This is my first grow-
And here's my current grow-
It's not turning out like I'd hoped, having started out with 25 good germinated seedlings, but now only with 10 good plants that I'm currently sexing. I think I got bad advice on container size and this is severely limiting my grow, but w/e.
Are you trying to light-proof a container for a growbox or something similar? You should start a journal if you are, the people here can give you some amazing criticism. That and I really want to see your grow.

hey the link didnt help me. im still with the same Q how to get a fan blowing in a closet withoutlight leak. i had exaust like the link before but i moved to a closet and i cant put a hole in the door. now i just have the door craked in the daytime, but i need that nighttime breeze.
Time to think out side the box, can't put hole in door, how about replacing it with a cheap door that you can?
Mira, its better to ask a dumb question than to do it wrong. Checkout the following ppl's grows...dierwolf, Augustwest, smokingjoe68, Mr Postman, spanishfly...I could go on and on but these will be a real good start. After you have done some reading decide what growing method you are going to use, hydro or soil and get the proper medium. What lights you are going to use, you can't have to much light. And finally what control/monitoring devices you will need.
Hope this helps.

What I have done is build a couple of "S" shapes out of pvc pipe and fittings -- about an 8 inch segment of straight pipe and a 90° elbow at either end. Spray paint the insides of these parts flat black before assembly to eliminate light reflecting and passing through. Cut a hole the same size as the pipe, put the pipe through, seal around with caulk, then put the elbows on. Attach a fan as needed.
For other ideas try googling "light trap."

If for intake you don't need much, in fact I just use passive intake and have focused on facilitating good exhaust. For an exhaust fan you probably want some type of inline fan, one that fits into the exhaust pipe. Home Depot has a 6" one for about $25. You can get ones online that run quieter.
Depending where you are exhausting the best to use if you can, IMO, is the Stanley blower. It draws way more than any inline fan and runs about $40 at Wal-Mart (at least used to).

best method is cut a big wide ass hole & staple or tape carbon cooker hood filter matting over it - both sides if u have to.
stops bugs getting in stops smells & light getting out.
u will need to replace it every few months but is really cheap - have a look in ur local electrical appliance shop
