It’s no secret that cannabis creates an unmistakable odor, and while that smell might be delightful to your nose, it can instantly blow your stealth closet growing operation. In order to combat the problem, you’re going to want to invest in air purification for your closet.
How do you turn a closet into a weed “farm”?
When you’re growing weed in a closet, grow medium options are the same as they would be when growing anywhere else. A small-scale hydroponic system is one option, which offers easy to maintain irrigation and provides better control; plus, plants tend to grow faster with hydroponic systems.
Even more budget-friendly, however, is using a closet as your designated “farm”. Unlike an outdoor garden or a greenhouse, a closet doesn’t require a lot of space or supplies; hence, growing in a closet is a more economical option.
Seeds or Plants
Your first closet grow can be a little intimidating; however, with the right supplies, set-up, and patience, you should be able to successfully cultivate your very own ganja under the radar of prying eyes (and noses).
#5: Preparing for harvest
If you want extra control over the growing process, consider using a small hydroponic system. Using hydroponics for your weed amplifies the growth process, however, requires close supervision of the ph and ppm levels, in which case you may need additional tools to keep track of those values. It may be more costly to purchase hydroponics over setting up a soil container, however.
You can grow as many plants as you like and this would also depend on the space of your closet. The bigger the closet the more plants you can grow. Although, the more plants you grow, the greater the responsibility.
#4: Controlling your plants
Converting Your Closet Into a Grow Room
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.
LEDs will also help you deliver more high-quality yields than other lighting solutions.

Mission Possible: Growing Weed in Your Closet
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.
Regardless of where you do your indoor growing, you can make use of the same grow medium options. If you are growing in soil containers, pay attention to how much water and nutrients you use for your cannabis plant. Overwatering and overfeeding are some of the most common growing mistakes that even experienced gardeners make. Too much water may cause the plant’s roots to decay, so treat your cannabis plant as you would treat a gentler flower.
