indoor marijuana plants need special care and monitoring. You need to set a grow room in your home and need various tools and supplies to enable seed germination and plant growth. But once you get the space set up for indoor growth, the rewards are bountiful and worth the effort and cost. The way you set up your growing space goes a long way in determining the quality of your final yield. Setting up your own grow room gives you the full power to influence all the factors that go into growing healthy herbs. Those factors include temperature, nutrition, lights, humidity, water, as well as, ventilation. Thus, you don’t have to wait for the right season and temperature when you have your own grow room at home.

Here is what you need to do to set up a grow room in your home.

Choose the Space for Grow Room:

The first step to set up your grow room is to find space for it. You must have an idea of the number of plants you want to grow and the growing style you intend to use. Nine fairly sized cannabis plants can be grown per square meter, and 25 tiny plants can be grown in the same area. You can set up a grow room in large cupboards, closets, and wardrobes at home. Otherwise, you can also buy a grow tent. However, there are a few things you must keep in mind about choosing the right growing space.

  • It should have ventilation
  • It should be light proof
  • It should be large enough for you to work in
  • It should have enough space for suspending grow lights.
  • It should be away from pests and insects.

Prepare the Walls:

It is recommended to line your grow room walls with reflective paper, which helps you take full advantage of light and space. Use mirrors or Panda Paper to line the walls of your grow room so that the light bounces back into the plants. The reflective material on the walls helps keep the light concentrated on the growing plants rather than being absorbed by other elements in the room.

Create the Right Climate:

Your grow room should be well ventilated to prevent cannabis plants from mildews and molds. Place a ventilation fan inside your grow room to pump out the hot air and keep the air moving. Humidity, temperature, and CO2 are also the key factors that should be considered for creating the right climate in your grow room. The tools that help manage the climate in your grow room include thermometer, dehumidifier, humidistat, CO2 drips, and light timer. Ideally, you should keep the grow room temperature between 18 and 26oC. Humidity should be kept between 30 and 50 percent. Learn more from i49 about creating the best climate for your grow room.

Suspend the Grow Lights:

There are several types of grow lights used for growing cannabis indoors, including LED, fluorescent, and high-pressure sodium (HPS). Once you have chosen the type of light you want, the next important step is their installation. It’s important to leave generous space above the lights for the airflow when you are hanging them in the grow room. Also, leave enough space between the ground and lights for your plants to grow. You may need to adjust your lights as your plants grow. Suspend your lights using adjustable chains. Grow lights should be hung 8 to 31 inches away from the plants. Lights with low wattage should be hung at least 8 inches away from the plants, while lights of 1000 watts should be kept 31 inches away from the plant shoots.
