My first one plant grow cabinet

Recommended Posts

Morning ya'll

 

So my first grow cabinet is sorta done. I just need to change my exhaust fan and make the carbon filter. The fan I have is way too loud. I can hear it from my room and the cab is in the garage.

 

The lighting rig and reflector is DIY too, panda film FTW!

 

What do you guys think?

 

3 x 45w 6500K spiral CFL's (Veg)

23cm deskfan

87 CFM 120mm fan (need a quieter one)

Well Done CK! :-clap

 

Your cab is looking good!;)  I've had similar issues with noise from my exhaust fan. I'm working on a "cab in box" solution where my grow cab will be in a larger cabinet which is also insulated.

Shot man. I feel you on that venture. I was thinking, if I suspend the fan instead of mounting it directly to the cab, it'll be quiet coz the fan powered on in hand makes almost no noise. I have some 100mm flexi ducting that could work.

Fuck me did you buy a whole roll of panda film for that tiny space?! Looks good.

Hahaha! Thanks @kimcarsons. I bought 6m of that shit, cost me R90. I have more than half left over even after making the reflector. I'll find a use for it :)

Shot man, i'm yet to start my grow log. I'm thinking of dropping the Northern Lights this week coz I'm going to be plagued by high temps later. I saw 31 degrees yesterday. Not cool
