Default First Grow - Closet

Hey everyone I build a grow box about three weeks ago and started growing the next day. My seeds sprouted about 10 or 11 days ago. Here's some pics of my set up:


This is just the outside view of it. It's in the back of my closet.


external view of the intake.


Internal view of the intake. I used a 120mm computer fan.


Inside view of the intake. Used a regular sized computer fan.


An inside shot before I started growing.


The white tube is the carbon filter I made and attached to the exhaust fan.


This is my "control pannel" From left to right: Timer with lights plugged in. Wall transformer powering intake fan. Adjustable voltage wall transformer powering exhaust fan (really handy, I can adjust fan speed easily)


Lit up with four plants growing inside.


Started off as my healthiest tallest plant but started to wilt and look like this. I transplanted it to a bigger pot thinking that wold help but it hasnt.


plant 2


plant 3


plant 4

For lights I am using 3 23w Cfl's (I'm going to buy y sockets and take off the reflectors soon so I can have more light)

I'm using miracle grow potting soil (I know it's bad but it was free)

My plants are growing on an 16/8 light schedule.

I'm pretty proud of how stealth this grow is. I don't even have a door on my closet and It is still absolutely undetectable from anywhere in my room. It's hardly audible at all and completely light tight.

Comments and advice greatly appreciated.

can anyone help me with my sick plant?



This plant started looking like this about 5 days ago and has been growing very slowly ever since.. When it started looking like that it was in a much smaller pot (prior to this it was my healthiest and tallest plant) so I just thought it was getting big and needed a new pot. I did a transplant and nothing got better. Recently the soil has just remained wet while my other plants are "drinking" all of theirs. Anyone know what I should do?

too soon to be getting any def or anything of the sort dude.

I would say leave it be for now. a big mistake most new growers make is loving on the plants to much...lets see what she does in a few days.

it will be stressed from the transplant

yo Diatron

hope all goes well with the new cab. Do you have any plans so far for training or flipping to 12/12 ? I'd say with your limited space and with unknown bagseed it'd be a good idea. I hope they don't stretch too much and give ya any headaches!

Grow on
