It may take several tries before you are finally able to have a successful harvest. It requires attention and care if you want to achieve the best outcomes. Want to know how to build a grow room? You came to the right place! Keep on reading and we’ll let you know what to do.

Pick a Location

The first thing that you need to do is to decide on where exactly the grow room will be located, which will have a direct impact on your success. The location should be discreet and one where you will have a complete control of the process. Because of the importance of privacy and security, the basement is one of the most popular choices. To add, the right location of a grow room is where it will have easy access to the resources that will be needed for the marijuana to grow. Look for a location where you can access water, electricity, and ventilation, among others. Once you have finally chosen the perfect location, the next thing to do is to prepare the place. Make sure that it is free of anything that could contaminate the plant or disrupt their growth.

Start Building

At this point, you have to set up the actual structure where the marijuana will be planted. Often, it exists in the form a grow tent that is already built and ready to be erected. A cupboard or a closet will also be an excellent choice. If you are using a bigger space or a full room setup, such as in the photo above, you have to cover the walls and the ceilings to make it lightproof. Ideally, the marijuana needs 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness for its growth, so light-proofing is necessary. There should be no light getting inside, which is also one reason why a lot of people opt to plant marijuana in their basements. Aside from being lightproof, the space also needs to be airtight. While ventilation is necessary, outside air can be a risk because of your lack of control. Also, being airtight means that the odor will be restricted, which is especially important if you want to be discreet. As for the walls and the ceiling, it is important that you use the right reflective material, which will help to save energy. Some of the best materials that can be considered are Foylon, Mylar, and even flat white paint.

Light it Up

Once the space has been covered, the next important consideration will be lighting. The lighting should be installed in such a way that it will be easy to control, noting the fact that marijuana may have varying light needs depending on its stage of growth and the viparspectra 450w that will be used. For most of the contemporary cannabis growers, there are three types of lights that are commonly used when setting up a grow room – LED, CFL, and HID. Among these, HIDs are the preferred choice by many growers. Viparspectra 600w is also popular, especially for those who are thinking about energy-efficiency. When choosing best led grow lights on the market, you also have to check the size relative to the size of the plant. Plus, make sure that the chains and the hooks are strong enough to support the light. Make sure that the height of the light can be adjusted as you will need to change its position during the different stages of the growth of marijuana.

Install an Air Exchange System

Aside from light, air is another essential element in the growth of cannabis. Therefore, you need an air exchange system to make sure that the plant receives the right amount of ventilation that will be important in maintaining its health. One equipment that you will need is an best CO2 regulator. This is the one responsible for drawing out stale air out of the grow room. You will also need to have an intake fan. As air leaves, it needs to be replaced with fresh and clean air, which is possible by installing the right intake fans. The power and size of the fans to use will depend on a number of factors, such as the size of the grow room and the heat that is generated by the best indoor heaters that you are using.

Set Up the Water Source

If you are going to build a large grow room and have multiple plants, watering through misting can be a tedious process. With this, it is also important to set up the water source. Therefore, the location of the grow room should be somewhere near a water source. In most cases, however, a water source setup is unnecessary. You can use a bucket and water the plants manually. Take note that overwatering should be avoided at all costs.

Install the Necessary Tools

To complete the set up of your grow room, there are some tools that you will need to have, which will also make it easy to monitor the environment and ensure the health of the plants. One of the most important is a thermometer, which will make it easy to ensure the right temperature. A best hygrometer, on the other hand, will be essential for being able to measure humidity in the grow room.

Plant and Wait for Harvest

Once the complete grow tents is ready, it is now time to plant marijuana and wait until harvest time. This is a complicated process for novices, but it is definitely doable. It will be covered in a different post since it is a topic that needs a more in-depth discussion. Remember, throughout the process of growing cannabis in the grow room, you need to be attentive and meticulous, making sure that the necessary adjustments are completed based on the needs of the plant.
