The first thing that you will need to consider when starting a grow is where are you going to put it. You must keep in mind that wherever you plan to put your grow it is going to smell, so make sure you place it somewhere that you can easily vent air in and out of the room. We recommend that wherever you plan on growing to purchase a grow tent. Even though a grow tent might bump up your starting cost it will make your life so much easier in the long run. Now once you decide on what size grow tent you want you’ll need to find the best location for it. You’ll want to put it in place that doesn’t get to cold or too hot and has a decent humidity level. Basements, closets, spare room, garage, and sheds are all good location for a grow tent.
Grow tents are great for new growers because they allow you to control the environment that your plants will live in. The optimal environment can be achieved by using carbon filters, fans, humidifiers, and heaters to maintain a perfect balance between temperature, humidity, and air flow.
Keeping the proper room temperature constant is also a key element as the plants will not grow at all if they are not in the proper climate. For the room’s temperature you should be looking for a range of anywhere between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit or 21 to 30 degrees Celsius. The humidity of the room should be anywhere between 40-60%. Humidity is crucial to the growth of the plant’s stocks and roots.
You will also need a fan/fans to create a continuous chain of airflow for the plant as it needs freshly circulated air. Keep in mind that this will also have a small effect on the temperature of the room. The size of the fan is on a case by case basis but should be an approbate size for the size of the room you are looking to grow in.
