Marijuana Growing Room Setup Guide
How to Build a Grow Room
The attention you give to the cultivation of marijuana determines the quality you get from them eventually, you need to be mindful of the environment and use the right tools if you want a bumper harvest of cannabis.
Most people that grow marijuana indoors lose their investment because they use a barn, garage, or shed at the corner of their house. It is advisable to use a large space/room or the surrounding walls around you due to more ventilation that this extension space will provide. Based on experience, many people prefer to use a spare room.
Choosing Growing Equipment
Below are the things you should note before you grow cannabis anywhere, follow these parameters if you want to get a bumper harvest that has vigorous plant growth.
Ventilation: Cannabis Plants need fresh air, don’t hide your cannabis plantation to the extent of killing the plants.

Electricity: Ensure this is done by a professional, a simple electrical error or mistake might burn or ruin your cannabis farm.
Water: This is the bedrock of all plantations; with a proper watering/watering system, you might enjoy a high yield of your weeds. Make sure to do a lot of research before watering your Cannabis Plants.

Surrounding Walls: If you are growing your cannabis in an open space, then you need to build a wall around the plantation for converging and reflecting light accurately.
Air: We all know that plants generally love carbon (iv) oxide, but marijuana is an exception, they also like co2, but they only flourish when they get fresh ones. A carbon filter or co2 regulator to the room you’re marijuana is required if you want to have a high yield.
Indoor Security: Burglars are everywhere in all communities. Ensure you provide enough security for your marijuana plantation.
Temperature: The ideal temperature should be 60°F.

Setting Up a Marijuana Growing Room
Every grower that needs high yield must have a 14ft x 24ft x 9ft space, there must be light everywhere on the ceiling, and use Mylar to conceal the roof. Ideally, you should put your pot containing marijuana between suspended light bulbs, but if you can’t get or don’t have suspended lights, then make sure the light is everywhere in the room.

In terms of ventilation, air ducts are required, and extraction fans for absorbing away hot air while the air-pots replace with fresh air. You also need an Ozone generator tool to eradicate the aggressive smell that occurs in this process
Most expert growers have two rooms for marijuana, the first is for growth/cloning, while the other is for flowering. The vegetative room usually has a cloning platform that permits clones/seeds to grow, but a fluorescent tube that can work twenty-four hours is required. While the flowering room should have a daily 12 hours of HPS and MH features in an outstanding hydroponic weed garden.
The flowering plants grow in the hydroponic garden while seeds/clones spring out from the setup. It takes a few months to see the seed germinate. Flowering plants flourish and thrive in absolute darkness, especially during their dark phase, while vegetation prefers light. If you are sharing a room to grow these two, use black plastic/solid lightproof/curtains to divide these two.
With all that have been said, you need excellent tools to produce high yields of marijuana that are potent. The tools checklist below explains what you need in your marijuana grow room.
List of Grow Room Tools
1) Grow Tent: This will aid you in controlling pests, smell, and light. It will protect your marijuana.
2) Led Grow Light: Make sure you don’t play with this because lightning in the plantation is like food to humans. Many growers confirm the fact that they use led lights; instead of looking for natural sunlight, they acquire reliable grow lights that can run all day. Study shows plants require a minimum of 32W of main power per square meter.
Please note: Led lights might be more expensive, but they are the best because they don’t emit heat like others. High-intensity discharge (HID) is also reliable for growers, but they emit too much heat though HID users usually have ballasts to support the light, but LED still the best for growers.
3) Seed starter plugs: This is a method that is different from the germination method. This is the best all in one tool to grow marijuana. They have the best air to water ratio in the right proportion with delicate peat moss. The process of using seed starter plugs to grow weed involves the simple addition of seed into a pre-seal hole, opening the lid out, pouring water into the hole, and putting it under a led lamp. At the same time, you keep them beside a window to get the balance of warm and fresh air.
When it has been exposed for days beside the window, you will notice that the seed will start sprouting, and your next action is to transfer it to a growing container that has a size of five-gallon at least. It should be there till they start producing flowers.
4) Timer: You might be wondering what’s the purpose of light in a marijuana plantation farm. Light job is to fabricate day and night cycles for your marijuana plantation. Timers have been programmed to change between light and darkness at any time of your choice, but it is recommendable to get timers with a high voltage, which can manage your plantation for days.
5) Oscillating Fan: Though some people call this rotational fan, they give consistent air circulation into your tent; it ensures the eradication of mold found around your plantation and provides the air needed for your plant’s branches. If you have a big tent with a covered roof, you need to hang the oscillating fans so they can get to every plant in the tent.
6) Ducting and Inline Fans: allow ventilation to the grow room, but it requires you to drill two holes at the tent of your farm. The first hole is meant for the fan, which directs fresh air to the grower room, while the other hole gets the stale air out of the grower room. Every standard Inline fan should have an attached ducting that filters the air that passes through it.
7) Scrubber: also known as a carbon filter, is essential for eradicating odors from the grow room and purifying the air. An inline fan is required to remove stagnant air to effectively use the scrubber.
8) Thermo – Hygrometer: This measuring tool determines the moisture and temperature rate in the grower’s tent. This device will give you first-hand information to know if there is an environmental issue in the tent. It is advisable to have a big viewing screen so that you or your workers don’t miss any notable updates on humidity and temperature.

9) PH Meter: This measures your soil and water; this is necessary for all growers; it is essential to have this when growing marijuana because it gives you details about essential parameters. Every grower wants a high-yield harvest. PH meter will help you keep track of how well your plantation is doing before the harvest.
The best PH for a marijuana grower’s room is between the ranges of 6-7, while in a hydroponics environment, a PH level of 5.5 to 6.5 is required. Marijuana doesn’t need a high or low PH rate; they mainly need a balanced level as it has been said. This is one of the most straightforward tools to use; just dip it into your water or soil, and, within a few seconds, you get the PH level.
10) Pruner: This is often mainly used while harvesting, they are usually in pairs, and it helps to trim marijuana plants quickly. Always sterilize this before using it so you don’t infect your plants with bacteria. You can also use scissors for trimming your plants.
11) Watering Can: This is fundamental to keep the plants in the grower’s room hydrated. A watering can with long spouts is recommended; and there are battered powered liquid pumps that help distribute water faster.
12) Ball of Ring:Include this in your toolbox. Some growers use this to hang materials at the tent’s top or attach harvested drying buds. If you have any plants needing support, you can also use the ball of a ring to support the plants for a higher ring. Most people use cable wires, but the ball of the ring is more durable and advisable.
13) Duct Tape: This is like first aid in the grower’s room. This tape fixes damaging plant stems, and you can use it to mend your ventilation to make it airtight.
14) Gloves: You need gloves to not contaminate your marijuana with germs. A sticky residue comes from marijuana during harvest; you want to protect your hands from this by using gloves. Purchase powderless and latex-free gloves to ensure you don’t damage grown buds.
15) Bud Trimming Machine: This and the pruner we previously mentioned do almost identical, but a bud trimming machine does the job faster. This is recommended for marijuana growers that want to reduce their harvest time. This is the best tool if you have plenty of yields to trim.
In conclusion, I believe you have learned one or two things from this article. If you are planning to start growing marijuana indoors and you’re wondering if you need to get all of these tools before starting. No, you don’t need to, but this list will help you choose the resources and tools to complete a successful growth.
