My simple indoor grow room in a room

    I thought I would share my technique, I like to build a grow room within a room, I make the wooden structure and then partition it with 1/3 for vegging and mother plants and the remaining 2/3 IMAG1305.jpg IMAG1307.jpg IMAG1338.jpg IMAG1538.jpg is the flower room.

    I make each section its own environment, using individual intakes, exhaust and circulation fans.

    I start off with 6 seedlings and choose the best 3 to make mother's from and flower the other 3. After 4 months I take 12 - 18 clones from 1 mother, after a month when the clones are moved into vegging room I move that mother to the flowering room. after 2 weeks vegging those clones I will take the next set of clones from the second mother, and move the original clones into the flowering room.

    I do this until the last set of clones and then take away the partition between the 2 "rooms" for the last batch.

    This gives me 3 crops a year as well as 6 Christmas trees.

    After the final harvest I tear down the room in 1 day and look for another house to rent. IMAG1305.jpg

    I grow in a room in a room too but bought the house 14 years ago and that's a lot easier. Plants from my first house moved in with us.

    :peace:

    Th
    Lol, that awesome and definitely a lot easier, I find it less conspicuous to just keep moving, I'm never in a place long enough for people to wonder what I'm doing.

    A few years back I was renting a place and got evicted with only a weeks notice due to construction, luckily I only had started and my 6 plants were about 30cm tall, so my girlfriend and I covered them in black dustbin bags to transport to the new house, on the way there I decided to open the sun roof in my car and it literally pulled all the bags off the plants, and out the sun roof, there I was driving on a major road with a car full of plants and no way to cover them, luckily we were about 2km away and we made it there with no problems, that was an exciting trip :bigjoint:

    Hi Papajohn, no problem, here you go..

    I measure the room and leave a half metre gap all round, this is the size the grow room will be. I then remove the doors of the cupboards (just makes it easier when the grow room is setup) to use one side for supplies and one for the clones.

    Depending on the thickness of the wood I get between 30-50 pieces to make the frame. A 15m roll of panda film will usually cover both rooms. I cover the top of the veg room as well to prevent any light going into the flower room.

    The rest is

    3 large adjust a wing reflectors
    2x 20w intake fans
    2x 18w circulation fans
    2x 62w extraction fans and ducting
    2x 85W CFL
    2x 400w mh bulbs and ballast
    1x 600w hps bulb and ballast
    10x yo-yo hangers
    2x timers

    And 2x2' 16w fluorescent tubes for the clones.

    This setup only draws 1802w in total and is fine for the rooms plug, which has a 20A capacity.

    I use 1 of the 400w mh and both the cfl in the veg room and the other 400w mh and 600w hps in the flower room.

    Hope I got everything :eyesmoke:

    So I run near 1800watts at my indoor as well here in Northern California.
    PGE charges me 36 cents per kw hour...so about $7.32 per 12 hour run x about 70 days in flower or about $512.40 cost of voltage
    I run 2 flood tables(hydro set up)plant count about 26 there abouts,SCROG
    Yield is about 2 or so pounds.
    Around here the value is about 2.57gram
    and a shit load more weed than I can smoke up!

    Very nice!! On my side of the world if I convert the currency, I'm spending $261 for the 70day period, that's $0.2 per gram spent, but the sale value is around $8 a gram here, also yielding around 2 pounds per crop.

    Is that 4mx5m? if it is, with that space I would double everything, I grew outdoors for many years and only really played around with single plants indoors but once I'd got the hang of it and was seeing such positive results I decided to focus mainly on the indoor, I still have a few outdoor plants on the go each year but nothing to special, this is my local Durban poison outdoor at the moment IMAG0935.jpg

    Well I'd like to build a grow room within a room just like what Sammo has,I'd be doing the framing with 1x4 lumber for support staple with large card board panels painted with white latex paint for the reflective panel.

    Such a nice looking crop you got there :mrgreen:
    The price here fluctuates as well, in the "dry" season can push it up to $10

    I think fandango means you gonna be doing hydro or soil? it took me a good 3 years and lots of failed attempts before I really started winning with my indoor, and I am by no means an expert. at first I practiced with only a 75w mh and home made reflector in IMAG0103.jpg a cupboard then got a 250w and moved into the roof and once I knew I was winning, invested in the larger setup and full room I started with the same organic soil combination I used outdoors but lately I've been using Jiffy pellets that I expand and then break up and mix with perlite and organic lime, I know it sound funny buy I'm getting excellent results so I'm sticking to it

    As you see papa I started off really simple a small light and one fan and once it worked I just kept upgrading, one thing that really helped was the hygrometer
