I am currently running a (not-so-stealth) cabinet soil grow. I say not-so-stealth because I'm really not worried about security in my current situation. I'm not a dealer and this is for my own personal stash -- in a state where possession is no longer a crime like mine, personal grows are fairly common these days. It's pretty simple to just keep my mouth shut about it and live the dream . However, I am well aware that cultivation is not decriminalized so the unassuming utility cabinet ended up being my approach.
30in x 19in x 36in Resin Utility Cabinet
250w HPS w/ Reflector
68w CFL (just happened to have it lying around)
Fox Farm Products: Big Bloom, Grow Big, Tiger Bloom, Ocean Forest
Plastic 8" pots with a bottom reservoir for superfluous water
Home-made carbon filter (garden fence, vent duct ends/joints, activated carbon, duct tape)
Currently starting week 2 veg for the WW and week 1 of veg for the Bubblegum. These guys got off to a slow start because I had them running solely off the CFL for the first week or so. The entire cabinet is sealed with window sealant and painted white on the inside. There are some light leaks currently that I will address once I line the entire cabinet with mylar. I'll fix the leaks before flowering of course.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some mats or part of the setup. I'll take an additive approach.
Thanks in advance for any guidance you all can give me. This is not my first grow entirely -- but it is my first time going it alone as well as indoors in a cabinet. I haven't finished building the exhaust system yet, so I have been using a household fan to circulate the air in the cabinet.
