Help with crawlspace grow room

Discussion in 'Grow Room Design/Setup' started by Calilove08, Jan 1, 2013.

  1. Hello peeps here at grass city I'm new here so I decided to post and ask about my crawlspace being turned into a grow room. From the pics their is a small vent that leads outside that I can use for ventalition. The crawlspace is perfect because the only way to get to it is trough my room. It gets cold in their I put a temp gauge in their and it got to 35 degrees f. I don't want to use the whole crawl space because out here in colorado 6 plants is legal so I'd like to stay at 6. If u guys could shed any knowledge on how I can set this up I would appreciate it. Again I'm new to this forum as I am to growing. I can learn on my own but I jus wanna know if it can be achievable to get good yields..... The pic might be upside down so let me know.

  3. make sure you grow plants that are about 12" tall and use some severe lst. Last year I had an outdoor grow used tent stakes to train the branches. The plants had 4 main branches the grew out to about 3 feet and were about 8" above the ground. Outside I had the sunlight. In your crawl space you might have to be creative with your lights.

    You situation I would build a lightweight box out of 2"x2" lumber and cover it with soundboard with reflextix on the inside. You will have problems getting in there to water for sure.
  4. Personally, i couldnt deal with growing in such a confined space. IMO, being comfortable and having a useful work area are necessities....i likely spend 1-2 hours per day on average in my grow room to water, feed, prune, rotate and inspect my plants. Things like flushing involve multiple hours at a time in the grow room. Just looking at that space is giving my a sore neck and back....i couldnt imagine having to crawl around in there every day to work on my garden.

    Not trying to be a buzzkill, i just dont want you to underestimate the amount of work a grow entails and how much time you will have to be with your want a space that is practical and that you can spend extended amounts of time in, you want to enjoy this hobby.

    Do you have a closet or space inside the house that you could use? You will also have a much easier time keeping temps stable if you can find a better space. Just a couple thing to think about, good luck!
