    Thinking of setting up a 12/12 from seed small box grow just for fun. I have a pc grow box I made several years ago but honestly it's made poorly and definitely doesn't keep the light contained.

    I'm looking at other options that are cheap, I have all the cfls/fans etc I just need a box. I keep seeing these sterilite/Rubbermaid container grows and I'm wondering how safe they are? I have this vision of the plastic melting in my head.

    i know I could build a wooden box but that requires a saw and drilling which I don't have access to right now

    IKEA and home depot have small storage cabs , plastic or wood about the size of a dresser, those make great grow boxes

    I've been growing in a 50 gallon Rubbermaid for a long time! The only downside i have found is when the plants get huge it gets to be a pain in the ass to fill and change the resevoir.
    Besides that.. I'd say do it!

    Disregard.. lol I misunderstood

    Sounds like fun though!

    stay smokin'

    I built my own plywood box. Pc fan for exhaust and 6 cfl.lights. it measures 2ft wide 2ft deep x3 ft tall. Works freaking awesome 20161020_081324.jpg 20161020_081314.jpg 20161215_075209.jpg

    I have a space setup that I just made very close to these dimensions, do you flower in that cab and if so what can you pull outta that thing?
