Attic Grow Room
Hi there to all just got moved into the house and WOW there is some nice Attic space here and I intend...
Wow, that's a decent size attic you have there. The only thing I thought of is air conditioning. Attics tend to get hot during summer months, and I notice you want to add 3 600w lights. So I think you might need some supplemental cooling up there. Good luck.
i would be very interested to know how you will deal with heat in the summer; ad how you will deal with heat fluctuation. I'll keep an eye on this one Good luck!
I have fully insulated the growroom with rockwall all around and then fitted 50 mm Jabba bord all around and installed enviroment controls the room runs at 75 to 78 at all times.
The fans are quite during the day and only kick in when temp get to high about once every 20 mins. Edit Now as the outside temps are rising the fans kick in around every 15 to 10 mins.
The grow room is in fact cooler than the rest of the loft so the insulation is working very well.
I have a very small fan in the room just for lower air circulation.
This is a stagard grow and ime into week 5 here on flowering.
I have enclosed some pictures of the girls progress so far.
The plants are under a 600 hps digital with over run switch on and a light mover. Should be a better pictures in a couple of weeks when the room gets going properly and loads of buds. The weed veriatys in the room are Purple Haze Ajrions haze no3 and some northern lights are going in friday.
Should be a good show so leve your mark any advice is greatly receved here.
This week i put into flower two northern lights in the room so far
4 Purple Haze 5 weeks into flower
2 Ajrions Haze 4 weeks into flower
3 Purple Haze 3 weeks into flower
3 Purple Haze 1 week into flower
2 Northern lights 0 week into flower
14 plants in the room just about fills up the room. I did notice that the room is starting to stink big time inside there wow it smells like god has farted all over the place. But no smell inside the property at all lol.
Here is week 5 update for you all buds are building nicely now and crystals are appearing everywhere on the buds. They are now getting pk 13-14 with Boost in there nutrient. This will advance the production of bud on the girls as these are a 8 week flowering plant.
There are plants of different stages of flower in the room as the most advanced are week 5.
There is some pics of Ajrions Haze no3 that is a Haze that stays small but these are getting quite bushy now.
Let me no what you all think of the plants so far don't be shy leave your comments good or bad.
yep me 2. i would like to know more about your environmental setup mate! how do you keep your temps and humidity stable?
Hi there when i built the grow room in the loft i insulated the room with 100mm rock wall between the rafters and then left a 50 mm gap then I put up 50 mm jabber board (polystyrene) I did this to keep the temperatures stable and to combat the Flair cameras as I live right by a army air base. This makes the room very stable and not under the influence of outside temperatures to much as the loft gets very hot up there.
I have installed a Kilmvator fan control unit with temperture probe and she keeps the room between 75 and 78.
Fan system is a 10" RUK slow with a large can filter for extraction. Air in is by a 6" Fast RUK fan. Both are conected to the fan control system.
Humidity is running at 38% at the moment and has been there for some time. I would like this a little higher say 50% but the unit cost £300 to purchuse and I wont to get something out the room first as all i have done is spend money on this room. pic enclosed
When I go up to the attic in the evening when the lights are on its baking hot in the attic I go into the grow room and its nice and cool in there so its working 100% my design in fact its cooler than the rest of the attic so I have archived what i set out to do. Another good thing as you cant here the fans during the day at all as out of sight out of mind.
This system is working Just look at the plants there bright green no lockup or ill signs.
