In addition to needing the right conditions – and, of course, the right seeds – you also need to have an appropriate environment to actually find success in your growing journey.
3 Great Reasons to Grow Your Own Cannabis
We suggest basing the number of plants you’ll be growing on the size of the closet you’ll be growing them in, as you definitely don’t want to overload the area. You also want to be sure that you have enough room to accommodate your equipment, including grow lights and ventilation.
While you could simply set up a fan in the space, if you’re serious about getting great yields and you want to ensure the best possible results, investing in a ventilation system is highly recommended. A system that features entrance and exit vents, will allow fresh air to flow in, and stale air and heat to flow out. Examples of some reliable, high-quality ventilation systems include:
Check on your marijuana plants at least two times a day to see how they’re doing. Make sure that they receive sufficient light and air inside the closet. As your plant begins to tower from the container, check if the top part feels warm at the touch of your hand, especially if you are using sources of light other than LED. Too much heat may damage your crop. As will too much moisture. So, you always need to balance between humidity and warmth in the closet. When the time comes, collect the buds and prepare to cure them. If you collect a more significant amount of weed, use a glass jar to stock it. Avoid keeping weed in plastic containers as this may affect your weed in negative ways.
You want to grow weed but you don’t live separately from your parents or perhaps for any other reason you want to keep your plant a little secret. You can always grow weed in your closet. You might think that’s impossible, but with a little effort, it’s manageable and doable.
Setting up the lights is a very important step. The grow lights you install in your closet are going to be the only source of light your plants are going to receive, so it’s really important that you do this part right. It’s not going to work if you keep your green pal in the dark.
LEDs will also help you deliver more high-quality yields than other lighting solutions.
Converting Your Closet Into a Grow Room
#4: Controlling your plants
There are several options for grow lights, although it’s best to get LED lights. The more plants you put in your closet, the more lights you’ll need to install in the upper part of the closet. LED lights are inexpensive and fairly easy to install; they are appropriate for growing weed from seedling to yielding. LEDs are a preferred source of light as they don’t emit too much heat. If you use other types of light you’ll have to be extra cautious not to overheat your cannabis plant.
Growing weed in your closet sounds like a super secretive activity to do, so treat it like one. If you don’t want your secret out of the closet, keep tight-lipped. If you opt for a closet grow, you opt for a very limited space that needs to be converted into a tiny control room where your plant can thrive and flower.
Mission Possible: Growing Weed in Your Closet
If you are growing a small number of plants it would help if you can circulate the air in the room where your grow closet is. Use fans and open the windows frequently. If you still notice a hint of a strange smell in the air, you can try to set up a small fan inside the closet.
Your limited space of choice could be a closet, a cupboard, or even an old wardrobe you are no longer using. When you choose your dark, growing spot you still need to equip it just like you would a normal grow room. For some elements of your equipment, you can, of course, improvise. Before you start, think of how you can set up artificial lights or how you can handle smell management. You may not be able to install real ventilation as your closet might be too small, so perhaps you’ll want to bring a single oscillating fan in the room where the closet is, or just try if odor neutralizers help. You also have to adjust the room temperature so that it soothes your plant. Not too warm. Not too cold.
