Veg: 85W 6500k CFL

For all those who are interested – you can find the initial post here: www.reddit.com/r/microgrowery/comments/158m58/so_this_is_it_my_pc_growcase/ (old account that I had to delete :/)

Case: Chieftec BA-01 Case

Intake: DIY Lighttrap (using 1x Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM fan)

Fan-Controller: Scythe Kaze Master Ace (this powered all the fans and gave me fan-control & temp-readings)

*PROBLEM: Most grow boxes on the market come with one big expensive light, but plants benefit from different light colors during different stages of development. During vegetative stage plants like lights that offer a color temperature of 6500 Kelvin, this color is bright white and best represents summer light. During flowering stage they like color temperature of 2700 Kelvin which represent fall light which along with the right light cycle tells plants it’s time to flower.
*SOLUTION: Two sets of four lights. One set of four 6500K bulbs for vegetative stage and one set of four 2700K bulbs for flowering stage. By having four smaller lights equal to one big bulb, replacing the inevitable blown bulb is cheaper and your plants will never be completely without light. If a bulb blows just run to Wal-Mart and buy a replacement for a few bucks as apposed to ordering one of those big expensive Enviro or HPS bulbs while your plants die in the dark.

*PROBLEM: All PC grow cases on the market today try to impress you with there high priced hydroponics grow systems. Hydroponics is a great way to grow plants but not in such a small area. The smaller the hydro tank the harder it is to keep pH levels balanced and improperly balanced pH can kill a plant in days and even slightly off pH levels can dramatically affect yield.
*SOLUTION: For a grow of this size soil is the only way to go and offers much less complication. If you opt for the additional Fox Farm Soil and Fertilizer Nutrient Pack you’ll receive Fox Farm soil and organic fertilizers for not only the vegetative stage but also the flowering stage to help you grow completely organic healthy high yield plants.

Consider the right type of food according to your plant’s growth stage. This is because vegging plants require a different set of nutrients compared to flowering plants.

One fan must blow fresh and cool air into the case while another one removes stale and old air out. Make sure that you keep all electrical cords out of the way and neatly secured all the time.

Now that the PC case is wide open, you may now see how large the area is and imagine how to fit different components of your grow box. Also, you must consider growing very small strains only. You might want to check out autoflowering cannabis strains as these plants are often very small growing only up to 40 cm tall. This is the perfect size for a plant to grow inside a PC grow box.

Ensure that the sides, top, and bottom of the case is sealed and properly covered. The light must not escape from the box as you need to keep light reflected in the plant. Use packaging tape or duct tape to seal everything.

Consider autoflowering cannabis strains

The following tips should help you grow a healthy, high-yielding cannabis plant inside a PC grow box.

Remove all the components inside the case including wires, lights, fans, switches, drives, and the motherboard. Free up the room as much as possible. Most PC tower cases have a section for the power supply which is usually a rack-type section. You can use this to hold your lighting and fan. When you’re done removing all the components, wipe the area clean using water and soap. Check the interior part of the case for rust, corrosion, molds, mildew, or any litter. Everything must be clean and tidy as much as possible.

Autoflowering cannabis strains are small and will flower quicker compared to other cannabis. Autoflowering strains are also available in recreational, medicinal, high CBD, and high THC strains.

Make sure that all the sides of the case/box are properly sealed and covered

A large growing space is very costly to maintain whereas a small space like a PC grow box will let you grow cannabis minus any worries about space, time, effort, and money. A small space is also easier to clean and maintain and is less likely to be a target of pests and molds.

No one would suspect you’re growing cannabis inside a PC case! You can hide a PC case anywhere in your home, garage, storage area, attic, or basement. Just make sure no one suspects and no one will use the PC case you transformed into a cannabis growing box.
