Hi all,
I am looking for a good closet to grow automatic weed indoor. I am not looking for the cheapest, I want something that works well and ideally that comes in one box with all you need in it. Can someone recommend a website that sells that and delivers in Europe ?
Thanks guys!
Peace
R

Hi Romain,

I think you don't need to buy the best brand of grow-tent, a less expensive brand will do the job just as well. I kept a 199€ 120x120cm tent for 7 years before the ziplock started to break and I was very indelicate with it. With just a bit more care, a bit tournesol-oil on a paintbrush over the ziplocks I could have kept her a few years longer.


In order for you to avoid the time-consuming, nail biting mistakes that any beginner grower makes, I suggest you have a look at the old 90's dutch video "K2 grow" (old famous widow/hindu nose-rape cross, that used to be very popular among cash-croppers)
Here is the link
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC4AzhRa_Wk

If you take 120x120cm, the standard size, get it in a KIT with a 600w HPS, a 600m3/h silent exhaust fan, a 600m3/h carbon filter, some yoyos for raising the lamp, and a 2x55w neon for the germinating/early vegetative phase.
I also suggest you make yourself a wood crate with 2 holes that you glue to the window, like the guy builds in the video. It allows your plants to breath without being subject to temperature changes :
The hot air ducting is plugged to the upper crate-hole and another piece of ducting plugged to the bottom hole goes back to the bottom of the tent (like a loop).

If you have any question, feel free to ask or PM

Thanks very much for that answer Prov. To be honest I was looking into those now https://www.g-tools.nl/fr/ which is the total opposite of a cheap and homemade option. I want treat myself I think. Anyway when the time to pay will come I might change my mind and go for an homemade option! :)
Bonne journée
Romain

Hi Romain

Indeed, these cabinets look great and indeed they come with the price.
But they're more discreet.
Have you watched the video ?
Can you tell us a bit more about the system you're planning to grow them in ?
Bonne journée à toi bro

Hey, yes I've watched the video and everything else I could find too :) The brown one is pretty discreet I think looking a bit old fashion. Their led lights are very good I think and if anyone go for one of their closet should spend the extra 500 to get the led light. What do you mean by the system I plan to grow them in ? If you meant the plants, I will go for Pure power plant auto, Northern light auto and White Diesel haze auto probably. And maybe a fourth one if there is space for it. Always Sensi Seeds because they are the best :)

Re, sorry I just understood your question now :/ I'm not sure, probably the 1m2. I'm moving to a new place in a couple of month, so I'll buy it then. I will post pictures.
Bonne journée.

Hi Romain

So if I make a recap, you'll be growing
-1m2
-LED lights
-Autos

Will you be doing hydroponics or soil ?

I'm all for the LED lights. They work really well, specially during summer time.
Now for the autos, I really don't get the point of growing autos indoor.
They take just as long to grow as normal strains, they yield bad, and they need 18h of light for a decent harvest instead of 12.
Power Plant is a great strain, Northern Lights too, White Diesel should be good (never tried though). Can you tell us why you're into autoflowering indoors ?

That is a very valid point IMO.

Hi Prov,

I choose the easiest solution.

I will go for autos indoor because they are easier to grow. I grow regular (feminized) outdoor at the moment but mother nature is doing everything, easy ! And next week I'm going to sow a few autos out there too so I can have a little smoke this summer, but again I will let mother nature do everything. Mid to end of April its the good time for those (i live close to the 35th parallel). Actually the 23rd and the 30th of April this year are perfect days to sow flowers according to moon calendar. Now regular indoor demand a bit more work right ?

Beside this a huge yield is not what I am looking for here, the one and only goal for my gardening job is for me to stay as far as possible from black market and all the sh*t that goes with it.

I am looking into hydroponics because soil is, again, more work :) Clay balls look like the easiest medium once your plants have germinated in rock wool cubes. It's light, reusable and clean, so sounds perfect to avoid a lot of mess like bringing in soil and changing it, etc...

Happy easter!

Hello rom1

I wish you the best for your indoor and outdoor crop.
I believe with all the money you invested in this super stealth closet, you'll come back to photoperiod strains very soon but one needs to learn and practice to move forward.

Keep us updated ok ?
See you

Prov

Hey Prov,

Thanks for your help and advice. You have me thinking now...

My main concern in growing photoperiods in a closet is to change light time too late and end up with plants pushing up the ceiling ! My first grow a couple years ago was an indica strain (purple bud) in a green house , those plants were suppose to be small but by the end of summer they had reach the ceiling.

So I guess you are growing photoperiods indoor right ? What will you say is the most difficult part ? And what is the most important thing to do/know ?

Also, closet (bonanza) inside height is around 1,70m, add and EB and Flow table you are left with 1,30m. I take off 30cm for the light at the top to round it up at 1m of usable height for the plant itself. Do you reckon it's enough to grow decent photoperiods ?

Actually, Normal plants are much better suited to grows where height is a constraint. This is because you can train them however you like, whereas autos should be left undisturbed.

Google the Screen of Green (ScrOG) technique. Using this method, you can basically have a very even canopy at the height of your choice.

There isn't much of a difference between growing normal plants as opposed to autos. If anything, autos are more difficult to get right in my opinion, at least in certain aspects.
Cheers
